The best toddler trikes for 2020 | Mum's Grapevine

As far as kids’ first sets of wheels go, it doesn’t get much sweeter than the push trikes & toddler tricycles. With extra balance and cuteness in spades, they’re the ultimate rides for exploring the world. And for being big. That too.

A push trike (or tricycle) is a super-cute three-wheeled bike for toddlers. With more stability than a traditional two-wheeled bicycle, trikes have two large wheels at the back and one at the front. Many grow with your child and convert into balance bikes, and some are even equipped with parent handles for supporting younger tots.

While they may have been around for yonks, trikes have come a long way over the years. So to help you find the perfect one for your adventurous tot, we’ve roundup up 15 standouts.
