A few weeks ago we were asked if Lottie would like to take the Fisher Price Charisma Trike for a spin and share our thoughts on it with my readers. With Lottie getting to that age where she doesn’t like the pushchair very much anymore I thought it would be a great alternative for her so I was super excited to get it up and running when it arrived.
The trike was quite easy to assemble – I must admit I hate making these sorts of things and the instructions could of done with some writing to make it a little easier but I got there in the end with a little help from the lovely Alice.
I love the bright vibrant colours on the trike they look great, we received the green trike but it is also available in a hot pink.
The Charisma Trike is a unique in that it’s a 3 in 1 tricycle designed for use from 10 months and then will grow with the child in the three different stages.
Stage 1: At 10 months baby sits safely in the high-backed reclining seat and uses the foot rest.
Stage 2: At 24 months it becomes a training trike – kids learn to pedal.
Stage 3: At 30 months, remove parent handle, close the safety clutch and it becomes an independent trike that kids pedal by themselves.
Lottie is coming up to 2 in February but as she is a little dot she’s still a long way off reaching the pedals which is a shame as it would be nice for her to start getting used to using them.
Although this trike was meant to be for Lottie, Bella has been using it loads she loves it and in stage 3 it would be perfect for her.
Lottie saw a cat and it telling me all about it incase your wandering what that face is all about!
I love the little bag on the back of the trike, it’s so handy for me if we are just nipping down to the shop or dropping the girls at school.
I had a different trike for Bella years ago and it was so stiff I never used it as it drove me mad. Whereas the Charisma Trike has super light steering which makes it more like you’re pushing a stroller. Another handy function is the unique navigator button on the mudguard which allows you to switch from parent steering to child ride-control, the built-in suspension also ensures a smooth and comfy ride for the little ones.
Over all I have been really pleasantly surprised with this trike, having never been a fan of them this certainly has changed my mind and we have been using it loads!
