What training wheels?

A few weeks ago my 3 year old had a neighbor friend over to play. Her bike was sitting in the yard & without hesitation he quickly jumped on and took off down the street. His brothers immediately starting shouting, which got my attention... My 3 year was riding a bike with NO training wheels & he didn't even think about it!
I wish I could say that he's just a fast learner but we actually owe a lot of the credit to the new Strider bike we tested out. It looks like a bike, just with out pedals. I know that sounds odd but this cool invention teaches a child balance. Balance, is all they really need to learn... training wheels just hold them back in the long run. After a few months of actually learning the correct skills, no doubt your 3 year old will be riding a 2 wheeler in no time too! I've been recommending this bike to everyone, you definitely need to check it out...

I love that they have a pink one! :)

Taunya said...

I love the red one!
A couple of years ago my daughter went to a playdate where the child had just learned to ride w/out training wheels and she wanted to know how too. The playdate mom just had taken the pedals off her sons old bike and he practiced the balancing that way. My daughter practiced several times at the playdate and was ready to give it a try when we got home and just like that she was riding her bike. Amazing! Now my son is a little resistant to change and I think this no pedals strider would be the perfect transition bike for him.

Denise said...

My daughter would love the pink one!

I have 2 girls, so we'd definitely pick pink!!!!

Aura said...

That's unbelievable I wish my son would ride a two wheeler. I have been trying so hard to get my 6 year old to give up his training wheels. His favorite color is orange and maybe the strider can help, or at least help his little brother.
