Holiday giveaway: Win a YBike
Both Max and Sabrina are too big for a YBike, so I had a neighborhood four-year-old try the one the company sent (the bike is intended for kids ages 2 to 4, but can be used by non-huge kids older than that). "I like that it can pretty much stand and its own and that the back tires are so wide—it's good for younger kids or any kids who don't feel sure about their balance," her mom reports. "It gives them a little comfort and more control over that balance thingie. Technical, aren't I? She loved riding it in the house and outdoors."
I wish Max were small enough to fit on one! Heck, I wish I was! I asked his physical therapist at school what she thought of the YBike, and she and other pt's there thought it would be great to try with younger students to promote balance and trunk control. She said kids would feel secure with their feet on the ground. She pointed out an added bonus for boys: It looks like a motorcycle. Not sure the Hell's Angels peeps would agree.
I have one YBike Balance Bike in this lovely shade of orange to give away, worth $80. Any fool can put it together in about five minutes, and you guys are no fools. To enter, answer the question "What is YBike's School Program?" Big hint: you can find the answer at YBike USA.
