When I was looking for a tricycle for my toddler these were my needs: a trike that did not lean back too much (little legs have to comfortably reach the pedals), solid construction, and a bucket (to hold my keys). When I look at the features on the smarTrike I realize they were must-have items left off my list. I love that it has a safety bar (to keep kids safe). I appreciate the seat belt (especially when you consider it can be used for babies). I adore that they thought of the “stuff” you take on an outing and supply a an easily accessible bag. And best of all, the handle for parent steering (genius!).
Bonus points for producing kid gear which grows with your child. I love a 4-in-1 like this because you can use it over seasons and through years. It’s like a gift which keeps on giving!
When I think back to when I had my first daughter – I spent afternoons upon afternoons, crouching down and pushing her around the block on her beloved plastic tricycle (ouch my back). The tricycle she wanted to take to the park but I knew she couldn’t pedal all the way there on her own and I just didn’t have it in me to push and steer all the way there. The tricycle which lasted just one season before it had to go to the recycling bin. It was not a good investment.
The smarTrike?! Good investment (and really not that much of an investment – it’s competitively priced). Metal construction and rubber wheels prove this trike will last more than a season. And the versatility of it allows for you to use it in different child stages (and hello?! pass it on to your 2nd child!).
A smarTrike would make a great holiday gift. Or baby shower gift. Or birthday gift! It’s functional and fashionable. It encourages families to get outside and do some physical activity. It connects families in an activity together. And activities together make up childhoods
Disclosure: #spon. And I truly think the idea of a push handle trike is genius. As always, the opinions on this post are my own.
