What’s more classic than finding a bicycle under the tree Christmas morning? If your kid is old enough to walk but not ready for a bike with pedals, there’s no better introduction to bicycling than a Strider Balance Bike.
Since both feet are on the ground, the rider gets to move at the pace that makes them feel comfortable, whether that be at walking pace or faster. The best part of the balance bike is that the rider masters the fundamentals of balancing, leaning, and steering without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels.
If you’re going to give a bike, don’t forget to include a helmet! We like the Bell Toddler Helmet because you can adjust it for the perfect fit and it has extended rear coverage for extra protection.
