The Tricycle: The Sequel

The modified tricycle

I've posted several times about the tricycle that Jaydon very cleverly modified (retro-fitted so to speak) by removing the seat. Now he has one more creative modification.

Yes, it is a beach chair positioned on the back of the trike!  It took him a little while to figure out how to rig it up (I hope this is a sign that we have a future engineer here!) but he got it and off he went. And I love the hole-ey knees in these pants, isn't that the sign of a typical boy?
I'm not sure how much longer the trike will interest him; he got a 24-inch bike for Christmas.  But the trike has served well, as a regular tricycle for a very small boy and then as a creative toy for a big boy. Cameron also likes to play with it, so there must be something special about the red trike! 
As I've said before, kids don't need expensive toys to have fun!
