Waiste of money
It looks very sturdy but the push bar a very important part of the trike is very fragile. After 3 months of use the part that connect the push bar to the tricycle broke off. Customer service was awful from baby & toddler town shop. $180 Trike that I could only use a few times. Money straight to the bin. I would not buy from this place again.
- Verified purchase
The unassembled Eurotrike I bought online was not able to be assembled at all, the bolts were too short for the ill fitting seat, the back tandem seat was welded way off centre so unable to put front & back together. The wheels are only screwed to the axle with nuts which will easily come undone with use.
Very disappointed I bought for my Grandchildren for Xmas. I have not been able to get my payment refunded yet, I have only been offered a replacement but it is so badly make & unsafe for small kids.
Ok but disappointed it didn't last longer.
We researched buying a trike for our first son knowing it would get handed on to his younger siblings so decided to spend the extra $ & get this one thinking it was metal, not plastic like many others available, it got mixed reviews but seemed sturdier. I am disappointed to say that after having it for 2.5yrs & just as we we're about to hand it down to our 2nd son the front pedal mechanism (which is made of plastic) completely snapped & was going to cost $50 to replace, I wasn't prepared to spend 1/3 the cost of the bike on repair so it went in...the bin. The pedal mechanism never really worked that well anyway & even when we locked it so it wouldn't pedal it would always come unlocked & seemed to have a mind of it's own. We now find ourselves having to forkmout more $ for another bike for our 2nd son. Metal frame. Still many plastic parts which broke down.
Appears to be great but don't be fooled, quality poor!
So dissappointed, only used a few times and front wheel frame snapped right off. The frame should not be the part snapping on a good quality bike as far as I'm concerned. My son literally ride on it three times and then this happened. The frame is metal not plastic!
Frame clearly not soldered well as frame snapped
Well made, very appealing
This trike is so well made being it is metal and not plastic. Because of this and its soft rubber wheels, it is very sturdy and less noisy than its plastic counterparts. I have not owned a trike with a parent handle that navigates, but I think it is easy to use because its sturdy and padded. I am told by parents who own a trike that has a parent handle that navigates, that it is fiddly and troublesome to keep on a straight path. So perhaps Eurotrike thought this was the better of the two options. It is also a very appealing trike with its vibra...nt colours. My 10 month old son loves it. I feel it was worth the money. Well made, nice colours, rubber wheels are very quiet. If I had to say one thing it would be the pedals. When you disengage them they still rotate, they stop if your little one puts their foot on them. It would be better if they just stayed still.
This is an investment that will definitely be worth the money in the end. A very sturdy bike that will last for years. Can be used for a young toddler and then for several years after that.
A very sturdy and good quality trike that is just perfect for a toddler as you can put them in it and take them around the house or backyard. Then they can move to riding themselves and you can take the parent steering handle away.
This trike does cost a bit more than other toddler bikes but it is worth it as it is such good quality. Build to last. It is a bit hard to put together though.
Hard for parent steering and difficult for toddler to peddle.
Looks great but doesn't live up to expectations. The parent handle doesn't allow for easy manouvering of bike and you need to lift front wheel off ground to actually be able to steer. The pedals are very difficult for littlies to use, however the brake isn't and they then add to the steering difficulty by putting the brake on whilst you are pushing! Kids did love being pushed on the trike but it wasn't so fun for the parent pushing.
The three point harness is good and kids do enjoy being pushed along. However there must be a better parent steering system out there.
Expensive, the lock function still allows for movement which makes parent steering virtually non-existant.
We bought this trike for our one year old at Christmas and while he is still a bit too small to be able to ride it himself it is very easy to pop him on, strap him up and take him for a little ride around the house. While it was a bit more expensive than many other trikes on the market, I did a lot of research before purchasing and this really was a very good quality bike that is built to last. It looks great and will last for many years. Great that you can also push them along.
Fantastic quality, looks great, worth it.
That it is very hard to put together - we ended up having to take it to a bike shop as the instructions were so bad.
Overall it’s a solid build, should last a while (not sure about the wheels?) but the finer parts (like the steering lock) are a bit fiddly. I would have expected a bit more attention to detail at the price, but that being said, I don’t regret buying it. Some of the "supermarket" options are far worse considering the price.
Our toddler loves it. Always runs up to it and climbs on (and expects us to take him for a walk...) One great feature is that you can expand the trike into a tandem for 2 kids.
The steering locks, but there is too much play i...
It's been a really good little trike, our son loves going for his rides on it. I would probably buy it again but I would like to see them improve the little problems outlined.
Our son has enjoyed many hours on this trike. you have some control over where they are going with the handle (which is reassuring).
It was a bit on the expensive side. The lack of steer function for the pusher is a little annoying, but you get used to it. One of the buckles is VERY stiff ad now we just dont use it. Our son is nearly 3 and still cant pedal it as it is quite stiff and heavy in design.
Not my smartest purchase. I wish I had put more research in before I bought it. Would now make sure trike had rubber wheels and a proper turning parent steering system.
Nice colours. Great when bubs is younger as seat and seatbelt very effective
Really tough on the parent - the 'parent steering' does not actually steer. You have to lift front wheel off the ground to turn. Noisy, hard plastic wheels. REALLY difficult to manouvre as bubs gets heavier and over rough ground. Brake becomes a great trick for bubs while you are trying to push. Peddles are difficult for my two year old to operate.
Overall this is a great little trike, only let down by the adult steering handle as it wobbles from side to side and makes steering very difficult with the trike veering off from side to side. This is compounded when your child starts to try and steer the trike as well. Would also be a welcome improvement if the tyres were rubber so as to reduce the noise. Having said that, the retractable footrests and lockable handlebars were a huge help in teaching our child to ride. This trike is strong and the safety harness provides additional security for the child.
Able to control where your child is riding
The handle is wobbly and makes the trike difficult to push
Tyres are hard plastic, not rubber, so very noisy on concrete
Questions & Answers
I have built this for my Granddaughter, or tried too I cannot get the front wheel and handlebars to stay in or lock in place so too the eye it looks correct but try and pick it up and the wheel column all falls apart handlebars in hand wheel fell out!! ugh.Please help.
Hi Lizzie, would love to be able to help but we actually bought ours assembled. Is there a manual that came with bike or could you contact Eurotrike to find out or alternatively I would take it to a bike shop and they would be able to help you. Best of luck!
