For children, learning to ride a bike can be a challenge, especially once their training wheels are off! The Strider Running Bike was created to help toddlers learn balance and coordination, and give them the confidence they need to ride a big kid bike! The concept is to teach the Child those important skills before pedaling....when you take the pedaling out of the situation they can focus on gaining the skills they need to ride a 2 wheel bike!
Strider Running Bikes are great for kids ages 1-4. We were sent one to try out for ourselves, for my 2 1/2 year old daughter. My husband put the bike together in only 5 minutes....very easy to assemble! Which is great when you have a squealing and impatient two year old next to you :) She got on the Bike and at first was looking for the peddles! It frustrated her at first, and she got a little crabby (she is 2 after all:)) But we explained it to her, and kept letting her try again. She later figured out how to walk with her bike and started to enjoy it more. I just read on the Strider website that the first thing Kids usually do is grab he handle bars, straddle the bike, and walk without sitting on the seat. Reading this made me feel much better, because that's what my daughter does LOL!! Pretty soon she will be learning to push herself along, and sit down and enjoy the ride! I am confident that once Spring comes again and we can actually go OUTSIDE she will really enjoy this bike!
I also loved that the bike was lightweight - it weighs 7 pounds. If it tips, my daughter is strong enough to hold onto it and pull it back up. It's not clunky, it's sleek and attractive! It also comes with an adjustable seat so you can find the perfect fit for your growing Child.
