We recently bought Sonny a preloved Toddlebike from a friend; it looked to me to be the perfect answer to my out and about prayers. You see, Sonny resists his pushchair. He no longer enjoys being within its confines, preferring instead to walk. Yet he is not quite ready for this step. Not only is he still only two, therefore tires quickly, but he often wants to run ahead, seemingly unaware of the dangers of the road, despite my constant reminders. He is unwilling to hold my hand, always telling me "I want to walk by myself!".
In short, he wants to be a big boy but lacks the maturity and understanding to follow his desire through. Which is where the Toddlebike comes in. This lightweight, all-terrain product allows Sonny to experience the freedom he craves whilst keeping him within arm's reach. The extra activity it affords him can only be a good thing as well.
Toddlebike looks to be a real asset. It is still early days for us and we have only really used the bike in the garden thus far, but I am keen to venture further afield with it. The real bonus for me, as a non-driving parent, is that I can, if necessary, pop it on the pushchair without a problem. This also negates the need to end our buggy days completely...for a little while longer, at least.
Sonny and I are both looking forward to more Toddlebike adventures; on top of being a very handy bike from my perspective, it is a lot of fun for him, even allowing him to race Jasmine. It looks as though we have finally found him a product that will help him keep up with his ever-active sister!
