My son just turned 2 and received this bike for his birthday. He's a big, solid boy and wears 3T clothing tho is still thin enough he can fit into 18M-2T stuff. He is around 37" tall but with a long torso and short legs.
It's taken him a couple weeks to get the hang of things, this mainly due to two things. First off, birthday morning, Daddy accidentally buckles Birthday Boy's chin skin into the helmet buckle ...so it was all over after that... And secondly, my son has a quick temper and is short on patience, which is kind of a must when you learn anything new. He comes by this naturally tho because I was getting annoyed and starting to think about exchanging the bike before it even arrived, ha.
Why? Because this bike, beautiful and glossy tho it may be, is longer and heavier than other balance bikes on the market. This larger size therefore causes the bike to be harder to handle for younger kids even if they're bigger - even if a 2 year old is the size of a 3 or even 4 year old, he's still developmentally a 2 year old.
Also, because it doesn't have a steering limiter thingy on its rather large handlebars, they can (and DO) freely swing about or twist around if you haven't got a good grip in precisely the right place. My toddler was getting furious trying to just get on his bike and I was getting frustrated because I felt I'd wasted my money..but finally, we started to figure things out. We didn't pressure him to ride the bike but left it standing propped up in the house where he could easily climb on himself if and when HE chose. And we watched some videos online of other kids riding their balance bikes and this has helped my son gain a little confidence and see how it's done.
One last thing, it's taken a bit of trial and error on my part to get the seat the right height for my boy and had it too tall at first. Thankfully, the quick release makes it easy to move the seat up and down as needed.
We do cloth diapers and he's still in the midst of potty training...so if he's wearing a bulky diaper, his inseam is less of course, but when he's wearing training pants he rides better. So if you happen to cloth diaper your very large child as I do, be aware that it'll make a difference in the ease of bike riding. :p
Gorgeous and well designed! Good size and weight for bigger kids. Much steeper learning curve for younger kids (even if they're bigger sized). Heavier and bigger handlebars are more difficult for smaller kids to manage.Quick release seat makes height adjustment super easy. Will grow with your child!
The construction is well thought out for what and who would be using this bike. The handlebars are rubbery and easy to grip for tiny slippery hands. The seat is cushiony enough that her bottom won't get sore from riding it non-stop (she asks to ride this EVERYDAY). The tires are the best part - another reason we purchased this one. They are not the cheap made foam tires you find on most balance bikes that will wear out in a month of heavy riding, but rather honeycomb rubber that never require air - again perfect as any delay in her ability to ride this bike (to inflate tires) would certainly result in full blown tantrum. She rides on both pavement, concrete, grass, and dirt with no tire issues. It's sturdy in weight yet light enough that when she tires half-way around the neighborhood and no longer wants to ride it you can carry it one handed back home while pushing siblings in the stroller with the other hand. One of our best buys yet for our children.
If you want your young and smaller toddler to learn to ride a balance bike, this isn't the bike for you. I'd consider one of the cheaper wooden "hipstery" bikes that kids as young as 2 can easily handle. But if you want something well built, and perhaps able to last through more than one kid, this is the better option. (I am currently pregnant I hope that the second one will be able to learn on this, too!)
Some other reviews have mentioned that the bike was too tall for their child and their legs were not long enough yet. I found with both of my 2 year olds that the bike was perfect. For the boy, we put the seat to the lowest setting and it was fine for him. For my niece, we actually had to raise the seat up (she's tall for a 2 yo). The biggest hang up at this age came from the weight of the bike. The boy needed assistance and was not quite strong enough to hold it up on his own. My niece was able to hold it up fine on her own and walk around with it. She just needed help in picking the bike up when it was on it's side on the ground. After a couple days, my niece was getting much more comfortable with the bike and I'm sure that she will soon be whizzing around. I will see her again in about 8 months when she is almost 3 yo, so I'll be sure to provide an update.
I would not hesitate to buy this bike again for another toddler.

I selected this bike over the Strider because of the rubber tires (that don't need inflating due to their honeycomb design). The Strider has foam tires, and I've seen plenty of complaints about them disintegrating after prolonged use.
The body of the bike is very sturdy, and the paint job seems to be holding up quite well (in spite of being dropped when my son sees something interesting he wants to investigate, like ants or a leaf or a pine cone or.... you get the idea).
The seat is padded, which is a rarity among balance bikes, and the rubberized handle bars are easy for my son to hold and keep his hands in place. The seat height is also a snap to adjust, which is a real bonus (especially when you feel like your child grows every few days). There is a lever you pull, slide the seat up / down, and push the lever closed. No tools required.
This bike also comes pre-assembled in the box. All you have to do is make a small adjustment to the handlebars, and the bike is ready to go.
There are a couple of cons to this bike. The first is that it is relatively heavy for a balance bike. The weight is partly due to its sturdy construction, but it might be difficult for smaller children to maneuver, although my 2.5 year old had no trouble (he is 90th percentile for height and weight, however). Also it does get heavy when you, the parent, has to carry it around once your child decides he/she doesn't want to ride it anymore. The other con has to do with the bolts that hold the wheels to the frame of the bike. This is the only area of the bike that has shown any signs of wear from being dropped repeatedly on the pavement, since the bike tends to rest on the heads of these bolts. It has made them a little bit sharp, and so could be a scratching hazard (although my son has yet to scratch himself on them).
I have two boys, and want to pass this balance bike on to my second when he's old enough, so I needed something sturdy that would last. It looks like the MyKick fits the bill - after 3 months of use and abuse, it still looks brand new. I would highly recommend anyone in the market for a balance bike strongly consider this contender.
