When my friend Courtney claimed her two year old twins were cruising around on this Early Rider pedal-free bike I thought, No chance. But my active little two year old daughter wants nothing more than to be outside so I gave it a go. The first run wasn’t so successful. Meaning, Jon emerged from running her around the block, sweating, and bitching because he was so hunched over. And then came the complaints about his back. Good Lord. But once Rafi got the hang of it, she was speed walking it back and forth on her own, which will ultimately teach her how to balance on a real bike. And because there are no pedals, she was able to wear her Sarah’s Silks fairy skirt the whole time. Kind of brilliant.
