Toys R Us Steer N Grow Trike
Advantages: Sturdy parent handle, easy to steer, rucksack, canopy
Disadvantages: None that I can think of!
Fabulous buy for our son from Ebay. It had only been taken out twice so we had a real bargain.
Its had plenty of use since we've had it and if you're looking for something that's going to last for your ever growing child, this sort of thing is definately recommended! It's built to last, has lasted a year already and has plenty of wear in the tyres yet! It's been used ALOT and been pushed for miles.
What attracted us to buying this for our sons first Birthday was the side bars to keep child nice and safe, with the extra harness as well. The parental steering bar was firm and sturdy which made the trike easy to steer, even with the growing weight of our son.
Our son was able to sit, stand and had just started walking when we first started using it. Basically, he was able to support himself in it, hold the handlebars and we felt reassured by the harness and surrounding bars that he was nice and safe.
The purpose of the trike is to safely push baby around with the parent handle and once baby becomes a toddler, they start to learn to move on the trike themselves. FAB!
My son has idolised this trike since day one. He has happily sat smiling away whilst we'd push him around the park or go for a short walk somewhere. Now he is almost 2, he is constantly saying ' bike ' ' walk' as he wants to go out on it! Cute!
The parent handle is easy to steer, and baby loves it when they have their hands on the handlebars and they move as you steer. I guess it feels to them as if they are driving it. This is especially exciting now my son is almost 2 as he sits on it and says ' bruummm brummmmm'!!
The convenient tray at the back of the trike is big enough to pop something you need to take out with you in, ie a drink, wet wipes, toys even and of course as seen in the picture there is the little rucksack for other items which we used to find useful for popping our phone and keys in! (saves taking your own bag out!) The sun canopy keeps the sun off baby's head and the foot rest can be tucked away when your toddler is old enough to peddle away himself.
Negatives.... not many really although we went through about 3 months of not being able to use it full stop. This was when my son at about 18 months, decided it was great fun to take his feet off the resting tray and place them on the floor. It then became impossible to push. We'd had 6 months use out of it though before he discovered this. We were out of action with it for about 3 months and now are back to using it with him almost 2. He seems to have forgotten all about putting his feet on the floor... phew! He's also been having a go at trying to peddle, although he's not quite able to yet.
It's lovely to see also that he enjoys playing with it in the garden. He likes to push it along and get on and off it himself. This bargain buy was obviously built to last and it's lovely to see how he's now able to get on and off it himself now, but still enjoys going out with us pushing him on it. He can start going a bit crazy with the handlebars trying to steer it himself now as we are trying to push which is quite funny, but now that he is understanding more and more we only have to say ' be careeeeful' and he generally stops doing it (with a cheeky smile)
Very impressed with this buy and a trike worth investing in! I am expecting it to last another couple of years!!
Summary: Well worth investing in - built to last and hard wearing!
