This summer VTech shared with us their grand plan to help parents and carers get their little people out doors to celebrate the launch of the new VTech 5 in 1 Stroll and Grow Trike!
Suitable for 9months – 6 years, the trike grows with the child as they master each new stage thanks to a waterproof electronic activity panel which includes four individual modes of play.
We were asked to share with you a special place in our local area in Nottinghamshire that would be ideal for trike time to help get our little trike riders out in the fresh air.
Being based in Nottinghamshire we have some amazing areas to explore but for this journey we needed somewhere with good tarmaced paths so decided to head to a nearby park.
Arnot Hill Park is located in Arnold which is not to far from us and packed with shops all the amenities a family would need.
Tucked away is Arnot Hill Park, on the doorstep to the local council offices and with a registry office on the park too it’s a hive of activity there. Add in the rose garden, duck pond, green open spaces, children’s park and a little outdoor shop that serves drinks, ice creams and sandwiches and it is like a little oasis.
In order to make sure that this in fact would make for a great VTech 5 in 1 Stroll and Grow Trike route we obviously set about testing it!
Jacob loves his trike but is between stages and although we wanted to remove the baby accessories and allow him to start getting a feel for the pedals he is in fact a menace so we have taken off the little guy stuff but kept on the pedal guard to ensure we can get out and about safely and will try again to remove it in a few more weeks when he gets the gist of what trikes are all about.
The trike has the option of fixed front wheels or swivel and depending upon which terrain you are on you may want to alter these. We also found that locking the large drifting wheels helped over more uneven ground. Jacob loved his play control panel and knowing its waterproof is great so we can go out and not stress too much if we get a little shower like we so commonly do here in the UK.
The trike currently retails at £109.99 and is a great investment for a child with the ability to keep using it up to the age of 5-6 years.
We will be making the most of flat ground and family time at a lovely little park in Nottingham that you are welcome to visit if you are in the area too …
