A Kid Place Announces Launch of Smart Gear Balance Bikes
Balance Bikes are a fun and effective way for kids to learn how to ride a bicycle. A Kid Place is now offering eco-friendly Smart Gear Balance Bikes for children in time for summer.
Bonnie Lim, founder of A Kid Place, states that “Parents that provide their children with a balance bike (http://www.akidplace.com/
While most parents believe that a bike with training wheels is the best method to learn how to ride a bicycle, many say that bikes with training wheels actually hinder children’s abilities to learn how to balance themselves on a bike. Training wheels don’t actually train kids to do anything, but rather they lure kids into an unrealistic sense of security, instead of teaching kids how to balance and steer. Once the training wheels come off, children will not have the most important skills needed to ride a bike. As they go to ride and wobble all over the place, most likely falling, it ends up becoming a terrifying experience.
With a Smart Gear Balance Bike, children place both feet flat on the ground and start out by walking the bike. Once they feel comfortable, they can run and scoot while riding the bicycle. Eventually, once they are confident enough, they lift their feet off the ground and cruise while they balance on the bike’s two wheels. This builds confidence in kids and helps make the transition to a pedal bike a smooth one.
