Every parent wants to give their child the best upbringing possible. They want to shower them with love, presents, and affection, while also teaching them lifelong rules that they can carry into adulthood. One of the best experiences a parent can have with a child is teaching them how to ride a bike. This is something almost every child wants to learn and every adult is eager to help with. To get them prepared for riding an actual two-wheeler bike, you should start them young and look at buying a trike for kids.There are so many trikes for kids available online and in stores today that it can be a difficult task to know which one to buy, especially if you have no previous experience with buying one. I have created a list of some of the best trikes for kids and have included my own personal thoughts on each one. It is my hope that this list will point you in the right direction to make the best purchase, and that most of all, your child will love their new trike that is a lot of fun, but also very safe.I think all trikes for kids listed below are fantastic options for purchasing as they are all strong, durable, safe, and most of all affordable.

Best Kids Trikes


The 4-In-1 Stroll ‘NTrike

For Ages: 9 months to 5 years

This trike is the best seller on Amazon. It is one of the most expensive ones on this list, but that is because the bike can grow with your child. It can start out as an infant tricycle, then becomes a steering trike, then a learn-to-ride trike, and then a classic tricycle. You get the best bang for your buck here because you won’t have to buy a new one every year they get older. It also is equipped with numerous safety features such as the secure 3-point harness and a high back seat for comfort. There is also a safety tray to hold a cup, and to also make sure your infant does not fall out. It comes with a canopy that can be removed to protect your infant from sunlight, and has a push handle so you can determine how fast they are going or push them around yourself.


Fisher-Price Harley-Davidson Tough Trike

It has been styled to look like a Harley-Davidson motorcycle that any young kid will love. It is powered by big foot pedals, perfectly designed for little kids. The tires are both rugged and durable, and the wheelbase is strong for added safety and protection. There is also a storage compartment under the seat for an added fun secret for your child.

Another trike for kids from Fisher-Price, this trike features thick handles and pedals to make a really easy ride, especially for a little one. It has a grow-with-me feature that allows you to adjust the seat and pedals as they get bigger and older. The pedal blocks can be removed so you can easily adjust the entire trike.


The Madd Gear Mini Drift Trike

This is more of an elite-looking trike on my list. It is equipped with a front BMX-style brake so you can both stop and spin on the bike. This trike is designed for older riders 5 years, and up that weigh a max of 150 lbs. The front tire is 16”, and the seat can be adjusted depending on size. This is a pricier option on the list and it is made from high tensile steel so that it will last a long time.


The Fisher-Price Grow With Me Trike (Purple and Pink Edition)


This Grow With Me Model is the same as the one above, but the color scheme is different and more female-oriented. This is the one my daughter has and she absolutely loves it.


The Schwinn Roadster 12 Inch Trike- Blue


This trike for kids is also a bit more expensive and unique looking. It has a blue finish and the seat is very low to prevent any tip overs. The handlebars are made from chrome and come completed with long tassels and a bell. The seat is fully adjustable, and the entire trike has been made from heavy duty steel.


The Vilano 3 in 1 Tricycle and Learn to Ride 

The Vilano 3 in 1 Tricycle and Learn to Ride Trike for toddlers for boys and girls

This is another unique looking trike on the list. It has a wraparound handle bar that is padded for additional safety. The handles steer the front wheel and there is a foot rest in case they just want to cruise. This also comes with a removable canopy if you want to protect them from the sun. The frame is made from high-tensile steel. This trike comes in different colors for girls in pink and for boys in red or blue. 


The Schwinn Easy Steer Tricycle-White


This trike for kids is also a bit more expensive and unique looking. It has a blue finish and the seat is very low to prevent any tip overs.

Radio Flyer Classic Red Ride On Tricycle


This trike is incredibly well made and it is the 1st seller in the Kids' Pedal Cars category on Amazon.com. Sturdy and robust, this trike is ideal for toddlers (2 to 3 years old). It comes with a storage bin for the kids to put in their toys. Its price is really good considering the type of product you will be buying. It lasts longer than other trikes and it can be used by the kids brothers when they grow up. 


Little Tikes Perfect Fit 4-in-1 Trike


For Ages: 9 months to 5 years

This trike made by little tikes is a great alternative to the The 4-In-1 Stroll ‘N’ Trike from Radio Flyer. It is great if you want a trike that will last longer since you can start to use it when your kid is just 9 months until your kid starts to ride the bicycle. It is one of the best sellers on amazon because its price is reasonable for the quality of the product. Supports a kid of  50 lbs weight and it is feature rich: comes with a tray to carry your drinks and snacks, a storage bucket,  a 5-point seat belt harness, and a Protective safety bar. Overall, it is a really good choice if you are looking for a 4-in-1 trike and you are on a budget. It comes in blue, pink and teal and amazon ratings indicate that customers are pleased with it.
