We were recently asked if we would like to review a Little Tykes trike, of course we accepted as Kier loves nothing more than going out for walks and his old trike was starting to look a bit worn.
I had forgotten all about the Trike review and then when it turned up i just wanting to set it up straight away and try it out. I had never put a trike together before, that is always a job for Daddy! Problem was Daddy wasn't due home for a few hours and Kier and I wanted to try out the Trike right away!
I put Kier's favourite tv show on to keep him amused and i set to work on assembling the trike! (first time for everything!) it looked a little confusing, but i had my instructions to hand so how hard could it be?! It was just like putting a jigsaw puzzle together... a huge 3D jigsaw puzzle!!
40 minutes later we had a fully assembled trike!!! 45 minutes, i had never put anything like this together before and it only took me 45 minutes! We tried the Trike out in the house as it was a horrible rainy day outside. Kier couldn't wait to get on it! He loved putting his feet on the pedals, a great way to prepare him for riding a real bike! He got off the trike a few times to put some toys in the bucket at the back, he soon got back on. We all love using this trike, it's perfect for Kier's age (23 months) and I love the fact that it can be used from a young age right up until he is 3!
What we love about the Trike
This trike includes some really useful little features. I just love the storage bag up by the handle bars, perfect for putting essentials in, like if i'm nipping to the local shop i can put my purse in there so i don't have to worry about taking my handbag! There is also a little juice bottle holder, which is fantastic as it saves space in the storage bag!
I also love how quiet the trike is, there is no squeaking and no sound coming from the wheels, a smooth and perfect ride!
The sunshade is very useful, the sunshade on our last trike broke after a few months. This one is very sturdy and shows no signs of damage even after using it for a few months.
We found the adjustable harness very useful as Kier has quite a fat tummy! We were able to adjust it so as it fits him just right but is also nice and safe.
What Kier loves about the Trike
Kier loves the bucket at the back of the Trike, he always takes his favourite toys along so when we get to the school playground he can get out of the trike and play with his toys that he has brought along!
We are hoping it wont be too much longer til we can remove the parent handle and let Kier have a go of cycling his "big boy" trike!
We are loving the Little Tykes 4 in 1 Trike and highly recommend this one if you are thinking of buying a Trike :-)
