Hape Trail Rider
Finding a ride-on that’s low to the ground and not tippy can be challenging. Hape’s Trail Rider has a broad enough wooden seat and double wheels – both back and front - to make it a fine first ride-on for toddlers. Unlike most foot-to-the-floor ride-ons that only go forward or back, the Trail Rider can be steered with ease. The front wheels respond to the motion of the handle bars, making it possible to turn and steer where the driver wants to go. It has plastic wheels with treads so it may not move as smoothly as rubber treads would, but it’s better than most in that respect.
