SmarTrike 5-in-1 Recliner Infinity Review


Freddie is 10 months old now and he's at the stage where he's constantly being nosy. Whether he is in the pram or in the smarTrike. We go out for a walk down our local cycle track, that's only two minutes away from our home most evenings before bedtime. I find the fresh air helps the Freddie and girls get a little more tired, or I'm hoping it does a little at least. We were sent the smarTrike 5-in-1 recliner infinity to review and a part of their #smartDiscoveries project. Seeing as we go for a walk at least once a day and more than once over the weekend, I said yes and Freddie's enjoyed many adventures with the smarTrike since we have received it. It was pretty easy to put together, the instructions were easy to read and I managed to put it together on my own in less than half an hour. I forgot to put the timer on for an exact time. 

The smarTrike goes really smooth just like your pushing a stroller. The trike has five stages and they are;

Stage one; 
For the first few stages your child can sit in the adjustable, tilting recliner seat. Perfect for short naps if baby feels tired after all the nosing around. There's full parent control with the detachable parent steering handle. 

Stage two;
Still with parent control, your baby can be seated in the high-backed seat. 

Stage three;
At around 18 months + you can remove the canopy and safety bar. Parents are still in control of the trike but baby can still explore around and develop confidence, balance and motor skills before the next stage.

Stage four; 
At 24 months, this is the training part. You fold in the footrest and your child learns to pedal. 

Stage five;
The last stage is the classic trike at 30 months. By removing the parent handle you child can start riding their trike independently.




Freddie has loved his little adventures in his smarTrike. He babbles to himself, constantly looks around and looks super comfortable in the padded recliner seat. He's at the age where he loves to sit upright and so the seat only gets reclined if he's a little tired or gone for a nap. As we take most of our walks on the cycle track he's amazed by the cyclists that ride past us and the most hilarious thing that he does one our walks is laughing hysterically at dogs who bark when they walk past us. For some strange reasons he just loves it when dogs bark. Funny enough, our middle, Elliw, is absolutely petrified of dogs. The girls have also loved pushing Freddie in his smarTrike. It's so easy push with the parent control handle. 

The smarTrike is suitable from 10 months to 3 years. It's available in various colours, we chose the stunning navy blue. There are two storage bags, one small one at the top that is perfect for storing your phone and keys. The second is an optional bag to clip on over the plastic back basket behind the seat of the trike. As well as storage space to keep your little one's drink infront of the trike handles. The canopy is perfect for keeping the sun off your little one's head when they are younger. 

Here's a few photos of some of our little adventures with the smarTrike;

  1. Love trikes like this because they adapt to the baby as they grow. We didn’t get one for my daughter but if we have another i will definitely be getting one #marvmondays
