Need a good Christmas present idea for your toddler?
While in Moab this spring I came across one of Nature For Kids favorite outdoor toys. I saw a toddler scooting around on this wooden bike with no pedals. He would run straddling the bike and then balance and glide across the ground. He looked like he was having so much fun that it made me want one for myself. For how small he was he was maneuvering the bike easily and was going pretty darn fast. When I got home I went straight to the computer to find out more about it.
I discovered LIKEaBIKE! Check it out…
Prepare to throw out the rickety training wheels and hard to pedal trikes. LIKEaBIKEs provide the necessary first step for little riders (ages 2-5). They don’t need pedaling skills first, they need balancing skills. What’s so fun about LIKEaBIKEs is that it provides toddlers a way to go fairly fast, making it possibe for toddlers to keep up with the rest of the family on long walks . Most of the LIKEaBIKE cruisers are made out of laminated birch wood. They also all feature adjustable seats. Need more reasons to convince you to buy one?
At first all the LIKEaBIKEs looked the same to me, but there are some differences. I went through them all and widdled the differences down for you. Here they are…
Mountain – Most popular bike featuring pneumatic tires for better traction and control on ground that gives.
Spoky – Comes with real spoked metal rims.
Jumper – Made out of aluminum and has rear wheel suspension
Mini – For those itty-bitty tots that want to start earlier than most.
Forest -Considered the Like A Bike masterpiece. Only design made from beech wood and has a dark green cotton seat.
Race – The first Like A Bike on the scene from 1997. Features solid hard rubber tires.
Midi and Maxi – Created a little larger for those older kids who just don’t want to let go of their nice ride.
And to fully trick out your LIKEaBIKE you can add some of these accessories…
I love these gift ideas like this because they totally encourage Nature For Kids, something all of us parents should seek for. So add this to your list of must have gifts for kids this Christmas.
