Toddler Adventures with the Little Tikes Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike

I can remember the look of disappointment when Trevor found out that his baby brother wasn’t able to join him on his bike rides at just a 3 days old. He had seen the bike trailers and the toddler seats on bicycles in the past and automatically assumed that his baby brother would be joining on the family bike rides.

Thank-you Little Tikes for providign the Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike.

Although still too young to ride his own bike, Baby Boy is now able to join the family on his Little Tikes Perfect Fit™ 4-in-1 Trike. Instead of pushing him in the stroller during our afternoon stroll, he can ride in his fun Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike while I push it and the older boys ride their bikes. There’s even a convenient tray with beverage holder for the parents and a small storage area on the child waist bar to hold small snacks or a sippy cup. We never know where our outdoor adventures will lead us and can be prepared with a few small snacks, water, and sippy cup.

Life with three kids gets busy, but I always try to make time for family activities. One of my older children’s favorite activities is riding bikes, so almost every afternoon we try to get at least a small walk/bike ride in, we usually only have time to walk to the end of the street and back, but other nights when we have no sports or afterschool activities we’ll head out on longer adventures.

The Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike makes our little guy feel included and he gets so excited when I pick him up and buckle him in. He loves to be able to grab the handle bars and ride his bike just like his big brothers.

In stage 1 the Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike is perfect for walks around the neighborhood and to the bus stop. At 14 months old Baby Boy is on the smaller percentile for his height and still needs at least a solid 5 inches in order to be able to reach the pedals. I’m looking forward to next summer when I’ll be able to remove the waist bar and watch him pedal around the driveway just like his big brothers.

*Our first trike was hard to push but after a call into customer service, we received a replacement and the wheels spin much smoother and the trike is easy to push, there should be no resistance when the break is disengaged. 

 

 

The Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike can be used for infants as young as 9 months all the way up to 5 years old, or 50 lbs. The first stage is for the younger children and the parents can push and steer. As the child grows the child can learn how to pedal while the parent steers.  In the third stage after the toddler learns to pedal the bike, parents can remove the waist bar and the child can steer, but the parent can still have control when needed with the push bar. Once the child pedals and can steer all on their own, the push bar can be removed.

Purchase the Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike on Amazon, available in Pink, Blue, or Teal.
