My 4-year-old is showing so much interest in riding a bike. It is so cute! But, he is having a hard time balancing and using the pedals on a regular bike. So, we decided to try him out with a balance bike this Christmas! He will be so excited to find it under the tree!

Is A Balance Bike Right For Your Child?
You know your child is ready for a balance bike when they show an interest in riding a bike, like my 4-year-old, but they are having issues with the pedals.
With a push bike, children are able to focus on the most important part of riding a bicycle…balance. If a child learns how to ride on a pre-balanced bicycle such as a bike with training wheels or a tricycle, they become too dependent on them and develop bad riding habits. In addition, these riding styles don’t offer the same riding experience as a Balance Bike.
One of the great things about push bikes is that they allow each child to learn and progress at a pace that they are comfortable with. As kids gain confidence, they will feel encouraged to balance on two wheels. If they ever lose balance, they can simply place their feet back on the ground.
Balance Bikes are made for children ages 3+ and are available in 12” metal or plastic frames with six different color options. The metal toddler bikes come with rear end handbrakes and the lightweight plastic toddler bikes weigh only 4.9 lbs and are water resistant.
You can purchase a Balance Bike online at https://balancebike.com/. They retail for only $79.99.
