Getting the baby to enjoy the bike trailer

The baby - 1.5 years old - doesn't enjoy riding in her bike trailer. Our longest ride with her to date is 2 miles.

We were SO excited to take her out on the bike (and for us to start cycling again,) so as soon as she turned 1, we wanted to try out the trailer. Her helmet - the smallest size available - was too big.

So, we waited for several months. Five months to be exact.

Now that the helmet fits, my kid doesn't get a kick out of the trailer. We gave her snacks (occupied her for the most part) and loaded the trailer with stuffed animals and books, but after awhile, she had had it. I think she wants to ride on her own bike, not in a trailer.

A friend suggested what she used to do ... give the kid a radio with a knob so she can tune it. Cool idea!
