I fondly remember my Radio Flyer Tricycle (and little red wagon) from childhood, so when I started looking into a trike for my daughter I had to have a Radio Flyer. Of course, back in the ’80s all Radio Flyers were red, today little girls (like mine) are thrilled to have a pink option too. Oh, and today’s Radio Flyer isn’t just a ride on toy, it plays music too! If zooming around for some outdoor fun is on your kiddo’s wish list this holiday season, you have to check out the Radio Flyer Lights and Sounds Racer (in red or pink).
From Radio Flyer:
The Lights and Sounds Racer has:
- Traction Tread™ on front wheel to hug the road so your child can take off without slipping or spinning out
- 7 buttons that play unique songs and sounds and includes a working turn signal
- Adjustable grow-with-me-seat
- Durable molded frame
- Molded handgrips
Why I Love It – Until recently, I thought my daughter just didn’t have the coordination to pedal. We have another small trike that she tries to ride without much success. But after watching neighborhood kids who know how to ride try to ride her trike, I realized it was the trike not her. With the Radio Flyer Lights and Sounds Racer she still won’t win any records for speed (my cautious little rider), but she doesn’t have the same pedaling issues as with her trike. And I am sure the neighborhood kids will have no problem zooming around the driveway. Because the seat is adjustable, I am able to make sure the pedals are in the exact right position for her, which makes riding much easier. Riding is only half of the fun with this racer; I believe the lights and sounds maybe the bigger hit with K.
Great Gift For – Tons of outdoor (energy burning) fun for kids ages 2 – 5.
