Get a balance bike! They are awesome and will get her riding a real two wheeler in no time. We got one for DD when she turned two. Because it was too tall for her at the time, we took off the big rubber wheels and replaced with skateboard type wheels. Once she got tall enough (and brave enough) we put the front rubber wheel on first and about a week later, the back one. She would fly on that thing! This summer at almost 3 1/2yo, we put her on a two wheel pedal bike. It took four hours from first time on to riding by herself and that included a nap in the middle! Now my 17mo is riding the balance bike and chasing his big sister around. I think he will be ready for a real bike in the spring! Best money we could have spent on a ride on for our kids!
