If you’re thinking about buying your child a tricycle but aren’t sure if they’re ready for one yet, then you may want to take a look at the Radio Flyer Big Wheel. The biggest advantage to getting a Big Wheels is the fact that they have a low center of gravity and sit much lower to the ground than tricycles do. This gives most parents a more comfortable feeling as far as safety goes. It’s much less of a fall from a big wheel than it is from a tricycle.
I grew up when the Original Kids Big Wheel was at the height of its popularity. This was “the” toy to have if you wanted to be cool and have the best ride that was out there. We used to have competitions to see who could gain the most speed and spin the best.
Rides like the Radio Flyer Big Wheel are a wonderful toy that will encourage your kids to get some physical exercise. All of the pedaling involved to get around town will work the large muscle groups, stimulating gross motor skills.
Your kids will love the feeling of independence that comes with having their very own ride that mom and dad don’t have to push or pull. They can ride this one all on their own for hours of fun.
- The Radio Flyer Big Wheel has a lot of style with its chopper style handlebars that are made from real chrome. The handgrips are molded for better grip protection.
- The big 16″ front wheel has a performance grip tread and the rear tires are extra wide for more stability and safety. The cool racing pennant makes sure that your kids will be very visible to everyone around them.
- I love that the seat has three adjustable settings. This is a feature that I always look for because my granddaughter has what we call the “short leg syndrome” and this is a feature that is a must have when I buy for her.
- You’ll find that this ride will be safer for your child on any hills. When traveling downhill on a tricycle many children tend to gain speed, panic, and tip over the bikes. This is one way that you’ll see the benefits of a ride that sits low to the ground like this one.
The Radio Flyer Big Wheel is a great way for your kids to learn all about the laws of physics as they’re gaining speed, building momentum, and spinning their way around the turns. What a fun way to get those little imaginations working full speed.
