Maddox Loves his new Smart Trike so it's no wonder why Smart Trike is the the world leader in the tricycle field and the winner of many awards. For me, it's a fun alternative to a stroller. The Smart Trike is great for strolls though the park or mall, visiting the zoo and amusement parks. We have memberships to the San Antonio Zoo and SeaWorld and I plan using my Smart Trike for all these adventures. It's light weight, easy to use and it grows with you child. The newest model is the 'Dream' its "Touch Steering" enables you to easily maneuver the trike.
I prefer the Smart Trike over a stroller because Maddox is always trying to climb out of his stroller, mostly likely because he isn't enjoying the ride. Nothing exciting about riding around in a plain 'ole stroller. He can sit in his seat comfortably since it was designed to sit your child comfortably at any stage.The seat offers high back support with padded seat cover and safety bar.
It was very, very easy to put together. It should only take minutes to get it all pieced together and does not require any tools with the new 'click' assembly. I probably could have gotten it put together a lot quicker if I hadn't put on the handle bars on backwards. Opps! I should really slow down and read directions.
The Dream touch Steering 4-in-1 has patent pending Swivel Wheel technology, shock absorbent wheels and built in suspension for a smooth ride for you little one. The Smart Trike is Stylish, fun and comfortable. It can transform into 4 unique styles to accommodate children from 10 months old to 3 years old.
The 4 Stages
1 - Parent Controlled trike from 10 months. Extra back support, safety padding with over the shoulder seat belts and handle bar clutch that locks the handlebar.
2 - Guided trike from 18 months. Still provides parental control. Back support and extra padding can be removed but the side handle bars remain for child's safety
3 - Training trike from 24 months. The footrest is folded in and the pedals are folded out. The handle bar clutch is unlocked so the child can start mastering the handlebar movements.
4 - Classic trike is from 30-36 months. The parent handle bar and child can ride around on their own.
The Smart Trike is a perfect gift for any little one and would make an excellent 1st birthday gift. Something both child and parent will enjoy. Maddox really loves riding in his.
