This thing is so safe that I feel “safe” just looking at it. Butler Shaffer’s daughter sent me the link, along with her delightful comments: “Sun-protection, five point seat belt, wrap-around roll bar… for a tricycle.  It might even have an air bag, I didn’t check!”

Air bags, heck – but does it have side air bags, and can you use that cup holder to store a couple of flares if an emergency stop is deemed necessary? Or is that the holder for the SPF 50 sun block? This thing would pass any government safety check, except I wonder if all of that “stuff” would be distracting to the point of not making the grade with Ray LaHood’s distracted driving paradigm? I can ‘t wait to see what the world’s most insightful free-range mom, Lenore Skenazy, has to say about this one.

    Hi! ‘Tis me, Lenore the Free-Range Kids lady, wondering: IS THIS REAL?? If so, can you please send me the link to its site? One of the things that really interests me about our society is how items and regimens from the special needs community almost inevitably migrate to the non-special-needs world as if all children are somehow incapacitated. If this trike is real and not designed specifically for special needs kids, it certainly proves the point! L.

    The air bag is in the front.

    It’s the one in the blue blouse…
