Is it worth getting a wheelybug if we've got carpets?

... just that really. Anyone know if it works on carpet or whether you need wooden floors? Am looking for a 1st birthday present. Also - is there any point in getting the smaller one or will she grow out of it straight away?

We have carpet all over and lots of rugs - the wheelybug zooms around the place with no trouble at all. DD is 15 months and has the small one - it doesn't look like she'll grown out of it any time soon (she's pretty small). Tbh, she doesn't sit on it she prefers to push it around at high speed and use it as a battering ram hmm. It is one of her absolute favourite toys though.

Yes totally, I got my dd one for her first bday. Fine on carpets or in the kitchen.

I got the small and her feet touch the floor but I don't think she's quite big enough to scoot around on it yet, and she is fairly tall. I would say get the small one for a one year old.

She spends most of her time walking around pushing it, despite the warnings saying that's not what it was for

Ah yes, the battering ram maneuver also
