I have been thinking about getting a balance bike for my son for Christmas (he'll be 2 weeks shy of 2 years). I wanted to know if anybody here has a balance bike for their kid? What kind? When did they get it? And is it worth the money?

thanks!

My friend got a skuut for her son's 4th bday and he has no intrest, and neither do any of the other's on playdates, including my son who is very athletically inclined. I think if it's an intrest to the child then it will benifit them, but if not...

I have heard that you can take the peddals off of a regular bike and get your child used to the balance. Then when you put them back on, the kids are supposed to just take off.

I have a friend that bought one for her little boy when he was about 2. He's almost 4 now and though it took him awhile to figure it out, he flies around on it now and LOVES it. I'm definitely starting our son out on one next summer. So, he'll be closer to 3. The kind they have is a skuut and it's around $100.00.
