Holz-Hoerz Wooden PedoBike:

  

My son LOVES his PedoBike. This is a push-bike, so it has no pedals. It took me a while to find this bike but boy am I glad I did. The competition is the Skuut bike and the LikeaBike. Skuut is made in China (big no no for me), and the LikeaBike did not have the option of extending the bike to make it usable for the kid as it grows, it also has limited steering compared to the PedoBike.

 

The PedoBike seat is long enough that 2 kids can ride it at the same time, seat is adjustable in height and there is the option of replacing the wheels with ski-feet for use on snow!  Any tools necessary for hight adjustment or fastening of screws are stored within the frame and therefore always at hand. This eco-friendly bike is finished with non-toxic linseed oil and the wood comes from a sustainable forest, made in Germany. It will last through generations and with the extension kit kids can use it up to age 12. My son (almost 3) is on this bike all day long in the house, his balance has improved dramatically in just a week of use. Oh, and it is cheaper then the LikeaBike!
