12 questions answered about trikes

  • 3 min read

If you are wondering whether buying a trike is something that you should be investing in, here is your ultimate guide to the question “are trikes worth it?”

 Generally, riding a trike is an excellent way for your child to enhance their balance and coordination. It aids in the development of your toddler's motor abilities and improves coordination between diverse muscle groups. Choosing the right trike for them can help them to enjoy the freedom and gain more independence. 


Are trikes good for toddlers?

like children, trikes come in all shapes and sizes and what fits one may not fit another. So you'll want to choose one that's suitable for your child's age while also thinking about safety and development.

 What is a Micro Trike?

The Micro Trike is a push-along but isn’t the same as the push-along tricycles you see with pedals. This trike is designed to be used by babies from 18 months on who are making the transition out of the buggy and towards walking. It helps when their little legs slow you down on the school run or when babies can’t manage the whole distance to the shops.

 What age is the Micro Trike suitable for?

Suitable from 18 months. The Micro Trike is the first stage for your child to experience independence, ready to ditch the pushchair but not quite strong enough to be able to ride a bike, or scooter or go on foot for long distances.

 How do I know if my child is ready for a Trike?

A good indication is if they are learning, or have already learnt, how to walk and can sit confidently unaided. The slick design fosters independence as a child is able to get onto and off a Trike easily by themselves, giving them ultimate control over their own adventures.

 What makes the Micro Trike unique?

Our Micro Trike gives parents and toddlers the best of both worlds. A first taste of buggy-free independence for mini explorers with the added reassurance of a comfy seat and slick steering handle for parents worrying about the ‘I’m tired’ moment. 

 How much do they weigh?

At only 2.7kg, with a slimline frame and compact fold, the Trike is as portable as they come. It is light enough to be folded down, thrown over your shoulder and carried. 

 How easy is the Micro Trike to use?

It’s really easy to use. The telescopic pushing handle can be adjusted to your desired height and the footrest can be adjusted for your child. 

Does it fold?

It’s easy to fold and stores flat so can easily be tucked under a sofa or just hung on a peg. At the end of every adventure, the Trike folds flat – for popping in the boot, hanging in the hall, or sliding into a cupboard.
