Balancing

ED9A9329Had to share some photos of little Reed getting the hang of his balance bike. HE LOVES IT. I found it a week or so before his 3rd Birthday. I knew when I saw it we needed to get it. Our boys all love to ride bikes… but at age 3 there is only so much a kid his age can ride. I didn’t want to bother buying him a small bike (with training wheels) or tricycle, knowing that after 3 boys, none of mine did well at that age. However, I had read that balance bikes are far better to get kids at a young age… so when I saw this one for $29.00, I went for it.

The bike we got him is a 10″ KENT Dino Bike. It came from walmart. I found it online but it looks like its not available anymore online… I did get a 2 year warranty, for $2.00 :-D – because we’ve been known to wear things out easily. This way, if it breaks in 2 years, we get a new one or something similar at no cost. Speaking from experience, those warranties are totally worth it. I did see this one on amazon, its similar but cost about $20 more than ours.

After just a week or so using this bike, Reed is totally figuring out how to balance on two wheels. I know him being a 4th boy has helped speed along the process. He has 3 other brothers to keep up with… but the idea of these really does make sense. So I highly recommend them over Tricycles or big wheels at this age. :)

Heres a short video – sorry its so blurry and shaky at times. Im horrible at using my HD video on my camera.
