Princess Stylista turned one recently. We were debating what to get her. She’s quite happy playing with her brother’s old toys, remotes, mobiles..but we wanted something to mark the occasion. Something special.
One is a right of passage, it needs to be celebrated. She’d just started walking, she was asserting herself, getting a bit of independence. Nothing says independent like your first bike!
Enter the Smartrike Explorer – it’s 5 trikes in one!
Just look at that smile! I think we made the right choice don’t you? Princess gets bored of the stroller after awhile but with the Smartrike she feels like she’s in control. It keeps her entertained and engaged for longer periods so shopping trips are fun!
It features a stylish design, a washable seat cover, rear storage bag, extended UV canopy, toy phone, bottle holder and basket for toys. It’s durable and light-weight too so it’s easy to put in the car.
The ‘click-in’ technology enables easy assembly in under 10 minutes, but if you’re like me and you struggle with putting things together there is a video on You Tube to help. I speak from experience!
The best thing about it is she can use it until she is 36 months old! At $219.99 it’s a great investment. It completely transitions in stages as she grows.
Stage 1: Sleeping Mode
At 10 months baby is strapped in with padded high-back support and the seat reclines for a nap on the go.
Stage 2: Stroller Mode
At 18+ months baby can be more active by pedalling and steering, while parents still control direction and movement.
Stage 3: Stroller Mode
At 18 months baby can begin to master the art of pedalling. Children can pedal at their own pace without impacting the overall movement of the trike.
Stage 4: Trike Mode
At 24 months it becomes a training trike – kids learn to pedal and steer, developing confidence and control.
Stage 5: Child Control
In the final stage, the parents steering handle can be removed and the clutch pushed in with the click of a button to from a freestanding independent trike.
So if you are looking for the perfect gift for your little one this Xmas look no further! The SmarTrike Explorer 5 is much more fun than your average stroller making life easier for you.
It develops confidence and independence, improves co-ordination and will take you from baby to preschool easily. It even comes with a 3 year warranty. What’s not to love?
But most importantly it’s safe and comfortable for your little one. All SmarTrike products comply with Australian safety standards so you can rest assured bub is in good hands!
