The summer can be an exciting time for your little one to learn new skills. But, it can also be frustrating when friends & siblings are more advanced then they are. From my own personal experience, I have learned the number one skill that kids need to really get moving on bikes and scooters is CONFIDENCE! Of course, before they can feel confident that they can do it, they need to learn balance and coordination.
Strider Balance Bikes can help your child as young as 18 months old learn how to ride a two-wheeler. How?
- The no-pedal design allows children to feel comfortable by having their feet on the ground.
- This design will help your child completely skip over bikes with training wheels and tricycles.
- Easy to control and steer.
- They are light-weight, making them easy for your child to pick them up and foster independence.
- Comes with 2 seats: The mini-seat for children 18-36 mo and then the extra-long seatpost for those 36-60 mo.
- There are no pedals or chains to get in the way or confuse the child as he is learning to balance.
- Plastic tires mean they will never go flat! We learned the hard way this summer that flat tires can impair a child’s learning!
- The padded footrest allows your child to gain the confidence and balance of riding as they glide along.
- To stop, they put their feet right back on the ground. I have noticed with my son on a regular two-wheeler, that this is an instinctual habit.
It’s awesome how Strider Balance Bikes focuses on your child having FUN and enjoying the hobby of bike riding. My husband and I spent almost 3 summers trying to get my son comfortable. It can be frustrating for both the child and parent. Kids can sense your impatience and frustration immediately, making them feel the same. The Strider Bike allowed my youngest to get right on the bike and be out there with the big kids!
Right out of the box, the Strider required NO tools to put it together. Which was easy for this mom to do all on her own!
