They say that the best gifts are memories. Well, we agree and we don’t mean just for your little one; you are just as important on this day! At smarTrike, our mission has always been to create lasting products that will grow with your baby from as little as 6 months to 3+ years; but wait, that’s not all, let us take care of keeping your little one busy and entertained while you can have some more ‘me time’ whether running around to get your errands finished or just watching your little one jump around while you take a breather. Now that would be a pretty memorable first birthday gift, right?!

I remember when I gave my son his first smart trike. I think maybe that day was more exciting for me. The days to years that followed became memories me and my son will cherish forever. The walks in the park, trips to the zoo and weekend getaways.

With every new stage of the trike, came a lot of excitement, and maybe a few tears of joy as well. It meant my little baby was becoming a not so little baby anymore. It was so much fun to watch him think that he is steering his smart trike all over town. I say ‘think’ because I still had complete control of the trike and steering at this stage. He must have been around 2 years old when I started switching control and giving him complete independence to cycle on his own.

He used to pretend that his red smarTrike was a fire truck racing down the street to put out the next fire. We both loved the trike so much that we must have taken it with us absolutely EVERYWHERE! And the best part of that, was that it was so easy, we just folded it up and in the trunk it went. That made for one happy triker!

Well guys, today my boy is 30 months old and is triking like a champ, while I am sitting back watching him as I reminisce of the days when he was only 9 months old and just beginning to explore his new push trike.

"We both loved the trike so much that we must have taken it with us absolutely EVERYWHERE!"

He would stare in awe at other passing trikes yelling ‘Its another fire truck mommy!’ or he would reach out for the handlebar and slowly figure out that it would one day steer his big red fire truck and eventually steer him into the world all on his own. Pretty soon I will be looking at the T Scooters and watching my sweet little boy grow into a handsome young kid!

T scooTer - 3 Wheel Scooter for Kids

Every kid wants one! And now your littlest one can also enjoy all the fun with the T1 toddler scooter for the first birthday. If you are feeling extra nice maybe grab a more advanced version of the scooter for your older children so they don’t all fight for who gets to ride first.

What makes smarTrike T Scooters extra special is the patented Tlock system. It is designed for easy balance and maneuverability, by allowing your child to easily switch from practice mode to full on freestyle mode once they are steady and ready. More features include a rear brake with springs, non-slip & super durable TPR rubber surface so your little won't slip so easily.

The T1 scooter is specially designed as a toddler scooter for younger toddlers. It features a seat that is a first step to learning how to ride a scooter, that’s pretty amazing if you ask me! This seat can be removed once your baby has the basics down and a telescopic handle bar to adjust, as your little one grows taller.

As I told you before, the T3 and T5 scooter is designed for older kids thanks to a slightly more advanced tilting mechanism capability and no seat. These scooters still offer the same great T-Lock System for easy balance and stability in earlier stages of learning to ride the Scooter.

The T5 Scooter has an aluminum frame and adjustable telescopic handle bar like the toddler scooter, which can be adjusted, as your kids grow taller.
