PlasmaBike Was Exactly What Betty Needed!
PlasmaBike is a balance bike like no other! Its unique design encourages balance, coordination, and motor skills development while offering a fun ride. Lightweight and easy-to-carry to playgrounds, playdates, and when kid-power tires out. Age 18 mos. and up, holds up to 55 lb., weighs only 7 lb.
They were not playing around when they made this. It is very sturdy and well made. Look at all the awards this PlasmaBike has received:

This bike has bright red and black on it. The yellow is the horn. I gave Betty some stickers so she could decorate it the way she wanted to.
The wheels are good and wide so they will be able to balance this with ease. But they can tip it over, which is not a bad thing, they will need to balance themselves. This does not tip over unless someone almost pushes it over, or a leg gets caught on one side. Betty knocked it over and picked it up without any problems. She knew immediately how to pick it up and to balance herself. This is going to help her so much when she starts riding a bigger bike.
Betty is able to turn this and move it the way she wants to. I am not sure if I have told you but Betty was born 10 weeks premature and was in the hospital the first few months of life. I am just shocked at what doctors can do now because she was so tiny and she is growing good, but still is littler than most 3 year olds.
I am really glad that this did not have any pedals for her to worry about. She can concentrate on just the balancing part of bike riding right now. Plus no gears, nothing to put together, ready to go right out of the box. Betty loves it and told everyone it is hers!
She did share but really did not want to. The other little girl is only 2 and she loved it also. I wish I had 2 now, one for each. This would be a perfect present for boys or girls, 18 months and up. I believe Betty will learn how to ride a bike earlier and safer by using the PlasmaBike first.
