Well I’m not sure about where you live but its been a fantastic couple of days weather wise as well as having a few cheeky weekends of sunshine as of late meaning we have been able to get out and about as a family and enjoy some of the outdoor places we love… Rather than take our usual stroller, we made one fundamental change… we took D’s Little Tikes Trike instead.
Ever since we had the opportunity to spend the day with Olympic Long Jump Champion Greg Rutherford and his family using our 4 in 1 Deluxe Trike, we have continued to use it over the past year through the seasons and through D’s development.
As we love our Trike so much, we were lucky enough to be one of five families challenged by Little Tikes to stroller swop and video ourselves out and about, well more importantly our Little Triker out and about enjoying breaking free from the usual pushchair or stroller and feeling like they are on the adventure with us rather than being stuck bored in their usual stroller.
I do admit I was expecting to find filming our impatient 19 month old to be a “challenging” experience however from the moment we popped her into the Trike, she transforms into a mini queen.. waving, smiling and clearly enjoying being close to the action and exploring the world at a whole new level.
We use our Trike for various things whether that be:
- Trips to the shops with the help of the the trikes usual storage bucket
- Trips to the local park
- Picking H up from school
- Off roading on a Sunday afternoon walk
- A car journey further afield to some of our favourite county attractions
- Chasing after the Ice Cream van
It doesn’t matter if your going nearby or further afield, the Little Tikes Trikes take up just the same amount of space as a standard stroller in your car boot so why stick with the norm… change really is good with Little Tikes and Little Trikers….
Growing with your child from 9 months to 3 years+, any one of Little Tikes 5 different Trikes help your little one learn how to ride, steer and finally pedal. Their latest 5-in-1 Deluxe Ride & Relax Recliner Trike not only adjusts to three different positions to ensure comfort, it also reclines to allow for a nap too! Throw in a whole host of features such as detachable easy grip handle for parent control, 5-point seat belt harness and safety bar, padded soft seating, removable shade canopy, durable quiet-ride tyres, convenient beverage holder, packing bag or storage bucket for additional trike storage. You can find more about the 4 stages which the Trike can turn into as your toddler grows as well as the other Trikes available by checking out the Little Trikers site.
