This is the perfect Twist Roller Ride on bike for a small child to begin riding with. It doesn't have petals, so they don't need to be able to know how to pedal or reach the pedals. The bike has an extra wheel so it has a lot more stability than a standard two wheel bike. By riding this bike, the child will develop motor skills, balance, and coordination that will help to prepare them to ride a real bike. Help your child learn while they have fun.
