Great bike for commuting
This is a great bike for commuting, especially if the kids are supposed to bike several kilometres per day. Build quality is very good, and most components are of good quality as well.
The bike could however be improved by including the mudguard attachment points present on the 20" version of the same bike. A further very useful add-on would be the inclusion of a hub dynamo, which for a low added cost would greatly improve the bike for daily commuting. After I added mudguards and dynamo lights myself, the bike is actually worth more than 5 Stars.
