Do you know how to choose the best tricycle for your child? The frost is slowly easing and the weather is getting better. This is a perfect pretext for going for a walk. A tricycle will be an ideal companion for playing together outdoors, which will not only support the development of your child's motor skills, but also prepare the child for riding a real bike.

It is hard to imagine a better way to spend your free time in the city than a family trip to the park. Going for walks together, combined with physical activity, not only boost the child's immunity, but also shape positive habits, such as practising exercises. In order to instill in the child the willingness to move and spend time actively, it is worth getting them a tricycle.

However, the choice of tricycles is huge. To make your decision easier, we have prepared an overview of tricycles for a two-year-old, three-year-old and even a year-old that should be considered in 2021. Let's go!

which tricycle shall you choose?

Tricycle - since when can a child ride it?

Since when can a child get on a tricycle? Some of the tricycles you will find are intended for children from 9 months of age. The determinant is always the toddler's readiness to ride (such as sitting on their own), their height and their will to learn how to practise this activity. In the Kinderkraft offer you will find products that allow them to ride a bike from the age of 9 months. This is possible thanks to the three-point or five-point safety harness, a safety bar, a hood and the possibility to rotate the seat backwards to the direction of travel. An example of a tricycle, ideal for children, will be, among others tricycle AVEO or bicycle with a rotating seat EASYTWIST.

tricycle AVEO Kinderkraft

AVEO

This tricycle will make your child love walks! It combines comfort, safety and practical solutions for the parent. It can be used in several ways - thanks to the modular structure AVEO bikes can be transformed into a bicycle for a one-year-old, as well as for older kids - both for those who cannot pedal on their own, and for older kids who want to discover the world individually.

AVEO allows you to change functions quickly and easily. You can easily disassemble the bar, parent's handle and mount the footrests. In just a few moments, you will change a bicycle for a two-year-old who cannot ride alone into a bicycle for a young, independent cyclist.

tricycle EASYTWIST Kinderkraft

EASYTWIST

This tricycle with adjustable backrest combines the benefits of a child's development with the comfort of parents. It was designed to change with the growing needs of the toddler. Thanks to the modular structure and the swivel seat, the child will be able to explore the world back to the direction of travel, and at the later stages of development will be able to freely learn pedalling, and then - real riding. EASYTWIST is a bicycle, thanks to which a child can develop their senses, motor coordination and motor skills during walks.

So, before you choose your dream bike, check the age recommended by the manufacturer. It may turn out that the model you choose does not have a rotating seat and is intended for children at least 3 years of age.

Tricycle - is it worth it?

Tricycles help older children get used to regular physical activity, and at the same time make each walk unique and unforgettable. The kid will have a great time. Tricycles also prepare a child for riding a real bike on two wheels. They teach correct turning as well as correct pedalling. And - just like balance bikes - they provide a great occasion to learn correct behaviour on the road.

The possibility of spinning the pedals develops coordination and motor skills, which has a positive effect on the child's motor development. We are aware, however, that children differ in terms of motor development. That is why we have created tricycles with parts that can be disassembled, and thus - the adjustment to the child is easy. You do not need any tools to disassemble the parent's handle, hood or backrest - you can do everything quickly and easily.

Which tricycle should you choose for your child?

What shall be considered when you choose a tricycle?

Before you buy a tricycle, pay attention to its functions. You can choose a classic tricycle with a handle permanently attached to the structure. However, you can also choose a solution that will serve you and your child much longer.

Of course, we are talking about bikes that combine the functions of a bicycle for independent riding and a bicycle controlled by a parent. They also have additional elements that make it easier to use not only by children, but also by parents.

The most common are:

  • adjustable parent handle,
  • connection of the bicycle handlebars with the parent handle (parent controls the turn),
  • free wheel function (i.e. the possibility of pedalling without propelling the bike),
  • foldable footrest for smaller children,
  • practical accessories (including a basket for small items),
  • easy to clean seat cover,
  • hood protecting the little one against the sun.

  • The aforementioned bikes with a rotating seat for children from around 9 months of age also become more and more popular. Thanks to them, toddlers do not lose sight of their parents during a walk, and they can also rest after the first short walks on their feet. These types of bikes allow you to go out with the little ones without a stroller.

    Tricycles with a rotating seat are offered by, among others: EASYTWIST, SPINSTEP and ASTON. Thanks to their modular structure, they will not only serve you from the moment when the child sits securely and independently - you can easily disassemble individual elements (such as the hood, harness or a safety bar and a parent handle) and transform the bike into an independent tricycle for an older child.

    By choosing such a solution, you will give your toddler a bicycle that will stay with him for many years.

    what to pay attention to when you choose a tricycle

    How to choose a tricycle for a child?

    If you do not know how to choose a bike for a child, first take a look at its construction. Pay attention to the elements described below, thanks to which you will choose a bike age- and skills-appropriate for your kid.

    Pay attention to the following elements:

  • seat height, adjustment of the distance to the pedals,
  • non-slip handles on the handlebars,
  • footrests,
  • basket at the back or at the front of the bike,
  • removable parent handle,
  • simple function change - preferably without the use of tools,
  • additional accessories.

  • The height of the saddle is crucial. It may turn out that your child is taller than the standard or has long legs - in this case, even the best bike will turn out to be a dud. Some bikes have adjustable distance to the pedals - thanks to this, the child does not have to tuck the legs under the chin.

    It is best to assume that the child (for independent cycling) should easily touch the ground with his toes while sitting on the saddle. This will make it easier not only to learn how to start, but also to stop. Thanks to this, getting off and on the bike will also be easier.

    How to choose a bike that would best suit the child's height

    It is best to measure the inner length of the child's legs - this will allow you to check if the child can easily reach the pedals. Thanks to this, you will be able to buy a bike online, without going to the store. Also check the distance between the handlebar and the saddle.

    When choosing a bike, check whether it is equipped with footrests. Smaller children do not pedal, but they need to have footrests to rest on while riding.

We especially recommend the children's helmet SAFETY, which can be additionally personalized by the child thanks to the enclosed stickers.
