Dd is turning 3 in 2 weeks. Wondering if I should get her a normal 2 wheeler with training wheels or go the balance bike?

My DS got a bike with training wheels for his 3rd birthday. He absolutely LOVES it. Only took a couple turns tk get the hang of it.

DS has both - he never uses the balance bike but loves the bike with training wheels

I'd go normal bike and take the peddles off ;-)

We did balance bike. Dh thinks it's the best easy to learn to ride, but I just think a balance bike is so much easier to manoeuvre. It's so hard to turn around with training wheels. I like the idea of taking the pedals off!
It's easy to teach them to use a balance bike too, we had a few very slow walks to start with but it didn't take long before they got the hang of it

DD1 got a balance bike for her 2nd birthday and never really liked it. For her 3rd birthday she got a proper bike with training wheels. She loves the proper bike and would ride all the time. Now she's 4 and rides her balance bike all the time. She's worked out a race track around on backyard and loves going up and down the ramp. I'm glad we have both they are both for different things
