Have you heard of SmarTrike? Even if you think you haven’t, I bet you’ve seen one around the neighbourhood! SmarTrike is a fantastic combination of stroller and tricycle that allows babies as young as 10 months old to toddlers up to the ripe old age of 3 to ride – and play – in style and comfort. Their latest model, the SmarTrike® 4-in-1 Touch Steering Chic Tricycle, is out and causing a stir at the parks and splash pads.
So what sets the 4-in-1 Touch Steering Chic SmarTrike apart from other tricycles? Lets start with the steering. Equipped with SmarTrike’s patented Touch Steering technology, the Chic enables parents to steer the trike just like a stroller when using the parent handle. A simple push of the navigator button and the child is able to steer. It also comes with loads of special features and accessories, such as:
- telescopic parent handle
- extendable UV protective canopy
- bottle holder
- toy phone
- storage compartments
- and more!
It’s called “4-in-1″ for a reason: the SmarTrike Chic has 4 stages that allow children to have more control as they develop the ability to go from ‘along for the ride’ to ‘catch me if you can':
- Stage One – Parent-controlled trike: At 10 months, the baby is comfortably seated in the high back padded seat with full control in the parents hands.
- Stage Two – Guided trike: At 18 months, the back support is removed while still being fully controlled by the parent.
- Stage Three – Training trike: At 24 months, the footrest is folded in and the child learns how to pedal.
- Stage Four – Classic trike: At 36 months, the parent handle is removed and the child can ride independently.
This is a great product for any child between 10 months and 3 years old, but especially for a younger sibling who decides they’re too cool for a stroller but aren’t big enough to power a trike under their own steam yet (been there, lived that). The SmarTrike Chic comes in black or pink and retails for a suggested price of $169.99.
