I work in the bike industry and I’m used to high end bikes so the Zulu One was a no brainer for my just turned 2 year old kiddo to start learning how to pedal on. Things that really stand out are the aluminum frame and fork, the disc brakes, smaller diameter handlebars for little hands, and geometry that encourages off road use. This bike is really dialed out of the box and there’s nothing I would change except reducing weight which would be difficult since this is a ‘real’ mini mountain bike. My kids height is 35inches and uses a seat height of 14inches on his run bike. The Zulu one is a tad big for him which is perfect since he’s not fully ready for it yet.
