Little Tikes Fold ‘n’ Go 5-in-1 Trike Review

With Spring in the air and Summer just around the corner we are glad to be getting outside and embracing the warmer weather. Since Piglet is not walking yet we need to always have a carrier or pram with us. the downside of that is that the pram can be pretty bulky and take up a lot of space in the car – which doesn’t leave us much in the way of space for anything else.

The opportunity arose for us to try out the Little Tikes Fold ‘n’ Go 5-in-1 Trike. Since they’re new I didn’t really know what to expect, but I was keen to give anything a try that can fold up and give us a little more room!

Little Tikes Fold 'n' Go 5-in-1 Trike | We have been trying a new trike. Suitable from baby through toddler and right up to preschoolers it seems to have something for everyone. Sturdy and reliable - we love it! http://oddhogg.com

Features

There are lots of trikes for babies and toddlers on the market, so clearly the Fold ‘n’ Go was going to have to do something special in order to stand out. It does of course fold for transport, but what else?

  • Extended age range – Unlike your standard baby trike, this one is suitable from 9 months to 5 years old. As far as value for money goes that ticks all the boxes for me! It is great to know that it will grow with Piglet and we’ll get lots of use out of it.
  • Reclining Seat – Some babies, like Piglet, are slower to sit up. The seat reclines to make for a safer and more comfortable ride for them from a younger age.
  • Three Point Harness – Just gives that peace of mind.
  • Adjustable & removable parent handle – As they grow the need to push along the trike will disappear, so it is possible to complete remove the handle. This lets them take off without the handle behind them.
  • Foldable Pedals – Since Piglet doesn’t need pedals at the moment they fold into the front wheel to stop them spinning and generally getting in the way.

Set-Up

I was aware that Little Tikes products often need quite a bit of work to get them built and so I was going to wait until Piglet was having his nap, but then he was not keen on that idea. And who could say no to this face?!

I had slight regret once he started chewing on footrests and like as he really wasn’t the best helper. The trike came in quite a few parts and it was a little daunting – even with an engineering degree! The instructions were clear though and it was soon ready to go.

Out And About

I was surprised by how much Piglet liked the trike straight away. He had a big smile on his face and loved it. I don’t know if it’s because it’s lower to the ground than his pram perhaps, but whatever it is he’s a fan.

The parent handle takes a little getting used to, but does steer quite well. It is perhaps a little on the short side to make it comfortable for JHogg to push, but I imagine it’s sign is dictated by the fact it is foldable.

Below is a short video of one of our trips to a local park. You can see how easily it fits into the back of our car and how easy it was to push around. When we were there we were even stopped by someone and asked about it – so it clearly attracts some attention!

It took a little while to get the hang of folding it up and we had to use the instructions the first few times. As with all things – it’s easy once you know how!

Verdict

I was a little skeptical of trikes for a toddler that can’t walk, never mind cycle, but I am a convert. It is well made and clearly is built to last. With an RRP of £129.99 it is at the higher end of the market, but the extended age suitability justifies that. The longevity is there and I can see Piglet getting use out of it for years to come.

    What a fabulous review and awesome video. Your little man looks like he’s having a great time. Will definitely go take a look at these!
    Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you. Piglet definitely enjoys his trips in it

    It looks great, I’m also quite a skeptic when it comes to babies and trikes but he’s having a whale of a time! I love the fact that it adapts as they grow (fold in pedals etc), definitely makes it more tempting to invest a little more knowing that even if he hates it now, it can last a good few years and get plenty more use! Loved the video, folding does look like a bit of an art form but it’s nice to see how small it goes! Great for storing out of the way!

      I think it’s adaptability is fab – plenty room for growth

    I think I need to invest – I’ve bought so many cheap trikes that don’t last! This will last ages too by the looks of it! X

    We’ve got a trike but it doesn’t get used much as it doesn’t fit in the car very easily. This one looks great and it’s fab that it folds up too.

      I think the fact that it folds so well is a big game changer!

    Love the video! I like the way it lasts for so long so you aren’t having to constantly replace it for a bigger bike 🙂 lots of good features too x

      It is suitable for up to age 5 so they’re not all too old yet!

    I love that the trike folds away also the hood looks like it gives good coverage from the sun. We have a smart trike and to be honest it was pretty pants, poor steering no real shade from the sun. We didn’t use it much, it currently sat out in my garden being eaten by squirrels 🙂

    These look fab! Erin loved her trike when she was younger but the only problem was we always struggled to take it anywhere we needed to drive to as it was so big! This is the perfect solution and great you can pop it in to the boot! We will be getting another trike when Neve is older so will definitely check these out! Love the video! 👍

    It looks like a great, sturdy trike and he looks so happy in it too. I’m actually looking to get a trike for my youngest so I’ll definitely look for this one. Great review and lovely video 🙂

    What a fantastic idea to have it fold up, ours is so big it doesn’t fit well in the article so we have to use it at home only. Good to know about the steering to, I struggle with ours!

    Great review! We had a similar little tykes trike for my son when he was younger and he absolutely loved it. It’s always nice to have a different option to the pushchair and the trike is a bit more exciting. I love the fact that this one has a sunshade too.

    Fantastic review. I wasn’t sure whether to get one as like you say ya at the higher end of the price market and money is tight while we are saving for our own home but your review has convinced me otherwise. Piglet looks like he’s having so much fun!

    This trike sounds brilliant. It’s nice to have found something so easy to use that’s also practical and brings monkey joy! Sounds like a winner to me!

    I’ve not seen one that folds up before, this is a massive plus in my book. For me I want to be able to take it to places and they never normally fit in the boot, this is brilliant! They really do love them and I found as Alice got older and resisted the pushchair I could put her in the trike and she was happy. x

      That’s what I think will be a huge boost for us in the future – he can wander around a bit but also be popped in the trike to go bigger distances and won’t complain about it as it’s still fun

    What a fantastic and in-depth review and I am really impressed with this trike! I wish that I bought this for youngest, we went for a cheaper brand and I really regretted it because it fell apart within a year. You can tell that this is a far better trike and it would last for years too so really it is very good value for money.

    What a brilliant trike! I love that it will last and adapt as they grow. How have you found the storage? It seems quite compact


    1. // Reply

      It stores really well – it’s taking up no room at all in our garage

    When we were at this stage Little Tikes didn’t do trikes – this one looks great! I think Troy would have loved it! x

    That looks great, we still use our trike a lot at over 2.5 years old. Ours doesn’t fold though, so the fact that this does is a bonus.
