Scared 4.5yr old!
In a bit of a quandary about a bike for our son. We made the mistake of not getting him a balance bike and got him a bike with stabilisers last year instead. He was going down a slope and didn't have the strength to use the brake and as he couldn't stop he fell over to the side. As a result he was petrified going on the bike and we didn't push him. Anyway, we were contemplating getting him a balance bike to build his confidence but at 4.5yrs will he literally be too big for them (looking at the likeabike and islabike rothan)? We were thinking that it might be better to go for a larger Islabike and take off the pedals but will that then be too heavy for him to push and scoot around on? We also have a 2yr old and a baby so the purchase of the balance bike won't be a waste but I just want to do the best for him. He's quite a sensitive scaredy cat! What would you suggest? Thanks.
