Holiday Giveaways # 15 – Kettler Happy Navigator
Expected: tricycles help kids develop their gross motor skills.Frequent riding makes them stronger and more coordinated. The more time kids spend riding a trike, the better their foundation for learning to ride a bicycle later on. Plus, vigorous physical activity is just as good for kids as it is for adults. Getting regular exercise builds cardiac endurance and helps with healthy bone and joint development. A trike is an easy and fun way to make sure kids stay active.
Unexpected: experienced preschool teachers will tell you that a tricycle can help teach children the difference between left and right. It can help them grasp advanced cause and effect concepts and develop body awareness and spatial reasoning (will I fit through that narrow passage?).
Tricycles are one of our most popular gifts for one-year-olds, and while that may seem a little young, some babies can start learning to ride a trike even before they can walk. With close adult supervision, a pushbar and a fastened seat belt, almost-toddlers can practice steering left and right. As their coordination develops, they’ll figure out the pedaling movement, and then it won’t be long before they’re on the go.
We sell Kettler tricycles because we love the quality. Ketter designs and builds their trikes using factories that are wholly owned by Ketter. All of the design and engineering and a vast majority of the production is based in Germany. These are very tough, durable trikes that are built to withstand steady use by energetic children. They will last a long time, and can be passed along from child to child.
