  • For almost 50 years, The Original Big Wheel has been a kids’ favorite way to get around.
  • The sturdy plastic tricycle features its iconic 16-inch big wheel and a three-position seat.
  • The seat is approximately six inches off the ground, so young riders will have an easy time getting on and off, and the low center of gravity makes for a safer ride.
  • The seat is also adjustable in three positions to grow with your child. The oversized front wheel is ideal for fast-action peddling as the wide rear wheels grip the sidewalk for high-speed stability and control.
  • The classic pedal-powered ride-on toy is available in three colors: Blue/Black, Pink/Black, and Red/Yellow.
  • Ages: 3+
