Hi -

DS is due to turn 2 in May and we're keen to buy him a balance bike. I've read the review pages here but still feel completely overwhelmed with choice! Can anyone help with a couple of quick questions I have?

First off - did you take your DC with you to try out bikes or just order? DS is pretty tall for his age and I have no clue about sizes. In fact - that's the 2nd question really as I am so clueless blush. Are there any features I should look for/avoid? Were there things your bike has you would recommend or advise against? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated as we don't have money to waste on something that wont get used & I am too sleep deprived thanks to baby DD to rely on my own mushy brain

Thanks in advance

We had a PUKY from a MN recomendation and it has been fab (Even the older DC have loved messing about on it.
