I was very skeptical..did not understand the no pedal thing but gave it a try since target has a great return policy..my toddler loves it, I like that it accommodates a growing child.

The Strider bike is amazing. The balance and coordination our two year old learned riding this bike made for a "big boy" bike without training wheels. I have bought this for a nephew who just turned two. Best beginner bike available.

My little girl just skipped training wheels entirely. When her big brother was 4, he only need training wheels for a week after his time with a Strider balance bike. Now it's the youngest's turn to learn to stride!

I purchased this bike for my 2 year old for Christmas and he loves it!!! My husband loves the camo. He loves riding around the house (can't wait till it is nice outside )and i love the confidence that he has while walking/riding around on the bike gives him. The only issue we are having is keeping his two older brothers off it. Are 6 year old has already asked if he can have one too!!!!

When I first bought a strider bike for my daughter back in 2007, I thought it was crazy to buy such an expensive toy. I finally caved after talking to several moms who said they were the best! I am so glad that I listened. Both my kids have grown up with STRIDERS. My daughter got her strider when she was 2 and my son (who is 8 years younger than my daughter) starting riding his as he started to walk near his first birthday. My daughter used her STRIDER nonstop for 3 years and transitioned to a peddle bike in under 5 minutes with no training wheels. I remember learning to ride a bike was so stressful. My daughter never had to deal with that. When my son was born, we put it on our BABY REGISTRY because we knew how much my daughter loved her bike. Honestly most of the things I buy my kids are used sparingly. If I listed all of the items I have purchased my children (FROM BIRTH), the only thing they have used more than their STRIDER bikes is their bed - and that is debatable given how much they are on these bikes. My daughter used her strider bike solidly everyday for 3+ years. My son uses his daily! Part of the reason we got so much use out of them, is that I allowed them to use them both indoors and out. If you plan to really really use them outside I almost would recommend getting two - one for indoor use and one for outdoor use. We live in Chicago, and with the cold winters we just let them roll around inside on them. I honestly would recommend these bikes to anyone! They are light, but VERY sturdy. I never write reviews, but a good product deserves praise!
