Strider Bikes Review 



I remember the Christmas I got my first bike.  It was a pink barbie bike.  It had a horn, a super cute white basket and even little tassel on the handle bars.  I begged my dad to take me outside to ride.  So he put on my matching helmet and knee pads.  I went outside in pure glee.  I jumped on tried to hard to reach my little to feat to the pedals...  Began to wiggle trying to get my legs longer so that they could reach and bam, down I went.  I remember crying my elbow was cut open my hip hurt and I never wanted to ride that evil bike again.

Quinn just turned 3 and has been asking for a bike.  He gets so upset to see his brother on a bike and him unable to be on one.  Me being an overprotective mom kept pushing it off.  Not ready to take that step with him.  Flash back from that Barbie bike still haunt me.


Then one day I was another bloggers site and seen they reviewed a Strider bike.
I was in awe from the moment I saw it!  A Strider bike is a balance bike, there are no pedals meaning little ones don't have to try to reach them.  If your toddler can walk, a STRIDER will get your toddler cruising over dirt, grass, and pavement with ease. Designed to be steady, stable, and safe, the STRIDER bike is perfect for children from 18 months to 5 years old. Weighing only 6.7 pounds so light that its easy for little ones to use. The bike includes  frame-integrated footrests for advanced rider development, and the handlebar and saddle height are adjustable for growing children.  The handlebars are so cute!  My little guys hand can easily grip them  

The Strider bike is perfect for building motor skills. Pediatricians agree that learning balance, coordination with exercise helps a child’s growth and development. This bike teaches our children balance and coordination.


 Trikes and bikes with training wheels don’t. As we seen with my Barbie bike!

Traditional bicycles place too much of the focus on learning to pedal not only do our kiddos miss out on the essentials of balance and coordination its also a pain trying to get little feet to reach and learn to use those pedals.

Lets talk more about the features!

I'm sure you can see the bike looks great :).  When my little Quinn seen his new bike I could tell he was excited!  His whole face lit up.  This is only 1 of the great colored offered.

As I said before the handle bars are kid sized making them perfect for little hands.


Eva Polymer tires meaning they never need to be blown up.  Also they are lighter then air blown tires again making this bike perfect for toddlers.











The seat is smaller making it perfect for little bums.  Also the height adjusts so it grow with our little ones.




And another great feature is the foot rests.  This is for the advanced riders who can coast :)  Beginners still need to use feet. 


The Strider Bike is suggest for ages 18 months - 5 years


No one forgets their first bike!  Make your little ones extra special and give them a bike that will not only be fun, but will also help them to develop much needed skills!

  1. I had no idea that this bike could be used all the way up to 5 years old. It's such a great idea that I wish was around when my son was little. The benefits of getting your child started with balance and coordination at such an early age by means of riding a bike are amazing! He looks so adorable, too!

  3. What a net idea! I've never seen anything like it. I wish there was something like that when my boys were little (they are teens now) because I think their experience was more like yours (but without the barbie!)

  10. These bikes are really great! My son who's going to be 3 soon just whizzes through now and isn't afraid to ride anymore. He's got the balancing down so well thanks to one of these.
