Schwinn Roadster Trike
Parents who want a durable tricycle that can be passed down to younger children recommend the 12-inch Schwinn Roadster Trike. This steel-framed tricycle is more durable than plastic models, reviews say, and experts and users alike praise the retro styling. The trike comes with pneumatic tires, an adjustable bucket seat, chrome fenders and a wooden standing deck. The Schwinn Roadster Trike earns praise for easy assembly, and kids enjoy extras like tassels and a handlebar bell. Although the steel frame gets high marks for durability, it's also heavy, which is a common complaint about kids' bikes. Some parents also say they have problems finding replacement inner tubes for the small tires. The Schwinn Roadster Trike is available for both girls and boys, and it comes in blue, red or pink.
