Ive read loads about balance bikes they seem to go up to age 5 plus - ive been trying my son who is 3 on a big boys bike with pedals he just doesn't get it yet and gets frustrated so ive decided to get him a bigger balance bike and my daughter one also who is 2 years old. Im just not sure which brand and model so many on the market! The Puky LR1 bike looks good for a 2 year old and maybe the LR1 for my son with the brake? I like this brand as it also has a place for them to rest their feet. Or the strider bike for both? Looking for one they can use for a few years really. Any others ?

We have a mini Glider

My boys have used it since 2 and it's still going strong. My 3.5 is still using it and loves it.

We've just today bought a Raleigh skedaddle for ds, 2.6yo. He's quite short and he's on tiptoes when in the saddle, but he's loving walking it round balanced over the frame, iyswim, and I can see it being a hit for a long time.

Strider are excellent and do a larger size for older kids.

Best thing I ever bought ds2 without a shadow of a doubt.

I bought my son (who is 3) a Storm BMX Balance Bike both the seat and the handlebar height are adjustable so it should last a few years to come. I got it off eBay but i've just had a quick look and the seller actually has a website too: www.toyzworld.co.uk/bikes-trikes/balance-bikes.html
