Quoting Mama Chiclette ~W8tin 2 O:" That's what I wanted to hear. Thanks. I wasn't sure if the bigger one would be too big and by the sounds of it, it will be. She hasn't had a bike so she's not proficient with the trike yet."
Yeah. My oldest couldn't ride a trike when we first got it (she was 2 like a I said above) but she learned really quick. She was about 3 years and 4 months when we got the 12 inch and she picked it up fairly quick because she knew how to ride but she had trouble with the balance (and not to brag but she's a skilled gymnast in a class 2 years above her age group) and it was frustrating for her. She did get it down and loves it not but like I said above, she still prefers the little one because she's faster on it and it's easier - she's lazy lol. Also if you have more than one kid, you'll get the use out of it with the next one. My littlest learned to ride the little trike at 16 months and loves it and I know we have probably another year plus with it for her!
