We'd like to get 16 month old DD a ride on for use outdoors this summer.

She absolutely LOVES her older brother's bike & is desperate to get on it/join in. So we want something that will feel like a bike to her but is age appropriate.

We're wondering whether we're best to stick with a plastic type ride on e.g. little tikes bike/car or a toddlebike, or if to just go straight for a 10" balance bike, however I'm a bit unsure if that would still be too big or heavy for her to control just yet.

I'd appreciate hearing any advice, in particular from anyone who's little one mastered a balance bike at an early age or anyone with product recommendations / suggestions.

Thanks in advance! This is new territory for us as DS was never that interested in bikes/ride ons!

Mine could both ride a 10" balance bike at 18-19 months.

I have a Trax one which is the only one I could find low enough at that age.
