Toy Story meets Cars in this sweet and relatable story that explores universal themes of friendship and growing up.
Look out, world! There’s a shiny, new Bike in town. But what does this mean for rusty, old Trike?
Trike is a rusty little fellow, a trusty little fellow, on three worn-down wheels. Now that Lulu has outgrown him, he’s lonely in the garage. But then a newcomer shows up. He’s shiny and big and has FOUR wheels. It’s BIKE! Gulp. Trike worries that Bike won’t know how to take care of Lulu. Bike won’t listen, and challenges Trike to a race. It’s ON!
