Maplin Childrens Ride-on police bike for £39.99

Hi there,

This ride on, code N70CZ, was advertised on this site in the summer as it was more than half the original price.

See - maplin.co.uk/Mod…484

We were in the market for a ride on as a gift for our daughter's birthday and decided to buy it early.

When we opended it we discovered it was way too small, but we were too late for the money back guarantee.

The ad still claims its suitable for age 3-7yrs but its clearly not and my daughter who has just turned 5 will brake it if she continues to use it.

I am naffed off that we wated money and also disapointed our daughter with this dinky ride on and have today been in contact with Maplin as I feel like we might as well have just thrown the cash down the drain.

They are going to get back to me, but didnt sound very interested in helping.

Anyone considering purchasing one of these should beware, I have asked maplin to remove the age description as i believe its misrepresentative of the product.

Have to agree in a way, although I would argue till i got a refund, lol.

Threaten them with trading standards if you get no joy, providing your daughter is an average size for a 5 year old I'd say the item isn't fit for the age it states.

I agree with you both as well, but my point is they are still promoting is for this age group. At the very least they should do something about that cos its misleading.

I am waiting for them to get back in touch with me, at the end of the day if she keeps using it, its gonna break or develope a fault.

it is very very slow due to too much weight etc

My daughter is im proportion for her age.
