While recently at the local park a conversation was overheard regarding an opinion that someone had. They believed that boys took to balance bikes better than girls and therefore they would encourage people to buy balance bikes for their boys but not necessarily their girls. It seemed more than a little surprising that someone would have this opinion.
Balance bikes are for all children, not just boys and not just girls. We have a local group of fanatical toddlers who love riding their balance bikes and the group is very much a mix of boys and girls. Some kids take to balance bikes faster than you can say 'Go' and for some, it takes a little longer and a little more encouragement. But there is no doubt that any kid can learn to zoom, run and scoot on their balance bikes.
