When Your Child Refuses The Buggy – Microtrike Review

When Your Child Refuses The Buggy – Microtrike Review

My youngest little sprog is nearly 2 and a half. She’s a determined little thing, and has recently decided the pram is just not for her. Which wouldn’t be an issue if she would walk everywhere.

Imagine our excitement when we were invited to go and review – The Paulos Circus. We jumped at the chance! After a short (thankfully) car journey, with two over-excited children, we arrived at Farmer Copley’s in Pontefract, and the large…
