Bottom line

The Dynacraft Magna Major Damage was seen as a bike that got the job done, for growing kids between four and six. Three-year-olds were more comfortable on the 12” model. The bike wasn’t without its faults, but some parents noted in reviews that this wasn’t a huge concern, as many children will outgrow their bike within one to two years. The Major Damage was enjoyed by both boys and girls. The biggest downside of this bike was that forks were occasionally bent in transit. It seems as though the manufacturer is now packaging the bike to prevent minor damage. Anyway, for this price, you can keep your bank account safe from major damage.
