My son is almost 3 and was able to ride this board with no problems. The design of the board is great. He never caught an edge, not once and he could have many times. Overall great board!!!! I also purchased the Riglet. The Riglet bolts to the front of the board and allows you to pull your son/daughter around without having them unbuckle. This made it really to ease my son into riding. I could pull him up the hill and let him ripe, with out going on a lift. We did go up the lift once, a little nerve racking with a 2 1/2 year old but he loved it and barreled back down the hill!!!
