Buyer’s Guide – How to Choose a Best Tricycle in India?

When choosing the right tricycle for you and your child, be sure to think about the following:

  1. Assembly – consider opting for a trike that requires little to no assembly so your child can get riding straight away.
  2. Frame – the heavier the frame, the harder the trike will be for your child to lift and, of course, for you to carry. Lightweight is key!
  3. Tyres – a grippy set of wheels and puncture-proof tyres are best suited to rough terrain, so if you plan to use the trike on the grass in your local park, then opt for a trike with large wheels.
  4. Size – find a trike perfectly suited to your child’s age and development.
  5. Seat – an adjustable and comfy seat will mean that the trike grows with your child.
  6. Usage – consider a folding tricycle if you don’t have much storage space or need to transport it regularly. A trike with a parent push handle will allow you to control the trike if you need to. A wooden trike is the best type of trike to use indoors or on a smooth surface. 
  7. Material – look for a trike made of sturdy materials (metal may be more serviceable for you than plastic).
  8. Safety – keep an eye out for additional safety features, including a safety harness, sun hood and steering lock, and make sure that your chosen trike meets European safety standards.

Balance bikes vs. tricycles – Which one you need?

Many Mumsnet users say they favour balance bikes over tricycles, citing the transition to pedalling as being much easier (and often shorter) thanks to the absence of training wheels right from the get-go.

However, while balance bikes teach kids how to balance, trikes help them to master pedaling without ever having to worry about balance, and are a great option for use indoors as well as out.

Why Your Kid Needs a Tricycle?

  • It helps in developing the child’s physical and mental well-being from the initial stage itself. 
  • The child can easily learn various kinds of motion activities by just riding a bicycle (as he/she will be indulged in balancing through paddling). There have been instances where kids were easily able to comb and bath by themselves after riding on a tricycle. 
  • A child’s antigravity muscles can be strengthened with the use of a tricycle as he/she will paddle or push. 
  • Kids tend to not sleep and play around but they will sleep soon after getting tired (as they will be busy riding tricycle). Also, they will be indulged in physical activity which is highly responsible for providing good bowel movement.
  • A child who rides on a bicycle or tricycle has higher blood circulation because of the muscles’ contraction.
  • The kids will develop their cognitive because they will be exposed to the environment (especially, they will be seeing it by themselves).
  • Last but not least, it will be an overall fun and healthy activity for them to ride on a tricycle.

Common Questions about Tricycles

1. Is it safe to use tricycles for toddlers?

Some say that tricycles shouldn’t be introduced to toddlers until they are at least 3 years of age due to the risk of them falling or their feet getting caught up in the pedals. Whether the toddler is three or younger, there are a few things you can do to help prevent injuries:
Tricycle type: Not all tricycles are made the same. Look for a sturdy tricycle that will reduce the chances of it toppling over.
Seat options: Some tricycles have sidebars to prevent toddlers from sliding or falling off the seat when riding.
Pedals or no pedals: Tricycles with removable pedals (or no pedals) can be a safe starter tricycle for toddlers because they can learn the basics without having to figure out how to use quick-spinning pedals.
Helmets: A good-fitting helmet helps make any ride safer!

How is a bicycle different from a tricycle? 

A bicycle has two wheels whereas a tricycle always has three or more than 3 wheels. Mostly, you will find a tricycle with three wheels otherwise, it will be considered as a balance bike.
