I remember the first bike I ever got as a gift. I was five years old and my family and I lived all the way in Germany. It was a warm summer day in August (even all the way across the globe) and I spent all day circling our cul-de-sac.
A couple of years later and a lot of miles on my pink and purple bike, we finally took the training wheels off. I rode all around the block laughing with accomplishment.
Those are two of my most memorable childhood moments and both came from my bike. The excitement of learning to ride with training wheels and without are epic to a kid.
My little girl is now five and just got her first pink and purple bicycle like I did when I was her age. It’s a joy to watch her go up and down our driveway, thoughtfully planning her turns and pressing down on the pedals.
She just got the Dynacraft Barbie 16″ Girls’ Bike and it is absolutely perfect for her. It’s tall enough that she feels like a big girl but low enough that she can get on and off easily. The comfy padded seat can raise as she gets taller and the training wheels can come off when she’s ready.
The sturdy steel frame is brighter than ever because they added a shiny Faux chrome pink paint finish! It’s it fancy?
And oh yeah, it’s super cute! It has a fun little basket on the front with a little puppy dog to ride along with you. She loves filling her basket with things before she goes for a ride.
There is a great Hot Wheels version of this bike too if you’ve got a cars lover in your house!
A bike is such a wonderful holiday gift for kids and it is a gift that lasts. This is not getting lost in a toy bin somewhere, that’s for sure.
I can’t wait to watch her learn and grow and finally reach her goal of riding without training wheels.
