    <p>..sheesh I have no idea. Yes she loves toys, but we have a good assortment. Do you have any good ideas? She pretty much loves everything. From pretend play to stuffed animals to bikes, trikes, horsies, painting... I'm more interested in toys that hopefully won't be uninteresting within a few...

    <p>My husband may be getting a job on Kwajalein, a tiny military base island in the Marshall islands. I really don't want to go, but we might, so I'm trying to wrap my head around how we might be able to do this before we find out. (Please don't make us go! <span...

    <p>I might get a lot of replies saying I am ungrateful and/or selfish for this post but I really feel bad about this already..</p> <p> </p> <p>Basically I have told my parents 'No thankyou' when they've offered to get DS a bike.  I've had a look at the one they want to get him and its lovely -...
  7. Family Safety
    <p>My son will be two in July of this year. I'm thinking he might enjoy a balance bike, but I watched some videos of little ones zipping around in those things and now I'm wondering how safe they are for the very young. Seems to me that at three his bones would be stronger for the inevitable...

    <p>Here's a question in anticipation of spring (and holiday gift giving!). I have a currently 16 month old, who is very physical. At what age did you give your LO a first bike? A tricycle or a bicycle with training wheels? My older DD was late with physical activities, so I'm not sure, but I...

  11. The Childhood Years
    <p>Anyone have a balance bike?  Is is worth the $$?  My dd will be 3 in the fall, but she's very coordinated and I think she might enjoy it more than a tricycle, especially since her big brother is learning to ride a real bike.  Is there a particular brand that's good?  How many years can a kid...

    <p>Hi - My son will be 4 next month. His older brothers (7 and 9) do a lot of bike riding on a dead end street in our neighborhood and of course the youngest wants to join in the fun. </p> <p> </p> <p>My youngest son has never been very athletic. He can ride a tricycle, but he's not great at...

    <p>I really don't know much about this topic, but I know my 19month old is ready to go!  What brand would you recommend?? <img alt="bikenew.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/bikenew.gif"></p>
  14. Life with a Toddler
    <p>My son's 2nd birthday is on Saturday.  Originally my DH and I wanted to get him a bike, a two wheeler with training wheels.  We brought him to the store to try out bikes to get the right size, but he didn't know how to peddle.  Now I'm worried I'm going to get him a bike that he will never...

    <p>Which Balance bike did your 2 yr old enjoy.  I'm trying to decide between the Kazam Balance Bike and the Strider Balance Bike.  I really like the foot rest on the Kazam ,but wonder if it will be too big for a 2 yr old.  It looks like it is recommended for ages 3 -5??  Thanks for your...

    <p>Hi! I think we are going to get DD a balance bike for her 2nd birthday. It's not until Feb but I want to be on the lookout for sales. Do you have a brand you reccomend (or don't!) for little ones. She tried her friends bike and was able to move it along on her tiptoes which makes me think...

    Christmas and DS's 2nd birthday are a few months away. We have a number of consignment sales in our area coming up, so I would love to pick up gifts there if possible. He loves trucks, and has just discovered Legos (the Duplo size). I'm looking for some other new ideas.
  20. The Childhood Years
    My son is almost 4.5 and I'm wondering if it would be too late to get one. He's got a 2 wheeler with trainers but relies completely on the trainers to ride (no sense of balance on a bike). I think he'd benefit huge from a balance bike but I have to convince dh. Think it's worth it?
