The Joovy Tricycoo is a tricycle for children as young as 18 months. The Tricycoo is the perfect way to introduce your child to balance and coordination, one step at a time. Your child will love the adventure of piloting their very first vehicle and parents love that they are in control while their child masters each stage of learning. The concept of the Tricycoo is simple your child does not need to steer, pedal or balance on their own. They simply enjoy the fun and independence of their first tricycle while you guide them with the parent push handle (removable). When engaged, the parent push handle overrides the steering on the Tricycoo. It has 4 positions and is adjustable from 32.5 to 38 high. While your child is getting used to the idea of balancing and holding on to the handlebars, the front wheel pedals can be unlocked; this allows the pedals to spin freely without force and go without the need to pedal. The removable baby surround arms safely enclose your child on the seat and the fold down footrest gives more stability to the child when riding. This gives them confidence and support while they perfect their balancing. The Joovy Tricycoo is first class all the way unlike most tricycles with blow molded wheels, the Tricycoo sports injection molded wheels with urethane treads. Parents love these wheels because they roll quietly on most floors. For additional fun, the Tricycoo is equipped with a bell on the handlebar and a large rear basket for take along play. The Tricycoo frame is constructed of steel and it supports a child up to 44 pounds. When your child masters the first phase on the Tricycoo, you ll be ready to remove the parent push handle, baby surround arms and fold up the footrest. The front wheel pedals can be locked to allow the child to pedal using their own power. Now you can smile and watch as your child pilots their Tricycoo all by themselves. Assembly is required.
