We shopped around quite a bit when choosing a trike for our little girl and decided this one looked like great value and that it would last a long time considering how quickly babies and toddlers outgrown their toys.
The trike's design is advertised as 'four in one'. This alludes to the four stages of use:
1. Parents pushing the trike by a long handle at the back
2. Parent guided
3. Child assisted
4. Child powered
There are a number of features that change or can be removed as your child grows, like safety straps and safety bars to stop them toppling out. the little sunshade and storage bucket are nice features too.
The picture looks pink but it is more of a purple colour. It appears to be a good quality item and well made. We used it a lot when we lived near a river with a paved route alongside it as it was perfect for the area. Since moving to a different area we have definitely used it less and I now want to see if my Daughter is ready to use the pedals and power the trike herself. It is great to have the option to try something new with it rather than her having outgrown it, toddlers change so much from age one to age two after all.
I have to say my Daughter really really liked using this trike. At one stage she was not fond of using a buggy and would much much rather use this trike to go to the shops in - much more fun for her!
The only negative that I can think of is that is quite noisy, the sound of the wheels trundling around as you push it over concrete used to make people turn to look and I felt that we sometimes disturbed people enjoying sitting on their front porches enjoying a quiet afternoon.
