See so many of these on second hand sites but rarely any out and about. Are these worth having? Not sure if they are really that easy to pop in the boot of the car as an occasional change to the pushchair in the summer ? Are they easy to steer? Don't want to shell out if it's going to end up in the shed? Advice please!
We have one, DS2 got it about 9months old, ds1 had one too.
We use it for local walks to the park, school run etc. It doesn't fit it in our car so no taking it anywhere else. Not good in bad weather as it's too exposed but great in the summer. Also great for the in between stage where you don't need a pushchair all the time but they get tired walking.
The steering on the smart trike ones are good, patented 'light touch' steering but on cheaper versions it is truly rubbish.
In the olden days before I knew of mumsnet I was on another forum with groups by due month. It seemed like every single person bought one of these as a riteof passage, much like you move from moses to cot.
Ive only ever seen about 3 in real life. I figure these people are on that forum.
