This is the best toy-learning tool-you can provide for your children. It fosters their love of being outside sooner than later in their early development and is great exercise.
It has replaced the "blankie" for my youngest, Dane. He loves it and we have to take it wherever we go because he will ride it anywhere.

The Strider™ is an exciting alternative to the "baby bikes" that our son didn't want to ride any longer, such as big wheels and tricycles. It is sturdy, easy to use, and an awesome bike for young kids who can't reach the pedals on a "traditional bike". It is a huge confidence builder for large motor skills. It's also a fun tool for outdoor activity that the whole family can enjoy; now we don't have to wait for the kids to be older as with most other types of sports. Our son thinks it's "cool" and tells everyone he can ride a bike!
Both of our children are learning balance, and Avendah, who is older, is gaining needed confidence because she has control. She, too, is now telling her grandparents and friends that she is learning to ride a bike. We wish we would have had a Strider™ for both of our kids when they were two!!

I just wanted to send a note to say that your bikes are terrific. We bought them as birthday gifts for our two boys (4 and 2) a few weeks ago, and they absolutely love riding them. My four-year-old is practically ready for a pedal bike at this point, and my two-year old is just starting to get the hang of riding the balance bike on his own. I imagine he’ll be gliding down the local hills (like his older brother) in no time at all.
I researched several balance bike options (as well as bikes with training wheels) and I am glad I found the Strider bikes. We were fortunately able to find them after calling a nearby toy store, since I wanted to see them first. I don’t know why other balance bikes don’t have foot rests. Your product is wonderfully designed and very light (light enough for each of the kids to carry them up steps). I couldn’t be happier with this purchase.
