Active play time is so important for kids. Between television, video, games, and school time, active play time is important to keep kids active, healthy, and creative. That’s why I was super excited to review the Little Tikes 4-in-1 Trike for Miss B. She’s just coming into that age where active play is more and more important.
I recently got Miss B. a Little Tikes 4-in-1 Trike to promote her love for outdoor activity and active play. She’s a little young to hit the streets (or driveway) on her own, but the great thing about this trike is that it will grow with her. There are 4 stages starting at 9+ month. She is 1 year old, so we have plenty of time get get lots of fun active play in. Stage 1 (9+ months) Parents push and control the trike and with the blue waist bar installed, the child will be unable to turn the wheel. Stage 2 (12+ months) Toddlers now learn how to pedal the trike. Stage 3 (18+ months) Remove the waist bar and your child can now steer while you still have control with the push bar. Stage 4 (36+ months) Remove the push bar to let your child go on their own, with parent supervision of course. Plus the Trike has 5-point seat belt harness and protective safety bar for added safety and the shade canopy will be
This 4 stage trike allows me to systematically make the trike more and more of a Miss B. powered trike by removing certain parts of it as she grows. At each stage, the tricycle become more and more “kid powered”, so by the time Miss B. is old enough to hit the open driveway or walking trails, this trike will still be going strong and ready to ride.

Make Outdoor Play Time the Best Time with Little Tikes
I already knew that Little Tikes was a great company for outdoor play, but I was completely sold after setting up Miss B.’s 4-in-1 Trike. I’m doing all the pushing right now, but she’s still having a ton of fun, and I know I’ll have to keep a close eye on her when she’s old enough to ride it on her own. Little Tikes really has made outdoor play time the best time for Miss B. and we both love it!
