Balance Bikes Help Kids Develop Early Skills
Though they've been used for decades in Europe to help teach kids how to ride a bicycle, balance bikes are just starting to catch on in the United States.
These Smart Balance Bikes from Smart Gear are pedal-free and help develop a child's balance and coordination as they sit and walk or run with the bike by pushing with their feet. If the bike starts to fall, kids instinctively use their feet to regain their balance.
Once they've gained some momentum and balance control, they can lift their feet up and start cruising around.
Made from eco-friendly wood and non-toxic glues and finishes, these bikes come in a variety of styles that are sure to appeal to boys and girls.
Available at Amazon for $71.68 and up.
