Strider PREbike Toddler Balance Bike

Training wheels are so last summer. The Strider allows little ones ages 1-5 to learn two-wheeled riding on a model designed to teach balance for beginners.

(For a similar version of the PREbike, check out the Kazam Balance Bike, built for riders ages 3-6, $99 at Walmart.)
