The Elektra Flashing Hog in lilac is a toy that will be the envy of all your child's friends. With a flashing front wheel, which can also be set to constantly illuminated, your child will be the talk of the town. The lilac designs and contrasting white frame are eye-catching and enticing to children. Trikes are a fantastic toy for young children because as well as being a lot of fun and encouraging outdoor play, they develop some really important muscles in the body. Pedalling and steering also improve a child's coordination. The act of pedalling a trike will serve to strengthen the muscles in a child's leg, which in turn improves their ability to walk and run for longer distances. This trike includes a front wheel brake. Active gripping of the handlebars and squeezing this brake strengthens the muscles in the hand which helps to improve pen control and handwriting. Children will love the independence that their own trike offers. They can control the speed they go and the direction of travel. Children will want to ride their Flashing Hog as fast as they can so elbow and knee pads as well as helmets are recommended. The Elektra Flashing Hog requires minimal assembly and four AA batteries. After it is constructed, your child can sit back, begin pedal and enjoy all of the admiring glances coming their way.
