Giveaway: Strider Running Bike @ Mission Mommy (12.15)

Mission Mommy is giving away a Strider Running Bike!

Wouldn't this be a wonderful gift under the tree for a toddler or preschooler?

I've mentioned before our wretched balance problems. This Strider bike might give Mikko a fighting chance to learn to ride a real bike before he graduates high school!

Either with or without training wheels at that point would be acceptable.

Learning to ride a bike is not easy for most kids. It can take years of practice on a tricycle, then a bike with training wheels. ... This bike is designed without pedals to teach little ones to balance a bike. And, that is the hardest part of the whole experience.

Naturally, the earlier you start, the better. Kids will have more time to learn the ropes, and will be on a "big kid" bike well before his preschool pals. Learning to balance a bike without having to pedal first enables them to actually figure it out naturally. Learning to balance takes more practice and is hard enough without having to coordinate pedaling to get around.

Enter fast at Mission Mommy by Dec. 15.
