If you have a curious little toddler on your hands, I have a great toy for you! The Radio Flyer Fold 2 Go Tricycle is one of the best presents my daughter received for Christmas this year. Read my review of the Radio Flyer Fold 2 Go Trike below!
The Fold 2 Go tricycle by Radio Flyer is designed for smaller riders. While their classic tricycles are designed more for kids ages 3 and up, the Fold 2 Go trike is designed for toddlers 18 months and up. My daughter is 16 months and fits on this tricycle perfectly, while my 3.5 year old son can and does ride it often. He is a little cramped, so I wouldn’t go out of my way to get this specific trike for a child that old, but he has no issues pedaling around the kitchen 🙂
The tricycle comes fully assembled, which is great! Building kid gear is not up on my list of favorite things to do. The seat is adjustable, so it will grow with your child.
As the name says, the tricycle folds for portability and storage. While I don’t feel like it takes up that much space to begin with, and will probably not use this feature often, it is a nice detail. I can see this coming in handy if you’re taking the trike in the car.
Why We Love It
The bike itself is made of steel, so it is very sturdy and solid. The tires are “quiet ride” – which, if you have a toy that isn’t designed with quiet tires (I’m looking at you, push car), you know how important this feature is! It also has a plastic covered storage container in the back. It doesn’t really serve much purpose, I suppose, but both of my kids find such joy in hiding little trinkets in it!
The trike has a low center of gravity, which makes it more stable and less likely to tip. My son struggled pedaling a tricycle at school, and has mastered it on this particular tricycle at home. I believe this is mainly in part due to the low center of gravity – it is easier to pedal and maneuver!
My daughter is 16 months old and is still on the young side in terms of this, so understandably, she is not able to pedal independently. She does, though, hold on tight (there is no seat belt) and I am able to push the bike with the built in handle. It’s important to note the Fold 2 Go trike does not have a parent push handle. Pushing requires bending over to push the trike. Your lower back will feel this quickly.
The Radio Flyer Fold 2 Go Trike is currently $39.99 at Target and is available in red and pink.
