With the Trail Gator lets your child experience riding a bike with an adult in safety. Once assembled no tools are required to fit or remove and you have full steering and speed control. Children revel in being in tow with an adult and can choose to pedal or coast along. With a high strength steel frame the trail gator is extremely robust and will stabilise your child's handlebars for improved balance. A telescopic folding system means that it is easy to store and transport when not in use.

The primary problem is that as they're anchored to the seatpost of the adult bike they really make the suspension bob around. That would be a pain by itself but once you add a child leaning from side to side at the back it means that the adult bike becomes a real handful to ride.
The other problem specific to a trailgator is that when you take it off the bike on a ride (so that the child can ride on their own) you fasten the other end to just above the rear axle. On a normal bike this is fine but the suspension on a full suss bike means that the gap between the axle and the seatpost constantly changes.
If you don't own a full suss bike already I'd go for a hardtail unless you're doing some serious mountain biking with loads of rough stuff. They make pedalling a lot easier (as the bounce takes energy out of your pedalling) and there isn't really that much difference in comfort.
