The Elektra Flashing Hog in blue is a chunky, funky toy for young children who are able to use pedals. The lights set into the wheel can be set to flash or remain constant depending on your child's preferred mode. This trike enables children to really find their independence and confidence. There is a brake located on the front wheel so that children can begin to learn the skills of stopping and starting on their own. Having a trike encourages children to spend more time exercising outside, which is never a bad thing. It is also really helpful as an adult to be able to offer the opportunity for children to ride the scooter to local errands. Trikes are much more fun than walking and children are more likely to agree to the outing! Riding a trike is great for building up muscles and developing gross motor skills. Pedaling strengthens leg muscles and gripping the handlebars and pulling the brake are great for hand strength which is a fantastic way of developing muscles that will aid writing skills. The design of this trike is hugely appealing to children, with the contrasting bright blue and black colours, fun design and huge front wheel. The Elektra Flashing Hog is something that friends will be envious of. The bike requires a small amount of assembly and four AA batteries. It is recommended that children wear pads on their knees and elbows as well as a helmet as children are likely to want to ride their Flashing Hog as fast as they can!
