I am sold and I wish I would have discovered this with my first three children. This past Christmas I came across these little bikes at Costco that had no pedals. They are called balance bikes and if you search for them you will see there are all kinds out there. The theory behind them is that if you let your little ones ride them they will learn the balance of a two wheeler quicker and easier. They are forces to keep their feet on the ground and push themselves forward. These bikes are normally so expensive so when I saw them at Costco under $25.00 I couldn't resist. I didn't know how they would really work so I picked up 2 of them. They have been in the garage ever since and some weeks they are ridden more than others. The triplets started riding them and before I knew it they would lift their feet up and just coast along. They would ride these along with their tricycles and I really didn't think anything of it.
