We were recently picked to be a #littlesmartriker and we were thrilled! We love being outside and as Archie is getting bigger now it is nice for him to be able to ride in his trike instead if being strapped into his pushchair. Although the British weather has been pretty rubbish for the last few months whenever we have had the chance to get out we have.
Before our trike arrived I did have high expectations as SmarTrike are defiantly the leaders in the trike market and a lot of my friends have them for their babies and have raved about them. Their trikes have multiple awards globally and have been running almost 10 years and within those years have developed amazing trikes that develop with our babies, grow and evolve with them and they are always developing and launching new trikes that will help the development of your child. When a brand are putting that much in to it you know their trikes must be great!
When our Explorer 5-trikes-in-1 arrived it was quick and easy to put together and the instructions were so easy to follow. Within 15 minutes we were ready to go. I put our trike together whilst Oscar was at school so afterwards we could go for a walk and take Archie out in his new trike. The trike itself is really well made and I couldn’t wait to try it out. In the box is:
The Explorer 5-trikes-in-1, storage bag which can fit shopping or a picnic in, an extendable canopy, play phone, bottle holder and a zip mini bag that fits on the handle which is perfect for your phone, purse and keys.
My first impression of the trike was that it is so easy to manoeuvre, it handles just like a stroller would and can be used with one hand. Archie seems really comfortable in the padded seat and if we are out and he has a nap the seat reclines to keep him nice and comfortable and supported. The trike is fine on any surface, at our local park the car park surface is pretty horrendous and I thought it would make Archie bounce all over the place but with the inbuilt suspension it was absolutely fine. The UV extendable protection canopy is large which is great as it keeps the sun out of Archie’s eyes and will keep him protected in the warmer weather (if we get any!) Archie loved being in the trike and is constantly looking around and getting excited as he is at the same height as Oscar when he is running next to him and he is constantly looking up to Oscar and wants to join in with him and now he can.
The trike is suitable from 10 months to 3 years and grows with your child and their needs. The Explorer 5-trikes-in-1 has an RRP of £119.99 and I think is worth every penny for the quality and amount you are getting with your trike! It comes in Red, Grey, Blue, Orange, Purple or Green.
I really love our SmarTrike and am super impressed with it and can’t wait to have lots of SmarTrike adventures over the Summer! We are going to have so much fun.
