Radio Flyer Tricycles

Updated on February 13, 2012

Radio Flyer Tricycles

Radio Flyer Tricyles are perfect tricycles for 2 year olds, toddlers, and kids. Radio Flyer began its tradition by making classic red wagons over 90 year ago, in 1917. Since then, generation after generation has been buying these classic wagons, tricycles, and toys from Radio Flyer.

The Classic Dual Deck Radio Flyer Tricycle is the most classic style of all the kids trikes Radio Flyer makes. They have also explanded their tricycle line to include some great tricycles for 2 year olds including ride on trikes, and tricycles with push bars so parents can help control the speed and direction of their children as they learn to ride their trike. Radio Flyer also makes big wheel tricycles like the Radio Flyer Big Flyer and the Radio Flyer Slider Rider.

Radio Flyer Classic Dual Deck Tricycle

Radio Flyer Classic Dual Deck Tricycles

The Radio Flyer Classic Dual Deck Tricycle is probably the classic red tricycle that comes to mind when you think of Radio Flyer Tricycles. It features dual decks on the back, 12 inch high front wheel, rubber tires, a chrome bell, and red and white handle bar tassles. Available in the classic Radio Flyer Red paint or Pink for your favorite little girl. Recommended for 2 - 5 year olds. I remember as a child that my best friend had a Radio Flyer Tricycle, and it had the double deck on back. We would ride that trike up and down the sidewalk in our neighborhood, one of us would peddle the tricycle and one of us would ride on the back and help push it along with one foot on the deck and one foot pushing off the sidewalk. The Radio Flyer Tricycle was probably our favorite mode of transportation before we were old enough to ride a bicycle.

A smaller version, but similar trike is the Radio Flyer Classic 10 inch Tricycle. This trike is a more simple version and the front wheel is only 10 inches high (2 inches smaller than the Classic Dual Deck Tricycle).  Recommended for ages 24 months - 4 years old.

Slider Rider

Recommended age 2-5 years.

Spin out with the back wheel casters.

Watch the video below to see the Slider Rider in Action.

Radio Flyer Slider Rider - In Action

Radio Flyer Tailspin Trike

Recommend age: 5-8 years

Pull the manual lever and two small roller caster wheels pop down, the regular wheels pop up, and the trike can spin out!!!

This Radio Flyer Trike is designed for older kids (ages 5-8 years), as it takes some coordination to ride the tricycle, then pull the lever in order for the trike to spin out.

Tricycles for 2 year olds

If you are looking for a smaller starter trike, Radio Flyer makes some great tricycles for 2 year olds and up.

The Radio Flyer Deluxe Steer and Stroll Trikes have push bars on back so the parent can easily help push or slow down the tricycle without having to bend over.

The Radio Flyer Classic Tiny Trike is a walker ride on type trike (although I'm not sure why its called a trike, as it has four wheels). Recommended for ages 18 months - 3 years.

The Radio Flyer 2-in-1 Trike can transform from a tricycle to a chopper style big wheel type trike. The seat actually twists/flips over.

The Radio Flyer Classic Lights and Sound Tricycles (red or pink) has turn signals that flash, and features music and a honking horn.

The Radio Flyer Go and Grow Flyer has an adjustable frame so it can grow with your child. (watch the video below for a better description)
