Ok, i know these new kiddy trikes with the handle off the back for the parents to hold onto may stop your child from riding out on the road and being hit by a car.......

But my partner and I think they are stupid.... because how the hell is the child meant to learn how to steer and co-ordinate if they have the parent correcting them everytime they veer off course...

Ive also seen parents become impatient, because naturally the child will want to free ride and turn corners... so they tilt the trike back so the front wheeel is off the ground and they are just pushing the child along themselves!!!! Oh my god let the child be a child and take a normal trike somewhere safe where the child is free to ride whatever way he/she likes!!

I feel like for a young child still developing motor skills...under 15 months, its a great idea. After that I feel like the child needs to be free to explore. If you feel your child is going to go out into the street...you probably shouldnt be playing with them in that area to begin with.
