Anyone try one?  They are on for a good price a href="http://www.mamabargains.com/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">mamabargains today.  It is hard to tell how long things last on mamabargains and I hate feeling pressured to buy things fast!

i hate that pressure too.. but i think most balance bikes are fine. they seem to be a quick learning tool more than anything else.. that's a great price!

I don't have any experience with that brand. i notice a few things from the photo though: the tires aren't pneumatic, the bottom of the seat post looks sharp, and the nuts that hold the wheels on all stick out quite a bit (but they are covered at least). The steering looks unlimited (front fork can spin all the way around=jack-knifing), there might be a limiter I can't see. All things that more expensive bikes address.. My kids crash enough for those kinds of details to matter, but they are kamkazis on their bikes!

Some of the other models on the same page, for the same price, seem to have pneumatic tires and a different style frame wothout a tradional seat post. Things to think about.
