Well, no, not really. We've tried for several years now. I've duck-walked backward in front of the trike, holding her feet onto the pedals, and she'd go around a few times that way. She'd sit on the trike and propel herself with feet on the ground. But no, she'd never pedaled before.
"Oh, then you have to see this. Look, she was getting her feet onto the pedals and would keep them on when I pushed her... here, Joy, feet on the pedals... and then when I let her go, she kept on going... wait, Joy, can you put your feet back on? Oh, no. Well, she was doing it a minute ago!"
Heh. Elvis rides again.
By the way, this is an awesome little trike. It's a Kiddio by Kettler, cost us $40 new in 2005, not difficult to assemble, and still going strong.
