The Balance Bike is easy and quick to assemble. It is made from birch wood with real inflatable rubber tires, foam handle bar grips, cushioned leatherette seat, and a unique carry handle incorporated in the bikes body. It is able to grow with the child by raising the seat, which means it lasts longer than some of the other tricycles and small bikes on the market. In addition to being a fun toy for any child, this is a wonderful piece of therapy equipment for a child who is struggling with gross motor movement, balance, and coordination. Because young children will likely have a few spills while learning to use the Balance Bike, remember to use a helmet for safety.
