Baby's New Ride (2-in-1 Tricycle)

Like I mentioned in my previous post, we went out and got baby J a new ride.

I'd love to say that we had gone on and splurged on one of these super cool trikes, which would have made anyone swoon.

But considering we were living on one person's income to feed five people at our household, we ended up buying this trike (seen below) which pretty much serves the same function but looks much less appealing.

Initially I had wanted to buy the typical car version with parent handles, but it was just too unstable and couldn't take my baby's weight. Then the sales lady introduced this trike to us.

I personally like this very much. It is easy for me to steer it in the direction I want and is very stable. The side bars keep baby J safe from tipping over and the foot rest can support her entire weight when she stands. It also has two handles at the back for an older sibling or cousin to push the younger one. As with all 2-in-1s or 3-in-1s, everything can be taken out as your baby grows, which makes it very value for money. FYI, the 3-in-1 is a stroller / parent-controlled trike / trike. The 2-in-1 doesn't have the stroller function.

"Yay mummy!"

There are only two disadvantages of this product. One, there seems to be something wrong with the battery compartment so although it is supposed to play music, no sound comes out of it. And two, the parent handle if not screwed on tightly may shift as you turn, making it hard to steer.

Generally still love it for its simple functionality. Both baby J and I give this product 2 thumbs up =)

UPDATE: Recently a relative pointed out to us that we didn't put enough batteries into the compartment and so it does play music after all. Only the music is kinda noisy plus the red lights flashing out of the teddy's eyes makes it kinda scary so we hardly play the music anyway.
