We are excited about the holiday season, gift giving and celebrating with friends and family is always wonderful but this year it is extra special. Our youngest one, Baby M is turning one year old just before Christmas! That means not only does she get Christmas presents but also a birthday party, cake and even more celebrations for her milestone birthday. 

We wanted to get her something fun and exciting for her first birthday like her very first Trike! I know, a trike at 12 months old? Actually you can get trikes for babies as young as six months with SmarTrike

When we were asked to take a look at the SmarTrike Zoo 3 in 1 Tricycle with touch steering we instantly thought this could make an excellent first trike for our littlest one. The perfect first birthday gift for her and it came in red, matching her stroller. 

The SmarTrike Zoo is a grow-with-me trike for young children aged 10 months to 3 years old! The Zoo converts into four different stages as babies develop and learn to be independent drivers.

Parent controlled trike - At 10 months old baby sits supported by the high padded back rest, seat belts and footrest. While baby can hold onto the handles and such, parents have full control over the trike with new touch steering technology. If you happen to be out on an extra sunny day baby is protected by the stylish UV sun protective canopy. There is a tipping basket on the back to put some light items with a cup holder and toy phone in the front for baby. Plus, we get a place to put our grown up things like keys, phone, sunglasses etc in the special parent bag. 

Parent guided Training Trike - At 15 months+ the seat back and canopy can be removed but baby is still protected by the safety bar while mom or dad can still steer and control the trike. The foot rest can be folded up, the pedals folded out and the handlebar clutch pushed in for little one to begin practicing for herself. The parent foot break comes in handy for this stage to help slow the little tyke down, they'll be eager to get riding!

Classic trike - At 24 months+ remove the parent handle and you have an independent trike your little one can ride all by themselves.

The SmarTrike Zoo has a full metal construction, the super swivel front wheel has built in suspension and shock absorbing rubber. Put it together in a snap, this ride-on does not require tools to be assembled either. We all know there's nothing worse than being excited about a new gift and have to fiddle with parts to get it together. SmarTrike has every area covered with the Zoo Tricycle. 

Although there is snow on the ground right now, I am certain Baby M is going to enjoy this so much come Spring. The SmarTrike Zoo tricycle is going to make our family outings even better with something stylish and fun for Baby M to ride besides her big red stroller. Now she has her very own first tricycle!
