The details on this little Tricycle are wonderful! It is fully made of metal and has white rubber for the tires. The peddals for the tires them selves are plastic. Attached to each is an elastic strap that will slip over her shoes but under her spats. It keeps her held nicely into place. Once she is strapped on you can then roll the bike with her on it right across the floor. The peddles move seperate from the tires. Yet it's funny, when you turn the peddals is can move the tire. Well done really.
The seat is set onto two springs that actually flex with enough pressure. The seat is made from a molded soft plastic. Made to resemble leather I guess. The other part of plastic are the handles. Would have been nice to have had wood but oh well.
The little basket you attach with two small belts are adorable! Nicely made and fits perfectly. Inside she can take her flower boquet that has some matching teal ribbon.
All in all I give the cycle an A and ****
This item is the must have for her collection, in my opinion! If you are going to have one furnishing item for her, this should be the one!
The Wheel Base is 8" Back Wheel 6.5" Handle Bars 8.5" Height 13" Seat Height 10.5" Length is 14"
That may not help much. I can stand two dolls and they take about the same amount of space together. My guess is that Sam's desk is a little larger in the width and length.

Aside from the original furniture, this is one of THE best peices in Sam's collection. It's mostly metal, with a rubbery seat and wheels. The basket on the front is adorable, as are the flowers. SA did a great job describing it, so the only thing I have to add are some pictures.
As you can see, it's pretty tall.
But Sam sits on it perfectly. I usually only use one of the pedal straps, and it holds her on well enough.

Really amazing piece. Made of metal, the wicker basket is too cute. I think it's one of my favorite AG items. The elastic loops on the peddles can be harder for a younger child to use and they may need help. But the doll looks so cute displayed on it.

Here's a picture of two dolls on the bike to show how it works. The doll hitching the ride can either face the girl riding the bike or face the other way. Surprising, once you get the stowaway's balance correct she will stay on until you take her off.

And Cécile makes eight...and maybe room for one more.
