I would highly recommend this bike. We bought it for our 2 year old and he is now 2 1/2 and he loves it. He rides all over our neighborhood and does really well with balancing on it. This is a sturdy bike and well worth the money.
This is VERY light weight and very durable. Other balance bike are too heavy for a small child to learn on. Can you imagine trying to push around a bike that weighed as much as you do?? Not fun. This is the best. My child will not go anywhere unless we bring THIS bike, and we have tons of bikes and scooters and stuff. He has literally put miles on this bike. I'm buying a second one for my daughter.
