I had found a really cute Minnie Mouse bike at Toys R Us but it was to small and weirdly had a front hand break. I would be afraid that Ella would use the hand break and go flying over the handle bars. The matching helmet only came in a the 3 year old size.
I eventually decided on a Disney Princess bike with a heart basket. Right now it is a little big, but by next spring it should be perfect for her. I also got her a princess helmet.
The other day it was somewhat nice outside so I let Ella go outside for a little bit and ride her bike. She needs to work on her pedaling and steering and watching where she is going but it will all come in time.
She had a blast and didn't want to come in. Every day she asks to go out and ride her bike but the weather has been raining and cold.
Any suggestions to teach a toddler to ride a bike? How old were your kids when they got their first bike?
