Some of the biggest kid smiles are the result of having wheels beneath them. After all, the sheer delight of cruising is indisputable. Once they graduate from four-wheeled ride-on toys to toddle around the house, it's time to get them on the path to bike riding. And forget pedals and training wheels. They're so last century. Enter the ultra-rad vintage-inspired balance bike from Janod. Unlike bikes with pedals and training wheels, balance bikes make learning to ride effortless and fun. By learning the key skill of balance first, kids are able to progress to riding without having to "unlearn" bad habits that take hold when riding with training wheels. (Ahem, Montessori principles anyone?)
With plenty of summer and gorgeous fall days ahead, it's no wonder it's a fan favorite.
