Addie got a trike like this for her second birthday, but it’s the Radio Flyer version.  We love it!  Addie doesn’t consistently pedal, yet, (she starts and stops) so this type of trike is great since we can continue to push her even if she stops peddaling.  We use it a lot, especially on walks to park, since she prefers it to the double stroller.  I think it’s a great gift!

My kids had something like this and I loved it.  I don’t think I used it until my kids were around 1 & 1/2 years old though.  When they were younger we still used a stroller so that in case they fell asleep you could recline the seat back to be flat.  Can you do that on the above stoller/tryke?

Board books are great – especially the ones that have textures in them (like fur).  My kids couldn’t get enough of those.  Anything that makes music is great too. 

My son had this ball popper that he loved. Something like this:

My kids had a music table like this. 

Sand/water tables are awesome too.  In the winter we brought the table inside and put dried noodles in it.

I’ve never seen that particular trike but it looks awesome! I love the harness for the little ones.

 We have a trike similar to that but only the second and third stages (if thet makes sense). She only just started really being able to use it own her own at 2 years and before that we would have to push her around in it and it was just a real chore for us.

 I think the swingset is a much better idea. My kids have loved swings since they were about 6 months old and with the seat for the younger kids I think it would be great. Your niece will outgrow the trike long before the swingset and it will also be able to be used for other future children.
