    Default Kids bike to ride on grass?

    The one DS has would be ok for a taller kid, I think the seat can be raised as it's a metal frame, not wooden. DS got his at age 3.5 and still occasionally uses it and he's 5.5 (and tall for his age). Go to a bike shop to look for one rather than a kids toy shop, you're more likely to find an adjustable one in the bike shop.

    Ooh cool. I have only ever seen the wooden ones like ours which doesn't have an adjustable seat and is a wee bit too small for DD1 who is 5.5
