3-in-1 Deluxe Smart Trike Review & Giveaway

I have been very lucky and given a 3-in-1 Smart Trike in Pink to review. Seeing as I am super nice (and we already have one) I am giving one lucky reader the chance to win this gorgeous Smart Trike worth £75. Details are below this review.

I was so happy about being given this, not just because it is a lovely trike, but because it is from The Early Learning Centre. Growing up my mum used to buy us a lot from ELC and I have such fond memories of going into our old local branch. So this has been very nostalgic for me!

Onto the Smart Trike:


Construction: 

The hubby actually assembled the Trike but I watched and I could have easily done it!  Easy to follow clear instructions. You will not have a problem at all!


Features: 

The best thing about this Trike is that it can be adapted to the age and ability of the child. BB has only just turned 1 and so we kept the seat belts, seat reinforcement/back support and safety bar on for her. The handle at the back moves up and down so you can adjust it to your height so it is comfy to push and the handle also steers the bike.

The trike also has a foldable foot rest and this was great because she is too young to pedal. As your child gets older you can remove all these things, including the steering handle and they can use it like a normal trike.

Finally the trike comes with a detachable adjustable UV canopy, bag and tipping bucket at the back. The bag and bucket are very handy for when we go out for walks as I can keep a few things in them.

My only negative thing about this Trike would be the sun canopy, it is quite flimsy and when there is a slight bit of wind it doesn't come in much use really. But it is detachable and so doesn't affect the trike as a great buy.

Testing:

Once assembled we took the Smart Trike down to the local park. BB loved it from word go, I thought she might be a bit scared but she was so happy in it and secure too. It handles very well. You really need to take it outside to see how it manouveres because when I was whizzing her around the lounge in it I thought it was going to be a bit of a pain.

That afternoon my brother was having a BBQ at his house so we also took it there to test it out on the grass. Again it handled like a dream and BB never wanted to get out (As you can see in the pics below).

Conclusion:

An amazing buy which will grow with your child and last them a good few years. Perfect for spring/summer walks and days out, could even be used as a pushchair alternative on nice days. It is not cheap at £75 but your child will get so much use out of it for years to come, it is a great investment.
