we have a little 'first' tricycle (which we've had for years, since the bigger kids were little) that maya has been riding for a long time now. it's a very well made little trike (made in sweden) and it has lasted beautifully through all of the children (and even their cousins, as well). maya has always adored this little yellow and red tricycle and ridden it practically every day. but now that she is 5 (and quite tall for her age), she was beginning to outgrow it...
so now that spring is here, maya's 'tita' (her grandmother) just bought this beautiful and big new tricycle for her! another extremely well made tricycle (this one from winther, in denmark) for 4-8 year olds. this is the viking 'big trike' and can be coupled with any of their little trailer attachments for even more play value (what fun!).
and as you can imagine...she is in heaven!
happy riding, everyone!
