This holiday season, if you’re looking for a gift to invest in for your toddler that will be around for years to come, you’ll want to check out the Radio Flyer 4 in 1 Trike. It’s far from the average tricycle because it’s made for children as young as 9 months and as old as 5 years. The 4 in 1 Trike starts as a stroller, complete with a secure 3-point harness and wrap around tray with cup holder to protect your child.
Then, as your little one grows the trike can be converted (all accessories included) to allow little ones the ability to steer, pedal and eventual take off and ride on their own. My own experiences with Radio Flyer products shows me that the sturdy construction and metal frame will allow your toddler to use this trike for several years until she is ready to move onto a bicycle.
I received a 4 in 1 Trike to share with my own toddler daughter who is now almost 3 years old and in the process of learning to steer and pedal at the same time. Initially, I was a bit overwhelmed by the assembly that is required. I’m one of those parents that would rather pay more for a product that is fully assembled, however, the instructions are easy to follow and the entire process took less than 20 minutes.
Since our daughter is ready to move from the “Learn” to “Go!” stage, we set the seat position to a comfortable distance for her, which can be later adjusted as she grows and let her take off in the house. The quiet ride tires are great for indoor or outdoor use especially during the winter months when it’s too cold to ride outside.
My daughter is in love with the little bucket on the back of the trike. She uses it to bring her Ariel dolls and “sucky blanky” along for the ride.
At just $99.99 I consider the Radio Flyer 4 in 1 Trike one of the best value tricycles available for a product that will last for years.
