We loved our balance bikes. My then 6yo DD still couldn't ride a bike so DH grinded off the pedals and effectively made it a big balance bike, still took her a good few months. Poor kid got my coordination skills😂
DS1 had just turned 3 and was riding his big boy bike with pedals and never had training wheels because he learned how to balance using the balance bike.
And DS2 is 2.5 and pretty quick on the balance bike now and learning how to balance and lift his feet.

I found really good quality nice looking wooden balance bikes online for $40. So you can get ones that aren't too expensive

DS also had a balance bike at 2, we bought him a real bike at 3 and he was riding it no problems a week later, never had training wheels so I highly recommend a balance bike first!
