STRIDER No-Pedal Balance Bike & Giveaway

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Have you heard of the new trend for your child's new bike: No-Pedal Balance Bikes? I had heard of them but didn't know much about them...until NOW! And I am so glad I have! What an awesome concept! Not only is my son learning great balance but he is so excited to have a "big boy bike"!

And other parents are feeling the same way because recently the STRIDER No-Pedal Balance Bike received the Seal of Approval for 2013 from the National Parenting Center. The Seal of Approval program helps consumers make informed decisions about products on the market targeted at parents and children. Like every test product, STRIDER bikes went through eight weeks of rigorous testing by parents, educators and children before receiving final approval. Each of the testers is encouraged to play with, and learn about the product while judges closely monitor the reactions and interaction between kids and the test product.

So why are they so awesome? Well, STRIDERS really are must-have products that encourage the development of balance, coordination, gross motor skills and a life-long love of fitness in kids aged 18-months to 5 years. I love as soon as a child can walk, they can ride the STRIDER Balance Bike!

The efficient, lightweight bikes, available in four different models and six different colors, help little “cyclists” as young as 18 months explore the world on two-wheels. STRIDER balance bikes remove the focus from pedaling and instead encourage kids to develop motor skills and the ability to balance on two wheels, two key components of riding a bicycle.

My son received the STRIDER ST-4 bike to try out and he first LOVES the bright green color (his favorite!). Plus, he loves how it looks just like other bikes he has seen other big and little kids riding!

Designed to be steady, stable, and safe, the STRIDER ST-4 bike is perfect for children from 18 months to 5 years old. Weighing only 6.7 pounds, the STRIDER™ No-Pedal Balance Bike is designed to be super light for ease of handling by young riders. The bike includes patented frame-integrated footrests for advanced rider development, and the handlebar and saddle height are adjustable for growing children.

The ST-4 teaches your child balance, coordination and develops glittering confidence. Trikes and bikes with training wheels don’t. Traditional bicycles place too much of the focus on learning to pedal -- skimping on developing your child’s motor skills.

The bike was really easy to put together. It only needed a couple bolts put in to assemble a couple pieces and it was ready to go! My son instantly climbed on and was ready to go!
