another option would be one of those 2 wheeled scooters. Much cheaper and would be fun to keep around even after you DC learn to ride a 2 wheel bike.
We did this with DD. It worked perfectly. After riding her scooter for a whole summer, it was literally 5 minutes and she was riding her bike.
This is the one she has.
She still uses her scooter just as much as her bike.
|I could never figure out what the point of a separate balance bike was. We got dd a used small bike with petals when she was 4yo. She rode it around the driveway for a few days using her feet to push it. Then once she mastered the balancing part, she used the petals. It was not a problem to just keep her legs clear of the petals until she was ready to use them. If the bike is small enough that they can get their feet on the ground, it should be fine. I also think training wheels make it very hard for kids to learn to ride bike without.|
or could I just remove the pedals from a regular bike to make a balance bike?
