This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Candie. Congrats!
My little boy is constantly on the go! In fact, at 6 months pregnant I’m having a little difficulty keeping up with all of his energy. That’s why I like ride-on toys. We live in a private community that doesn’t get a ton of traffic, so I’m able to sit and watch him go-go-go on his toys. He needs to be outdoors and these types of toys allow him to do that in the safety of our neighborhood.
When I was a little girl, my father taught me how to ride a bike. At the time, children learned with training wheels. Once I was ready to get rid of the training wheels, he’d hold onto the back of the bike to help me balance until one day he let go. Bicycles with training wheels are for older children who are coordinated enough to pedal. Obviously, a two year old isn’t able to do this. But…he can still learn to ride a bike. How?
With the Skuut! With this awesome wooden balance bike, (designed for children ages 2-5), kids will learn balance, steering, and coordination while quickly gaining the skills to transition to a “regular” bike – without fear, and without training wheels.” The concept is simple…the child kicks off the ground, pushing (or scooting) themselves forward.
My son (at 27 months) has never been the tallest child in his age range. So while he should be able to use this, he is not quite there yet. Daddy has to support/hold the bike up for him because his little feet don’t touch the ground and he hasn’t learned to balance yet. Hence, I don’t have pictures to show you (and you know how I love pictures and videos). He’s very excited about his “bike” and he asks to ride it often but we need daddy’s help for this one until he grows in height just a bit more.
My husband put this together and said it wasn’t difficult. I like the fact that there are several seat adjustments (13.5 inches to 16.5 inches high). I also like the fact that it’s made from wood and it weighs just 10 pounds. Overall, I’m satisfied and can’t wait until my son can use this a bit more.
