The Real Mums Review of the SmarTrike Explorer 5 Trikes in 1

329 Shares

Proudly sponsored by SmarTrike

If you knew Daily-Prizewhat I was like before I had my son you wouldn’t believe that I love kids.  I just wasn’t the maternal type but I reeeally love kids. They are carefree, happy, have a simple view of life that is funny yet true. Oh, and they make amazingly cute viral videos. 

Do you know what I hate about having kids though? No, not the sleepless nights, tantrums or washing their wet bed sheets almost every day. It’s all the unnecessary stuff we are told we need to buy when we have a baby.

Do you want to know what I DO need? A cleaner, a chef, a personal trainer, an endless supply of money, chocolate and wine, and a stroller. A bike stroller to be exact.

I am an avid baby wearer but I can see the importance of having a good stroller too. They make EXCELLENT trollies. I need something with a big enough storage area for the emergency shopping because I don’t know about you, but when I shop for milk and bread I’m not just coming home with milk and bread. I’m coming home with a packet of light globes, new car mats, a robotic vacuum, dog food, eggs and a kitten.

My son is extremely active and keeping him happy when shopping is no easy feat, especially when it’s just a crappy, boring grocery shop. When I was asked to try the new smarTrike® Explorer 5 Trikes in 1 and write a review I jumped at the chance. It was dropped off to me at work and I was so excited I was telling everyone about it, I couldn’t wait to get home and put it together. Some assembly is required but don’t let that put you off. If I can do it with no cursing and only one block of chocolate then anyone can do it. All you need is 10 minutes and a small-medium screwdriver (ok if you must know, I took 12 minutes and 38 seconds.) It shouldn’t take longer than 15 minutes though as it has fast-click technology and even easier instructions to follow.

SmarTrike-Stages

The next day my son and I took our maiden voyage to the local supermarket. I was hopeful he wouldn’t become bored after 10 minutes in the trike and demand to get out. Well, the SmarTrike actually was as entertaining for him as they said it would be. I managed to get through the whole grocery shop with no tears and it was entertaining for me too!

We went to grab dog food (see? Not just bread and milk) and found I was probably having more fun than my little man. The 360 degree full swivel of the front wheel meant we were doing twirlies on the spot when no one was looking, or so I thought! (sorry store manager) My son is super quick to learn new skills but he can also be lazy when he wants to be and still hasn’t tried to learn how to use pedals (he owns 5 ride-on cars/bikes and uses none of them). I flicked up the pedals on the trike and he rested his feet on a lower footrest instead, which can conveniently fold away when he is finally ready to use the pedals.

We were pretending to be in a car race, he was “steering” me with his disengaged handle bars as I grabbed the things I needed and put them in the storage bag (SO much room!), little did he know I still had full steering control. When he is old enough I can flick a little button which will allow him to control the trike himself, allowing more independence.

It was fast approaching 5pm so we began making our way back home to make dinner. He was enjoying playing with the little musical toy phone and proved he is actually quite the talker, calling nanny, poppy, daddy, grandma and grandpa. The gentle bobbing along the footpath must have been pretty smooth thanks to the shock absorbers and rubber wheels, because before long I noticed he was laying his head back with distinct sleepy eyes and enjoying the ride. I reclined his seat the entire 110 degrees back so he was comfy, it was enough that he could look up at me without straining and give me smiles. #allthefeels

SmarTrike-Review

All in all I think the smarTrike Explorer 5 Trikes in 1 is really clever! It really does have some great features;

  • Confidence building – smarTrike provides active play and discovery in order to increase a child’s confidence and independence.
  • Improves coordination – smarTrike engages and challenges children in these crucial areas of learning, providing active play and discovery.
  • Easy transition – multi-functional modes allows the stroller to turn from Stroller to Trike with the click of a button, perfect for all cycling stages, from babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.
  • Safety – the built in capsule with seatbelt provides safety. All smarTrike products meet and comply with all Australian safety standards.
  • Comfort – the built-in suspension offers added comfort and padded reclining seat enables a nap on the go. The touch steering enables smooth and easy steering with the lightest touch.
  • Quality construction built to last – the sturdy and light-weight metal construction and three year warranty enables the trike to be used for more than one child with a variety of colours to suit any taste.

DividerThis Christmas, make sure the smarTrike® Explorer 5 Trikes in 1 is at the top of your list! RRP $219.99, it’s the ultimate gift for toddlers, with the new smarTrike® featuring revolutionary 360° steering technology and a 110° reclining seat. Transforming in five different ways, smarTrike® is much more fun than a stroller!

    I’d love one of these as it would make taking my lil one for walks easier for me.

  4. Avatar of AmyMcC

    I’d love being able to use it instead of our pram for small shops, as miss 2 is thoroughly bored with trolleys, hates being put in the trolley seat. And while she walks well (walking since 13 months) she still gets tired of walking and being I’m pregnant with baby #3 she is too big for me to carry for long anymore!
    This new 5 in 1 SmarTrike sounds like just what we need to make miss 2 happy to be seated for shopping – and she will be able to entertain herself too.

    I’d love that it’s not ‘just a toy’ – it would serve a purpose and be super handy. I think I’d love it as much as the kidlets!

    The best thing is that it grows with the child, avoiding the need to purchase something new every year or so.

    The features I love most are that it can be used as a stroller, making a walk to the shops fun and can fit all our shopping. If bubs needs a nap along the way I can recline the seat. Fantastic design!!

    Because it has so many stages, it has years of usage, much more than my pram which the kids are too heavy for, too bored for or just like being little escape artists

    my some will be 10mths at Christmas and I have been looking at these for a while now. I see it on the morning show and thought it was amazing my friend had a cheap trike and it drove me crazy and was super hard to turn in. my son is extremely active and alert and we love walking the dog to the park this will make his trip much more fun

    My son has been on his plastic trike before he could walk, he loved the freedom and independence. This trike would be a great next step up for him as he is too small for a bike but his plastic trike doesn’t cut it anymore. (It would also be nice to take him out without him getting away!)

    OMG! my 1yr old will love this! we have just the trike bit left of the one I bought for my older daughter 5yrs ago and she is in love with it but isn’t very good at balancing on it. For her to have her own fully functioning one would be awesome. Making shopping, going out and walking to the park a breeze as she hates the pram.

    I would love a smart trike explorer for my son so that he can go on walks with his dad. The pram is big and always in my car, we could keep the trike in dad’s car. Great that it has 5 trikes in 1 as it will see him through for a few years too.

    My 18 month old daughter doesn’t like sitting in her pram any more so it is hard to get around anywhere in a hurry. She loves riding her big brothers bike which she is too small for. This would be absolutely perfect. I’ve seen other brands similar however the SmarTrike looks more robust and very stylish.
