Highly suggest a balance type bike for small children. We had strider bikes. When they could stand and walk around 14-18 mths, they were pushing themselves around on the bike. My son was gliding down the street and hills when he was 2. He transitioned easily to a bike with no training wheels around 3-4 years old. My daughter was riding a bike with no training wheels 2 weeks before she turned 4. It took me about 10 minutes to help her pedal and then she was off. It really is a game changer in teaching children to ride.

It's the best way for a kid to learn how to ride a bike and not to be messed up by training wheels or trikes later on, which actually slows down the learning process, unlike what most people believe. It will be an easy and natural progression to real bicycles with pedals once they get the balancing part figured out.

Awesome deal for the price, AND it includes a helmet! Great job, OP 👍
Used to work in a bike shop. You can do the balance bike thing without buying a balance bike if you want to save money. This method works better than balance bikes because they know how to pedal when thy actually try to ride. We would teach kids to ride with normal bikes.

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. As soon as they can pedal and brake they are ready to move on.

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 by 3.

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

That said this is a good price if you want the extra bike.

I have the red flyer balance bike, bought for my daughter around her 3rd birthday. She hardly looks at the thing, much less touches it. Her 18mo younger brother has expressed some interest but he's not tall enough to reach the ground even w seat at lowest setting. They both fall back to her pink tricycle that she will soon outgrow but has mastered and he refuses to pedal.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to get my daughter off the stupid tricycle and onto the balance bike? I'm sure if she saw me and/or mom actually riding a bike that would be a good start
Tell her that it's time for the tricycle to be put away and her to learn to ride a big girl bike.

We did that when our 3yo transitioned from a balance bike to a pedal bike. She was so upset to have to give it up. So over the course of a few days I reminded her that we'd be putting it away soon and to start saying goodbye. Then the day before I straight let her know the balance bike would be put away tomorrow. Then the day came. I had her say goodbye to it and then hung the balance bike up in storage to wait for our newborn at the time to get big enough to use it.

This may not work for you at all or may work perfectly. We've found that these little humans just want some semblance of control and input into decisions that impact them rather than just being blindsided with a unilateral decision.

When my kid was like 7 i just bought a small kid bike without training wheels to teach balance, if they can sit on it really doesn't matter and it doesn't need to be a balance bike, any small bike. She took forever to learn before using this technique and this was before they even made these things.

Our two kids resisted riding bikes without training wheels. I ended up doing what you mentioned and removed the pedals. Within 3 days both kids were riding a bike. It's amazing how beneficial a balance bike is.

Have them ride the actual bike. While hold on to it for a few seconds, and then let go. They will instinctively learn.

Some kids are quicker or slower than other.

Strider makes them all the way up to adult size.
We got both of our kids started riding a Woom 1 balance bike around 18 months. Woom is the only brand I'm aware of that includes a hand brake on their balance bikes. This gives the kids additional control and teaches them how to use it when they graduate to a real bike.
