How young is too young for a balance bike [over excited dad content]
Peabrain fail. My son was not 87cm at 19 months when he was big enough for the puky lrm. That was his height a year later... So he was about 81cm I think.
I bought a 2nd hand Isla Rothan when my son was 1 and he's 3 now but still hasn't really taken to it. a combination of having far too short legs for a long time and getting a scooter for his 2nd birthday I think means that going to the bike is a bit of a backwards step.
It's a real bone of contention in our house as I never wanted him to have a bl00dy scooter in the first place but the wife insisted on it and the in-laws bought it for him. Now the wife wants to get him something with stabilizers so he can learn to ride that way - I despair sometimes.
Just waiting for my wee lads first balance bike to role off a boat from the US.
He's nearly 16 months and has been walking since 12 months. The Strider balance bikes are good from about 18 months and I reckon his legs are just long enough to start him off. Can't wait.
He's a bit of a nutter diving off stuff so need to find a small enough helmet now to go with it.
We hadn't thought of getting our 14 month old a bike until yesterday when my wife went to buy me a couple of bits from the bike shop and little Miss sat on a run along trike then scooted off round the shop. My wife being decisive just bought it so by the time i got home she met me at the gate on a bloody BIKE ! Awesumz. She isn;t walking other with her little trolley but she is mighty close.
