do you mean using the pedal on a bike and listening to audiobooks? Ds was 4 in June he has been pedaling for at least ayear now but still has stabilisers on his bike. Ds had always listened to music at bedtime but was growing out of classical lullibies just before his last birthday. So I brought a lot of read and play disney books which range in length from 10 through to 30 mins long. He listens to 1 or 2 after we have read to him and turned out lights at bedtime.

pedeling a trike/bike? as soon as he could reach the pedals for my boy, so about 18 months.

pedalling - as soon as they can reach the pedals. Without stabalisers? It varies child to child but DS could ride a bike without stasbalisers from 4.

Audio books - again it really does depend on the child and how interested they are in the story and how long they can keep their concentration going, from about 3 or 4 I guess...

Thanks for the replies (sorry for the delay in posting, internet was down).

I just needed to know whether it was too soon to get my soon to be 2 yo a pedal trike and whether I should get my friends 2.5yo a CD book when I send a pressie for her new baby.

DD has had a pedal trike since she was 2.5 but has only just (aged 3.5) got the hang of pedalling - but I think she was a bit of late starter there.

Audio books - she went through a phase of being very keen on them last year. Not so much now, but she was around 2.5 when she was really into them.

DS is 4 and has never really understood the concept of pedalling, not even when he had a trike, I should work harder at that I think. He doesn't listen to audio books at all although he likes to have books read to him, I think he's quite visual or just very active and doesn't have the concentration for audio.
