Initially I was a bit daunted by all the parts. However, there was literally just 3 screws. (Required tools included) Everything else clicks together and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Actually only took around 10 minutes to put together.
The finished item looks fantastic. It's got a real quality feel. Doesn't look cheap at all. Really lovely material used and the finish on everything is very clean and looks luxurious
2. How did your child get along riding in the SmarTrike Recliner Infinity?
When I first showed him he looked curious. After giving it a thorough toddler inspection, (paying particular attention to the phone) I put him on it and strapped him in. And so began the screaming and writhing around! (He's at that awful "I'm not going to let you strap me into anything" stage) surprisingly the straps held him securely and comfortably! And after a minute he'd calmed down and actually seemed to be very happy to be in it! He's quite an Explorer as most 20 month olds tend to be, and enjoys walking everywhere now, so gets bored easily in the pushchair. This however kept him happy. I think the fact that he isnt enclosed in a pushchair being pushed makes him feel like he's in control. So much so infact that when we arrived at the park he didn't want to get out! So we ended up going for a longer walk instead!
3. What do you think of the accessories that come with the SmarTrike Recliner Infinity?
I love that this has a bag! It's pretty roomy too! You could easily pop to the shop to get your bread and milk with this! There's plenty of room for all your essentials too nappies, wipes, drink etc.
The cup holder is very handy. But I would like one for myself! The top bag is ideal for the things you need to keep easily accessible like your phone and keys. And again is fairly spacious. The little phone is also a nice feature. Ideal for those busy little hands. And I like the fact that it isn't very loud! Let's be honest... we all hate noisy toys!! But it is loud enough for them to hear.
The one thing I feel this lacks is a rain cover. Although the hood would help I'm sure.
The parent handle is very comfortable and can be used one handed. It has different height settings too. Which is useful and its easy to adjust. In general the trike I very smooth to steer (even on grass! I tried it!) The only issue I found was kerbs. It's a bit unsteady. And although the instructions do state not to use on steps, kerbs unfortunately are unavoidable. However, once you have a few goes it is easy enough to master. But there is room for improvement.
Definitely! My little boy loves it! So much so that he keeps getting on it indoors! The only thing I would say is that as a long term investment it would be better to purchase this at 10-12 months in order to make full use of all its wonderful features!

When I first received the smart Trike I was very impressed with the Quality and construction it looked very stable.It took less than 15 minute to build.The multi functional Modes allows the stroller to turn from stroller to Trike with a click of a button.perfect for all stages. The seatbelt provides safety.Lincoln enjoyed riding on the smart Trike I reclined the seat he even had a nap on the way.It has easy steering with the lightest touch the accessories on the Trike are brilliant It has active play and discovery.A play musical phone, Lincoln loved it.also has a bottle holder. the rucksack is brilliant for shopping . While the smaller zipped pocket at the top is very good for putting your mobile Keys etc . The handle is excellent it has adjustable hieght. I would recommend this to a friend who has a child of the same age .It has some great features,like fast click technology and easy instructions to follow. Lincoln and I tested the Triketoday.We both loved it. Lincoln loved going around the shops on the Trike .he had a lovely smile on his face and did not get board.It also has a 3 year guarantee .(all in all I think the smart Trike 5-1 is really Clever. Thanks for reading.

My first impressions were great, the box it was delivered in wasn't too big and it was packaged well. Well I opened the box and saw how many pieces there were to put together it did look a bit daunting. The instructions however did look easy to follow. All together it took me about half an hour to put the trike together from start to finish as most things just clicked in to place and it was only the seat that needed to be screwed on and the basket which were easy enough to do and all the tools needed were included in the box. Once it was all put together I loved it, the quality was great and it had lots of little features.
My daughter was very excited when she first saw the SmarTrike, the first thing she did was pick up the phone and started talking on it. My daughter is quite tall for her age so she had to rest her feet on the pedals at the front. I love how I could stop the pedals moving so my daughter could easily rest her feet. She looked very comfortable and was easy fastening her in. Because she is 2 we didn't have the safety bar fitted as it wasn't needed.
I did find when we were out and about on the Trike if my daughter took her feet off the pedals it made the steering go a little manic but she is very forward for her age at understanding and talking and as soon as I asked her to put her feet back on the pedal she did, so it's not a big deal and didn't cause any problems. I think she is going to have lots of fun learning to pedal the trike herself.
I absolutely love the parent pouch, great to keep my phone and keys in when we are just popping to the park or to the shop. I also love the big bag that attaches to the bag as it is very spacious and therefore fits in plenty of items. This is great for days when we are going that little bit further as I will be able to fill the bag with items for my daughter that I would usually have in her baby changing bag. My daughter loved the phone and as you can see from the pics she was enjoying having a chat with grandad. The drinks holder is also a fab feature as while we were out my daughter could reach the drink herself and put it back without us having to stop for me to get it for her.
The touch steering made it very easy to handle and steer and found this a great feature. We have had access to a different make and model and found the steering on that heavier and harder so the steering on the SmarTrike Infinity was definitely better. I liked how you can change the height and how easy it is to change.
Yes I would definitely recommend the SmarTrike Recliner Infinity to other parents with a child at the age of 2. My daughter is at the age where she isn't quite able to pedal the trike herself so will be great to take her out for walks on it where I am still in control. I love that she has something to learn to pedal on. I will occasionally change the pedals to the function where they turn while I am pushing so she understands the motion the pedals need to go in order for her move the Trike by herself.
I love that it has the hood for when the weather is warm or even if we get caught out in the rain, this will provide some shelter for my daughter. The reclining seat is a great addition as my daughter still likes a nap in the afternoon so I don't have to worry if she is feeling tired when we are out with the SmarTrike.
All in all a very good SmarTrike and definitely worth the retailed price. Thank you for the opportunity to test and review this. I have one happy little girl xx

when i first got the smart trike recliner infinity i thought it looked very nice,once i opened the box i found it very easy to set up,it only took me a few minutes and im normally not very good setting things up,the style and design of it was very nice,i love the colours.
My granddaughter ella couldnt wait to get in it and try it out,she absolutely loves it,she especialy loves the little phone (so does her mum as its a great distraction piece when out shopping)i like the fact that it has a bag attached ,which you can easily put everything you need for a day out in there,also the little bag in the handle was very handy for my keys etc.ella loves trying to pedal it herself and when she gets tired and needs a nap you can just recline the seat which is a fab idea.I also love the bottle or cup holder,no more rumaging in bags for it,she can just get it herself which is brilliant and very helpful.also the hood is great if its a hot day or theres a few spots of rain,it could benefit by having a rain cover but i think it would probably make it hard work to steer.
I found the handle for adults a little stiff as i was fighting for control with ella when turning corners but other than that it was fine.
Myself my daughter and ella would definitely recommend the smart trike recliner infinity as its well made ,very stylish and modern,easy to set up ,the instuctions were very easy to understand,easy to control once you get the hang of it,great on little bumps (the older model which my daughter has for my grandson nearly tips over if you catch a bump on the path),i also like that you have the option of having the pedals working or not which is quite helpful if your child is not old enough to pedal herself.
My grandaughter ella is 18 months old ,i think this product is better for a child from the age of maybe 16 months to 3 or 4 years .
