Screen Shot 2014-12-21 at 10.20.26 AMWhen I was young and I got my first bike, my parents put training wheels on it, and let me go. After a while, they would take the training wheels off and I’d have to learn to ride on two wheels on my own. I eventually figured it out, but what if there was a better way? An easier way?

It is about time for E to get his first bike. Instead of going the traditional route and buying him a bike with training wheels, I decided to go the balance bike route. Balance bikes are becoming the newest way to teach your child to ride a two-wheel bike. One of these bikes is the PlasmaBike, which was developed by the makers of PlasmaCar.

These bikes help build kids’ confidence and boost their self-esteem.

Screen Shot 2014-12-21 at 10.40.52 AMUnlike some of the other balance bikes that are on the market, PlasmaBike  features extra-wide wheels and limited steering range to enhance balancing capabilities and allow your child to transition more easily to a 2-wheeled bike. I like the fact that the wide wheels keep the bike from tipping over when stopped or in a stationary position. This way, when E stops riding he doesn’t have to worry about the bike falling over on him.

I can’t wait for E to wake up Christmas morning and see the PlasmaBike under the tree. The only downside is that since we live in Western Pennsylvania we are going to have to wait for a nice day in order to take it outside for a test ride. In the meantime, we will have to settle for practicing inside!

Are you thinking of teaching your child to ride a 2-wheeler this year? If you are, the you really should con side the PlasmaBike. You can purchase one at Amazon or at many specialty toy stores
