Fun for Little Ones
We purchased two of the Little Tikes 3-in-1 Smart Trikes for our one year olds. We thought this trike would be a great alternative to taking walks in the stroller. First, the trike is easy to assemble out of the box. The harness is excellent for the younger children. It provides great support and the actual harness is very secure. With proper supervision, the trike is steady and durable. However, if a child does pull on the handle, the trike easily tips backwards. The sunshade does provide some protection from the sun, but it easily blows backwards in the wind. The trike is easy to push in a straight line. However, make turns can be difficult. Extended pushing of the trike caused my back to ache. We have transitioned to using the actual trike with pedals. The switch is easy to make. Now that they are older, my kids are enjoying the trikes more by using the pedals. Overall, I think this is a nice option for walks in the neighborhood, but it can be difficult to push for an extended period of time.
