The Schwinn Roadster Tricycle is a huge hit with many parents and children and the number one reason seems to be that it is a sturdy bike with a low center of gravity which means it doesn’t tip over as easily, keeping your child on the bike instead of off it.
Of course, its very pretty looking bike too and for girls, the pink color and chrome handlebars with their long tassels and bell make this a definite must-have bike to be seen out and about in neighborhood – even at the tender age of 5! You can also get this bike in red and blue also.
The manufacturer’s recommended age for this trike is
from about 18 months to 5 years.
Though many parents seem to think that you should wait until your child is 3 years old before you get this bike, since it is quite solid and sturdy and can be difficult to steer for younger children.
In any case, this is a well-loved and hugely popular bike that has:
- a wide design for an extra-low center of gravity
- a sculpted adjustable seat for growing riders
- padded grips on the handlebar
- a full-steel, heavy duty frame
- scalloped chrome fenders for flare
- real wood back deck for an extra passenger
- a 12 inch front wheel
- 8 inch back wheels
Best-known for producing high-quality and innovative products, Schwinn has been around since 1895 and has created some of the best loved bikes of previous generations including the: Paramount, Phantom, Varsity, Sting-Ray, Krate, Aerocycle and Homegrown.
Depending on the age of your child you may want to look at pre-school scooters or something like the Strider Pre-bike which is great for toddlers just learning to get a sense of balance as they start learning to ride a bike.
Mini Kick scooters are also a brilliant way for little ones to get around.
