The "Schwinn 8 Easy Steer Beginner Tricycle" Is Great....

...for the one riding it.  For the one pushing, it might as well be a stroller- and a stroller with no cup holders or place to put your diaper bag.  A stroller I can only use when somebody else is pushing O's stroller.  But maybe I'm just spoiled by our double stroller.

The Schwinn Easy Steer Tricycle

JD has totally not even attempted to move this thing on his own (he keeps his feet firmly on the little pegs)- except for when he pushes it around the yard, giving his rocks a ride.  I'm not sure if it will be effective at teaching him how bikes really work, but I'm taking the opportunity to enforce safety rules.  It is really easy to steer using the handle- even with one hand.  And it has a 3-point harness, so JD hasn't been able to jump off while it is moving.

As far as the rock collecting capabilities, it does come with a basket up front, dump bucket in the back, and a tiny backpack that attaches to the seat.  That is heaven for my toddler/pebble hoarder.  
When should I expect to be able to remove the handle and send the kid on his way (with O and I trailing close behind of course)?


  1. oh man, this looks like so much fun!! can't wait til we can get p into something like this :)

  2. That looks like fun, but everything I've read says they're way hard to steer :( I think J would love something like that!!

  3. @Joanna I was actually really surprised at how smoothly it steered & how well it cornered, but that is coming from someone who pushes a double stroller most of the time :P
