Kinderfeets Tiny Tot Trike guide
We’ve written this Kinderfeets Tiny Tot Trike guide to help you pick the best option for your little one by comparing the Tiny Tot and the Tiny Tot Plus in detail.
As parents, we strive to provide our little ones with the best opportunities for growth and development. The Kinderfeets Balance Bike offer a fantastic solution for learning to ride a bike. Designed with safety, comfort, and fun in mind, these trikes are a perfect choice for toddlers.
This guide will explore the different models available and help you choose the ideal Kinderfeets Tiny Tot Trike for your child.
The Tiny Tot 2 in-1, a convertible wooden tricycle to balance bike, is available in two models: the original Tiny Tot or Classic and its larger sibling, the Tiny Tot Plus.
The Classic Tiny Tot Trike
The Kinderfeets Tiny Tot is suitable for children between 12 and 24 months. It’s designed to accommodate their size and developmental stage. The seat height is adjustable. The range is from 21.5 cm to 28 cm, allowing you to find the perfect fit for your little one.
The Tiny Tot is available in Bamboo, Coral, Red, Cream and Sage.
The Tiny Tot Plus Trike
The Kinderfeets Tiny Tot PLUS is a larger version of the popular Tiny Tot, the 2-in-1 bike that easily converts from a tricycle to a 2-wheel balance bike, designed for ages 18 months to 4 years. The seat can be adjusted from 25cm to 34cm.
The Tiny Tot Plus is available in Slate Blue, White, Pink, Silver Sage, and Bamboo.
The recommended age for the Tiny Tot Classic is 12-24 months, while the Tiny Tot PLUS is suitable for ages 18 months to 4 years. However, age alone is not the sole factor in choosing. You should also consider your child’s size, specifically their ability to sit on the seat with their feet flat on the floor.
Have your child sit on a stable surface with their feet flat on the floor. Measure the distance from the ground to the top of their inseam. Compare this measurement to the seat height range of each model:
- Classic: Seat Height 23-28cm Plus:
- Seat Height 25-34cm
If your child’s inseam falls within the seat height range of the Classic, that model will be a good fit. However, the Plus model will suit them better if their inseam is above the range.
To assemble your Tiny Tot, follow the instructions and use the included tools. All the necessary parts are provided for both the trike and balance bike configurations. Keep the balance bike components in a safe place for future use.
Some children may take time to develop the motor skills, balance, and coordination required to ride the Tiny Tot. Keep encouraging them, and they’ll get the hang of it eventually.
When your child has gained the skills and is ready to move onto a balance bike, follow the instructions; remove a rear wheel and fit the single-wheel axle to switch from a trike to a balance bike. Everything you need for this is included in the box, but keep the conversion kit safe for future use.
The Tiny Tot is a wooden product protected by a lacquer veneer coating. Avoid storing it in exposed locations with elements or where condensation can build up. Check the bolts before each ride, as they may loosen over time. Meticulous care and assembly instructions are included with the product.
You will need a soft tape measure to measure your child’s head for a bike helmet. Wrap the tape measure around the circumference of your child’s head, just above their eyebrows. Make sure the tape measure is level all the way around. Write down the measurement in centimetres.
Here are the steps in detail:
- Have your child stand up straight and look straight ahead.
- Place the soft tape measure just above your child’s eyebrows.
- Wrap the tape measure around the circumference of your child’s head, ensuring the tape measure is level all the way around.
- Write down the measurement in centimetres.
Once you have your child’s head measurement, you can use it to find the right size helmet. Most helmets will have a size range listed on the inside. For example, a helmet that says “46-52 cm” will fit a child with a head circumference of 46 to 52 centimetres.
It is essential to ensure the helmet fits snugly but not too tightly. The helmet should sit level on your child’s head, and there should be no more than two fingers between the helmet and your child’s forehead. The straps should be adjusted to be snug but not too tight. You should be able to wiggle your child’s fingers under the straps.
A properly fitted helmet will help to protect your child’s head in the event of a fall.
