It's all fun and games until they turn the handle bars and you end up in the middle of the road.

2 this on this...

1: The steering is fixed to the safety pole, so not only would you need a 10 month old with arms like a chimp, but also they would need to be stronger than an adult

2: The seat spins to be rear facing, so if you were really worried then you'd just do that.


I'm also not sure what kind of parent would be pushing at such a velocity to end up "in the middle of the road" by a simple turn of the bars, either. It's a kid's trike, not a GSXR

I'm speaking from experience.

It doesn't take a lot of force from the child to out wrestle an adult holding a tiny grip.
You don't have to walking that fast along a pavement next to the road for it to veer towards the road.

It doesn't sound like you've ever had to try and change the nappy on or get something out of the hands of a toddler. They have the strength of hercules.
My son is 20 months old and already too heavy and too strong for his mum to handle.

​It's experience of this stye of tricycle rather than parenting. It's that the steering pole generally only let's you turn the wheel a small bit in either direction for stability but the toddler can turn it 90 degrees instantly so you cannot correct the turn as fast as they make it. Strangely holding the pole firmly doesn't empower the adult to prevent them turning the handlebars. Though this is true of most of these tricycles. I suspect the mechanics could be done a bit better. I can certainly understand the expectation that it would. I certainly did and am still baffled!

Its just one arms length of a push if the toddler turns the wheel 90 degrees that direction to get to the edge of a footpath. I get the risk the op is referring to. Distractions happen and dips at entrances are more challenging to stability if your front wheel isn't straight. It's just one of those things that has to be experienced to be believed. Just like you don't expect the cheapest graco travel system to defies logic and expectations and pushes like a shopping trolley

Heat added it is a good discount for anyone looking for one. Like every other baby gismo there are pros and cons to all the variations. It is as manageable as much as most others and good value. It has a better sun canopy then most.

Though I must admit to flogging our first trike at 18 months and getting a little tikes that the handlebars could be locked out in parent mode just because it was hard too keep stable as he got heavier and took all day to get anywhere the little one at the time just used to entertain himself turning the handlebars constantly as he was pushed along. Some toddler are more light and petite and I am sure not all toddlers are so facinated with turning and he wasn't as stubborn about it at 10 months anyway.

...which is why the seat turns to be rear facing (away from the handlebars) until they can pedal for themselves.

When you’ve got a toddler, you’ll understand. My son was walking by 10 months and has been into everything ever since
You started the insults with your reference to a GSXR.

That wasn't an insult, it highlighting the hyperbolic scenario you used.

It literally says that it's meant to be rear facing until a kid is capable enough. A prime example of RTFM, rather than crying that it's somehow a dangerous product

​It has 3 modes / stages, it's "Stage 2 - 12+ months: Converts to a parent supported early trike" that gets interesting, but it is manageable. It's the unobstructed view from the tricycle that is so much more than the buggy he loved. Depends on the little ones personality. Rear facing wouldn't give the the same they but it's good value even if the rear facing stage is skipped. A well spotted bargain hope you both enjoy it and thanks for sharing it.

Does anyone have this? Does it have soft rubber wheels or plastic wheels? Thanks!
Oos now on their website, but says 26.99. Might be still available in some stores. I went to have a look in our local as we had a brilliant scooter from this brand but I didnt like this trike unfortunately.
