Strider Balance Bike
After seeing one of our friends' 2 year olds in action on his balance bike, Mr. Cherry and I were really impressed. If you haven't heard of a balance bike, they are just like a regular two wheeler, but without pedals.
The theory behind them is that the child gets accustomed to balancing on a two wheeler and can easily transition to a regular two wheeler skipping over the training wheel phase. When friends and family started to ask what Cream wanted for her birthday, we gave them the option of contributing toward the purchase of a balance bike.
We did a little research and decided to go with the Strider brand of balance bikes. And even better, we were able to purchase it at a local store. Cream still has a way to go, but she enjoys trying her bike out. And really it is so cute seeing her out on her miniature bike! (Isn't that what a bike is all about?!!!)
