My DD is 2 in November and very physically confident. I think she's ready to have a go on a balance bike but I'm nervous of getting something she can only look at for a year.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a small balance bike that a not big 2yr old could really have a go on?

I'd just get a tiny normal bike instead (preferably with pneumatic wheels, but not essential). Make sure her feet can reach the ground, then take the pedals off with a spanner and let her use it as a balance bike. Once she can balance, and you're feeling brave (2 is early...) pop the pedals back on and she'll be off. Or go for a mini micro scooter instead until she's a bit bigger - they are great for balance, speed and confidence.
