Trek's Kickster gets the next generation learning their balance early, and way faster than with training wheels. The low saddle lets little legs reach the ground and zoom along. A built-in steering limiter prevents them from turning too sharply, increasing confidence. A foot rest lets them try balancing as they get better. And the lightweight aluminum frame sports a height-adjustable post and handlebar so the Kickster can grow with your little superstar.
My daughter tried for two years to learn to balance with training wheels. After an hour on this balance bike, she got it! It was very exciting. My son (2 1/2),daughter (5), and neighbor kids ride the balance bike quite often, just goofing around in the driveway even though they all have regular bikes.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
