Wanted: One Big Wheel; pre-assembled

Big big news here. Friday morning, AJ went #2 on the potty!! (He's going to hate reading this when he's older. I love you, AJ. Forgive me.)

It was very exciting. I was excited for obvious reasons. However, AJ was excited because for months now he has had an agreement with Marc. When we goes poopy on the potty, he was going to get a Big Wheel. Grandpa Dykstra has one at his house and it's the coolest! AJ has been talking about this promise daily now for several weeks... and yet it took him until today, with me reading a Lightning McQueen board book to him, for his end of the deal to take place. (ha... no pun intended).

As soon as he was finished he wanted to call Daddy. Even before he got his M&M reward. AJ told daddy the news, and I went into shopping mode researching and calling around to find a Big Wheel for Marc to pick up on the way home from work. Turns out there was only ONE in the West Michigan area that we could locate. So Marc went and got it during the day rather than waiting.

AJ was so excited when he saw the box. He was constantly monitoring and asking questions as Marc and his buddy attempted to assemble the Big Wheel. However, somewhere in the assembly, something went horribly wrong and let's just say that that specific Big Wheel is not going to be ridden or returned.

AJ seemed to be ok and understand things when Marc told him the news. And it's stinks we are out the cost of the bike... but I'm not sure we can even buy another one. I know, there is always an online option, but they are more expensive and shipping costs and wait time, etc...

So YEA for AJ acting like such a big boy! And BOO for a really hard to assemble product.

You should call the company. If something is that hard to assemble it should be considered defective.

I would call the company. Most companys are very friendly, and the customer is "always right" and they will do everything they can to make you happy. One time the girls broke Cole's bouncy seat, and I called to order the part, and the lady sent it for free and said it shouldn't have broken. I had even told her the truth. She said it doesn't cost them much :D I would call, it doesn't hurt to try. Tell them the truth, and that your little guy is waiting :D
