Strengths:    This is the lightest I could find. Good chain guide (compared to Specialized, those chains seems to pop off more on trails), derailleur guard - because kids always bang into things.

Weaknesses:    Short top tube, relatively high stand over clearance, no front QR.

Bottom Line:   
Meanwhile, the frame is a bit cramped on him, but he is too small for most 24" bikes.

It's a great value, really light frame, but I had to add a few things to it to make it work how I wanted. The longer Specialized bikes would fit my kid better now, and now he is more willing to go out on the trail with me.

Good if your kids has long legs compared to torso. (my kid is average)
