Last weekend we were out cycling when we spotted something different on the bike path: a recumbent-style trailer for kids.
We weren’t quick enough to get a photo of it but later we searched online and discovered that we’d seen the WeeHoo trailer.

We’re still getting a lot of use out of our Chariot Cougar 1 trailer but the WeeHoo is an intriguing solution as Luke grows up. In another year or so (when he’s 2+ years old), we think he’d love this. We like the look of it better than a standard tag-along bike because it would allow him to relax (read, sleep, play) while riding.
It’s also reasonably affordable: $298.93 from REI.
From what we’ve read so far, the trailer gets fairly positive reviews online. We’ve seen comments such as:
I cannot stress enough how much my kid loves this thing. Between the harness and the pedal straps I’m not worried about her at all. We whip through curvy sidewalk approaches, ride over and off of curbs, hit potholes, have managed to hit 28 mph… all without the first sign of problems.
My daughter is strapped in with a nice, comfortable harness in a cushy seat. Her weight is down low where it doesn’t affect the feel of my bike. The hitch is completely different from other trailers. It uses your seat post as an axle which eliminates almost all loose play. It comes with bags which, while not as quality as nice panniers, are great for putting your kid’s stuff in. Not only can your kid snack while peddling, the Weehoo comes with a cup holder and pocket for snacks that your kid can reach. My daughter can take a little snooze after a long day.
The main downfall of the WeeHoo seems to be its weight: it’s a hefty 15kg or 35 pounds. Tackling the Alps with this trailer might be out of the question but it but it should be fine for touring around the flatter parts of the world. On the other hand, some people don’t seem to take any notice of the weight!
And, for families with more than one kid, WeeHoo’s Facebook page suggests that a new double trailer will be hitting the market soon.
Do you have any experience with the WeeHoo trailer? Leave a comment.

only problem I can see from existing pic, even a good bicycle fender will not save junior in the event the roads are wet from rain, muck and road grime. :^D

we have a weehoo, our grandson loved it. we have toured in the eastern uk with it, me pulling the weehoo and loaded with 4 panniers. I never had to walk any hills. grandson now moving onto his own bike, so may not get much use. report of our trip is on crazyguyonabike, search under my name or Karen delf.

I have a weehoo…. Love it. My 4 yr old’s favorite thing in the world is to go on bike rides now. Have used it with both my mountain bike and road bike and works equally great on both. Have taken it off road and on paved trails. Works great on both. Offers the child plenty of protection while allowing them to be up off the ground and enjoying the ride. Great customer service from the home office as well. Highly recommend it!

My name is Geoff, I work over at Weehoo, I just wanted to comment on the weight, you listed the trailer at 35 pounds, that is the boxed up weight.
It is closer to 27 pounds assembled (2012 model going forward).

We’ve recently invested in the Weehoo, having read some great reviews. Having used it for a month, I must say we’re left with mixed opinions. On the whole it does the job, with the little one always eager to go a bike ride, sitting comfortably for hours on end. However, there are a few drawbacks which have become apparent over the past month as well:
1. Protection in wet weather from spray kicked up by the tow bike. This has been quite an issue as the little one has had muddy spray over him (face, chest, legs) luckily none in the eye. We find ourselves avoiding puddles in the road all the time. This is despite investing in an extra-long and wide rear mudflaps for the tow bike.
Additionally, the spray protection offered from the Weehoo’s tyre is quite minimal with spray on the back of the seat, which has ended up on the little one’s helmet as well. I think as a minimal there should be a fender on the rear wheel, to avoid the issue.
2. Components – Having paid quite a bit, you expect a really high quality product, however there is something left to be desired. Just yesterday the chain broke, I doubt if the little one (3 years) exerted so much force on the pedals, which caused the chain to break. There is noticeable play between the main trailer and the tow arm, where they join up (with the quick release). In my opinion the trailer arm which inserts into the towbar is a bit short, especially in the most extended position (inch and a half or two overlap). 3 inches of extra length would be so much more better, and with more adjustment points help in situations where the tow bike has longer than average rear chain stays.
On the whole we’re quite happy, as the weehoo has opened up a whole new possibility of activities we can do, however some minor tweaks would greatly enhance the customers experience, from dejection to delight.
