What our experts think
These animal-themed trikes are a visually appealing way to get little ones moving and developing their balance and coordination. We did find that a lot of the children needed help at first with getting on to the trike. However, once on they quickly realised they needed to use their feet to push themselves along.
This is great for building stability and strengthening the big muscles in their legs – as young children learn to hold themselves up and ride along, they develop their balance and spatial awareness which are essential skills. There was some additional support needed with the steering but little ones enjoyed moving backwards and forwards at first, before progressing to this next step.
