We were delighted when Olivia was accepted to be a baby ambassador for SmarTrike . And just in time for her 1st birthday too!
On the morning of the SmarTrikes arrival Delicious Daddy was working from home so we persuaded him to take a few minutes to put the trike together for us. Admittedly it was a little fiddly but we got there in the end! Poppy from SmarTrikes PR had chosen us a purple one. Olivias eyes lit up as soon as we took it out of the box! Purple is Mummy’s favourite colour and I was already planning my outfit for our first trip out exploring and testing!
We have been everywhere in the SmarTrike since it arrived. We have tested in Tesco’s where Olivia was treated like a celebrity. Babies and toddlers were staring and fellow mummies stopped to ask where they could purchase one! We gave them all the details www.smart-trike.com . We take it to the woods, the park and even Granddaddy’s big house! The steering is so light and smooth which is a bonus for Olivia’s Grandparents. It is far easier to push the SmarTrike then it is the buggy! Olivia is getting to an age where she is bored of travelling in her buggy and so the SmarTrike really does keep her entertained on trips out.
It has a five harness strap, a break and a lockable handlebar so safety really is covered from all angles. And there are several added features on the frame of the SmarTrike which make travelling easy. There is a sunshade to keep your baby protected from the sun, there is a tray on the bottom of the bike to hold any loose toys! There is a cup holder for a drink to keep your child refreshed and Olivia also has a phone on her purple SmarTrike just in case of an emergency! Of course it is not a real phone but it makes many different sounds and she enjoys to pretend to use it whilst she is cruising along. And if that wasn’t already enough there is one other feature which is my favourite and that is a purple back attached to the handle of the trike. I was able to store a lot in this bag on our first trip out. I packed a nappy, a packet of wipes, a nappy sack, my purse, a spare bottle of chilled milk, phone and lip gloss. And there was still room for more.
We are starting on stage one of the SmarTrike as Olivia is not walking or crawling yet. Olivia can safely use the footrest, I can strap her in with a seatbelt and there is a safety bar. I am happy for her to drink and snack in her SmarTrike as the seat cover is removable and washable!
It is clear my daughter prefers to be outside then in! She hates food shopping!
Below I have listed some pictures of the features that come with SmarTrike. They come in a selection of different colours and can be purchased from all major retail stores! We have agreed to review SmarTrike again at the second stage for when Olivia is a little bigger but I am sure it will be included in nearly all of our blog posts from now on. We love our SmarTrike and will take it everywhere with us. Luckily we have a nice big truck so can even take it on UK holidays. We are due to cruise on the Royal Caribbean from Southampton soon and have decided to take the SmarTrike on board if they will allow!
