The Carlsbadistan Twelve Days Of Christmas #3: Prince Lionheart Balance Bike From Geppettos

by The Editors on December 3, 2009

Tgtg Ho09 7600We’ve always had this thing against training wheels. It comes from seeing kids on the sea wall on bikes that are far to big for them leaning over all sideways on one trainer completely oblivious to the fact that one day they are going to have to learn to balance.

If kids are going to be on training wheels they should be on a trike. That’s why we think these Prince Lionheart Balance Bike ($89.99), available at Geppetto’s Toys, is the perfect Christmas gift for two and three-year-olds.

For starters, the Balance Bike looks totally cool. Beyond that, it’s a wonderful way to ready your child for his first pedal bicycle. For now, he will master the art of balance on this great little starter bike, made of 100% birch wood, with 12″ rubber tires, solid rubber handgrips and a padded, adjustable-height seat. The “look-what-I-can-do” expression on his face will be priceless.

Exactly what we were thinking.
