Win a SmarTrike Splash 5-in-1!

Win a SmarTrike Splash 5-in-1!

It’s Day 1 of my epic Christmas Gift Giveaway and today you have the chance to  win a SmarTrike Splash 5-in-1 for your little one!

SmarTrike Splash 5-in-1 - SmarTrike Trike Kids Bike Kids Trike Toddler Trike

You’ll have recently read about how my little boy has been riding around and loving his new SmarTrike and here is your chance to get your hands on a SmarTrike Splash in time for Christmas. How happy would your toddler be to get one for themselves!

The SmarTrike Splash 5-in-1 grows and transforms with your toddler so as they get older and able to do more as they go through five key developmental stages, the SmarTrike allows them to.

We love that our SmarTrike encourages my son to learn through play and he’s already trying to use the pedals and steer himself as we push him along.

SmarTrike’s clever design nurtures the development of motor and social skills in order to increase confidence and independence.  It also moves with ease thanks to smarTrike’s patented Touch Steering technology which means pushing my son ‘off road’ to the local park is easy.

The SmarTrike Splash features include:

  • a premium reclining seat
  • storage bag
  • bottle holder
  • UV protective canopy
  • double-layer shock absorbing rubber wheels
  • safety bar
  • foot rests
  • padded seat
  • removable parent handle

Sometimes Mini falls asleep on the way back from a busy day at the park and the SmarTrike high-backed seat reclines which means he can have a comfortable nap on the way home and the harness and safety bar means he’s tucked in safely.

By the time Mini is 2, the SmarTrike can be turned into a training trike and he’ll be able to have a go at pedaling and steering himself if we remove the parent handle.

You can get your own SmarTrike Splash worth $179 at Target, Big W, Baby Bunting, Toys R Us and Harvey Norman or you can enter below to be in with a chance to win one!

    Taking the kids to the USA for Christmas and visiting Yosemite when it snowed. The kids had such a ball in the snow, first time they had seen it. My favourite memory is of the little church there, deer wandering around and the tall trees covered in snow. A picture perfect Christmas Card scene.

    Tools were jingling, springs were springaling too ????
    I’ll never forget the year we had an impromptu midnight Christmas party with our neighbours. Our parents had snuck into the back yard in the middle of the night to put together our new trampoline for Christmas morning only to find both our neighbours trying to do the same thing. Being children and being too excited to sleep we found them out! So they gave up the secrecy, we got out some Christmas tucker and the parents put together three trampolines while a bunch of overexcited, overtired children ran around playing and having the best Christmas ever.

    I will never forget the Christmas on my grandparents farm and trying to find the kittens the cat had just given birth to and hidden around the garden. It was magical memories like this that remind me that kids don’t need bells and whistles and consoles to have fun. The magic is there; you just have to find it.

    Twas the morning of Christmas while getting lunch prepared,
    Need to do poo’s my 3 year old declared,
    Busy cooking puddings, I thought she’d be fine
    Soon after thinking, wow she’s been a long time,
    Very quickly I ran into the loo,
    OMG!! She has smeared the walls with her poo!
    LOADS of toilet paper over the floor,
    Every single roll pulled from the drawer,
    Threw her into bath, with family arriving quick
    I disinfected and cleaned – boy it smelt sick!
    Cleaning it all, not one bit I missed,
    That year she was definitely on my naughty list!

  48. Peta B
    9th November 2016 / 2:56 pm

    It wasn’t the presents, it was the efforts my parents (in particular my Dad) went to. He walked up our gravel drive way on heels to show “reindeer hooves”, used horse poo to show the reindeer had been busy, lovingly tore teeth marks in the gumleaves and bite marks in the carrots. Sheer bliss for a child

    My last Christmas with dad , we would get up early and start to prepare for the lamb on the spit. Paste with herbs, garlic , lemon juice and watch it slowly rotate for four hours until cooled to perfection. Family was looking forward to this as we only have it once a year. Festive a magical place no need for reservations , family , friends satiate in joyful conversations. Laughter holds everyone in captivation, no isolation, just happy celebrations, rejoicing with those we love.

    Christmas in hospital was fun
    Fussed over by nurses, visited by everyone
    Best bit about the stay
    The baby girl I got to take away
