Islabikes (again – yay! – Rothan for small toddlers?
Toddler North is tiny for her age and so, at 26 months, just about has an inside leg measurement of 29-30cm*.
The Rothan is specified as requiring a minimum 30cm inside leg.
Anyone had much joy with a child on one? Or are there better suited alternative?

She’ll be fine.Posted 5 years ago
Stoner Jr was scooting 5-10yrds before his 2nd birthday.
Make sure they arent wearing baggy gusset trousers/skirts though for a while, makes it harder for them to slide back on the seat even when it’s slammed.
She’ll be tall enough in a few weeks given the rate they grow anyway 🙂puppypowerSubscriber
My son was smaller than recommended height when he got his at 2, he’s a proper shortie. It took him a few months to get the hang of it, partly down to the height issue, but partly that he wasn’t really any good! Though I can’t remember his inside leg measurement but I think they have an overall height measurement and he was significantly under it? So if she’s almost there it will probably be ok. He was also under height for the Cnoc he has now but could ride that straight away.
Personally I would just get it, but I think the Puky ones might come up a bit smaller?Posted 5 years agoStonerSubscriber
You might feel that way as a Junior member of middleclasstrackworld, but for proper 8th Dan level middleclassness you must eschew the notion of kids bikes being presents at all and treat them as necessities. Little Hermione needs a new bike regardless of the timing of Christmas or Birthdays so she should have one 🙂Posted 5 years agotinsyMember
If she is little & you dont mind getting a really small balance bike & then moving onto a Rothan then the TinyBike is worth a punt.
This pic is seat up a bit on the tinybike, & if modified you can get them lower still & still not have really high bars like the Rothan or Hotwalk have.Posted 5 years ago

That’s the way it works in our house! 😀
I found it took both Tyreds Jr a wee while to get to grips with the idea of actually getting on the Rothan – both liked wheeling it about the house for a while first, while I hopped about frustratedly above them. Bought ours while Tyred Jr (the elder) was still 1.Posted 5 years ago
