This has happened to our grandson and he sustained painful grazing on the back of his foot due to this incident.
I bought this trike for my 10 month old granddaughter for Christmas.
She absolutely loves it, it was her favourite toy at Christmas and still is. When she is not riding on it she is lovingly examining it!
I was impressed by the quality and strength of it, and thought that it was good value for money.
Now the bad news, durability issues do not appear till some time later and we found after only using around a dozen times (7-8 outside), and the Trike stored inside, we have had issues. The rubber inserts which sit in grooves on the plastic wheels seem as though they have stretched and slip off the plastic wheels, making the Trike unusable.
On trying to address this issue so we could use the Trike, we found out that Smart Trike's UK agent Mookie Toys only provide a 6 month warranty, possibly a telling story in itself, and were pretty unhelpful, only really looking to sell us replacement wheels @ £25 - of course no telling if they would be any better.
With similar reviews on numerous sites also highlighting this issue, we bought a second hand Little Tikes Trike, all in all much stronger and more likely to last the time (one of the original appeals) but without what appears to be a design weakness.
We tried to repair the wheel but without much luck, and have left us with a dilemma in what to do with the 1st birthday present from Grandma.
Wish I had read more reviews on the cons...
From the adult perspective it is great as you feel that the child is secure and well supported. The pedal disengagement is good as is the sun shade and being able to push and steer 'remotely' is perfect even being very tall.
My only concern is how long it will last. We live on fairly rough lanes and I am not sure it will sustain the bumps/wear and tear. That said, it is holding together very well so far and hopefully it will be fine for a good while to come.
Re comments about it being cheap and flimsy, at the end of the day it's a plastic kid's trike and feels like one, but unless it's treated really badly I can't see it falling apart before she outgrows it.
Re safety concerns, this was also the big issue for us. Personally I don't think the pedals / footrest issue will be an issue and I'm really sorry if anyone's kiddie finds otherwise. My only concern is that when the steering is fully to one way or another I wonder if the trike could topple if the child also threw all their weight in the same direction. Probably not, but you worry as a parent don't you?!
All in all we're happy so far with the trike and the cost. Will certainly post again should anything change that
