Smart Trike Plus. This neat toy, which retails for only $79.99, is three great products in one. First, its an infant tricycle that you can easily steer for your baby when they are about 10 months old. When they're ready to get more adventurous, they can start pushing themselves around with their feet. And finally, it turns to an independent tricycle that they can ride. I know with my other two children, I had to buy three individual items to meet these needs. I probably spent at least $200 or more on all of them combined. But with the Smart Trike Plus, you only have to buy one item for one reasonable price. This will save you both space and money.
My husband was the lucky one who got to put the Smart Trike Plus together. It was a chore he wasn't very happy about at first, especially since he just put together a whole slew of baby furniture, swings, playpens, etc. But when he was done with the Smart Trike Plus, he was visibly relieved. It said of all the things he's had to put together since he became a father-to-be/step-father, this one was the easiest. Just one more reason why the Smart Trike Plus is a great idea for your little one.
I received this beautiful sample in pink. Since my baby isn't here yet and won't be able to try it out for awhile anyway, I asked my friend to bring over her little girl. She's about 14 months old now so she's the perfect product tester. The Smart Trike Plus was set for the first stage. We put her in and pushed her around the house. She loved it so much that her mother had a hard time getting her out to take her home. The handle works as a steer and moves very easily around corners. Its high up enough that you won't have to stoop over and hurt your back if you take if out for a walk. And it was sturdy enough to stand up to my older daughter running around the house with her dolls in it.
If you have a baby or toddler, you probably want to know where you can find the Smart Trike Plus. They will be available at Babies R Us and Toys R Us starting this February. But one lucky reader will get the chance to try out the Smart Trike Plus ahead of the masses.
