Balance Bikes are the newest trend in youth bicycling. The ultra-cool looking mini bikes are billed as "the perfect training bike for developing your child's sense of balance, motor skills, and self-confidence."
Unlike tricycles, these bikes are meant to support proper posture and spinal development. Since your little one will almost always have his feet on the ground, this bike maximizes safety.
It's also a non-intimidating option for 2 to 5-year-olds. Our 3-year-old jumped right on it after we pulled it out of the box. No need for explanations.
A winner of many awards in the toy and outdoor industries, FirstBIKE's glass fiber technology won’t rust like metal or splinter like wood.
Available in 11 colors, the frame and fork are backed by a lifetime guarantee, while all other parts come with a five-year guarantee. Fun accessories are also available including hand bells, baskets (shown), helmets, and vests.
WIN A BALANCE BIKE!

This bike is great!!

This is the coolest thing ever! I won't need one for a few years yet, but I would love this for my nephew. It would be awesome!
My 3 year old grandson would love this!
we dont have a bike yet for our little one... this would be great!
I have a 2 year old daughter that I would give this too.
Iv'e seen kids at the park with these bikes. They are really cool!
Wow! Never seen this before! Love the balance bike idea!!!
I have seen these on the internet, but never had the chance to try them out on my boys. I have a 4 year old that will be learning to ride a 2 wheeler soon and a little 1 year old that will eventually be biking. My boys love to be outside scootering or biking on our street. This would be so fun!
Looks like a really high quality bike.
this would be great for my daughter
I would love this for my 2 year old son since I can't really give him a Christmas this year.
My nephew is only 2, but I'm sure will be moving up to using an actual bicycle very soon... this is a perfect start to that !
I've researched balance bikes and this one is outstanding! Thanks for the chance to win!!!
This is really cool! It would be perfect for my nieces!
Nice bike, wish they were around when I was litte.
This would be great for my nephew
This would be great for our friend's kid!
This would be perfect for my granddaughter!
This would be great for my 2 year old, she hates not joining in with her older siblings!
This would be a great gift for the gbabies!
Great looking First bike!
This is such a cool giveaway. My son is at the perfect age for one of these.
Thank you so much for the giveaway!
This would be wonderful to win for my grandson! He would love riding in the cul de sac on this!
This would be nice for my niece..
My 2 year old nephew would love having one of these. He could then ride with his 5 & 11 year old brothers.
My 2 almost 3 year old would love this bike. always wanting to get on brothers big bike.
My daughter would enjoy this bike. thanks.
This is the perfect size for my daughter. She would love one in red.
My 4yo has been riding a balance bike since late-summer, and now he and his little brother are fighting over it. My daughter used it too, and I credit that balance bike with how quickly she learned to ride a "real" bike.
I love the glass fiber technology...no rust-awesome!! Great giveaway!
MY GRANDDAUGHTER WOULD LOVE THIS
I have a friend who grew up in Germany and she said these are big there for teaching kids how to ride. I'm very intrigued and wonder how well they help. I have a little one who is soon to start riding. Thanks for the chance.
Oh wow! This is so neat! Carter wanted to ride with the big boys so much this summer, but he is just too little. This bike is so neat to not only help him learn to ride a bike, but also to make him feel like he can be with the big boys! Oh Carter would LOVE it! Oh so neat!!!
I think this would be absolutely perfect for my almost three year old who has global developmental delays. It would help him with his balance issues and we could definitely use it as an an additional "therapy" tool without him knowing it!!!!!
my 3 y old daughter would love this
This is just the perfect thing for my 2 yr old nephew! Thanks for the chance to win!
My Grandson just turned 4, This would be great for him. Thank you!
I have a 5 year old boy that is still scared to ride his big boy bike. This sounds like the perfect next step!
This will be great for my niece. She was born this fall.
I know a coule of three year olds who would love this bike
What a great giveaway, Thank You. I have 2 granddaughters that are sisters, ages 3 and 4 this would be perfect for.
my little one is almost ready for this!
What a cool bike!
I want one of these for my three year old so badly. They used to be completely out of my price range but I might need to get one now if I don't win this giveaway. ;)
I have been wanting to buy one of these for our almost 3-year-old! They look so easy to use.
Interesting concept- we've always had training wheels.
Really like the design of this bike.
Oh love this!!
My 3 kids have learned to ride regular bikes, but we have considered picking one of these up on CL for our next rider. I think personality has a little to do with learning how/when to ride a bike!
what a great idea for my soon to be 3 year old to scoot along with his siblings bikes
What a great way to introduce a "bike" to a little one. The things they invent now days is amazing!
My oldest niece had a balance bike and she learned to ride so fast. My younger niece could benefit from one as well.
very cool. my three year old would love this!
I love the idea of balance bikes! These come in great colors.
Having two young boys who don't know how to ride bikes, this looks like a great gift for them!!
I really like the concept of the balance bike. I started seeing these about a year ago and have been curious about them since!
Very cool... would make a great 2nd bday present for my Emily Kate! :o)
My 2 year old would absolutely LOVE this. My husband is big into mountain/road biking and our son always wants to play with the big bikes. This would be perfect!
Thank You for hosting such a fab contest!!
I love this concept! I think my boys would think this is a really cool, rugged looking bike, too.
This is how we taught our niece to ride with no training wheels!! They just eventually start picking their feet up for longer stretches of time. Since she already knew how to pedal from her Big Wheel, Aunt NGS and Uncle NGS just took her out one day and taught her to ride a big girl bike. She was super excited!
My younger niece has a mild case of cerebral palsy in her legs and she LOVES the balance bike at grandma and grandpa's. I bet she would love to have one at home!!
Really cool - looks very sporty! My son is now 1 year old and this would be a great present for Christmas and for him to learn to ride a bike! Awesome!
My 4 year old has a bike & hasn't taken to it. I know this would be the perfect solution! (And then hand-me-down for the 1 year old...)
Wish I had this with my older son. He had a hard time learning to balance on a bike
I have always wanted to buy one of these bikes for my kids but could never justify the cost seeing as there is snow on the ground for a good part of the year where we live. I have heard rave reviews from other parents that going from a balance bike to a traditional bike was a seamless transistion. My 6yo has been riding a two-wheeler for a couple years now and it was really easy for him. But I think it might be more challenging for Lucy.
This is exactly what I want to get for my 2 yr old! Fingers crossed! :)
My daughter has CP and might really benefit from this bike...I know balance is something her PT is working on with her. It might depend on whether or not she fits the bike well...she is shorter in stature. Might have to give it a try...hadn't thought about this idea before!
My 3 y.o would love this. I like the idea that they don't get used to training wheels so the balance from day one.
We love balance bikes. Sam is getting a real bike for his birthday (4) this year, and I know he won't need training wheels because his balance is so good from the balance bike. So fun!!
Fun! Eleanor likes her "big girl" bike, but she also likes trying these whenever we're at someone else's house.
I've seen so many kids using these at an early age and hear that it is great to train them for bike riding as a child. My 3 year old would really benefit from a bike like this and his 1 year old brother when he's done with it! Does your middle daughter ride a bike with wheels now or does she continue to use the balance bike?
This looks perfect for my almost 2yo who wants to be just like his big brother!
We loved our balance bike! All my girls learned to ride a regular bike by the time they were 4 because of the balance bike. It would make a great Christmas gift!
Love these bikes! I never noticed them until I was in Germany for a couple of weeks 3 1/2 years ago and saw little kids using them everywhere!
my son would love this! he always wants the big kid stuff
Such a great bike,my five years old baby boy would love it.Thank you
These sound so great (and encouraging) for kids. I love that they offer a ton of fun colors!
Wow...this seems pretty cool! The 3 year old I babysit for has a trike and I can see her LOVING something like this!!
I love that it looks like a "real bike" with the silver color. My 3 year old would be really excited to get one!
