The Schwinn Skip 3 is the perfect way for your little one to learn to ride and balance on a bike. When you were a kid, you had training wheels, got a good push and off you went. This method can still work, but balance bikes are designed to create balancing skills better than a tricycle can. Using a balance bike removes the need to pedal, teaching the child to push with their legs and glide, like using a seated scooter. Once they are old enough to ride a tricycle, they are old enough to get on a balance bike. You won’t believe how fast your little one can go and how quickly they will learn how to ride when finally introduced to a pedal bike!
