An introdction to our children's bike series, the Micargi Skeeter 12" is great addition to your child's life. A balance bike is traditionally used for toddlers around 18 months or so to balance on two wheels. In addition to tricycles and training wheels, a balance bike is a nice change of pace and will help your toddler learn how to ride and balance. With skills learned from a balance bike, your child will be able to go from this directly to a regular kids bike without training wheels. With a balance bike, your child will learn how to ride and coast without the assistance of adults. The Skeeter is a 12" steel frame balance bike. Unlike the Lil Skeeter, the Skeeter has air tires and steel rims so you can take your child riding out anywhere. This bike has the ability to adjust the seat height, so it can grow along with your child.
