The lovely folk at smarTrike have recently launched a marvellous new campaign called #smartDiscoveries, where they are encouraging parents to celebrate their little ones’ daily discoveries. It could be as small (but joyous) as a finding a feather, the discovery of the first autumnal conker, or even an experience of feeding the ducks for the first time.
Life through our children’s eyes is a magical thing, and I always find myself amazed by how wondrous both children find the world we live in.
We were sent an Explorers 5-in-1 trike for H-Bear to ride in for his #smartDiscoveries, and we took it down to Sussex with us during one of our recent stays so he could see the world from a different perspective than just in his pushchair.
He absolutely LOVED the trike, and every time we stopped he would wave, wiggle and say “Go!” until we went again!
The trike is perfectly designed for adventures. It has a fantastic canopy to protect from the sun. It also has a huge bag at the back of the trike which is another great feature! The bag can hold all manner of things from jumpers and coats, to extra water bottles (the mini adventurer has their own at the front of the trike!) and picnic goodies, and the handy little zip pocket is ideal for your phone, purse and keys.
It’s also a fab one-handed steer, so brilliant if you’re adventuring with more than one child and need a spare hand for hand-holding… or just if you need coffee to help your adventure along!
I think H-Bear’s most loved thing about our #smartDiscoveries adventures so far have been that he’s at the same height as dogs walking past. He’s an animal lover – with dogs being his favourite (in fact, I have a sneaking suspicion he might be part puppy as he loves to play fetch!), so any way to be nearer to a pooch is a winner.
I’ve made a little video about our trip to the park, which was a particular favourite with the children!
You can join in with the #smartDiscoveries campaign on Instagram by tagging your little person exploring and discovering in their smarTrike.
The Explorers 5-in-1 trike retails at £120, and can be purchased from a number of different retailers.
