In South Florida the fall is when everyone starts being active outdoors, because finally we can exercise and have fun playing without the burning sun. While the big boys are loving riding their bikes to the park, my toddler is enjoying rides in his new Step 2 Taxi push car.
The Step 2 Taxi is one of the newest toys from Step 2, and Step 2 has really rolled out their expertise this time around. This terrific push car is definitely going to make an excellent holiday gift, and it will be sure to bring smiles to any toddler on Christmas morning.
I was afraid that the Step 2 Taxi would be too small for my two-year-old son, who is above average height. However, the Step 2 Taxi is perfect in every way, and my son fits great into the seat. He loves the beep beep sound that the horn makes, and he is just having a blast strolling down the palm tree-lined South Florida streets.
This weekend my big boys rode their bikes to our favorite neighborhood playgrond, while I walked and pushed my youngest son in his Step 2 Taxi. I was very surprised at how easily the Step 2 Taxi went down the side walk, and the thick wheels definitely helped make it a smooth ride for my son.
One of my original concerns about the Step 2 push car, was that I would have to bend over to push it, which I knew from plenty of stroller experience would give me a backache. Nevertheless, this was not the case with the Step 2 Taxi, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the Step 2 Taxi was to push, and how perfect the height of the handle is. I walked a couple of miles pushing the push car without feeling any aches or fatigue from pushing. The push car feels very light weight, and I actually think that the push car is easier to push than my big stroller.
When we arrived at the playground, it turned out that the Step 2 Taxi was quite a conversation starter. Not only did the other kids love it, but the moms were very excited about this new version of their favorite Step 2 push car. Several other moms mentioned to me that their children had had the original red Step 2 car, and that the new Step 2 Taxi seemed bigger.
The Step 2 Taxi also comes with a cup holder, and details such as the wide wheels make this Step 2 car a hit with moms on the go.
The older siblings pushed the younger siblings in the Step 2 Taxi, and a few of the kindergarten kids felt a strong attachment to the Step 2 car, even though it is only recommended from 18 – 48 months.
The Step 2 Taxi was definitely a hit at the playground, and all the kids got a ride in this cool push car.
What I Love About The Step 2 Taxi:
The wide wheels
The light weight feeling of the push car
The cup holder
The sturdiness of the Step 2 Taxi
The ease of pushing the Step 2 car
It is great for trips to the playground, to the mall and anywhere where the kids needs to be entertained while on the go.
What I Missed:
I missed some kind of storage, as we usually bring balls, picnic blanket, snacks and water to the playground.
The set up instructions could be a bit more clear.
My Final Thoughts
The Step 2 Taxi is definitely a hit at my house, and it is built to last. With three boys in the house, toys needs to be sturdy, and the Step 2 Taxi is just that. The Step 2 Taxi has impressed me in many ways, and it is very popular on the playground both with the kids and the moms.
