Q-play Trike Review

We chose a Q-play trike and here is why, fully reviewed.

When we thought about the future and cycling we decided a great first birthday present would be a trike (kindly bought by his Grandparents). This would allow us to push him then let him pedal when hes ready and steer after that.

Q-play Trike Rito

We visited Smyths, being the only children’s store left around here (what is that about?!) and there were clearly only a few players. Q Play had the largest range with an entry model (comfort), mid range (Rito) and top end (Prime). We went for the Rito, as we didn’t see the need for rear facing in the Prime but wanted the foldability and safety functions like brakes the Rito has over the comfort.

Q-play Rito Trike Review

The Q play Rito is light to lift, and easy to control. Munchkin is still in parent-led mode where we control everything and is safely secured by a 5-point harness. The whole unit folds (in a slightly complicated procedure, but once you’ve mastered it once its easy) and fits easily in the car boot. The original build process did have equally complicated procedure, with somewhat poor instructions, but we got there in the end with a bit of intellect.

In the future, the Rito switches to give Munchkin use of the non-slip pedals. Then when he’s ready for full control we can give over the steering. Finally all the parent control can be removed to form a complete trike.

Overall, well I’ll let the stars do the talking:

One year on…

Its still just as brilliant as day one. We still can’t reach the pedals, but know what they are ready for when we can, and we love to pretend to steer. The star ratings have not changed.

Daddy reviewed. Munchkin approved.

  1. This looks great. We have been looking into these for my youngest daughter. Cheers for the review buddy 👍.

    I know there used to be loads of stores didn’t there, toys r us been one of the biggest names.

    1. I definitely recommend it. I’d go for Prime for the younger ones for rear facing option but for over 1’s the Rito was the clear winner for us.

      Yeah i miss toys r us. It was brilliant.
