What has a 5-point Harness, Side Bars, Shade Screen and DRINK HOLDER?

Hint: The old version of this vehicle used to have a seat, handlebars and three wheels, period. I can’t figure out if I’m more distressed by the safety equipment that seems better designed for the Turbo Drop, or the fact that we don’t seem capable of doing anything for more than two minutes without a drink at hand.-LLittle Tikes® 3-in-1 Trike (Purple/Pink)
