Fast forward to what has been happening in foreign countries for a long time! Why spend money on training wheels, and having overly-anxious children when they already know how to pedal a tricycle? Learning to "pedal" is learned on tricycles, and is easy to do one a child has graduated to a 2-wheeled bike, ........but "balance" doesn't come as naturally when training wheels make it a 4-wheeled bike.
A good 'balance bike' is easily adjustable for the capability and the size of a child. Small tykes can sit on the seat and 'walk' their way around, while older tykes begin to realize they can choose to 'lift' their feet and feel the thrill of "coasting", with no pedals going around to hurt their legs. Recent visitors in my home (from France) brought their children's (age 2 & 4) "Balance Bikes" along on the trip, skipping the "tricycle stage" and the 'training wheels' stage. Both children were happily 'balanced' while enjoying scooting around on the balance bikes, and rarely touched the ground with their feet, except for gathering some (small amount of) speed forward, or coming to a stop. Because a balance bike won't gather more speed than a child's feet can provide, it seems that their feet seem to touch the ground less, and prevent more accidents from the beginning. Once a child has mastered true balance on their own, ...... then they will be ready for a bicycle that has pedals, gathers speed, and is more likely to make scrapes and breaks!
I've since bought these for all of my grandchildren! I think they need balance before pedals, and this solved the problem for me! I chose the Radio Flyer brand because it's always had a good reputation, is reasonably priced, and Radio Flyer brand items are usually considered family keepsakes, rarely losing their value and memories through multiple generations!
I like the fact that it is adjustable and that the tires are filled with air! This was also very easy to put together. The seat isn't completely stable, but doesn't move too much.
bike with training wheels when he was three, but it took a long time for him to figure out how to move the pedals. I bought him a balance bike on April 5th of this year. It took him just a few days to figure out how to make this bike go fast. Three weeks after riding the Radio Flyer bike he was going down hills with his feet up and balancing it the entire time. On May 2nd his dad decided to take off his training wheels on his bigger bike, and after 30 minutes he was riding up and down his street on his big bike without training wheels. It's incredible to see him riding without training wheels at 3 1/2 years old. He's also a smaller child, but a very determined little guy! I wanted to buy him a balance bike the first time, but my daughter and her husband wanted a bike with training wheels. Now that they see what he has done, they believe in the concept of the balance bike. I am so glad that I decided on the Radio Flyer. It was inexpensive compared to so many others, but the quality for the price was remarkable. I wanted the air tires and they proved to be the best! He still loves riding his Radio Flyer even though he has mastered the bigger bike. He absolutely loves the bell too! You can't go wrong with Radio Flyer!!!!
