My First Trike


Weeeeeee! Jack has been having super-duper fun on his new (old) Raleigh trike! My grandparents had this little beaut hidden away in their attic, and this lucky boy has claimed it. I don't know how old it is, but I have found the exact same trike here, and it seems to be displayed in a museum! There are beautiful illustrations of frogs on the seat and the recognisable Raleigh logo on the front. We're so chuffed with it. Having said this, it is causing a few problems. Jack can't yet pedal it himself, so he gets frustrated if we stop pushing. My Nan came up with the temporary solution of attaching some string and pulling him around yesterday. I've added a little photo below.

  8. Okay so if a trike with plastic wheels is in a museum? That makes me really old! Lol.

    Seriously, he reminds me of my oldest when he first set his toushie on a four-wheeled vehicle. All was right with the world!

    So cute! Thank you for sharing at Your Sunday Best. :)

  10. What a great trike. I love the background on the first picture - looks like you could change it to make him be riding his trike anywhere.
