UPDATE POST 10!
Ds has had a balance bike sense he was 2.5. He turned 4 in July and we got him a regular bike for his birthday, we actually just ordered it today and it will be here next week (had to special order it, because he wanted the purple one!). Its a 16", and ds is 37" tall so a pretty tiny guy, but we got him one that has a lower frame and its very light weight.
He is GREAT with his balance, which is why we decided to get him a regular bike, but he has never had anything with pedals on it.
Is there any trick to teaching kids to pedal? When he tried it in the store he kept going backwards and forwards, which didn't work!
