If you’re looking for a great gift idea for a little boy this holiday season, you’ve gotta check out the Bentley 6-in-1 Stroller and Trike. Today I’m sharing my in-depth review and experience using this trike with my youngest sons.
With seven kiddos under our roof, I’ve seen and tried my fair share of strollers and ride-on toys, but this trike has truly been a breath of fresh air. Let me break down why we’re loving it, and why you might want to consider a kids’ trike over a traditional stroller OR in addition to your stroller.
The Bentley Motors 6-in-1 Trike: A Versatile Ride for Growing Kids
Let’s kick things off with what makes the Bentley 6-in-1 Trike stand out from the crowd. This trike is designed to grow with your child, offering six different modes that cater to various developmental stages. From as early as 6 months, when your little one needs a cozy and secure spot, all the way up to 5 years when they’re ready to pedal on their own, this trike has got you covered.
Multiple Stages For Various Ages
- Stage 1: Stroller with the seat facing the parent or caregiver. Perfect for young infants because they are able to get all your attention. I haven’t seen this feature offered in other trikes and love it! (Recommended for ages 6m and up)
- Stage 1(alternate setup): Stroller with the seat facing forward and the infant footrests deployed for adventure and comfort (Recommended for ages 6m and up)
- Stage 2: Toddler footrest deployed for kids with legs too long for the infant footrests but not long enough to reach the pedals. (Recommended for 12m and up)
- Stage 3: Toddler footrests are removed with free wheel and free handlebar clutch engaged to ensure the parent retains control. (Recommended for 24 months and up)
- Stage 4: The backrest and parent handle are removed for kids that are ready for independence & can take control of the trike on their own. (Recommended for ages 4 and up)
The different stages really make this trike one that will last for your child for years!
Assembling the Bentley Trike: A Breeze for Busy Moms (and Dads)
As a mom with a very hectic schedule, I certainly don’t have time for complicated assembly jobs. The Bentley Trike scored major points with me for its quick and easy setup. The instructions were clear making it a breeze. I didn’t even need my husband’s assistance in setting it up. Within no time, we had a stylish ride ready for action!
Freedom to Explore
One of the biggest perks, when you opt for a trike over a stroller, is the freedom it gives to your child as he or she gets older. While strollers are great for infants, they can be limiting as your child grows older and more curious about the world around them. The Bentley Trike gives your child the opportunity to explore their surroundings, fostering independence and a sense of adventure.
Built for Comfort and Safety
Safety is very important to me as a parent and when the Bentley Trike was designed they put a lot of safety features into it. It comes with a five-point harness, a padded seat for extra comfort, and an adjustable canopy to shield your little one from the sun. The sturdy metal frame construction and easy-to-engage braking system also provide peace of mind, especially when you’re using it in busier areas.
Quality Materials for Long-Lasting Use
With seven active kiddos, most of them being boys, durability is non-negotiable in our household. The Bentley Motor Company Trike is constructed with high-quality materials that can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. From the rugged tires that give your child a smooth ride to the solid, matte black frame, to the heavy-duty canopy, it’s clear that this trike was built to last.
We have been using this trike for a solid year at this point and it still looks nearly new! Not only that, we take it on all terrains – bumpy roads with potholes, through the yard, even in the garden! It handles any terrain with ease.
A Cost-Effective Choice
Investing in a high-quality trike like the Bentley 6-in-1 can actually save you money in the long run. Unlike strollers that are eventually outgrown, this trike grows with your child, providing years of enjoyment. You have the use of several footrest positions plus multiple setups as mentioned above. It’s a versatile investment that adapts to your child’s changing needs.
A Great Look That Dads Will Love
I’ve gotta admit that one of the first things that initially drew me to this trike besides the gorgeous Bently style is that I knew my husband would also love this Bently Motor Company trike just as much as I! It features Bentley’s world-famous badge, cross-stitched seats, Bentley Continental GT replica wheels along with practical things like a cup holder, extra-large canopy, and the detachable parent push handle.
The Bentley Trike is available in 9 colors including the beautiful Sequin Blue color shown in these photos and also Spruce Green, Jetstream Blue, White Satin, Centennial (with gold stitching), Dragon Red, Fuchsia Pink, the luxurious Mulliner, and Onyx Black.
The design of these trikes is the perfect combination of elegance, functionality, and Bentley style plus the smooth ride you’d expect from a Bentley!
It’s All in the Accessories
This trike comes loaded with the best accessories! It’s got swivel and reclining padded seats, three sets of footrests, a detachable parent push handle, a cup holder, plus a storage bag on the handle AND down by the back wheels.
My boys love the Bentley 6-in-1 Trike and my husband and I do too! It offers versatility, comfort, and safety for our little ones, and I LOVE how easy it is for us to push and steer.
We love using it for everyday strolls to our mailbox for the toddler and my older kids enjoy peddling it themselves. There were even times during the summer when I would put our baby in it, open the hood of the trike, and push it next to our garden so my baby would have a safe and comfortable spot to watch me while I worked.
If you’re considering transitioning from a stroller to a trike, just skipping the stroller outright, or looking for something that lets you have BOTH, I can’t recommend the Bentley enough. It’s been a welcome addition to our garage and family!
