The summer is here, and like my older kids, Wyatt wants to be outdoors, riding bikes like the big kids. To help with that ambition Wyatt has, we were sent a very cool kids tricycle from Kettler USA to review.
We were given the Kettrike Happy Navigator for review. As a parent, one of the first things for me is the assembly, and we found the assembly process to be very easy. Once it was put together, Wyatt could not wait to take it on a maiden voyage! In the past, prior to getting his own bike to now ride, Wyatt had followed his older siblings in a stroller that was being pushed by either myself or my husband. Or as the kids rode around with their friends, Wyatt would watch from a far, dreaming of the day he could follow behind them.
One of the features that I like is the removable parent bar, which when in use, allows mom and dad to steer the bike, along with the Parental Control Steering Lock. This locking system allows parents to lock the front wheel in a straight position, which is great for when we go on long walks as a family and Wyatt wants to ride along on his bike instead of a stroller. The 3-in-1 Auto-Freewheel, which is there for pedaling and coasting is great for when we push the trike, so Wyatt can rest his feet on the pedals and avoid dragging his feet on the ground.
I also like the seat belt restraint system, so I can buckle Wyatt in, and make sure he does not accidentally fall off of his trike. The seat also offers support and comfort, so little ones do not slide off the back while they are riding along. Other features for those big kids who are ready for the big kid trike is the 5 position Quick-Adjust, which allows parents to adjust through the S Frame, and the 4 point adjustable seat, so we can adjust the trike as Wyatt grows!
For the times when Wyatt is riding like a big boy, without mom or dad helping him along, Wyatt can push the pedals with his feet, and even bring along a snack or some toys and store them in the rear tipping bucket. Wyatt finds the bucket feature to be a favorite, so he can help transport toys and snacks for himself and his older siblings, giving him a mission when we are outdoors playing and riding bikes!
With the safety features, you also get the limited turn radius steering device along with the low center of gravity, which helps to prevent tipping. Then with the tires, Wyatt can enjoy a smooth ride with the MaxXTread wheels! With the wear and tear aspect that parents always worry about with outdoor toys, I like the carbon steel frame, which provides a sturdy frame and the fade resistant powder coat, so even when we leave Wyatt’s trike out in the hot Texas sun, he can continue to ride his bike that remains looking new! Making the Kettrike Happy Navigator, a great trike to have for the toddler in your life! Well to help with finding those outdoor play items for the kids this summer, the wonderful people from Kettler USA would like to give one of my amazing readers their own Kettrike Happy Navigator!!!!!
