If you’re looking for the latest in cool rides for your growing toddler, look no further than the Little Tikes 5 in 1 Deluxe Ride and Relax Trike on which they can learn the skills of steering, cycling and navigating in style. The Little Tikes 5 in 1 Deluxe Ride and Relax grows with your child as they progress from enjoying the ride directed by you to leading the way on their own journey. Featuring a reclining seat to enable a truly relaxing ride, the trike adapts to your little one’s needs and with a simple flip of a switch you can adjust the seat to support your child’s position.
We were lucky enough to test out this super cool ride and our verdict at View from a Daddy is 10 out of 10 for features and of course the cool factor too. We took the new wheels out with a nearly three year old to test its durability on a rather bumpy terrain where it withstood the challenges encountered – and my did we get some glances of admiration as others rolled past with their flapping canopies and flimsy looking chassis. The trike was easy to fix together with step by step instructions. Complete with a harness, you can be assured that your little traveller is securely in place when you are in control of their journey. The guidance steering handle feature has smooth manoeuvrability and even comes with a tray for your keys and phone as well as a cup holder so you can enjoy the ride too. A larger storage tray sits behind the seat to hold bigger items – we used this to store wellies and our rucksack so it offers sufficient space for a day of adventuring.
The soft and stylish seat makes for a comfortable ride. While the protective framework ensures that your little explorer stays put on the trike. This feature is swiftly removed when the trike becomes a vehicle that your youngster can drive independently. Styled in a funky pepper red with hints of reflective grey, this is a super funky trike. We journeyed out on a sunny afternoon when the canopy came into its own. With a hood designed so that it can to be retracted, this is one of the best features of the trike when compared with other similar products on the market. Although we had the sun during our ride out, there was a breeze but this was no problem for the Little Tikes 5 in 1 Ride and Relax as the canopy design stayed put (in fact our counterparts on the ‘road’ had to receive a helping hand from their parent drivers who held their trike’s canopies in place – with a smug smile, we sailed on past in style). The Little Tikes 5 in 1 Ride and Relax definitely holds pole position in the trike race and promises to be a great ride as your toddler’s cycling ability evolves.
