I purchased this wheelchair from Ebay as I wanted the earlier model for two reasons. #1- it isnt' lavender, and #2- it's made of metal. This chair has seen lots of action, esp. with a 2 year old pushing it throughout the house, trying to sit on it himself, and moving the legrest levers up and down multiple times. It's quite sturdy and has lots of play value, fits the dolls well and "wheels" around easily too. I give this version of the wheelchair an A+.
