Five For A First: Trikes We Like

Somehow without me really noticing

Edie Mae has turned 10 months old

In less than two months

It will be her first birthday

I cannot believe how quickly the past 12 months have flown

How much my baby has changed and grown

I feel very emotional thinking of all the firsts we will never have again

But I am also ready

For toddler adventures

I am ready to set the wheels in motion

For the next leg of our family journey

As we count down to Edie’s first birthday

I am going to be relaunching an old blog series

Updating it for 2018

Five For A First

Is all about recommending gift ideas

For baby’s first birthday

Each post will contain five similar products

Or showcase five toys or gifts from one particular brand

We are starting today with Trikes We Like

As a symbol of moving on

From the baby daze to Toddlerhood or Toddlerdom

A trike makes a great ‘big gift’ for a first birthday

It makes a great present from parents

Or a generous first gift from grandparents

A trike is a sure sign that baby is growing up

Leaving the confines of a pram or pushchair

Ready to see and explore more of the world around them

Little Tikes Fold ‘n Go 5-in-1 Trike


This trike will grow with your child in five different stages

Stage 1- Recline (9 months) parents have three positions to recline the seat

Stage 2- Stroll (9 months) parents can steer the trike with the waist bar in place so the child is unable to turn the wheel

Stage 3- Push (12 months) remove the waist bar so the toddler can now steer while parent still has control using the parent push handle

Stage 4- Learn (18 months) remove the footrest so the child can learn how to pedal while parent pushes

Stage 5- Ride (30 months) remove the push bar to let the child pedal and steer on their own with parent supervision

The Little Tikes Fold ‘n Go has a unique folding design for easy portability

An adjustable & removable parent handle

A reclining seat with soft fabric cushion

Stow-away footrests

Pedals fold in for safety

UV protective canopy

Stowaway footrest

Zip ‘n Go storage bag

Soft safety bar

Three-point seat belt

Quiet ride tyres

It seems to me that Little Tikes have thought of everything

”Life was meant for good friends and great adventures”

Foxrider Retro Tricycle


I love this trike

It reminds me of my own childhood trike

Though mine was read





An investment piece as really advised for 18 months plus

But would make a gorgeous first birthday gift

”Adventure is worthwhile.” -Aristotle

My First Trike

my first trike

This Kids 2 in 1 Tricycle is great

It adapts to your kids needs as they grow

When your little one is first starting out

You can use the removable, height adjustable parent handle to steer them

When they are confident they can go it alone

Simply remove the handle and away they go

The seat is adjustable in 2 positions to grow with your toddler

At less than £30 this is great value for money

”Adventure Awaits, Go find it.”

Little Tikes Perfect Fit 4 in 1 Trike


The Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike grows with your child

First, the parent pushes and steers

Then, as the child grows, the parent steers while the child pedals

Once your little one has mastered pedalling, you can remove the waist bar and now they can steer

The last stage is when the child pedals and steers all by themselves

This Trike has a large storage basket

And lots of safety features

It is a good looking trike too

I really like this one

”The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.”

With a click and a twist the trike will go from the parent controlled trike that you love

To an independent trike that children will

Sounds amazing!

”It’s time for a new adventure”

All of these trikes have something awesome to offer

As a mummy of 5 children

I know my criteria now

When searching for a first scooter for a first birthday







A true reclining seat and space to stash stuff tops my criteria

What would top yours?
