Joking aside, I feel childhood is incomplete when you miss out the experience of going around the village with your friends, riding a bike. And while training wheels might be the more conventional way of learning how to ride, there's one more way that seems to be really effective in teaching kids how to balance. And that's the balance bike.
Also, I was delight to learn that Balance Bikes are also a lot safer than the usual bikes. First of all, they're lighter. Another thing is that they are easier to maneuver. Whereas tricycles easily tips over when on unbalanced surfaces.
We got Rain's balance bike from Kids Who Ride. It's got EVA foam wheels so you never have to worry about getting a flat tire, the seat is wide and comfortable, and the height can be adjustable. The frame is a durable steel frame that will last you for a lifetime. And the best part? It's only P2,500!
This cute yet sturdy-looking helmet is only P500! Because honestly, protecting your child's head is priceless! The helmet is for children ages 2-5 with head circumference between 46 and 52 cm. And to make the whole gear complete, throw in an extra P400 for a set of knee and elbow pads for added safety! No more ouchie and scars!
See her first day with her new balance bike here! Still needs a bit more practice but like I said, I didn't teach her at all how to use it except to say "push with your feet!" And she got it instantly! Didn't fall even once ;-)
So do your kids a favor and get them a balance bike now! Comes in cobalt, cinnamon, and rose! Follow Kids Who Ride in Facebook, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 09178629519
