Radio Flyer at Willie world is $32, but very basic. But this one certainly got good looks, & additional specs. Any owners out there to comment?

Not sure if you're joking, but these types of bikes have gained popularity for kids learning to ride. They push with their feet and coast with their feet off the ground. My 3 year old zips all over the place on his and the transition to a pedal bike should hopefully be pretty easy this Christmas.

Kid sits on bike, pushes with feet to make bike go, Flintstones style. Good for small kids since it is low to the ground and they can't really fall off of it, but as they get more comfortable they will push it quicker, including short periods where both feet are off the ground briefly, hence the name balance bike. So it is a good safe way for toddlers to push around a bike which hopefully gets them used to the concept of balancing a real bike when they get older. There is a bunch at my son's daycare and he started riding it around 2 years of age.

I'm doing the exact same thing with my 3 year old. He cruises on his balance bike and is getting a pedal bike for Christmas.

Balance bikes are amazing. My son transitioned to a pedal bike at 1 week after his 4th birthday after using a balance bike for 6 months. The only reason he didn't switch sooner is basically leg strength.

It's 2 wheels and a frame... The kid scoots around Flintstone style... Don't drink the punch and think you need more expensive options...

Used to work in a bike shop. We would teach kids to ride with normal bikes with the following method. No need to get a separate balance bike. But still thumbs up because of good price




Step 1: Get a standard 12" bike (or appropriate sized) with training wheels. Let the kid use it until they can pedal and brake adequately.

Step 2: Remove training wheels and pedals (one pedal is reverse threaded). Lower seat to lowest setting. Get them to use it as a balance bike. Once they can coast down small short hills they are ready to move on.

Step 3: put pedals on and raise seat. Put seat where they still can touch both feet on the ground at the same time.

This had my son riding on his own without training wheels at 3.

Always use a helmet and other appropriate safety equipment. For both you and your kids.
