  • absolute best bike to learn on. makes for a super easy transition from balance bike to real bike (no training wheels ever needed) as this teaches them to balance Jan 29, 2023

  • The best beginner bike! Teaches balance and steering while controlling body weight. It’s a super versatile bike, sturdy, and great for backcountry roads. We used in AK and MT and had no problems! Aug 23, 2022

  • Both my sons love using this bike! It's well made and makes them feel like they are riding a "big boy bike" Jul 06, 2022

  • I’m neutral on this, it has only helped a little and my kids can’t seem to get the concept of where to put their feet once it’s moving. May 27, 2022

  • My daughter has gotten so good at riding this that I think we will be going to a pedal bike sooner than we thought. I love how this teaches them to balance on their own before going to a big bike. Apr 16, 2022

  • Balance bikes are the best. So helpful to build the muscles and techniques of bike riding. My bigs have transitioned well to a pedal bike after learning on this. Mar 02, 2022

  • My son is OBSESSED with this bike! He can't keep up with his sisters on their peddle bikes but he sure tries! He even tries to do "tricks" on it! Dec 28, 2021

  • We LOVE our balance bike. I gave it to my son for his 2nd birthday. He was about 2.5 before he started to use it often. Suddenly though, he was ZOOMING! At 3, he rode a bike without training wheels. Dec 24, 2021

  • My so started using his balance bike at 18 months and loves it! Nov 22, 2021

  • My son has thStrider Bike since the age of 1. He started really riding it at the age of 2 & absolutely loves his Strider! At 3 1/2 he went from his Strider straight to a pedal bike, no training wheels Sep 20, 2021

  • The BEST 2nd birthday present! My son loves this and is learning balance, so he can hopefully skip training wheels! Jun 30, 2021

  • I would buy this all over again, we love our strider bike, I believe it really helped the kids learn to ride with no training wheels much faster Jun 14, 2021

  • My toddler loved this! Great for learning balance while also feeling safe because feet touch the ground. Jun 02, 2021

  • Still working on grasping the concept a year later but I remain hopeful Apr 28, 2021

  • My kiddos learned to ride a bike using this after a short period of time. It's been through many children & prob 10 yrs old now & still like new. Ready for when my littlest is old enough. Foam tires. Mar 07, 2021

  • Love this. Bith kids were a bit nervous with first few times but then they were speeding around confidently Jan 28, 2021

    Wonderful first bike! Our son learned to ride his strider balance bike at 2.5 and transitioned seamlessly to a big kid bike with no training wheels at 3.5. Jan 15, 2021

  • This bike is amazing. My son rides it daily and loves it. I need another because he won't share with his little brother. Dec 22, 2020

  • Strider bikes are perfect for kids learning to bike. Our now four year old rides a normal 'big kid' bike no problem and it was super easy to teach her, because she started on a strider! Oct 16, 2020

  • The younger one is better at this than the older one was, but we go for bike rides every week to the park on this. It's light enough for us to carry home when she's too tired, as well! Jul 16, 2020

  • 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

  • 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!
