Strider PREbike

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

imageDesigned 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.


Sister is now a fan of the Strider, too. 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?

About Virginia

Hi there! My name is Virginia, and I am the author/owner of That Bald Chick. I am a Christian, wife, mother of three, full time homemaker, homeschooler, and ministry volunteer in addition to being a blogger. In my free time *cough* I enjoy reading, writing, taking walks with my family, and listening to music.


  1. I love it in both colors…maybe little man would love this? He wants to do everything now! (Even change his little brother’s diaper, lol)

  2. Looks like a good bike for a little one.

  3. If they aren’t too expensive get a second. I know my kids stil try to ride their little brothers and they are 10 and 12!

  4. They are nice bikes.

  5. This looks like a great bike for kids!

  6. I love that she carries it! lol

  7. She is the cutest!! Love that bike, and can’t wait to get one for my son!

  8. That looks like a great way to get used to the feeling of riding.

  9. Aww they are both so cute! I say let them share it for now unless a second one wouldn’t break you!

  10. We had one. My daughter never really got into it.

  11. That is an awesome bike!

  12. This would be perfect for our little man. He’s about to turn 4 yet unsure about pedals.

  13. I think one as an Easter gift is a great idea. They look like they are having fun

  14. We have the same issue right now too! I think if you get another one they might both play together and enjoy! You can always sell that afterwards!

    That looks awesome

  16. This is a nice bike. We have a wooden Scoot bike but it is starting to fall apart, my son was not the most gentle person with the bike and just tossed it when he got off…that is what you do when you are 3, I guess. He loved it and he looks like your son, riding it. He last year 4 1/2 just got onto a regular bike and biked off!!! It’s so great. After the balance bike you should not put your child on a bike with training wheels, they will then “de-learn” what they learned on the balance bike. With the balance bike they learn to lean the right way, but with training wheels they learn to lean the wrong way and will have a harder time to learn to ride the bike without the wheels.

  17. Wow…it looks awesome for my 4-year old son. I’m sure he’ll love it specially the green one.

  18. My nephews would like this. And, love the 1st and 4th pics! 🙂
