You can buy a brand-new tricycle that looks exactly like one you rode as a kid. But you probably don’t want to. After considering more than 30 of today’s tricycles and test-driving 12 of them with a dozen kids, we think most people whose kids are still toddlers should get the Joovy TriCyCoo 4.1. This grow-with-me tricycle offers significantly more versatility than competitors. It works as a stroller alternative for smaller kids who are still learning to pedal on their own, and allows a smooth, fast, fun ride for bigger kids, too. We also like the Radio Flyer Deluxe Steer & Stroll as a less expensive (though also less versatile) option for older toddlers; the Schwinn Roadster for a stylish low ride; and the Angeles Midi for an upgrade pick to outlast them all.

Joovy Tricycoo 4.1, the best tricycle

Joovy Tricycoo 4.1

The best tricycle
The Joovy TriCyCoo works for a baby, converts quickly to a big-kid bike, and is easier and more fun for bigger kids to ride than most traditional tricycles.
We recommend
Radio Flyer Deluxe Steer & Stroll, better over age 2

Radio Flyer Deluxe Steer & Stroll

Better over age 2
This trike lacks a restraint system and sunshade for small kids, and it’s not as easy to ride as our pick, but it usually costs less.
Another good choice
Schwinn Roadster 12-inch Trike, the best low rider

Schwinn Roadster 12-inch Trike

The best low rider
This stylish Schwinn is best suited to kids age 3 and up, who can tear up the road on this larger, heavier, more stable modern take on the Big Wheel.
Another good choice
Angeles Midi, built to last a hundred kids

Angeles Midi

Built to last a hundred kids
Stable, durable, and smooth-riding, the Angeles Midi is the tricycle of choice for many preschools—it’s expensive, but it lasts years, and bigger kids can ride it after outgrowing our other picks.
