Depends on how big she is and her skill level. If she's short, can she reach the pedals of the tricycle? Can she pedal or learn to pedal easily?
Both are winners. DS got the cozy coupe from Santa last year when he was 15 months. He was so funny. He jumped through the window Dukes of Hazard style LOL. He got a tricycle in September for his 2nd birthday. I was surprised he learned so quickly how to pedal and steer. He still loves both.
If you have a Toys R Us nearby, take her in and let her get on them both and see which you think works best for her.

by bebe_ju-rahJanuary 3, 2013 at 9:05 PMDd didn't figure out how to ride her tricycle (the pedaling was really tricky for her) until she was 3.5. I'd go with a cozy coupe unless you want to push her everywhere. :)
My son has a cozy coupe and rarely uses it. Makes me sad b/c I had always wanted one for my kids and it took me till the 3rd kid to get one and he doesn't even care. LOL
Because she is so young, I would either get the cozy coupe - if you think she'd like it - but buy it from a garage sale or off craigs list.......then next year, get the tricycle. :)
OR if you want the tricycle, get one that has a push bar in the back...so you can push and steer it for her her until she is older and can really use it.

We have both. I like the bike better. However, it is more work for us b/c he could not peddle at first and we had to push him (it has a handle for pushing). But my LO learned to peddle early, he's been riding a bike with training wheels since he's 2 1/2
