After having spent so much time indoors all winter long, I can't blame my kids for having so much energy and excitement built up when we see that a nice sunny day is in store for us.
Whether that means that they are running laps around our house or climbing on the furniture, I'm partially amazed at how long they can keep moving without seeming to need a rest... while also knowing that we need to get outdoors and enjoy some fun in the fresh air before we all lose our minds.
And when it comes to searching for quality toys that are designed to be original and imaginative, yet simple and open-ended, I know where to look: Magic Cabin. Even better, they have an entire category of outdoor toys that are perfect for encouraging being active, getting some exercise, and exploring a new adventure. I don't think it's possible to not have fun with such a variety of amazing toys and games!
Focusing on the notion that children's lives are enriched by ample time for unrestrictive, creative, imaginative play, Magic Cabin believes in letting children lead the way when it comes to entertainment. With a combination of make believe and simple, natural toys and crafts, they look to fill childhood with toys that are beautiful and enchanting, sturdy and safe, and, of course, fun.
After seeing how much time Big Sister E and Little Sister spent last summer with our Spinning Seesaw review and just how much they loved playing outside with it, I had no doubt that they would enjoy spending this summer with Magic Cabin's Grow-With-Me Trike/Scooter.
Featuring two energy-burning ways to play, the Grow-With-Me Trike/Scooter transforms between a sturdy wooden trike and a wide-based scooter so that children ages 2 - 5 can have twice as much fun.
As I opened the box, I was slightly concerned that the assembly for this Trike/Scooter might take a while...
...however, after laying out all of the pieces and looking over the illustrated instructions, I realized that the assembly was actually going to be fairly intuitive.
In around a half hour or so, the pile of parts had turned into a wooden tricycle that both girls were clamoring to ride.
The modern Italian design and the high quality craftsmanship are easily evident and there is no mistaking this trike for a plastic one found discarded in yards and garages near and far.
With each wheel and bolt tightly in place, Big Sister E and Little Sister B took turns riding up and down the sidewalk. As there aren't any pedals to get the hang of or time needed to get used to balancing, they were zooming around in no time.
Even better, after they had successfully conquered the trike, I was able to change things around (by removing parts off of the front and back and reattaching them) and end up with a scooter that was just as attention-grabbing and fun.
It did take a little longer to transform between the trike and scooter than I had thought, so I don't plan on switching back and forth daily. However, it was definitely easy enough that it could be done with a little bit of time and patience... and it was worth it to see just how much the kids enjoy scooting!
Both as a trike and a scooter, the Grow-With-Me Trike/Scooter has the ability to provide an irresistible "come play with me" aura that kids love. Both of my daughters have spent an endless amount of time riding up and down the block or scooting around the neighborhood and the way that this one toy can adapt to multiple skill levels (and has a weight limit all the way up to 150 pounds) makes it something that will able to be pulled out for quite a few years.
Retailing for $120, the Grow-With-Me Trike/Scooter fits right in line with Magic Cabin's selection of innovative and high quality items. Their easy-to-browse website gives you plenty of options of unique and fun toys and games for all ages and their collection of Magic Cabin Exclusives are an especially great line that you won't find anywhere else... but are sure to thrill your child for birthdays, holidays, to celebrate summer or just for any occasion that deserves a great gift.
Combine all of that with their friendly, reliable service and 100% satisfaction guarantee for life and it is easy to see why Magic Cabin customers return year after year for more. And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to choose their own favorite toy to surprise the child in their life as well, because...
