When I was a child we spent every hour of light we had outdoors, usually riding bikes. I am always looking for ways to get my kids out and staying active. I had no idea how popular scooters had become though since then. Dane had a blast his first time at a birthday party playing on a friends scooter. Of course we bought him one for Christmas last year. Little did I know I should have gotten two so Declan could have his own. The only problem is he isn't quite ready for a big boy scooter or even big boy bikes.
I was super pumped when I first heard about YBike and the products they make for children! "All YBike products have been engineered with safety in mind and designed to help develop balance, co-ordination and self confidence in young kids."
So many times you find the old school versions of a bike, tricycle, or scooter. Sure they have modern designs but they are the same old concept. Not YBike! They realize that children learn differently. They need to build a certain level of self confidence in order to properly use these everyday toys. What I really love is that I feel like this is a company that knows me and my needs. I have a little one who wants to do everything his big brother does. Regardless of if he can or can't, he's going to do it!
Because we are in what seems a scooter phase, we picked the YBike Glider. This is a scooter designed for children aged 2-5 with two front wheels to help with balance. Declan can learn to steer correctly by leaning the direction he wants to go instead of having to coordinate pushing and turning a handle bar. He can also stop easily by putting his foot on the back wheel cover which works as a break. I wish I could truly show the expression on his face when he first tried it as I missed it in photograph. He can now follow around Dane whether its outside or through the house without me quite as worried about his safety!
Cost: $79.99 YBike Glider
Available to purchase: YBike
Recommendation: These are amazing toys! I love the ideas that they have come up with and as I said in the review I feel like they made this specifically for my family. They are a little expensive for a 2 year old but honestly worth the purchase when you look at safety and how it works with them and not against their size. The bikes are the same which I feel like we will be looking into these for Christmas this year!
Giveaway: YBike is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's lucky readers a Ybike Original or Ybike Pewi of their own!
