For the last 2 years, both Ben and Daniel have used the Smart Trike 3-in-1. It was the perfect trike for both of them. All we needed to do was add some velcro straps to Ben's pedals so his feet would stay on the pedals and it was perfect.
But....they are now too big for these awesome trikes...and I am passing them along to a friend who has twin boys (one with CP).
So we've been struggling with trying to figure out what to do for this year. We'll likely get Daniel a regular bike with training wheels. He's actually a bit clumsy and uncoordinated, but I hope he'll be able to handle a real bike.
We were thinking of getting Ben a bigger trike and then adapting it. My cousin's husband is awesome at projects like this so we figured he could help us.
We also found this website that sells extra big training wheels. And thought about buying Ben a real bike and adapting it with these training wheels. We are even thinking of getting these for Daniel.
I then looked into the bike that E has over at A Life Less Ordinary. But I concluded that it would be too big for Ben this year.
And then, I stumbled across the Mobo Mini. It's the same company as the bike that E has, but they've changed their name. And the Mini is for 2 to 5 year olds. And I'm in LOVE. I want one NOW. But I don't think it's available yet. I even emailed the company to find out when it would be available. But they haven't gotten back to me. But this is what I want for Ben. It LOOKS PERFECT.
So I guess we wait. I so hope we can get this for Ben. We live on a court and I can just see the boys out there driving their new bikes this Spring.
I'll keep you posted!
