The Tour de France is in full swing, and whilst we may not be able to join in with the actual cycle race, we have been able to take our on tour with a little help from Little Tikes.
Our own little tour took us around the northern canal system. As a man who loves a little history, I am amazed by the canal system we have on our doorstep. How it was made, how it worked and how significant it was to the area at the time. I can imagine what it must have been like.
The kids don’t share my passion for it yet despite my explanations of why we have it and why it’s important. However the definitely appreciate being outside, exploring, seeing the wildlife. So taking them on a proper tour in style and comfort in their Little Tikes trykes was a winner.
Edith was riding in the 4-in-1 Trike. This trike is designed to grow with your little one. For now Edith could just sit back, pop her feet on the footrest whilst we steered using the adjustable push handle. This is fantastic as both Sammi-Jo and I can push in comfort and ease by just adjusting the handle to meet our needs. And when the time comes we can take it off and let Edith do all the hard work. The sunshade keeps the sun off, whilst the 5 point seat harness keeps them safely sat on the seat. The handy tray ment we could dump all the bits and bobs we had in the tray and keep my back bagless.
Flo was touring in the perfect fit 4-in-1 Trike. An option for little ones from 9 months to 5 years, you can easily adjust the seating to ensure they are happy and comfy. There is the convenience of the steering handle if you need it for younger kids but for Flo she was able to drive by the power of her little legs. The non slip peddles also stopped her feet from sliding as she ferociously propelled herself along the paths.
Whilst we may not have taken in the sites of France, our local area was a brilliant place to explore and take a wander around the wonders of the canals. Made all the better by the horse that walked past and the Heron who snatched a fish as we enjoyed our tour.
So this summer with the kids off get yourself out into your local city and take a proper tour around. You never know what you might see or what fun you might have.
