My Nephew turns one soon and with this in mind we knew that when Little Tikes offered us the chance to review the Little Tikes 4 in 1 trike Sports Edition (red) we knew that Little Bear would absolutely love a new ride! He has taken to being a #littletriker and here are the thoughts on their experience!
When we opened it up we found many pieces and the instructions, which were fairly easy to follow but did result in a few attempts to get pieces on the right way (we had the brake the wrong way at first which seems to be a common mistake looking at other photos). All you need is a screwdriver and it took 2 of us about 20 minutes to build.
We were impressed with the quality, look and detail of the trike. Our 11 month old son instantly loved it and was ready to go as soon as we strapped him in – he is a wriggler and so we were pleased with the 5 point harness combined with the security handle to keep him safe and sound (and it did).
The shade is also really sturdy which I was not expecting when compared to others I had seen on the market, when I moved it to shade him from the sun it actually stayed in place and ensured he was protected.
We have used it on pavement and ‘off road’ in local parks. It handles really well and the rubber on the wheels cushions bumps well so feels really smooth as you cruise along.
It is light and gave the boy a chance for a good look around as we walk along, he’s wanted to be upright and looking in his pushchair for a while now so the trike was perfect for him too. He also had fun stroking our dog who walked alongside him!
I particularly like that this will grow with our family and have some good use over the years as he develops.
