Our daughter received this glide bike for her 4th birthday. She LOVES it!! She knows how to peddle a trike, but was ready for a bicycle. We didn't want to use a bike with training wheels so we decided to try a glide bike. Within the first hour riding it she had mastered balance. We are thrilled with this purchase and will be recommending this to all our friends.
I bought this balance bike a couple months ago for our son who just turned 2. It did sit for about 3 weeks before he would ride it but now I can't keep him off it. The welds are very nice, the paint is shiny with a nice finish. The paint is durable but will chip if hit to hard. We have a couple chips but he's 2 and I expect him to crash it. The rotating foot stand is a great addition, the kick stand is nice however our son don't use it that much just because he don't understand what it does yet. The kick stand placement is a little odd but its easily removable if need be. I recommend this bike to anyone. I bought ours direct from Glide and they were very helpful and quick to ship. Keep up the good work.
My 4 year old was ready to move on from the tricycle but is nowhere near being able to ride a pedal bike yet - we tried it with a hand me down bike and I end up holding her up and pushing her. I didn't want to do training wheels but I wanted something she could do herself. Enter the Glide Bike! We took a risk and bought one, knowing that we can pass it down to our youngest after a year or two. At first when I put it together I thought it seemed really small, but after watching my daughter riding it it seems perfect for her. She absolutely loves riding this. She does it all by herself and is already practicing going down slight hills so she can pick her feet up and glide. So awesome! I can totally see how next year (maybe, if she's ready) she'll be able to transition to a big bike with no issues. This was a great purchase and we are all very happy with it!
Best bike for young kids. Learning everyday and loves to ride.
We got the Mini Glider as a gift and my son loves it.
It was easy to put together and when I had a question the owner picked up the phone. My son was able to ride it within an hour and is now able to go on long walks with no complaints. I am impressed with the high quality and features, easy to adjust seat, brakes and even a kick stand. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone with kids, its a fun easy outdoor activity.
Great training tool for cycling! My son's balance has improved immensely!
I bought this bike as a gift for my two year old nephew, but it was a bigger hit with his 5 year old brother! I think both of them are going to get a ton of use out of it. The bike was easy to put together and is easy to adjust. I love the fact that there's a handle break. Other models I considered did not have a break option other than the rider dragging their feet on the ground. It's a great purchase overall and I will definitely buy one for my own kids.
I purchased the blue mini glider for my grandson, who is three years old. I can't say enough about the service, first off, and when the bike arrived, my grandson was thrilled. Hard to get him off it. Thanks for the wonderful service.
I love this bike and my 3 year old likes it. It is taking him some time to get used to it, but this is a kid who tends to take his time in accepting ride-on toys. We've had it 3 months. He rides on it periodically and improves his ability to manage it notably with every ride. It's not comfortable yet so he prefers his tricycle. It will take him more time to be able to glide easily and balance without falling to one side. What is nice it that when he falls or loses his balance--which is part of the learning process-- he does not get hurt by getting hit by a wheel or caught in a chain. Initially he was looking for pedals, but when we called it his glider consistently instead of a bike he got with it.

My son is very tall for a 3 year old about 44" and right at the cut off for the next size up, the Go Glider. The owner answered the phone(!) and helped me to choose the mini-glider for a rider so young. (Thank you SO much!) This was the right decision. A smaller bike is always easier to handle especially for a new learner. I think we'll get the seat extender once my son has discovered his balance.

I spent hours and hours online considering every brand I could identify including Skuut and Strider on Amazon, ToyRUs, and independent websites. I chose this one for its strong build, solid tires, adjustable seat, hand break, kick stand, dimensions, and the placement of the foot rest that is closer to the construction of a bicycle.

I am convinced that this is the very best way for a child to learn to ride a bike. Once a child achieves balance they can ride anything.
We bought this one since they were out of the smaller bikes. He is still a little to small for it but he sure tries to ride it and loves to be pushed around!
