Joovy Tricycoo Tricycle

When my boys are riding their bikes, my daughter wants to keep up. A stroller does not cut it anymore. She wants to feel like a big girl too. We had a push tricycle that was decent but not great. It was hard to steer and turn corners but she was happy and we got by. Recently Joovy was kind enough to send me  a Pink Tricycoo Tricycle for review.  It is so much better than any other push tricycle out there (this is our 3rd one). The Tricycoo allows my daughter to feel like she is riding her own bike but she does not have to pedal and we have control over where she goes. I love this well made tricycle.

Features:

  • For toddlers 18+ months up to 44 lbs
  • Parent Push Handle – removable, parent push handle overrides steering so you direct your toddler, 4 positions, adjustable from 32.5 to 38 inches high
  • Baby Surround Arms – removable, keeps your toddler safe while they are still learning to get their balance on the trike
  • Footrest – folds up when not in use
  • Pedals – can be locked to allow child to pedal with their own power, unlock for free spin
  • Wheels – injection-molded wheels with urethane treads which allows them to roll quietly – flip a lever on the wheels to engage or disengage
  • Bell on handlebar
  • Basket on rear for storage
  • Steel frame
  • Lightweight at14 lbs
  • Assembly required

So far my husband, my daughter and I love the Tricycoo. The bell is a hit! The Tricycoo is easy to push and takes turns well. It is more streamlined and compact than other push tricycles. The compact size can be a problem if you have a taller or bigger child. The other minor problem is that your child can interrupt steering if they turn the handlebars. This can get challenging at times but it is far from being a deal breaker.

The Tricycoo is great for teaching younger ones coordination and balance. Once your child is old enough, remove the surround arms, flip up the footrest and your baby can practice peddling like a big kid. You can eventually remove the push handle for independent trikers.

Tricycoo is more expensive ($130) than some of its competitors but considering it has a steel frame, it will last longer than its plastic counterparts. In addition, the bright colors (Greenie, Orangie, Black, Pink) make it even more visually appealing.
