Get Moving! Top Tricycles for Your Little Mover and Shaker


Tricycles make a great foundation for teaching kids the fundamentals of pedaling and steering. Along with developing gross motor skills, kids learn independence through trial and error as they test and push the boundaries of their skills. As they discover that moving their feet certain ways results in forward and reverse motions, they also begin to gain control over their movement and balance. Their athletic ability will grow with practice and persistence, all while they enjoy the pleasures of outdoor play.

Tricycles come in a variety of shapes and sizes. It's tough to know which one will best suit your child. From grow-with-me trikes, to four wheeler converts to retro classics, we have compiled a list of tricycles in order to help you make an informed purchase.

If you are looking for a one-stop-shop tricycle, you've struck gold. This 4-way trike grows with your child, from 9-months all the way up to five years of age. It easily converts from infant trike to steering trike, learn-to-ride, and finally classic trike. For the early stages, the pedals become footrests while push handles allow an adult to steer. A secure three point harness and high back allow for safe riding or driving. Equipped with a stroller-style sun shade that shields from sunrays, a removable tray with cup holder, and covered storage bin, this tricycle is ready to roll.

Your boy or girl will love this exciting 3-in-1 tricycle. This versatile trike goes from a four wheeler mini quad, to trike for a toddler, all the way to your child's first 2-wheeled bicycle. A chain guard that is completely enclosed and puncture proof tires make for safe riding. Parents will love the unique quick wheel change that takes the bike from four, to three, down to two wheels.

This classic trike makes a stylish statement. The sturdy all-steel construction, solid rubber tires, durable steel spokes and comfortable leatherette paddle saddle seat are set for the long haul. The adjustable handlebars grow with your child. For an added cool factor, this tricycle boasts a real, battery operated LED headlight. Make this bike truly special for the little one in your life and personalize it with their name, nickname or initials.

Your little princess will be the bell of the ball in this classic retro tricycle. She'll be riding in style with chrome accents straight out of the 1930s. Toy safety approved, this tricycle features solid rubber tires, working light, reflectors for added safety and is constructed of the highest quality steel.
