  • Strider bikes are a great first step to biking! 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 when she was two. Oct 16, 2020

    Son moved up from the yolo balance bike to this and he loves it. Goes faster. Oct 14, 2020

  • my 3 year old hates this, but we live on a hill. My 1 year old loves trying to ride it. Sep 01, 2020

  • These are so fun! My son loves his and even gets brave enough to balance with his feet off the ground. Great bike. Allows him to feel in control easily too. Aug 20, 2020

  • We have this on a rocker base. Started using at 8 months. He needed help sitting on it at first but could mount and dismount on his own by 10 months. Now rides and rocks like crazy at 14 months. Fun! Jul 01, 2020

  • This has been a game changer for our 2 year olds balance capabilities. It’s lightweight, sturdy and easy to handle for a small child. Highly recommend this for around age 1.5-2. Jun 10, 2020

  • My 2.5 year old has been zooming around on this balance bike for over a year! Love this balance bike so much! May 30, 2020

    Initially we had one mounted to a rocker base for our twins to use from ~9months up. By 18 months they were at a height where they could touch the floor with their feet. At 2yrs they’re pros! May 25, 2020

  • Good quality balance bike. Got it for our 27 month old who wanted a bike while seeing everyone out riding around during quarantine - she loves the idea of it, but loses interest quickly during use Apr 25, 2020

  • This was a great way to introduce our little to the concept of biking! Jan 31, 2020

  • These bikes are so durable and so great for kids learning to ride. Our first one lasted through 3 of our 4 kids. It was great too because they all were so confident with balancing a bike. Jan 15, 2020

  • Got it at the age of 20 months. Wasn’t a favorite, but we’ll see how LO likes it next summer at the age of 3. The seat height is super easy to adjust. Strider is also supposed to grow with them. Jan 03, 2020

  • My daughter was 3 when she got this bike. She could only ride a tricycle at that time. She is now 5 and can ride a two wheeled bike with no issues. Must buy for any kid learning how to ride a bike Dec 03, 2019

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

  • Great birthday present for my two year old. She caught on to it so quick and zips around on her balance bike after a month or so of practice. Learning to ride a bike with peddles will be easy for her Aug 28, 2019

  • My son really started using this around 2.5 years old. Now 3 months later, he's really fast on this with very rare falls, and he loves it! Aug 20, 2019

    We have the strider pro balance bike on the rocker. My 11 month old loves this bike so far! Seems good quality and lightweight. Aug 19, 2019

  • My 3 year old learned to ride a real bike in 2 months because of this!! we love it! Aug 02, 2019

  • Recently bought this for my sons 2nd Birthday. He has been cruising around on it in the yard,gravel. It’s definitely helping his balance Jul 30, 2019

  • We just got this bike for our tall 16 month old son and he is obsessed! Can't wait to watch him learn how to balance and bike on this! Jul 05, 2019

    Best thing I did for my child! He loves this bike still but went straight from this bike to big bike withtout training wheels at 3 yo! I owe it to this bike Jan 20, 2019

    This is an awesome bike for 2 year olds. They quickly learned how to get se them. These bikes will grow with them until they are ready for a regular bike. Jan 02, 2019

  • I see friends kids having great success and loving these. My daughter wanted nothing to do with hers and was very concerned that her bike didn't have petals like brothers. Great idea, not for my child Jul 16, 2018

  • My older daughter loves to ride her bike! Great first bike to help them learn! Feb 23, 2018

  • My toddler zips around on this balance bike, and it is the source of great joy and amusement. All the kids we know who have one love it. Feb 13, 2018

    I can’t tell the difference in the balance. Bikes but it’s solid! Feb 07, 2018

  • We were given this bike as a gift. My son will be two in March, so looking forward to trying this out! Will update review once we do! Feb 02, 2018

  • We got this as a gift and my 2 year old LOVES it! I believe she can ride a small two wheeler without training wheels because of this bike before she turned 3. She learned to balance and ride Feb 02, 2018

  • Absolutely love this bike! It's very lightweight, convenient to adjust the seat, and my son loves it! Jan 26, 2018

  • My three year old loves riding his "bike" up and down the sidewalk. Jan 15, 2018

  • We have one of these for our daughter, and she was never interested-she went straight into a bike with training wheels. However we have friends whose kids LOVED these! Well made and durable. Jan 12, 2018

    My daughter was terrified to ride without her training wheels until she used the Strider Bike- within two days she was on her own two wheeled bike! Oct 19, 2017

  • Teaches balance without the pedals getting in the way Oct 18, 2017

  • My son has been using this for about a year and it has helped him so much, he is ready for a big boy bike! He glides on it so well and has improved his balance! Oct 05, 2017

    Love the easy [read: no tools] adjustment of seat and handlebars, and the lightweight construction. Def recommend this over training wheels - my 3yo is easily transitioning to pedal-bike. Aug 16, 2017
