I almost bought one of these for my 5 year old son but thankfully I did not.
He ended up learning how to ride a two wheeler in about 20 minutes so this would have been a real waste.
If anyone is interested, here is how I did it. Obviously, YMMV.



With pedals still attached to his 12" bike, i had him push off and glide. Told him not to put his feet on the pedals at first.
Once he was coasting comfortably for at least 30-50 feet, I had him put his feet on the pedals while the bike was rolling.
From there, it was only a few minutes until I encouraged him to pedal in order to keep going.

Both of my boys learned to ride in less than half an hour using this method. I found right away that holding the bike up while running with them caused them to lean on me and was no help at all.

If main purpose in buying​ one of these is to train your little one to ride a bike, why not save $ and buy a similar sized & weight pedal bike and simply remove the pedals until the day comes when they're ready to have the pedals put back on?

Those are usually a lot heavier and therefore more difficult for a toddler to manage. Having a dedicated balance bike also comes in handy as your older child moves to a pedal bike the younger one uses this. There are other perks, Google is your friend 🤝

Exactly! I bought a convertible one before, but it's too heavy for my little one even without the pedals. Balance bikes are best for 2-3 year olds!

For my son, he had a hard time balancing, and turning while not looking at his feet. This took that away. He just had to balance and turn.

Training wheels are a crutch, and it takes longer for kids to learn to bike correctly than a balance bike does.
