Bought this for my newly turned three year old son. His older brothers started when they were five, but he is was feeling left out, so saw this package , and for the price could not resist getting it. Glad I did. He may only be 30 lbs , but man can he ride the board. He learned to turn so easy and is able to stop as well. Never took any lessons , just spent an hour out on the hill with his big sister. I believe my son has a natural talent, but also that this board is incredible in teaching and responding to the littlest there are. My kids all ride Burton for a reason, and this just further proves it. The Board is adorable, the bindings are easy enough that he knew from the start how to get in and out of them. The boots are easy to step into with velcro easy for little ones to adjust on their own. The carrying bag is a godsend because now he can carry his board,boots, helmet, gloves and hat in the bag (it is roomy but not too big). If you have a little one and he wants to learn to ride, give this package a chance, because it will be the best start you could ever hope to give your little one.
