Radio Flyer 4 in 1 Stroll N Trike—a tricycle that grows with you

When I was growing up I had a Radio Flyer brand wagon. That wagon went on many adventures with me as I grew up. When my granddaughter came to live with us, we wanted to find a high quality transport device, but she was too little for a wagon as she was still an infant.

When we came across the Radio Flyer 4 in 1 Stroll N Trike, we knew almost immediately that this was a product we wanted to try. Here is our review of the Radio Flyer.

Product Overview

When we purchased the Radio Flyer 4 in 1, we were looking for something that would be versatile enough to last her for many years. We needed a second stroller and knew that soon she would be “triking” all around the neighborhood.

Our granddaughter was about 7 months old when we purchased the trike. We actually purchased the red ‘boys” model because the girls (pink) was about $20 more in price. It is still about a $15-$20 price difference.

The Benefits of a 4 in 1

Some of the best benefits of the 4 in 1 Stroll N Trike are:

  • Grows with your child — 4 ways to ride: infant trike, steering trike, learn-to-ride trike and classic trike.
  • Secure 3-point harness and high back seat for infant safety.
  • Removable safety tray with cup holder. Adjustable seat grows with your child.
  • Adult Steer & Stroll adjustable push handle. Front wheel coasts while adult pushes
  • Removable canopy for UV protection. Covered storage bin for added fun.
  • Adjustable grow-with-me seat
  • Weight capacity 49-Pounds 

One of the best benefits was that it was lightweight (15.23 pounds) and fairly easy to store at 19.9 x 35 x 40.8 inches.

We used the stroller part for about a year until she was about two. She quickly grew out of the trike part, however and she was riding a “big girl bike” with training wheels shortly after her third birthday.

She must have had good memories from the Radio Flyer, though, because she will occasionally ask about it.

There were a few drawbacks to the 4 in 1, but most of them were outweighed by the advantages of the trike.

A few of the things that we considered drawbacks were:

  • The short stroller handle. Being of average height, I had to stoop a bit to push the stroller and it was hard to go on long walks because of this.
  • When the pedals were not being used, the bike made a slight clicking sound when pushed.

Conclusion: The Radio Flyer 4 in 1 sails!

  1. Wow, I wasn’t familiar with this product, but I probably would have gotten it for my son. He is now 10, so past that point, but I like that it works for several years. We got my son a balance bike when he was about 3, and it worked great. Went straight from balance bike to a 2-wheeler. Never needed any training wheels. Might be something you want to look at.
