    Baby's first folding bike

    My son is now 5 weeks old and topped the 8 lb. mark, so it is time to get him his own folding bike. I may have jumpped the *** a bit, but this one was too cute to pass up.20130714_122214[1].jpg20130714_122225[1].jpg20130714_122203[1].jpg

    That's awesome. When he's ready, he'll have a blast with that. I never thought that there would be a folding bike for toddlers. Makes me wish I was a kid --maybe not.

    My 15-year-old daughter, 8-year-old son, and new baby all have folding bikes now. Does anyone know were to get one for a 4-year-old?

    Don't wait too long to teach him to ride on two wheels. And skip training wheels. Many three and four year olds can balance on two wheels. Balance first, pedal later. Training wheels make you learn in reverse order.

    +1. When my grand daughter hit the age of 7 I finally decided to go behind her parent's back and teach her to ride a bike. I bought her a bike and took the pedals off. Later in the day she was able to balance and turn. The pedals went back on and from that point forward she was able to ride.
    I plan on living forever... so far so good.

    Ayup! Made the mistake of training wheels with my son. Took him until age 7 to really get comfortable on a bike. DD was cruising the hood at age 4
