We have recently fallen in love with the Scuttlebug. When I first saw them I wasn’t too excited, the design snob in me couldn’t see past the cheesy face on the front but little by little they have won me over.
Scuttlebug is a foldable tricycle suitable for children aged 1+. Having seen many a tricycle ‘suitable from 12 months’ but impossible for a child of that age to use I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how completely accessible it is to toddlers. The splayed legs give a stable base and while the front wheel can be directed, it doesn’t turn so far that it causes an imbalance. The folding system is a quick lock and fold action which makes the trike practically flat – great for stowing under the pram.
Betsy started riding one at a local toddler group and without any help was racing around the hall. We borrowed it to try it out and about for a few days and it is the perfect ride-on for a toddler desperate to keep up with their scooting siblings. (You can see Betsy stylin a Scuttlebug over on my personal blog, Housewife Confidential today).
Despite myself I’m now on the hunt for one as they are too good to ignore.
