Knowing this tricycle may last until they’re ready for a two-wheel bike could ease the hesitation a ninety-dollar price tag could hold.

Their consistency and satisfaction have been tried and tested over the span of three centuries- your toddler is guaranteed to enjoy their new tricycle and you’re going to love knowing they’re on the safest tricycle on the market.
It is because of the quality and longevity it ranks second overall, only coming in second due to a thirty-dollar price difference.

This tricycle also has a rear foot plate attached to the back of the toy, allowing for an additional rider to join in on the driver’s fun!
Bordering in the middle of our first two tricycles, the price tag for this ride falls around seventy dollars.

Their claims about the bikes longevity appear to have good merit as the seatbelt and plastic seat allow for numerous adjustments as your child develops.
Through this your child can begin their tricycle experience earlier than ever as its comes with a handy push handle and canopy.
The prior allowing you to control the bike and propel it even if their legs aren’t long enough. The canopy helps protect your toddlers’ sensitive skin from the suns harmful rays while they’re out and about learning to ride a bike.

Our Fifth Choice- The Fisher Price Tough Trike– Low Cost for A Hardy Product
Our fifth and final tricycle comes from the well-known children’s toy manufacturer Fisher Price.
This bright trike can take several hits- and come away without a scratch; which is more than a great deal of tricycles that we tested can boast.
Entirely plastic, this is a typical run of the mill basic toy you are able to pick up at any store or online.
Unlike our top picks this tricycle is created by a company that specializes in children’s toys and not in cycling.
However, this may play to its durability and benefit your wallet as it is able to continue working well even after a few “young driver” accidents.
It can hold its own against any sidewalk, blacktop, grass, or trail that your toddler can traipse into which is more than the fourth choice- the multifunctional tricycle- can achieve.
For a great price tag of forty dollars, this tricycle is the lowest end of our price range.
The durability and ability to satisfy several ages means that this tricycle can last you and your toddler well into the next few years.
The only reason this particular cycle is ranked at number five is due to the other tricycles being made with better materials that could last a greater amount of time than this tricycle.
- Lowest price tag
- Bright- multicolored
- All plastic
- Manufactured by a Toy company, not a bike company
