Toys R Us Steer N Grow Trike
Advantages: Sturdy and accurate steering with lots of useful features. Fits in car boots easily.
Disadvantages: Too difficult for older children to pedal.
Got this when my daughters were approx' 10 months old and they loved it. We bought it in pink and have to admit that the sun canopy, 'back-pack' and side supporting bars all came staright off as although they are well thought out features which will benefit some, they were just too pink for me! The lockable wheels meant that we were able to puch our dauthers around in this long before they were able to reach the pedals properly without fear of their feet getting caught. The parent-steering bar was precise and felt sturdy. Some suspension would be a good up-grade to this design though as it became very bumpy when we took our daughters over anything that wasn't a pavement! We left the bikes outside all year round and the pink has faded considerably but there is no damage to them. The rear of the bike has a 'trailer' which collects rain water extremely well! It would be better it this tilted so that you could tip the water out instead of having to turn the whole bike upside down whilst making show that the water didin't go on you! The bike, when fully assmebled is too tall to fit into the boot of a 4x4 but the parent handle comes off quickly and easily and makes it small enough to fit into the boot of a coupe! Once my daughters turned 2 1/2 they outgrew this as once they are able to pedal the bike on their own, they found it that it takes a ridiculous amount of effort to turn the pedals once you've selected the correct mode. They found pedalling a tricycle far less taxing. However, as an alternative to a pushchair/buggy that makes your child feel much more independent this trike is perfect. Ours has certainly done the mileage and has been passed onto their younger cousin for further use!
Summary: A very good buy for children aged 9 months to approx' 2 1/2.
