Are baby trikes the ideal way to encourage a 7-month old baby to reach for objects?
Asked 10 months ago
I bought some toys for my baby but she doesn't seem interested in grabbing them yet. Will teaching her how to ride a trike encourage her to use her hands more?

Baby trikes are not specifically designed to encourage babies and toddlers to reach for objects.
While riding a trike can promote physical development, including coordination, balance, and encouraging hand-eye coordination, object manipulation may be better achieved through age-appropriate, stimulating toys and engaging interactive play, at this stage of development.

Baby trikes are an excellent method to promote fine motor development. Make sure your baby can sit up by themselves. They can easily grab the tricycle's front or side handle once they have the core strength to sit upright. Make it more enjoyable by offering more reach-out options, such as favorite toys, and high fives, Taking them on a walk-in trike ride will give them additional possibilities for exploration.
