We have this kettler one with a handle. We bought it on craigslist for $40 and it looked brand new when we got it.
Micah had (well, still does ) a fascination with bicycles just before he turned 2. I found a small (10") balance bike that he absolutely loves! It was the best gift I could have ever given him. He loves being able to ride a bike that is like the big kids. He is already balancing and pulling his feet up to glide along for 15 to 20 seconds at a time.
We got a kettler. It is very well made, but for us it had been more of a stroller than a bike for DS. We got it when he was not quite 2 and now at 29mo he can just barely reach the peddles and can't peddle it on his own yet. His legs are kinda short for his height, but he is able to peddle on other tricycles. And an almost 4yo friend is also unable to peddle the kettler- B/C of the free coast mechanism yu have to peddle about a 1/4 turn before it starts to work and for an inexperienced peddler (DS) or an impatient one who won't listen (friend) it can be tricky.. I'm sure a kid that got what was going on would not have trouble with it. And come to think of it part of the problem might be that they are trying to ride on the lawn. I should take it to a paved park and see how they do.
We did just get DS a balance bike though and he was off & running on that right away. I wish I'd just gotten a wagon or something for pushing/pulling DS in and skipped the push trike. He used his radio flyer tiny trike way more.
But if you do want one, definitely check ebay for deals on used ones! We got ours at 1/2 price and including all of the accessories. (Bell, seat belt, basket)
