RE: At what age can a toddler pedal a trike?
Before 2 is pretty unusual. Somewhere between 2 and 3, most kids get it. We got the Kettler for my DD at 20 months. While I am sure that younger kids will enjoy them, IMO it is a toy more aimed at kids closer to 2.
Tons of kids in my neighborhood have trikes and ride them until they are 4. The average age for getting a first "real" bike in my neighborhood seems to be between 4 and 5, so I think you'll get a lot of use out of a Kettler. Especially if you plan to have more than one child. This is a trike that will last through several children. But that being said, one of my neighbors has THREE for her kids (but she has 5 kids age 6 and under...)
