When our children get to an age where they want to be mobile, we start the hunt for something that will help them to learn coordination, balance and can be hours worth of fun. Although a preschooler may have the desire to ride a bike, he may not be developmentally ready for such a ride-on toy.
So what do you look for when searching for tricycles for kids? You want an affordable price for something that is durable and easy enough to handle. Some of the best choices for your child today are big wheels for kids. These toys have a three-wheel support system so the dangers of falling off and hurting themselves while they learn balance is not a prime concern.
Often times children have a hard time understanding the concept of pedaling a tricycle or two-wheeler with training wheels until they are much older. With a big wheel ride-on toy, children can learn to pedal from a seating position until they become more adept at the way things work. With the low riding seat and big thick wheels, your child can ride fast without fear of falling over and hurting themselves.
Big Wheels were first introduced to the public in the 1960s and have been turning out new models for more added fun every year. With a lineup for your little guy and models designed with your little princess in mind, these rides have become a household name for many happy families. They are the number one choice for parents who want to make sure their children have a ton of fun while improving their fine motor skills.
Some options available with this great ride-on toys for kids are electric powered or manually powered steering, a safety stop, adjustable handle bars, strong durable materials both in body and wheels, multiple positions for seating, and performance grip front treads for extra traction. They also come with decals that are resistant to weather and are manufactured with high visibility colors to help keep your child safe when riding in a high traffic area.
These riding toys are great for younger kids ages 3-7 who love to move fast and enjoy being able to maneuver easily with pedals straight out in front of them. There are many makes and models such as the Radio Flyer Big Wheel, Big Rollin’ Rascal Resin Figure Tricycle Terror Wheels, Tricycle Ride-on Wilde Kerle, Spiderman Power Wheels, and the old school Original Kids Big Wheel.
Big Wheels for kids are excellent for sparking your child’s imagination as they can smoothly ride around the block, race around the park with other friends, and can even drive around indoors on rainy days.
