My husband and I decided that since our granddaughter loves outdoors and is getting more active, maybe it was time to get her something she could ride on. I contacted Little Tikes and they provided me with a 4 in 1 Trike Bike to review! Gracen’s loving outdoors even more now!
Yes you will need to put the bike together. Assembly is easy and doesn’t take a long time to put together, maybe an hour. Pay attention to the details of the wheels, etc. There are different patterns which if you aren’t careful you can put them the wrong way and have to start all over again like my husband did! LOL
The Little Tikes 4 in 1 Trike Bike is intended for children Ages 9 months – 3 years and has 4 Stages to grow with your child.
- Stage 1-Guided (9+ months) Parents to push and control-When the blue waist bar is
installed the child will be unable to turn the wheel
- Stage 2-Learning (12+ months) Toddlers can learn how to pedal, child is unable to
turn the wheel
- Stage 3-Developing (18+ months) Remove the waist bar, child can now steer while
parent still has control with the push bar
- Stage 4-Independent (36+ months) Remove the push bar to let kids go on their own
with parent supervision.
The seat adjusts to fit almost any size child. There is also a 5-point seat belt harness and protective safety bar. The trike bike also has an adjustable shade for our little angel and a push handle so we can steer with one hand. There is also a drink/bottle holder and basket on the back, perfect for putting your cell phone, toys, snack, etc. The steering can be be locked in the front for full parental control or released so the little ones can steer as well.
As you can see in the picture we do not have the safety bar attached, that is because our granddaughter who is 14 months old doesn’t need it. This is a picture of when we first showed her the bike, she hopped on it ready to go! LOL
Here we are trying it out for the first time.
Gracen’s already trying to put her feet on the peddles and I have no doubt she will master riding this bike by the age of 2 or so. She’s so smart in figuring things out, she knows her feet belong on the peddles, but she can’t hold them there yet. LOL
Gracen loved her walk with Grampa. She got to see planes take off up close and I think that’s going to be a grampa and granddaughter favorite thing to do as long as she enjoys it.
My husband will continue to adjust it as she becomes more bigger and more confident in her riding skills, and eventually make it a stand alone trike in Stage 4.

I’m a Gramma to a beautiful, funny, smart little girl who was born in July of 2014. She’s the joy of my family and I’m so very proud to be a gramma (an alternate spelling for grandma)! I am a coffee, music, movie and outdoor lover! I love festivals and concerts. Spending time with my family is the best time in my life. I love my blogging job and all it has given me.
