Our baby is turning one soon and it’s exciting time for us to pick his first tricycle. I would say all tricycles have some flaws, but as always with baby gear there is no perfect product. I focused my search on looking for tricycles with handle, since our little one won’t be able to do the pedals yet.
My top 3 short list:
Age: 10-36 m
- high quality
- easy to assemble
- excellent back support and foot rest
- lots of storage and parent bag (mommy’s phone and sunglasses will be safe now)
- weight (11.7 Pounds or 5.3 kilo), moms living in the city will approve
- only 2 colors available (blue and red)
- plastic wheels (I would prefer rubber, but oh well)
- max age is 36 month versus 60 month or 5 years in competitors
Decision: We chose it for good value for the money, being lightweight and having foot rest. I’ll write the full review later after using it.
Age: 9-60 m
- nice design
- good quality
- cup holder for the baby
- no footrest
- only 2 colors to pick from- red and pink
- lots of reviews on Amazon say about squeaky noise made by the wheels
- 2 handles to push. Hate those 2 handles since my bad experience with umbrella stroller experience. I’m the mom who likes talking on the phone and pushing a baby simultaneously, so I have just one hand to do each.
- long time to put together
Decision: since there is no footrest and squeaky nose it’s a no.
Age: 9 to 60 m
- my favorite design
- price (it’s currently on sale for 74,99$ as of June 12,2017)
- variety of colors (tile, blue, orange and pink)
- rubber foot platform that offers a comfortable ride while keeping your child’s feet away from the pedals in Stage 1 until 18 month or whenever your little one reaches the pedals.
- parent bar and cup holder. But on the other hand I always spill stuff with that cup holder. Do you?
- poor quality and cheap materials
- hard to assemble
Decision: since my husband hates building anything this tricycle was out of question.
