If you have ever been curious about a balance bike, it is a pretty interesting contraption – I mean a bike with no pedals? Weird! It’s weird, but it’s so great – they learn to balance on two wheels by pushing themselves off with their feet. We are planning on buying a proper two wheel bike, with pedals (King refers to this as a big boy bike) very soon. Since his balancing on the old balance bike is pretty amazing (probably better then mine since I haven’t road a bike, since I don’t remember) we are going to go straight into two wheels – no training wheels. It should be pretty fun/stressful for me (and sad for me, two wheel bike is some serious big boy status) – Harley can’t wait for King to move on up, she wants the balance bike but bad. So if you were ever thinking about a balance bike, two thumbs up from this crowd – and I will update you on how well he does two wheeling (no training wheels in between) when we get there!

PS. our balance bike is from Kettler.

He is so handsome! Those bikes are great! I wish they would have been around when Logan was little! 🙂

Thank you! Really, such a genius idea – such a confidence builder!

So cute! I posted a photo to IG on Sunday of my little guy in this same shirt on his balance bike! The balance bikes are great and I will be interested to hear how the transition goes to a big boy bike.

Balance bikes are the best, my eldest has used one from an early age and then transitioned to a two wheel with pedals when he was only three years old. ( we had our kids close together 14 months apart) and his little bro wanted the balance bike so he got kicked off and put on a pedal one!! I was a little wary to start with but within an hour he had it perfect and could even start off by himself. I attribute this all to the balance bike, it teaches them how to balance around corners, up kerbs and even when just standing still……good luck Kingston I’m sure you will rock it! Ps I freaked out the first time I saw my wee guy in the pedal bike riding down the street he looked about 16 years old!!!

Hi there, in my country (Hungary, Europe) most of the kids has balance bike and so my son had since age 18 months. Now he is 3.5 years and learned to ride a two heeled bike in a minute. So don’t worry it’s the best thing that could happen to your son to learn the the 2 heeled bikeriding and it’s going to be in a blink:) after balance bikeing. Xo Nóra
