On this page you can find a plan that you can use for making a Children walker tricycle.

A children's tricycle is a quality toy for toddlers who have recently learned to walk. It will provide countless hours of fun during which the children will develop their physical skills and sense of balance.

266,5mm (10 ½ in) x 502mm (19 25/32 in) x 405mm (15 31/32 in).


If the child is too small, i. e. can not touch the ground with their feet, wait for a few months until they have grown and reached sufficient height to play with this toy. With very small children, you should initially take care of them while on the tricycle and assist them until they learn to ride on their own. The stem is connected to the front wheels and can be turned. Since this is a walker tricycle, it has no pedals and the child has to set it in motion by using his/her feet. Although there is no backrest in our plan, you can easily create one and attach it to the seat with dowels or screws if you like.

If the child plays with the tricycle inside the house, wrap some rubber band around the wheels to avoid damaging the floor. You can choose some eye-catching, bright colors to paint the tricycle, so the child will like it even more. Use only colors labelled as child-safe.

To make a strong and long-lasting tricycle, we recommend that you use hardwood for its production.
