Really cool Radio Flyer bike!

Submitted by on Monday, 28 July 2008One Comment

We have a Radio Flyer balancing bike for our 28 month old son. I can only highly recommend it. It is not so common in North America, but is pretty common in Europe. Since my wife is Austrian and we just moved back to Canada from Austria recently, it was only natural for us to get this.
Boy is this an attention getter, and boy does our son love his bike. When we go out with this bike and he is riding it, I feel like we get more attention than Brad Pitt would get when going for a stroll with Shiloh. Batman could pass us on his motorcycle and nobody would notice… they would all be focused on this bike.
At least every second person stares at this bike and makes a comment. The top comments include:
“Wow! What a cool bike!”
“I like your bike!”
“How adorable!”
“Look, its a balancing bike!”
“Where did you buy that!?!”
Seriously, I thought of starting my own balancing bike business after this.
We bought ours online at chapters indigo.ca for a reasonable price. Our son absolutely loves it and wants to take it with him every time we go outside. He can already balance really well on it… he rolls down hills very well and knows how to control his speed by putting his feet down when it starts to get too fast for his liking.
I think now that he has this foundation, it will be easy for him to learn how to ride a regular bike when the time comes.
So check it out if you think it might be the thing for you and your kid!

Join the jam! What is your coolest and most attention getting accessory/kid’s toy?
