“ Brand: Universal / Equipment Type: Toy Ride-ons „
Since my little monkey was born which was at the beginning of the Summer 2008, I had seen parents pushing around their children on real cool little trikes. So naturally I decided that I wanted one however I wasn't quite sure if it was for me or for Scarlet. Being fussy though I never seemed to like the look of the plastic ones you can purchase from Argos or Toys r Us.
To me they just never seemed to look sturdy enough and it worried me that when I was pushing her around the parent handle would break. When I got the oppurtunity to try one out I naturally jumped at the chance. Excactly as I thought..... the handle was not sturdy enough for me. I would not be put off by this and of course had set myself the challenge to find a better one and started searching for a metal one.
This however proved to be a hard task. That was until I came across Amazon. I have always loved Amazon and purchase all my books, Dvd's, XBOX live subscription and Microsoft points from the site so I thought I would give it a go. As you can imagine I was jumping for joy when Amazon had the exact one I was looking for and had not failed me. It was the Milan Trike with Harness.
Scarlet is my first (and last to add) little monkey and I am a very over protective parent and ensure that I check every factor with something I purchase for her to ensure she is very safe. Reading the benefits from the product satisfied me as it boasted a 3 point saftey harness, a sun canopy, solid wheels, a tube steel frame and the all needed parent handle. As extra benefits it has a little cute bag which is now used as her nappy bag as I fell in love with it, the handle can be removed to put the trike in the car and once she can cycle herself around, a day I am reading the parent handle can be removed and the trike lasts until she is four.
As the item was priced at £44.99 this seemed a bit pricey but I was completely satisfied that I had found 'the one'. But as the benefits were so fantastic and the plastic ones being about £30.00 more expensive
I knew she would have good use of it. Delivery was very quick once the order had been made and assembly was fairly easy with the item as all the tools were included. I made sure that Scarlet was having a nap when I assembled the item so it would be ready for when she woke.
Seeing her face when she saw it for the first time made me cry. She couldn't contain her excitement and of course had to be pushed around the lounge until the rain stopped long enough for us to take her outside on it. Needless to day this item is taken everywhere with us and she prefers this to being put in a pushchair.
I made a mistake buying a pushchair as this now never gets used as she goes staright for her trike whenever we are getting ready to go out, bless her she even sits in to watch tv.
This is definatly the best purchase I have made for my beautiful daughter and would recommend this to any parent. And being as safety concious as I am the harness gave me added peice of mind.
Check out this pretty pink trike with everything you need to take your toddler to the shops, park or wherever you desire. Fitted with great features like parent handle, harness and canopy.
