Getting Out and About with smarTrike Recliner Infinity

Please note this post includes affiliate links

We were recently asked to take part in the #smartdiscoveries campaign and take a look at the smarTrike Recliner Infinity and over the last couple of weeks (in-between the chicken pox!) we have been making the most of the better weather. It really is SO much easier to get up and out when the sun is shining. The older two are getting better and better on their balance bikes, although Mr D is rapidly outgrowing his bike (we really do need to improve his confidence on a pedal bike).

I love seeing the children increase their confidence on their bikes and Mr H has enjoyed being able to get in on the act with his very own 5-in-1 Recliner Infinity from smarTrike. I’ve never used a smarTrike before with the other two, but know that they are hugely popular and we have been thrilled to be part of the #smartdiscoveries campaign.

The smarTrike is super easy to push around as it supports ‘touch steering’. This means it steers like a pushchair and it’s actually really easy to get used to. The smarTrike is also really light which makes it easy to push and manoeuvre around. Mr H certainly enjoys using it – take a look at the video of him as we wandered our local park – he loves peering out and waving at the people we pass and the things we see.

I love the idea that this bike can grow as H grows; eventually turning into a trike that he can pedal. The trike is really well designed and sturdy. The handle is easy to remove so you can pop the smarTrike into the car which makes taking it about and about easy – it is much lighter than our pushchair so it’s easier for me to use the smarTrike when we are out. There are also two handy storage bags – a small one at the top of the handle which is perfect for storing keys, purse and phone and a larger storage bag which is more than large enough to store nappies, drinks and snacks. It fastens easily to the bottom half of the smarTrike and matches the materials used on the padded seat and sun hood of the smarTrike. The seat features a three-point harness and also reclines for sleepy children, although Mr H has yet to fall asleep in his smarTrike – why would he when there is so much he can see and explore!

I’m really impressed with the smarTrike Recliner Infinity and it’s great for me to be able to take all three children out on bikes; Mr H is noticeably more chatty on the smarTrike than he is in the pushchair and he shouts after his siblings as they race past on their bikes; squealing and kicking as we catch up with them.

I look forward to Mr H growing and seeing how our smarTrike grows with him – I am sure it won’t be too long until he is peddling away down the road after his older brother and sister.

We were sent a smarTrike Recliner Infinity in exchange for this review. All images, words and opinions are my own.

    This looks seriously impressive! We debated getting one for our daughter’s first birthday, but didn’t end up in the end. Not sure why! She’s two now and would love the more independent aspects of the Smartrike 🙂

    Aww, this sounds brilliant! It looks lovely, too. I also like the fact it grows as the child grows, too! What a brilliant idea. The storage bags look handy. Really love the colour. xx

    This sounds great, and something I’d have loved as a kid because I never learnt how to ride a bike. Most of the time it doesn’t bother me but sometimes I wish I had tried x

    This sounds really good! The fact that it grows as the child grows is very impressive.

    I love how light weight and easy the steering is and it is perfect for Mr H! He certainly seem happy and having lots of fun!

    I love the look of this and that it grows with them. It’s so nice! I think this would be perfect for my nephew! x

    I always wanted a trike like this for my kids but we just didn’t have the space to keep it as we already had a pushchair and stroller, if only our house was bigger!

    We love smartrikes. My littlest now uses the one her sister had but I have to say it’s a very old dated version now lol x

    I wish these had been around when my Joe was younger, they look so much fun.
