Hi Ellecamino... (nice tag)
I was surprised...very sturdy frame !!

The frame is large-tube steel. I put it together myself with a minimum of tools. real rubber tires-inflatable. Will need std bike pump. Very nice construction. I felt the handlebars were a bti sloppy due to design, but OK for trike, and still very safe. TIP: Add Light Bearing Grease to front stem and wheel bearing sleaves...not oil. Found after assembly that it did not roll smooth until I dismanteled and lubed all moving parts.

Question

Does it come with a bell and things that go around the pedals that make them easier to reach for shorter kids?

My nephew got this tricycle for his birthday and it had a bell on the handle bars and a piece that fit around the pedals to extend the pedals on both sides. If it does not come with one or both of these, where can I get them?
