g with G on her first tricycle


I love this picture. We bought her a radio flyer tricycle. Of course, we also bought her a helmet. She looked adorable. I didn't think it was possible but I think her head looks even bigger. G took her out for the first time. She didn't mind the helmet and was interested in the tricycle. We bought this trike because of the pushbar, a feature that allowed the adult to push the kid along when the concept of peddling. I also loved the fact that it was foldable making it easy to transport in our little civic.

Well, she was a hit being the cutie in the helmet. But it is most definitely a thumbs-down for the trike. The pushbar was so unwieldy. It took all of G's strength to steer and make a turn. I had also thought that you could lock the pedals so that when g is not peddling, the pedals wouldn't move. It didn't do that. So really it was a basic trike with not that many features at a more expensive price. We decided to return the trike.

I think I am going to hold out for a Kettler. Much more money though. If we do get it, you'll see it here. Posted by Picasa



Oh! I was just bored studying and took a gander at your blog just expecting to laugh at g's insect hunter picture to again. What a nice surprise! Some action videos would be most coolios too!

We're thinking of getting our little one a trike. Any recommendations?
