  Is any assembly necessary?

Yes, but it's really as easy as a, b, c. The handlebars have to be mounted on the fork, that's it! One screw and the appropriate tool come with the shipment. Tires might need to be inflated, too

  Does the Glider Riderô have a limited turning radium to help prevent spills?

That's an issue that the manufacturer PUKY, Gmbh explored with the design of their "unlimited rotation handlebar" vs. the wooden-style bike's 45-degree turning limitation. According to the manufacturer's research limiting the handlebar rotation is actually LESS safe than the Glider Rider's design as it positions the opposite side of the handlebar to be in a braced upright position to injure a rider.

PUKY also examined the risk of turning at speed with a limitation and without a limitation. They found that because of the low-step through design (which is also NOT present in the wooden-style bikes) the Glider Rider offered more safety and learning capacity because the bike simply falls over and, in most instances, the child can remain in a standing position whether or not they turn past 45-degrees. THIS FEATURE IS ONLY AVAILABLE IF A GLIDE PLATE WITH A LOW-STEP THROUGH EXISTS.

A logical conclusion is that the design of the wooden bike's handlebar limitation is more a result of the lack of a low-step through design which, interestingly enough, also limits the enjoyment of the riding experience and the learning capacity for balance and coordination.

  Wouldn't the Glider Rider be the the perfect stroller alternative in places like the malls, amusement parks and as a tool for preschool and kindergarten Phys. Ed programs?

Most definitely! Numerous pre-schools are already enjoying the PE benefits. Malls are ideal and we put your question into practice at Sea World Orlando when the park's personnel permitted us to bring our Glider Riders along as a self-directed, partial weight-bearing gait therapy tool for autistic spectrum disorder children. What a joy that was!
