A bike or riding toy will provide your child with hours of fun. The best riding toy or bike for your child will depend on their age and size and how they like to play.
Riding toys are typically designed for children between 6 months and 5 years of age and may be body powered, pedal powered or battery powered. Body-powered toys for the youngest children often include handles for an adult to push, but others are powered by the child, usually by moving their feet along the ground. Pedal-powered toys transfer power from the pedals to the wheels, much like a bicycle. Battery-powered toys usually run on 6-volt or 12-volt batteries and often have gas and brake pedals, like a car.
At 2-4 years of age, your child may be ready for a tricycle. An alternative to a tricycle is a balance bike, which has two wheels and no pedals. Balance bikes are powered by a child moving their feet along the ground, and they help kids develop balance to prepare to ride regular bikes.
Between the ages of 4 and 8, a child is often ready for a regular kid's bike. A child should always wear a helmet while riding a bicycle.
