I am so glad I was behind them and something just looked suspicious ...
on 7 July 2016
What a shame!! I still remember my excitement when I bought this trike for my son- his first birthday present. I even sold the idea to my husband saying it grows with the child and he can use it for 2-3 years at least!
Well we probably have used it 10 times in total- and no rugged areas these- nursery run, park and then we had winter do it was never brought out. Tried to use it now in May and the front wheel came apart as my dad was joyfully pushing around an equally joyful toddler down the road. I am so glad I was behind them and something just looked suspicious that I leapt in time before the front wheel buckled and prevented my toddler ramming his face to the bar handle. My dad also could have lost his balance because he suddenly realised the trike was getting wobbly!!
We still didn't give up on it and tried to fix the wheel. My dad, myself and now my husband hv all tried- result a broken trike in our back garden and it's heartbreaking when my toddler runs up to me- points to his beloved trike and says- bike broken? Fix it?
I am so angry first at the callousness of the fit and then to claim it will last years!! But every growing child needs a bike/ trike. His 2nd birthday is soon approaching and I think the present again will have to be a trike - but hopefully this time a bike that lasts and won't cost us his face or our limbs!! 😒😒 so dissappointed!!
I have no great faith in any returns or the seller making good but I just Thot as a parent I am morally obliged to warn other parents. 2 stars for the bright colours and the joy my son felt when he was on it!
