Trikes can play an important role in a young child's development. At around 2 or 3 years of age, toddlers begin to show increasing signs of independence and become more comfortable venturing farther and farther away from Mom and Dad. A tricycle helps these youngsters attain a level of freedom and mobilitythey simply cannot get withordinary non-pedal ride-on toys.
Tricycles are also terrific tools for self-directed and group play, which makes them ideal for daycare centers or preschools. Follow the leader, mini obstacle courses, and races are just a few of the activities youngsters can participate in with their trikes. All of these games help improve stamina, build leg strength, and develop motor skills as the child coordinates the movement of hands, body, and feet to propel the tricycle forward, increase or decrease speed, and steer in different directions.
Our heavy-duty PlayTime trikes are terrific starter vehicles for children aged 2-4. Available in red or blue, they are made of a durable welded steel frame that is powder coated to protect against rust and scratches, and feature a broad seat, easy-reach handlebars, and solid rubber tires to provide the smoothest ride possible.Each trike is also sturdy and well balanced, with a low center of gravity to help prevent tip-overs.
In order to enjoy a PlayTime trike to the fullest, your child should be able to sit in the seat without external support and grasp the handlebars firmly while maintaining contact with the pedals. We also recommend the use of helmet at all times to prevent head trauma in case of an accident.
