Let’s face it. Parents are often made to feel guilty.  Guilty about how much time we spend (or don’t spend) with our kids. Guilty about what they’re eating (or, not eating). Guilty about what he’s doing, not doing, could do, might do, should have done by now or you should have done for him! Get the gist?

Guess what? You’re not alone. According to a recent smarTrike survey of 1,000 Aussie parents, 80% feel some sort of guilt when it comes to how they’re raising their kids. And we’re not just talking small amounts of guilt either. Of those surveyed,

  • 34% say they feel most guilty about the rate of their child’s development,
  • 21% feel guilt over the products they purchase for their children,
  • 19% feel guilty about the time they spend playing or exercising with their children,
  • 15% have guilt over their child’s diet, and
  • 11% have sleep guilt over their child’s sleeping pattern (not theirs!)

Further, of those surveyed, here’s some pretty confronting stats around guilt:

  • 80% of parents have second guessed a decision they have made while parenting.
  • When asked to rate themselves as a parent from 1- 10, only 10% gave themselves a rating of 9 or above.
  • When asked how extreme the pressure is on a new parent to be perfect, more than half of respondents rated it a 4 or higher out of 5.
  • 60% of people surveyed admitted they feel the most pressure from themselves to be the best parent possible.
  • 9 out of 10 fathers are working parents, and of these fathers 5 out of 10 feel guilty as if they should be at home with their child.
  • 37% of parents feel as though they sacrifice their social life the most to make their child a priority.

Okay, we get it. We all feel guilt as parents, and that’s totally normal, but we need to change the way we are MADE to feel so guilty when all we’re doing is trying to do the best we can for our kids and our family with what we have to work with right?

So let’s all try and collectively take a break, relax and do something for your kids that makes you feel a whole lot better about what we’re doing.  Parenting isn’t an easy gig and let’s focus instead on the good stuff we’re doing.

We’re feeling so guilty over how our kids are developing, what we’re buying for them and how much we play and exercise with them. It’s a no brainer we want the best for our kids, and so we don’t need to feel any guilt about that.

Thankfully, if you’ve got a little one under 3, our friends at smarTrike can help to take some of the challenge (and of course, guilt) out of the equation. You want to boost your little one’s development, make the ‘right’ type of purchases and get out and be active with your child. Fortunately, smarTrike lets you do all three (at once – so great for the time efficient ones amongst us too!) 😉

smartrike-explorer-5-trikes-in-1

If you’re wondering how buying a smarTrike is any different than making any other tricycle purchase, it’s all in the 5-in-1 design! The Explorer 5 trikes in 1 transforms to grow with your child. Not only can your child use the Explorer from 10-months through 3-years, but you don’t have to go out any buy new products every few months.  Cash saving, time saving and just a downright smart purchase!

smartrike-explorer-adaptableThe revolutionary transforming design starts at Stage 1 with a reclining seat, stroller style. As your child grows you can move the seat so that your toddler is sitting upright. If your tot isn’t exactly ready to pedal out and off on their own, you can still control the motion of the trike with the handle. This allows them to start gaining a sense of independence and work on his motor control, without fear that he’ll get hurt, topple over or make a break for it (and we all know just how quickly a rogue toddler can get away from us now, don’t we?!)

When your child is ready, you can slowly hand control over to him and transform the Explorer into a fully functional trike (in other words, your preschooler can pedal and control it all on his own).

Best of all the smarTrike is a great investment for your kids, lasting years and adapting to them as they grow (so they don’t grow out of it too quickly!)  It helps your child’s motor development, so it’s educational (in a physical way). And, on top of that, it gives you the opportunity to spend time exercising with your little one! This 5-in-1 trike is a 3-in-1 parenting guilt reducer.

This July Toy Sale, parents can shop guilt-free by choosing smarTrike’s latest innovation, the smarTrike Explorer 5 trikes in 1.  Keep an eye out for smarTrike at Toys R Us and Target throughout the July sale season. www.smartrike.com

While the smarTrike might not solve the fourth or fifth guilt issues that the survey shows (diet and sleep patterns), tackling three out of five isn’t just good – it’s pretty amazing!

    The smarTrike explorer 5 in 1 is amazing and just what I need for my two year old daughter, who will soon grow out of her stroller but still be too tired to walk for long. She would love this so much! So many wonderful features too, I especially love the removable bag!

  2. I love it how it changes and adjusts as your child grows. That is definitely a money saver!

  3. I love that it transforms and grows with the little one. It is like 5 trikes in one. And on top of this, it is so versatile and looks good to. Perfect for them to learn how to use the paddles. My one grows so fast and this trike grows with her.

  4. Bethany Allen Reply

    I love that it engages the little one – there’s nothing worse than tired cranky boredom, and this helps them to be a part of everything

  5. I love how much more engaging and interactive this would be for my little ray of sunshine, especially compared to traditional strollers. Fantastic idea to adapt to the child’s age and abilities too, slowly giving them more and more control as they develop and grow!

  6. Ying Ying TAN Reply

    One thing I learnt from parenting my 1st child was that it is worth investing in items for your kids that lasts for years, adapting as they grow. This SmarTrike Explorer will be the perfect gift for my toddler who just found his new love for walking and riding!

  7. Karina Lee Reply

    I love that it lasts for a long time – from beginner to advanced rider! I’m a big fan of getting good use out of kids toys!

  8. It grows with your little one, therefore saving money too. 36 months of not having to buy something a bit bugger with each mini-growth spurt.

  9. Jim Riddle Reply

    opportunity to excercise with your little one, whilst having fun together

  10. Innovative invention at its finest, stylish and love the colours, would love this for my little one.

  11. James Pizzey Reply

    that it will be used from 6 months to 3 years old so it will be enjoyed

  12. What an awesome product!!! I wish it come in adults size so i could be pushed around…lol

  13. Katrina Stubbs Reply

    I love how safe it looks and that it’s nice and sturdy.

  14. I love that it gradually hands over control to the child. Watching them get that independence is great.

  15. I love that this promotes a healthy lifestyle for kids from such a young age! It’s also great that it’s one product that can transform into so many different products for the different age groups (so you’re not spending more money each time!) I’d love one in blue for my little man Jobe

  16. Nicole Woods Reply

    I love how versatile it is and the fact that it is good for babies right through to their toddler stage. Amazing!

  17. I love how it grows with your child, I hate having to buy new products after a few months because they have grown out of it. Such an excellent product for youngsters & their parents.

  18. Rebecca Yangzon Reply

    Perfect for for young children teaches them hand eye skills ,fine motor skills and its just so versatile .Perfect for mumma too with lots of fantastic features .

  19. Cat helbig Reply

    Love the handy storage bags on it but really love the sun visor but most of all love the easy touch steering to make going for long walks easier

  20. I love bring able to take bub for a walk not in a pram so he feels he is more interactive

  21. Mel Heinrich Reply

    A practical yet fun trike and stroller in one that promotes a healthy lifestyle.

  22. Richard Harrison Reply

    Love that it grows with the baby. Nothing worse than yet another piece of equipment that is too small before you’ve used it three times

  23. TanyaCrerar Reply

    I love that Mr Independence can think he’s in total control while I am making sure we get to where we are going on time and in one piece!

  24. I love that it makes ‘Mummy’s errands’ a whole lot more fun for the child. Lasting until my daughter turns 3 is great too!

  25. Love that it is practical and fun and like most things my baby will not out grow it

  26. Makes going for walks fun for the kids, who at this age don’t always like being confined to the pram!

  27. Teresa Clark Reply

    I love that it transitions with your child as they and their abilities grow and change. I love that it allows them to maintain “independence” riding the bike (in their eyes anyway). great bike all round.

  28. The SmarTrike grows and changes as my child grows and becomes more independent.

  29. The biggest thing for me is the fact it’s lightweight and easy to lift and put into and get out of the car.

  30. Mary Moschovakis Reply

    The reclining
    seat is great as it grows with the child meaning you can move the seat so that
    they are sitting upright and the fact you have control of the trike with the handle so stops dramas like them toppling over and hurting themselves.

  31. KAT ROGERS Reply

    Love love love that as my little man developes and grows he can take the smart Bike on the journey with hin

  32. Rebecca Evans Reply

    I love how it grows and changes. There is always so much to buy for little people because they grow out of everything and this makes these stages easier.

  33. I am grandmother of a 4 month old and about to start caring for him two days a week. I am looking for products that will build on his developmnt. I am very impressed the smadTrike can be changed 5 times and is suitable for 10 months to 3 years.
    Kim Mitchell

  34. The smarTrike can be used for years as it transforms as the child grows. Fantastic feature making it great value.

  35. Tara Glennie Reply

    I love how much life you can get out of it. I hate buying toys that my boy gets fed up with or grows out of a couple of months later.

  36. Sarah Turnbull Reply

    I would love to win this for my great nephew. We don’t see him very often but would love to be able to give this to him

  37. Angela McCully Reply

    I love that you can have parent & child control. Love the reclining chair too 🙂

  38. Jennifer Denney Reply

    i love that it grows with my little one and we both can control, that it has the reclining chair and a suncover. I love that if we win this my lilt man and i can have bonding time out doors and we are both getting exercise and having fun at the same time.

  39. What a great product which helps your child’s motor development. Exercise is so important as your child grows. Years of fun, learning and exercise, just a fantastic product for my growing child.

  40. Rachel Ch'ng Reply

    I love that the SmarTrike Explorer transforms and “grows” together with a growing child extending it’s “life” in a household full of outgrown toys. Also love that it has a comfortable recline seat option with in-built harness ensuring a safe ride. I especially love the new design wheels (hopefully this will mean easier maneuverability which will help extensively given my carpel tunnel syndrome) and extra storage options for shopping, personal belongings and very useful cupholder.

  41. Rachael Brown Reply

    I just love that it looks super cool. My adorable kid would look like beyond cute riding that around with his little sunnies on 🙂

  42. Jennalee Izzard Reply

    How handy the smart trike would be for both parent/grandparent and child. It’s a gift that keeps on giving as it turns from baby carrier to toddler trike. I love that I can see the smart trike fitting into our family. I know it would give my son and his man hours of fun when they go on their adventures together

  43. Bronwen Scruton Reply

    I love that it can progress with the child right up until they want their own independence on a big kids bike. It would also allow me to get out and about with the older kids on their bikes, without Bub feeling like he’s missing out being stuck in the pram.

  44. smart just like the bubs it grows and develops with their learning

  45. Rachel amanatidis Reply

    I love that it is so Versatile as it transforms with each stage of the child’s ability .. Giving them the confidence they need to grow and explore .. Super cool colours too i love the blue one

  46. Julia Morton Reply

    that its safe and will give my child independence and confidenCe all whilst having fun and being ‘GROWN UP”

  47. Adriana Badita Reply

    I like that it transforms as the child grows and helps them develop confidence.

  48. Katherine Hedges Reply

    I love how convenient it is for bubs and me for the park and the shops

  49. Monique Hirst Reply

    That I can use it for both my girls as it adapts to more than one age/development stage. Safe and convenient

  50. Carol Thorpe Reply

    Smart trike is much more fun than a stroller and fantastic for babies, toddlers and pre schoolers

  51. The transition from stage to stage. It helps eliminate environmental waste because you don’t need to keep purchasing a new piece of equipment.

  52. It is multi-purpose – stroller, tricycle with steering controlled by an older responsible person, and a tricycle for a child to ride independently. It has sidebars that prevent a child falling off.

  53. It’s convenient when going to the shops and getting a few things and will last a while as it has different stages to accommodate for your child growing

  54. It is perfect for baby as they reach those important milestones as it grows with the child and helps them transition from baby to toddler

  55. Cathy Anderson Reply

    What an amazing trike! Saves buying so many pieces of equipment!

  56. I have wanted one of these for a long time but something else always seems to be a priority when spending money. This would be perfect as our local park is about a 5 minute walk for me but my 2 year old takes about half an hour and has to sit on a fence for a rest on the walk home. This would be perfect.

  57. My little guy is super independent and this would be a great truce in our battles at the moment, it’s a fun way to still have a little control while they are in the “drivers seat”. Love it!

  58. Matthew Toby Reply

    My daughter is wanting to ride a bike like her big sisters which is very cute. But she is to small. Sad face. This would be awesome for her.

  59. I love that it grows with your child making it the perfect place for rest and play whilst also enhancing sensory development, eye-hand co-ordination and fine motor skills!

  60. Gail Davies Reply

    I love that it is so versatile and is able to be used for many years ,,,

  61. Rachel Wilson Reply

    Such a great Trike , being able to grow with your child, I’d love to win this for my best friends baby boy, he will be just the right age in summer to begin on this trike 🙂

  62. Valerie Wee Reply

    I can let my little man to use it till he is 3 years old. Able to see him grow and learning different skills in one trike.

  63. Christie Louise Reply

    I LOVE how the smarTrike 5 in 1 explorer grows with your child. We go through so many bikes/ride on’s and have to either pass down or donate once they grow out of it. But with the SmarTrike, it grows with your child, and is easy to adjust! Also perfect when they get tired and you can switch to the stroller ! Brilliant!

  64. Brianna Taylor Reply

    I love how you dont need to purchase another bike for 3 years! Kids grow out of everything so fast so it’d be nice to not have to worry about a new bike every year!

  65. Allison Scrivener Reply

    This bike is great as it grows with the child. Kids grow so fast. Knowing that you won’t need to get a new bike every year is fantasti!

  66. Lisa Loizou Reply

    I love how it grows with the child. We all know how fast kids grow up and I don’t like having to throw things away. This is perfect, it will last for ages

  67. Lauren Jordan Reply

    I love that it can be directed by me with the handle. What a fun way to get around!

  68. Kathleen Usher Reply

    I love the sunshade plus that it’s so stylish. Also the ability to use from such a young age and slowly adapt it to the child’s growing needs.

  69. I love how it saves you money – you don’t have to buy something new every time your child outgrows a stage, just convert the smartrike and away you go

  70. I love the fact it grows with the child. It isn’t a 6 month bike that will be unused after a short amount of time. The fact it gets us out of the house is just an added bonus!

  71. Ashley Beech Reply

    I love that it can be used for the first few years of a child’s life, which means it can create some great memories for your son/daughter to cherish! Whether it’s being pushed around for a walk, or learning how to pedal, it’s also a great learning experience!

  72. Kelly Lucas Reply

    I love the fact that it grows with your child and is so simple it makes getting out the house a breeze

  73. The transforming design as the child ages and develops is terrific!

  74. Jenny morgan Reply

    I am a nanna and a full time babysitter for my grandson. This would make my days easier, especially as he grows. My body is definitely feeling the results of an old pusher.

  75. Ratnickissy Reply

    It will create great bonding time with my bubs and we will both get a kick out of it – fun for her, exercise for me 🙂

  76. As a parent you try to be everything at once. I love that the Smart Trike is an ultimate multitasker: a stroller, a shopping trolley, a trike and best of all, an excuse to get out and have a breather!

  77. Wendy Hatton Reply

    Easy maneuvering is definitely a plus from my point of view. And having it convert to a trike is great- no having to buy more bits of equipment as they get older.

  78. Tess Eames Reply

    I love the flexibility and value of having a product that grows with my family from 10 months to 3 years! I feel like the cost of having to continuously buy products once bubs hit a certain age is just so disheartening. It also helps that the SmarTrike is seriously stylish and has super steering too! This independence building SmarTrike is just what the doctor ordered!

  79. Lucia Saal Reply

    I love that this is the only pram I will need form baby to toddler!

  80. Kate Slack Reply

    I love the way it grows with your toddler, great value for money.

  81. Xzavia Green Reply

    That it grows with my child and gives me less reason to feel guilty! I’d be out and about more, save money AND helping with my childs physical development and so much more!

  82. Dorothy Kezich Reply

    The Smart Trike 5 in 1 Explorer grows (or shrinks rather) with the child, means you get a lot of use out of them over a couple of years.They’re a worthwhile investment.Perfect for developing social and communication skills as we can talk about the things the child is pointing at while we are walking

  83. Nikki Cashion Reply

    I love how long the child can use this trike for , great colors also.

  84. Such a great product! It’s a fun way for mum/dad and toddler to get out and enjoy being outdoors and love that it grows with your child. Lovely design and colours too.

  85. Anita Andrews Reply

    It’s great for a product to grow as the child does, making it value for money product to own.

  86. Barbara Fehmel Reply

    I love it that you have a long handle to push the trike along with not like the old days you had to lean over and push the seat to make it move. What a bad back I used to have.
    I love all ther colours but would like “PURPLE ” please.

  87. Its a versatile product that grows with your child. Great value for money for budget conscience parents. Great colours adn stylish.

  88. Gillian Harridge Reply

    Safety and style, ticks all the boxes for peace of mind.

  89. Michelle Budge Reply

    I really love that you can put your shopping in the back, and it doesn’t tip the pram over.

  90. Shannon Wotton Reply

    I love that you can use it from 10 months to 3 years old and that you can have control until your child is ready to take control on their own!

  91. jody buhagiar Reply

    I like how my child can use the Explorer from 10-months through 3-years.

  92. Scott Crumlin Reply

    VERSATILITY! You can use it in a variety of ways and it last WITH a growing child, doesn’t need replaced as they outgrow it quickly.

  93. you will get A LOT of use out of this! i love the versatility of the design 🙂 makes outings fun for the kids!

  94. Renee Bolton Reply

    This would be amazing, easy for me, yet fun for the little ones. Love the storage, and how it changes as they grow!

  95. I love that littlies can feel like “big kids”, that it converts as the child grows & it has an awesome carry bag for ALL the necessities 🙂

  96. Kasey Evans Reply

    I love the five stages this fantastic trike offers for little ones as they grow.

  97. Lara Daebritz Reply

    He’s only little so Mummy will steer,
    But she’s older (and without any fear)
    So she can ride solo on the smarTrike
    And imagine she’s on a real ‘big girl’ bike!!

  98. Love how it grows with them the 5 different stages is the best and knowing it grows with them along the way makes it great value for money and there going to have endless fun out exploring and learning and developing skills and is fun for mum and dad as well watching and teaching the little ones new things

  99. SMARTRIKE’s super smart, seriously sensible design, catering for growth in five stages. Would allow a ‘greenie’ family outing, all cycling to the park on our green ‘machines’.

  100. Tracey Liljegren Reply

    Love that I can trade the pram in for the smart trike and will be used as much or more than the car most weeks as we pound the pavements to pick up siblings from school, hit the park and visit friends at playgroup. It also makes long walks with siblings more enjoyable as the toddler feels “grown up” on their own bike and able to collect their own pile of nature in the back to take home to make collages (one of our favourite activities)!! I love the purple!

  101. Melissa Carmichael Reply

    Love how it grows through the stages and a great way to get around with the toddler while wearing the newborn.

  102. Donna Bennett Reply

    Such a great invention. From baby to toddler this SmarTrike has you covered!.

  103. Julie Hodsman Reply

    Grows with your child. And the bag/storage at the back for shopping/keys/purse, etc.

  104. Sara Holley Reply

    Love that you can control the motion of the trike with the handle as my little Miss is sitting, but not up to pedalling yet. I can see her loving this and it would really save my back 🙂

  105. Great for walking to the shops, holds your shopping while your able to be out enjoying time with your child, my daughter would love it!

  106. Not having to buy 3-4 different bikes / trikes along the way! Brilliant invention 🙂

  107. Honestly I love that you are generously giving 3 of the bikes away for free!!!

  108. I have been wanting one of these so desperately for my child. Smart trike is adaptable for growing children, it encourages a healthy lifestyle, it is practical in the storage for mum and dad, and they learn how to ride a bike.

  109. Adele Smith Reply

    The fact that this Smart Trike lasts years and grows with each step and development stage of your child is pure genius and both a time & cost saver.

  110. Bec D'owney Reply

    I love that it is great value – to last all the way to 3 years means so much less spent on bikes and trikes. I’m rich and my garage is more empty!

  111. Angel Caplin Reply

    I love that it gives your child confidence and independence, while also staying safe and secure. In turn keeping mum happy & stress free.

  112. Yen T T Huynh Reply

    I love smartrike bike because it has reclining seat. My baby can sleep when she feels tired.

  113. Love the ability to adapt as child grows. Also love the storage for when parents use it to get out & get active. Allows room for all the essentials like water bottles, snacks & change of clothes.

  114. I love how much it can be adapted over time as your child grows!
    Being reclining as a pram alternative is awesome too! Especially for when my little boy is small still

  115. Lisa Andrews Reply

    I love how it grows with the child and allows the swapping of parent to child control as they inevitably get to the ‘do it myself’ phase.

  116. Karen Darcy Reply

    A smarTrike® Explorer would be versatile and good looking at the same time.

  117. Laid back sleeping without the head bob sounds dreamy. My eldest constantly fell asleep and I had to carry him or he hung from the bike sideways.

  118. Rebecca Foster Reply

    I love that it is great for different stages of developments of your child. Like when they are little they can pretend they are riding a bike, later on they can peddle by themselves, with the parent holding on so they can’t go too far away.

  119. My son would LOVE one of these! At 10 months of age he is already obsessed with anything that has wheels. I love the idea that it grows with the child, that the parent can steer it to start with and it then becomes a trike that they can ride themselves. He would love to ride in this to pick his sister up from kinder rather than sitting in the pram.

  120. Julia Mason Reply

    Great giveaway, I love that it lasts 3 years as my child grows!

  121. Debrah Bassett Reply

    i love how it grows with my child and eventually they can peddle it themselves and it reclines when they are tired Awesome

  122. Sophie Miller Reply

    I love how it can grow with your child as they grow and develop. I also like how I can control it for them while they are little and then they can learn to peddle on their own. The seat reclining is also a great feature especially for when my little one is sleepy or has a nap!

  123. Definetly the different stages of developmen, growing with my child.

  124. Jessica Ervin Reply

    I love the versatility of the trike and how it caters across a broad range of ages

  125. Leigh Tannenberg Reply

    Fantastic that our little ones are weather protected, able to last in it for a few year. While also being enjoyable to push as much as it’s enjoyable to ride in it. I only wish they had these when we were younger.

  126. I love how I can push this but little one is still having fun plus she can learn to push pedals making future bike riding easier

  127. Juanita Munro Reply

    It lets my son feel independent, free and happy! Because that’s what every parent wants is for their child to be most of all.. HAPPY

  128. Alicia Cathrene Kimberley Reply

    My son would love this he’s just getting into bikes and he loves being out in the frest air he’s getting out of that pram stage so this would be perfect!!!!

  129. Elisabeth Martins Reply

    I love how its oh, so stylish and but so handy at the same time.
    It adapts as your child grows which is also a big BONUS for me.

  130. Jenny Woods Reply

    I love that my great grandson would be able to feel independent but still be safe until he is ready to control the smarTrike Explorer himself.

  131. Claire H Simmons Reply

    it grows with my child and therefore always a part of our learning journey

  132. I like the big bag on back so can go shopping instead of taking pram. I’d like purple please.

    Wow…the Smartrike really is smart – I love the longevity of this product….almost an entire 3 years it will be relevant in the child’s life…that is definitely NOT a wasted investment.

  135. Veronica Shine Reply

    My baby will love feeling independent whilst I still have control as necessary. It’s got a great holding area for if we go shopping and even has a cup holder. What’s not to like?!

  136. Samala Cambridge Reply

    I love that it is so versatile and grows with them across so many stages!

  137. I love how this will entertain me and my little man when we do the boring and hectic grocery shopping

  138. The versatility of it. Shops, parks, day trips, walks. This a great way for my independent son to enjoy time out and reduce the stress of carrying him or also running after him!

  139. Tess Howard Reply

    Its going to last more than just a few months. We’re talking years! No guilt over this purchase because its fun, practical and makes economic sense, not to mention my nephew will love it!

  140. Superior craftsmanship
    magnificent fun

    I love all the different stages the trike can do as it grows with your child and whether its a stroll, walk, sleep, shopping with fun and ease

  142. I love that it can convert to mirror your child’s stages of development and it’s so handy when you’re out and about for stowing away shopping

  143. Margaret O'Shea Reply

    I love that is changes with the growth of your child. Handy for those walks in the park and shopping. Would love either the blue or grey for my grandson.

    The smarTrike® Explorer sure is 5 Trikes in 1. I love the style, lightness and versatility.

  145. The transformation from stroller to trike is awesome, not to mention value for money.

  146. Its so versatile, lasting for various ages. I have two boys so the idea that they can both use it is great

  147. I love that the bike can change as the child grows and develops! One bike for those first few years of high dependence on their parents.

  148. I love that it’s an awesome way kids can explore the world in comfort and through fun. After all prams can be boring things but the smarTrike® Explorer 5 Trike is anything but boring and doubles as a bike and pram. It’s a great way to aid in developing kids motor skills and experience the world. We’d love to enjoy a smarTrike® ride.

    I love it’s unique versatility and practicality….so much usage to be gained from having the smarTrike® Explorer 5 Trikes in 1 at your fingertips….and also love the benefit it offers in your child’s own body and skill development…..add that it has a brilliant stylish flair to it and it’s a definite winner in my books

    I love how useful it is and that it changes as your child grows!

    I love how long it lasts. Not having to replace items like scooters and bikes would save a fortune over the years plus it’s great to be able to pass this down to other friends and family.

  152. Lauren Thomas Reply

    I love the fact that when your child is ready, you can slowly hand control over to him and transform the Explorer into a fully functional trike. I think that’s really handy.

    SmarTrike transforms in five different ways,
    From baby to 3 years it all the new craze!
    Love the 360 degree wheel and the amazing cool cart,
    Even the bottle holder is best design for a start!
    This fully functional trike also looks really cool,
    Transforming from 10 months til at pre-school.

    I love that it covers all ages and developmental stages, it lets your child slowly take control when they are ready. Plus they are super cool!

  156. Berenice Lawrence Reply

    I love that this trike will last 5 years during the different stages of development and growth.

  157. Leanne White Reply

    What’s not to love, the design, the Colours and all the beaut features you don’t find elsewhere

  158. staceyshailer Reply

    I love the Touch Steering – nothing worse than trying to push a wayward pram or trike one-handed!

  159. Belinda Jade Reply

    I love the ease of transition, the trike looks magnificent & stylish in all 5 of its stages!

  160. Andieharrie Reply

    fabulous looking trike
    that converts from a pram to a bike
    colorful too
    perfect you me and my kids too

  161. Katie Louise Smith Reply

    I love the excitement my older daughter gets out of her Smart Trike, especially when she grows and moves into the next stage when ready.
    With our new addition to the family, I can’t wait for him to experience the same joy as his sister when he is ready.

  162. Melissa McClelland Reply

    Would be great to have and all-in-one instead of 500 different things in the boot!

  163. Savanna Robinson Reply

    I love that it can be used for 2 years as they grow and change.

  164. a great interactive way to bring exercise into our little one’s day

  165. Kate Powell Reply

    I love that it gets my daughter out of the pram and shes able to feel like one of the big girls when we go for our weekly walk at the local wildlife park!

  166. My daughter can be included in my exercise and feels like she’s part of it from now until she’s 3 with the 5 in 1!

  167. This would encourage us to get out and be active as a family more and my husband even said he’d push our girl in this. Which is huge as he hates pushing the pram. It’s very cool and stylish.

  168. Tash Allan Reply

    I LOVE that it’s so versatile and that it turns into a trike that my boy could drive himself. It’s a great replacement for a stroller with the high handle to push it unlike a lot of strollers that you have to bend down to

  169. Tamaryn Schroeder Reply

    I love that with an almost 5 year age gap between my children my little boy will be able to ‘join in’ when we go for a bike ride. He loves his independence and to look around at everything. The SmarTrike would be a perfect fit in our family!

  170. Makes outings more fun for them, instead of being stuck in a pram.

  171. Cherie Bekker Reply

    Funky looking alternative to a pram, and it would “grow” with my little girl.

  172. I soo need this in my life,and in my 2 year old`s life;this will help us explore the outdoors more.

  173. Melinda Bolitho Reply

    SmarTrike is the perfect balance of active & controlled for kids! They can feel like they are riding their own bike but at the same time we can be in control! As they get bigger they can gain more and more independence until finally they can go it alone! Genius!

  174. I love the adaptability of the SmarTrike! The colour doesn’t matter, it would last my bub until at least our next baby is ready to use it! Perfect!

  175. Eva Kiraly Reply

    What a fantastic way to learn how to ride, in safety and with exercise for both of us!

  176. I love that it will last my child so long, and that we can bond at the same time!

  177. Jacoba Evans Reply

    It’s so adjustable, has a “Sunroof’ and safety straps. Great for kids to develop their gross motor skills.

  178. I love EVERYTHING about it – the most appropriate feature for my family is the sunroof. This harsh Aussie sun affects our outings and this would make it much more comfortable.

  179. Great for different stages and different ages of bub’s growth and development.

  180. This smartrike is a godsend for happy healthy mums that like to get out and exercise and want to bring their little ones along. I know i for one would get out in the gorgeous sunrays more with one of these

  181. Sheena Grey Reply

    I love the fact that it has a reclining seat,just in case the little ones want to take a nap on the go

  182. I love how it grows with your child, you don’t need to buy 5 different bikes because this one bike does it all

  183. Danielle Robertson Reply

    I love the sunroof, and the fact that this product grows with my daughter. I love that it encourages her to be outside so we can do active things together. But MOST of all, I love that if she is on the smarTrike Explorer, she can’t watch Peppa Pig on repeat!!

  184. Laura Scriven Reply

    It grows with the child,
    So they can explore wild.
    Promoting outside play,
    Like in my day!

  185. Kayleen Mcguirk Reply

    Purple one is gorgeous , there be no excuse not to get out and about with this beauty – you would do i few laps just in case your neighbours missed you first time around 🙂 i love the fact that it would be around for awhile because it caters for diffrent ages and milestones – not to mention the space you saving to store one item and not 5 !!!!

  186. Sarah Fairley Reply

    What a brilliant idea! A perfect compact all in one. A perfect and safe mobiliser for my little one. It’ll last for several years, it’ll help us get out and about. Of it’s many benefits, there is no doubt.

  187. I love that it is a 5-in-1 which transforms for the child as they develop. They can happily explore and exercise for many years!

  188. Deborah Bolam Reply

    What a great idea the girls would love the purple one looks very safe

  189. Keonie Dyce Reply

    I love the fact that it grows with the child so it is a good investment, because they grow so quick at this age. I also like that it has a sunroof so our little miss can enjoy keeping up with her big sister and I dont need to worry about her burning.

  190. Joanne Parkinson Reply

    You save on buy all different kinds of trick as it is all in one for over the ages and grows with bub

  191. Vanessa Di Cicco Reply

    It’s durable, sensible, fun, and clever – being able to use the same trike over a few years makes it ideal for ANY family!

  192. Barbara Fehmel Reply

    Oh! how wonderful it is for parents these days, When my children were young it was a back breaking job to push them on their trikes, I had to bend double to push the seat so that my son could have a ride. No long handle to push with, what a great creative idea.

  193. Rhee Barry Reply

    I love that I could take my daughter out and get her used to a bike while i have control

  194. it would be more fun being like a the big kids and riding along side of them when we go for a walk or ride to the park

  195. Belinda Smith Reply

    I love that it grows with the child. Sick of buying so much stuff that bub doesn’t need for long!

  196. Kathryn Dunn Reply

    I love that it grows with the child, so they can enjoy it for a decent time before they become too big. They grow so fast!

  197. I love that it can be used as a fun stroller which reclines so they can still sleep & a bike for the child as they grow and learn how to use it.

  198. The smartTrike in blue would able us to travel and investigate new places on the path of, laughing so hard we’d have to hold onto our bellys.

  199. Making walks with the littles ones a little more exciting than being in a pram

  200. I love the new 5 in 1 trike. This would help my Bubs feel part of the action whilst my oldest is on her bike or scooter. The Trike would allow her to assert her independence whilst I was still in control.

  201. Nicole Gurney Reply

    These sounder great. So much storage. My daughter would love x

  202. jaime farrands Reply

    My oldest had a similar one and now it’s time for his baby brother to use it… not a chance mr 4 will give it up. They’re just so great how they can grow with the kid. They’re durable too

  203. Michelle Chick Reply

    We have one at the moment that is made up of all different trikes as we couldn’t afford a brand new one so just bought 2nd hand and modified them.

  204. Sara Johnston Reply

    I absolutely love that master 2 will still feel independent whilst I’ll still have control to keep him safe: making our walks enjoyable for us both for years to come as the smarTrike 5-in-1 Explorer grows with him 🙂

  205. Felicity Walton Reply

    Aubrey & I are yet to experience the amazing smarTrike 5-in-1 Explorer trike but what I love about it most is the consistent & strong positive feedback not just this model trike but the smarTrike brand in general has. It is very encouraging & reassuring with a product you’re entrusting your child’s safety with.

  206. Trudy Spreadborough Reply

    I love that it will last for longer than 12 months. Many hours of happiness will come from it!

  207. Lauren Ibbotson Reply

    That it suits for a range of age groups making it a product that is great for value!

  208. Adapts to the childs age and ablity, as they grow the SmarTrike changes to suit their needs meaning not only value for money but also encouraging quality family time outdoors for many months making healthy a lifestyle. Looks fantastic, will definitely look into this.

  209. Love that it grows with my child so it can adapt to each stage of her development. We can also use it instead of the stroller so it’s more fun.

  210. Yvonne Krikken Reply

    I love how versatile it is. It’s going to allow our daily walks to be more interactive with my son. He will feel he is more apart of our walks instead of just sitting there. I’m also hoping it will encourage healthy activity from a young age.
