For the past couple of years, since before Skylar even turned two, he’s been wheeling around on a small balance bicycle. A scooter we like to call it. He affectionately refers to it as his bike. It’s been amazing! He’s fast, he balances well, it took up very little space and I feel like he’s really learned some great skills on it, especially for a two year old. Fast forward a couple of years, and before his four year birthday, the little man has been asking for a bicycle… a “big bicycle”. Granted, he’s quite outgrown his small balance bike (though he was still riding it, knees up to his chest and all!), and watching his big bro wheel around on a two wheeled pedal bike definitely stirred passion in that heart of his. I knew I didn’t want to just walk into any store and grab the first bicycle that caught his eye (and especially plastered with whatever character he was into at the moment, because those moments pass too quickly), so I researched a bit. While looking around I came across the Woom Bicycle and immediately was impressed by what I saw. Bicycles that were crafted to last, bicycles that can grow with your child and what really caught my eye… the fact that they start out as a balance bike!!!! Seriously, the part I was dreading about a new bike was going from his skills on a balance bike to training wheels and then to a two wheeled pedal bike. My plan with the Woom (we went with the Woom 2 based on Skylar’s size), is to keep it as a balance bike while he gets used to the size and is comfortable on it, and then we can add the pedals!
So far, I’m super impressed. The bike is solid, sturdy and I feel like it’s the best choice for a growing family!
I’ll definitely keep you updated on how that transition goes! And you guys, I feel like this might just be the easiest bike riding transition we’ve had to date! Until then… check out our family unboxing of the Woom bike. It’s a fun little peak into what it’s like when a box arrives at the door; everyone gets involved!! Of course, we got Skylar’s bicycle in green, his favorite color, and though it didn’t quite come in time for his birthday, we still opened it on someone’s birthday. In fact, Chris didn’t mind sharing his birthday spotlight with Skye, and it was just a lot of fun. Thankfully, it was also really easy to put together; we only had to attach the handle bars!
I just love it when I birthday present goes over this well!! Don’t you?
