Lucas' Little Mercedes

I went looking for a Kettler tricycle because I wanted Lucas to have a good quality tricycle that would grow with him.  If you know anything about tricycles, Kettler is like the Mercedes of tricycles...and not just because they're both German engineered.  Kettler trikes are rugged, have great craftsmanship, and have a number of cool features....oh yeah, and like the Mercedes...they're spendy. 

However, I went fishing for one on Craigslist and got lucky.  We picked one up for about 1/3 of the price of a new one and it even came with a basket, seatbelt, and a bell...Lucas' favorite feature.  The 4-year-old whose Mom sold it to us, was glaring at us with incredible contempt...the story has a happy ending though because they were investing our cash in a Buzz Lightyear bicycle for him.  Everybody wins!  Here's Lucas on his first outing on his first tricycle.  He's learning to pedal and steer.
