My lucky daughter got the wonderful opportunity to test-ride a smarTrike Splash 5-in-1 around Melbourne Zoo yesterday.
What a fabulous bike this is!
At an age where she thinks she is a bit too old to sit in a restrictive pram, but still too young to be able to walk for hours on end; this is a brilliant solution.
Not only does little-miss-independent feel like she is in control of where she is going, with being able to peddle and help steer; but parents also have the convenience of a large washable and removable storage bag, as well as a clutch-size zip bag to put keys/phone etc.
This durable trike will last for years, as well as adjusting to your child’s growth throughout 5 stages of their development.
Stage 1: At 10 months baby is strapped in with padded high-back support.
Stage 2: At 18 months parents can push and control the trike. Baby enjoys the ride while developing confidence, balance and motor skills.
Stage 3: At 24 months it becomes a training trike - kids learn to pedal.
Stage 4: At 30 months, remove parent handle, switch navigator button and the product becomes an independent trike that kids pedal by themselves.
They also come in a range of fashionable colours and styles, sure to impress even the most stylish toddler.
