  • This bike provides the opportunity to learn to balance prior to thinking about peddling. Our 2.5 year old loves riding it and is getting the hang of balancing. May 20, 2020

  • I wanted to love this. I love the concept of them, but so far my kids have NOT opted to catch on. They just get scared or bored and stop trying. Apr 25, 2020

  • I want to love this, I really do! But neither of my kids have any interest. They just can seem to figure out how to use it, Apr 23, 2020

  • Got this for son when he was 10 months. 13 months now and still loves it! He can’t walk yet so I push him. He really really enjoys it. Great purchase. Can’t wait till he uses it himself! Apr 15, 2020

  • Great in theory, my kids age 2/3 haven’t loved it Apr 02, 2020

  • Still on the fence about this one. My daughter isn't super into it, but we'll keep trying! Jan 16, 2020

  • My toddler (2) has been way more into her scooter and hasn't played with this very much. It fits great though and will last a long time for sure. Dec 18, 2019

    We have two and love them both! Great transitional bike to prepare little ones for riding. Tires are rubber so they won’t deflate on you and can go over multiple types of terrain. A Must have! Dec 12, 2019

  • My son picked up this bike and mastered it quick. Its well made and lightweight to carry if needed Dec 07, 2019

  • Our almost 5 year old absolutely loves this!! He rides it all the time, even through the house! Dec 07, 2019

  • This is the easiest way to teach your child how to balance on a bike. My daughter started out with this right from a tricycle, and had no issue transitioning right to a big kid bike. Dec 03, 2019

  • These bikes are a favorite in our household! Both of my children have been using strider bikes since they were two years old. We completely skipped training wheels because of this balance bike! Nov 30, 2019

  • My daughter loved this. The seat is very adjustable. Great quality. Nov 29, 2019

    My 3YO loves this! She continuously improves her balance every time she rides! She is so fast and starting to glide now, even keeps up with the bigger peddling kids! Ready to skip training wheels! Oct 20, 2019

  • My kids never got the hang of this and went right to a pedal bike with training wheels instead. Oct 15, 2019

  • We absolutely love this bike we have the 12" only regret is not buying the bigger one that has a separate adapter to add pedals when they're bigger Sep 14, 2019

  • Worth every penny! Both my kids rode this bike from 18 months to four years old when they picked up a pedal bike without training wheels in one month. Ergonomic, durable, and super lightweight. Aug 30, 2019

  • My son started riding this when he was two and immediately fell in love. He really never felt a need for training wheels with his pedal bike and has been a bike lover ever since. Aug 03, 2019

  • This is so amazing! Please skip the trike and training wheels, just go straight to the Strider. We put our son on a pedal bike the day he turned 3 (bday present), and he's been riding since. Jun 03, 2019

  • Great way to start learning how to ride a bike. Light weight. And helps remove the future fear of falling. May 30, 2019

  • My oldest loves his even more than his regular bike! I will definitely buy for my other kiddos! Apr 15, 2019

    My son loves this bike!! He can ride it throughout the house or outside!! Apr 10, 2019

  • My son started playing with this at 1 before he turned 3 he was riding a bike with no training wheels. This bike is great for learning balance. It is light weight and easy to bring everywhere. Mar 03, 2019

  • Best purchase for a 3 year old! My daughter used this the summer before she turned 3 (September) and by January is riding a 2-wheeler! Jan 16, 2019

  • Want thia for the future Oct 03, 2018

  • Helps kids learn balance. My son loved this bike forever! Sep 07, 2018

    We didn't get this at first, and then realized our mistake! Within two weeks of riding the strider bike, my daughter had good enough balance that we switched back to a regular bike, and she rode! Aug 04, 2018

  • I don't regret this bike. My daughter has this and she seems to be semi interested in it. She can sort of ride it. But seems more interested in the tricycle Jun 05, 2018

  • I love the concept of this bike, however my kiddo never got the hang of it and ended up never using it. Now he has a bike with training wheels and loves it. Apr 13, 2018

  • My son was riding this independently at 14 months! He loves this more than all of his other toys. Buy a helmet too! Apr 10, 2018

  • My daughter never got comfortable on it. Mar 27, 2018

  • Received this as a gift and I was disappointed that the tires were more plastic than rubber. Feb 15, 2018

  • I really liked this bike. My kid received as a gift but does not seem that interested. Perhaps e was too old for it Jan 24, 2018

    My son did well with this but I don't think it helped him learn how to pedal. He prefers a traditional bike, Jan 22, 2018

    Best little bike ever! Super lightweight, easy for any small child to use. Our son and daughter started a big bike without training wheels at three thanks to these bikes. Nov 29, 2017

  • Bought this for our oldest when he was 3. Bought him a pedal bike when he was 5 and he just got on it and rode away. Skip the training wheels. Our 2nd is riding it now. Oct 22, 2017

  • Q: I'm thinking about getting this for my daughter for her 3rd birthday but she's pretty cautious and has never ridden a tricycle. Should I start with a tricycle or do you think kids are ok going right to a balance bike?

  • I would start out with the balance bike. It teaches them how to hold themselves and steer a bike before pedaling, and is a great confidence booster!
