Is a four year old to big for a three-wheeler trike?

My son turns four in a few days and we finally got a house where he can play outside. I just don't know if I should get him a trike or a bike. I wanted to get him the Thomas trike at wal mart.

  • Get a big wheel. He can use it at least for 2 more years. My son still uses his at 5.

  • I got my kids bikes with training wheels, but I say if he fits he's good!

  • I would say a big wheeler or a trike r good. As long as he fits in it then you r good!! A trike is easier,they can reach the pedals easier.

  • I would say as long as he's not physically too large or too small that it make using anything difficult, unsafe, or impossible would be fine.
