13 best tricycles for kids

Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

The child grows up, is active, and there comes a time when he is not very comfortable in a stroller, but it is too early to transfer him to a regular bicycle. And then the parents begin to think about what is more convenient to carry it, so that it is both interesting and safe. The most popular vehicle today for children from 1 year old is a tricycle with a handle for adults. It will help from an early age to learn how to maneuver, keep balance, concentrate, strengthen muscles, and improve the work of the cardiovascular system.

How to choose the right tricycle with a handle

Of course, the health of the baby will depend on a well-made purchase. But how do you make the right choice? This is especially worrisome for parents who have their first child and have not had to deal with such an acquisition. We will answer this question by presenting several main criteria, which, first of all, should be paid attention to.

  1. Materials. A plastic frame will reduce weight, but it is not durable. For reliability, it is better to opt for steel or aluminum. Rubber wheels provide better shock absorption and make it easier to drive on uneven roads, but they can be punctured. Plastic is used in budget models. Wheels are noisy, they are sensitive to small holes, so it is better to ride these bicycles on flat paths in the city.
  2. Seat. Its design determines how long the child can enjoy the ride and not get tired during it. High backs are provided mainly in models for children under 3 years old. When reclining back, the baby can rest and sleep. For older children, the seats are made according to the anatomical structure of the body, but without an elongated back.
  3. A handle for parents. It helps control the tricycle while driving, and the comfort of both adults and children depends on its shape. The telescopic handle will help you quickly adjust the height. Double is more convenient than single, but the second allows better maneuvering.
  4. Belts and safety rim. Designed for maximum safety, they protect the child during falls and prevent abrasions and bruises. Such details are included in models for children over 3 years old.
  5. Pedals and footrests. Many models are equipped with removable footrests for children up to 1.5 years old and folding – for older ones. Pedals should not be massive or, on the contrary, very small. The grooved surface will provide stability and prevent the feet from slipping.
  6. Protective hood. It will protect the child from rain, wind, sun. The best material for sewing awnings is textiles with a water-repellent impregnation. It is less dirty and can be cleaned by simply wiping off the raindrops with a dry cloth. For monitoring the child, it is better to choose a model with a window.
  7. Additional accessories. Many tricycles have interesting handlebar music panels, horns or bells, toy baskets, small bags for small things. All these accessories make the life of mothers much easier and delight the child during a walk. But it is worth remembering that the more additional parts, the more expensive the bike is.
  8. Weight. Lightweight models made of aluminum or plastic are more convenient to carry and store, while heavy ones are more resistant to toppling, but less maneuverable. Today you can buy bicycles weighing 6-7 kg, but with a special shape of the base, which gives them maximum stability.

Manufacturers never cease to delight with an expanded range of tricycles for children. Parents can choose a model suitable for 1 year old as well as older ones. Experts, based on customer reviews, have compiled a rating of the best vehicles that are distinguished by reliable components, high wear resistance and absolute ease of use.
