Our VTech Tour De Trike Route in Leeds


Getting out and about with children is so important. Being outdoors, going on adventures and exploring your surroundings, not only is it great for moral but it can be educational as well as fun. This month, VTech shared with us their plan to get us all outdoors in celebration of their brand new VTech 5 in 1 Stroll and Grow Trike

The trike grows with your child and is suitable from 9 months to 6 years, changing through each stage to suit with the help of the waterproof electronic activity panel which includes 4 modes of play as the user grows. 


We were asked to go out on out adventures, using the VTech 5 in 1 Stroll and Grow Trike and then relay the route we took, in our favourite Yorkshire place, so VTech could create our Tour De Trike Route

As someone who fairly regularly travels around West Yorkshire and loves exploring parks, we knew that Roundhay Park in Leeds would be suitable for our route. 


Roundhay Park is one of the biggest city parks in Europe. It has more than 700 acres of parkland, lakes, woodland and gardens. As well as the walks and parks, there is also Tropical World there too which is one of the UK's most popular garden tourist attractions and home to the largest collection of tropical plants outside Kew Gardens.

The park has so many beautiful sights and is the perfect place to go for a walk with the trike. The trike has the option of fixed front or swivel wheels so is perfect for any different terrains you are on. I found that locking the drifting rear wheels helped over more uneven ground and cobbles.


J loved to electronic panel and was singing along with it as we walked as well as pointing out things and people it was talking about. What I like about the trike is that, even though there are the 5 stages, you can alter these to fit your child and their needs. 

Most of the time we used the fixed front wheel with the drifting wheels enabled so that it was easy for me to push around bends but what I also like was that I could click the pedals off so that J could still use them, but they weren't constantly spinning. 

If you're ever in the Leeds area and want to check out a beautiful walk, the I highly recommend taking our Roundhay Park Route...

  4. It looks like lots of fun. We got rid of Megan's as we weren't planning on having anymore children, then along came 6 month old Mollie so we will need to invest in a new one for her, she would love a girl version of this xXx

  8. What a great investment apart from the wonderful fun and exercise. I like toys and gear like this that last for years rather than months.

  9. Graduation is a festive occasion - and one with surprisingly few rules when it comes to how you dress or what you wear. While thinking what dresses you wear.jadegownshop mother of the bride calf length shift dress reviews
