Updated: Top Trikes Under $100 [Plus Buy-It-Now Prices]

A child’s first trike. What a fun milestone! With all the models on the market, you may need a little guidance about which one to buy.

First, what features should you consider? Push bars allow you to push and steer the tricycle for younger kids who can’t do it on their own. They cut down on frustration–both for you and your tot.

You’ll also want to consider other features, like whether the pedals can serve as footrests when the parent bar is in, whether the child can steer while you’re pushing, whether you can adjust seat and/or handlebar height as the child grows, and weight limits for the trike. Additionally, if the trike rides low to the ground, it may be less likely to tip.

Here’s a comparison of seven top selling trikes under $100 on the market that feature parent push bars. I’ve listed Buy-It-Now prices (i.e. very good sale prices), too. I’ve also listed a few specs on each trike below. Click through and find out more about each tricycle at the product description on Amazon. You can also read reviews there.

If you’re new to my Buy-It-Now price lists, here’s what you need to know: “Buy It Now” (BIN) prices are what I consider “very good” prices on the item. They’re the best sale prices you can expect to find fairly regularly, based on records of previous sales. Don’t confuse these with the “lowest price ever” price. You may be able to beat this price if you happen onto a unusually great sale.
