Wife asking for one of these. Just curious Why not grab this radio flyer for regular price rather than this coco village one ? Like what are the benefits ? Why is it regular 200??
The wood ones are more usually. We opted for the Strider and really like it. For whatever that's worth.

The seats are quite wide and low, and aren’t adjustable as the child grows. The look great but I found them a not practical, especially when winter is 7 months long, you can miss the window to use it.

Went with the Strider too. Paid a bit extra for the fully adjustable one. Hurts a little when you think you are spending more than an actual bike.

Kids stuff is just expensive, but think of it as actually being a bike for them. We're really happy with the Strider (I think we got the 12 sport). Stick with it, they'll start slow, watch the adjustments and fine tune them as they're starting out and you'll find a sweet spot for your kid - we kept the seat relatively low. Our daughter just started throwing her feet up on the foot-rests as she cruises.

Coco village stuff is nice and high quality but.....I wouldn't for a balance bike. That nice crafted wood will get shredded. We have a bed from Coco and quality is definitely top notch (and heavy solid wood).

Sport Chek from time to time has a balance bike for $35-39, honestly a great way to learn how to ride properly.

I'd prefer a Strider based on features and flexible adjustments.

There is nothing special about a balance bike. The easiest and most cost effective way is buy a regular bike and remove the pedals. Once they get the hang of it put the pedals back on and they have a real bike to use.

I have this and the good thing about them is they can learn to coast before they really have the balance because it's also a 3 wheeler.

$140+tax I believe? I forget where we got it, but looks like GP Bikes in Whitby sells them (shipping, too). The one we have is a bit different - it has these plastic "rests" on the rear fork instead of just grip tape. Not sure that really matters, though.

Probably a 14"? I think Strider sells a 14 that you can convert to a pedal bike.. https://striderbikes.com/14x-balance-bikes/

The minimum seat height at 15" is quite high and the range of seat is low at 18" max.

You may not get too much use out of it if you're living in colder parts of the country.

The aforementioned radio flyer has a seat range of 14.2" – 18.5" which should last you a few more summers.

Beating a dead horse here, but the Strider 12" is 12 - 20" inseam.. if you're looking for longevity.

I bought a $30 balance bike a couple of weeks ago. put it together for my kid (4yo) and on the 4th time trying she's gotten the hang of it already and balances down the hill with no issues.
