Safety features include a parking break, non-slip pedals, and a steering bar for parents. For convenience, a rear-basket holds belongings and a bottle holder carries drinks.
For parents who want a training tricycle their children can use through the toddler years, the Ready Set Go! Trike offers a three-step system to ease children into riding on their own. Kids will be thrilled to pedal and cruise, and parents will appreciate the control this trike allows them.
Phase One: Push and Stroll
The Push and Stroll phase is for children 10 months and up. At this stage, caregivers steer the trike using the adjustable five-position handle. Safety features include a high-backed seat with headrest, a safety bar, and a seat belt. Supportive footrests fold down to support your baby's feet, so he or she can become familiar with the feel of pedals.
Phase Two: Start to Roll
When children reach 15 months of age, they'll be ready for the Ready Set Go! Trike's Start to Roll phase. At this stage, caregivers can remove the trike's headrest and safety bar. While parents still control the movement of the toy, they can pull out the clutch to unlock the handles and give their child a chance to steer.
Phase Three: Pedal and Go
The Ready Set Go! Trike's final phase is for children 24 months and up. At the Pedal and Go stage, caregivers can detach the steering handle, fold up the footrests, and push in the clutch for a complete trike with non-slip pedals and rubber wheels. Then, parents can watch as their newly independent cycler joyrides like the big kids.
Safety Features for Peace of Mind
The Ready Set Go! Trike is designed with safety in mind. A removable safety bar surrounds your child at the first stage, providing reinforced support so your little one stays securely in the seat. Additionally, a harness-style seat belt holds your child firmly in place, preventing unwanted side-to-side movement.
A parking break is built into the back of the Ready Set Go! Trike, so parents can easily halt the toy with one foot. Non-slip rubber wheels and pedals maintain traction, so riders stay on course.
Finally, a detachable sun canopy helps shield your child from the sun and easily adjusts to your preferred angle.
Handle, Footrest, Basket, and Drink Holder for Convenience
During the first and second stages, parents and caregivers will appreciate the control that the trike's handle allows them. The five-position handle adjusts to your height, so you feel in complete control. For growing cyclists, a footrest folds down during the first phase, then folds up and out of the way for the second and third phases.
For added convenience, a tilting rear basket gives you a place to store belongings as you steer your child around the block. A drink holder at the front lets children bring their bottle or sippy cup along for the ride.
The Ready Set Go! Trike has several parts, but it is relatively quick to assemble if you follow the directions. The trike is easiest to put together if two people can help--that way, one person can hold up the trike to keep it from rolling after the wheels are attached.
Be sure to firmly insert the two back wheels until you hear a soft click. Also, apply some force to the footrest's release button--it can be a challenge to engage. A standard wrench and an Allen wrench are included, but you will also need a Phillips screwdriver to complete the assembly.
This trike measures 27 by 18-1/2 by 39 inches (L x W x H) to the top of the handle.

I totally thought that it this trike would be a piece of plastic garbage like so many other things out of China. I couldn't imagine how they could justify the price when Radio Flyer has nice metal construction trikes out there. Well, I'm eating my words. First of all, the bike is pretty sturdy. The wheels are wider than a lot of trikes. I've found that among a sampling of trikes, the Alex is as sturdy as a Fisher Price or Kettler (yes, this seems to run the price gamut)--and far more sturdy than a Radio Flyer.
I prefer Alex's upright seating position, however, which resembles the Kettler & Radio Flyer to Fisher-Price's slightly lower and leaned back seating. Since my daughter occasionally bikes in her skirt or dress, I get maybe another inch off the ground to keep the flying mud off. Of course, I'm still constantly tucking the skirt behind her into the seat anyways.
I was surprised that my daughter could still fit into the trike. She's by no means a small girl. Throughout her toddler years, she was at the 70-90 percentiles for height and weight.Read more ›
That being said, we found this toy to be a devil to put together, even for my mechanically minded husband. When asked about the educational value of this toy as part of the Amazon review, I wish I could have replied for us as parents...my husband certainly learned a great deal about the fiting together of parts.
This is a very durable, high quality set of materials, with an awkward design. Our son seemed to enjoy it well enough, but not so well that I would recommend this to other parents as a solution to eh problem of collecting multiple means of transportation/fun for their child as he/she matures.
Good try! Could be better.
I also love this trike. The adjustable height of the steering handle is awesome. I'm only 5' and my husband is 5'11" so it helps that it can be adjusted. The steering took a little practice to keep the trike going straight and turning but overall it's very easy and feels sturdy. The cup holder in the front is great for kids I just wish there was one for the parent as well.
