In December 2010, we gave Mister a Strider PREbike for his birthday (you can see his reaction here) which I had received for review. We initially got the balance bike because he was uncertain on his other bike. We kept it because he loved it.
About the Strider
Designed for Toddlers, ages 1 – 5, the Strider™ running bike is lightweight, easy to control and
features an adjustable seat and handlebars to accommodate a growing child. Most importantly,
the Strider teaches your child balance, coordination and develops glittering confidence.
And the Strider is steady, stable and safe. At the first feeling of instability, your child will
instinctively place his feet securely on the ground. So there are no “tricycle tip-overs” or
“training-wheel wobbles” that stir-up a fear, hesitancy, or dislike of bike riding.
Sixteen months later, Mister still loves his Strider.
If Mister isn’t on it, you will find her riding…
or carrying it.
Is she not just the cutest?
I’ve debated getting a second Strider, as it is definitely one of those toys that we wish we had two of! It would certainly reduce the number “No, it’s MY turn!” arguments!
They come in pink…
Part of me says it would be an awesome Easter gift. The other part of me says he’ll outgrow it soon enough. I just can’t decide… get a second one, or let them continue to fight share the one they have.
What do you think?
