Our just turned 2 year old was able to get on it and ride without any worry about falling over. It barely makes him balance at all and the wheels do not allow him to go very fast.
While this is primarily for my 2 year old, we thought it would be useful for our 4 year old daughter who is well under the weight requirement. She has had a difficult time transitioning from training wheels on her bike and we hoped this would give her the confidence she needed to make the transition. Unfortunately her legs are too long and the wheels are so wide that balancing is not an issue. There is no way to adjust the height of this bike.
Unfortunately, both kids prefer their plasma cars and rarely play with this.
The quality is also not as good as the plasma car.
If you are looking to buy something fun to ride, I would highly recommend the plasma car.
If you are looking to give your child confidence with balancing a two-wheeled bike, I would recommend a balance bike with thinner wheels.
NOTE: I put a video up of my 2 year old to show it in action.
1. The 2 yr old sat on it, stared at it and pushed it but didn't move very far at all. Bored within five minutes and never rode it again. I purposely kept it out in the open for over two months and was curious as to why the thing had absolutely no appeal.
2. The 3 yr old sat on it a few times as a seat in front of the television. Didn't like it either as it was apparently too slow. "Why doesn't it go?" Used it on the carpeted areas to generate static shock though.
3. The 4 yr old -- forget it.
I took the bike outside several times and even once to the park, same effect. No dice.
My suggestion is that this toy bike should be more free moving and have more "travel." My 4 yr old and his 7 yr old cousin are obsessed with those razor scooters which give me a heart attack every time I see them, but when you push them they are a bit more free-floating because of the ball-bearings and soft rubber wheels. This toy would benefit with a bit more fun factor as this is just plastic on plastic on cement/floor/tile/whatever.
Too much plastic friction and not enough go. Lots of static electricity shock to boot when it was used in the house and traveled across carpeted areas. Honestly, the static shock part might have been the most fun.
We also have several of those plasma cars and they're always being used in races. THAT is a great product. This ... needs to be rethought.
It's absolutely ridiculous to imagine a child up to 55 lbs getting any entertainment value out of this. I guess if your 8 year old steps on it it won't break, but don't imagine it would provide years of entertainment. It says 18 months and up, and by 30 months my daughter was already too old for it, so that's a really limited amount of fun time, assuming you get any at all.
Really, this doesn't even deserve the name of "balance bike," which implies at least some physical challenge and educational benefit. The far, far superior Skuut Wooden Balance Bike does just this, and truly teaches the kind of balance a child needs for bike riding down to young toddlers. The PlasmaBike claims that this is somehow better because if the child stops the bike will not fall over, but with a true balance bike, the child is essentially standing while straddling the bike, and the bike is held up by the child.
Really, if your child is 2 or up, do yourself a favor and get a Skuut bike instead of this one.Read more ›
