CRESSKILL, N.J., Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Infants outgrow their possessions quickly, and as short-lived toys pile up, so does the waste. To counter this, Smart-Trike™ U.S.A., LLC, the award-winning children's products company, invented a convertible design for wheeled vehicles that grows with children ages six or ten months to three years.

Smart-Trike™ pioneered a new category in children's vehicles by making the tricycle concept, originally designed for older kids, accessible to babies as young as six months in the form of recliners and strollers with  safe steering handles giving parents full control in their early stages before converting into trikes. Smart-Trike™'s stylish designs feature special seats with long back support for maximum baby comfort and protection.

For the holidays, parents have many Smart-Trike™ options.

The Smart-Trike™ Zoo Collection is a delightful, trendy animal-themed collection that includes bees, cows, butterflies and frogs. Retailing for $139.99, the Zoo Collection is a three-in-one model adaptable for children ten months to three years. Initially it's a stroller with adjustable parent steering handle for full parent control, a clutch for free-wheeling, a seat with a long back support for early stages, safety straps, bottle holder and play phone, and removable canopy to protect baby. Rubber wheels ensure a smooth, quiet ride. Features can gradually be removed until the child can operate the tricycle independently. The Smart-Trike™ Zoo won numerous awards including the highly commended Right Start Award and the celebrated Toy Talk award.

The Smart-Trike™ All-in-One Stage 2 offers value and multifaceted features. Retailing for $200, this product adjusts with baby from six months to two years of age. It's a four-wheeled vehicle that starts as a baby cradle with a rocker base, then transforms into a push along and a push along ride-on. When baby grows up, it converts into an independent ride-on, and then a stable 4 wheeled scooter

The Smart-Trike™ Recliner 4-in-1 is a stroller that morphs into a tricycle that a child can operate independently. Retailing for $200, this innovative design has an adjustable reclining seat enabling the baby to take a nap, an adjustable, detachable steering handle for full parental control during the first stages, two footrests – one for when baby is 6 months (later removed) and one for when baby is 10 months. Additional features: detachable, adjustable canopy , anti slip pedals, anti-rollover bucket, foot brake, washable seat cover, rain cover and storage bag. The Smart-Trike™ Recliner is Stroller Certified. The Recliner won the 2009 Toy Innovation Award and the Right Start Overall Best and Gold Awards. This year it won the Preferred Choice award and Toy Talk award.

Smart-Trike™ products are available at Toys 'R' Us and Babies 'R' Us nationwide. Ease of assembly and cleverly constructed accessories make Smart-Trike™ a smart investment.

"We at Smart-Trike™ prioritize children's safety and comfort and the satisfaction and pleasure of their parents," said Smart-Trike™ Marketing Executive Robert Kramer. "Our innovations are highly regarded products throughout the world and we're very pleased to make them available to parents in the United States."
