My Experience

My toddler loves the Radio Flyer Deluxe Steer & Stroll Trike! Although he is a bit young for it at 16 months, he has no problem getting on and off the tricycle. He doesn't yet understand how to pedal it, but he loves to be pushed around by his mom and dad. When he is being pushed, the pedals act well as foot rests. They do not rotate while his feet are on them, so they are not a danger to his feet or legs. However, the pedals do sometimes make a clicking sound when they are held in place while the front wheel turns.

The steering handle is easy to use and works well to turn and push the tricycle. Just try to be a little gentle with it as it can become a bit wrenched to one side or the other. For me, the handle has become a bit tilted but still works great. Our toddler also loves to use the handle to push the empty tricycle. He hasn't really figured out steering, but he still pushes the tricycle back and forth.

The tricycle is light weight and can easily be carried if needed. However, this is not generally necessary except with stairs since the tricycle has no problem handling bumpy or rough terrain such as high grass, gravel, or hills in addition to pavement. Just be a little careful when pushing the tricycle sideways on a steep hill as it feels like the tricycle could potentially tip over. I have yet to have that happen, but I still think it is a good idea to watch out just in case.

The storage compartment has come in handy for carrying child supplies when we take our toddler to the park. He also likes to put sandbox toys and chalk in the bin, or if he is playing with water, he will fill it up with that as well.

The tricycle comes with a bell that your child can play with. If it gets too annoying, you can always remove it. It can also be replaced with other bicycle accessories. We replaced our bell with a horn that our child loves to squeeze. You can see he is squeezing it in the picture at the beginning of this section.

Although the maximum stated weight is 49 pounds, both my wife and I have tried riding on it as well. It's a bit of a squeeze, but the tricycle had no problem supporting our weight. We were trying to show our toddler how to pedal, but he's still a little too young for it. Instead, he likes pretending to push us on the tricycle while we pedal or push ourselves using our feet.

Overall, it has been a lot of fun for everyone.

My Recommendation

I would highly recommend the Radio Flyer Deluxe Steer & Stroll Trike for toddlers and young kids ages 15 months to 5 years! It is my toddler's favorite outside toy. He loves to push it, to be pushed in it, and to play with the storage bin. It is easy to push and steer for adults as well as kids, and it holds up great even with heavy usage.
