Samantha's Bicycle Item# BKD51 Samantha is rolling toward adventure on her shiny new bicycle—a gift from Uncle Gard! This set includes: A deep-pink bicycle with white accents and tires, a stamped floral chain guard, and a faux-leather seat A woven basket A pretty bouquet of flowers tied with a satin ribbon for Samantha to carry in the basket
Samantha's bicycle is a gorgeous bouquet of colors! Her bicycle is not just a delight to the eye, but it is well designed and nearly every component is constructed like a real bicycle. The front wheel pivots and steers, the wheels turn, and even the pedals rotate. While the bike chain itself does not move, the bike is easily moved forward with a gentle touch of the hand.
No detail is overlooked--the wheels feel like real rubber, the fender has a fantastic subtle flair, the spokes look like the real thing, and even the chain guard has a "Victorian" design etched into it.
The flowers are a simple addition but really complete the overall effect of the whole bicycle.
Samantha balances with ease on the bicycle! For more photos of Samantha, her bike, and a longer critique, visit my blog here.
Overall grade: A+

It feels very substantial to me and the materials seem to be very high quality. I wasn't sure I'd like the plastic "wicker" basket, but it's very nicely done and removable, as well. I think the scale is right on and Avery looks super cute riding her new bike.
I did a video unboxing and review for YouTube. There are more action pics at the end.

I received this bike in April when it was 20% off. I am so glad I purchased it. It is a beautiful piece, and is very reminiscent of the PC days. While it is on supersale, I highly recommend getting it!
