    Default Please help with buying first bike for DD

    DD is 3 1/2 years and has kinda outgrow this trike:
    http://www.toysrus.com/buy/tricycles...e-26g-12903396

    It was a pass down from a friend and she really likes it. She got some bruise on her lower back from the raised seat, I guess she's getting a bit too tall for the trike that her lower back keeps rubbing/hitting the seat when she pedaled. Anyway, we're thinking of getting her a bike that she can at least use for several years. I'd imagine she will need training wheels to begin with and can take off the training wheels when she doesn't need it anymore.
    She's 34.5 lbs and height is about 38 1/2 inches.

    I've no clue what kind of bike we should get her. Any recommendation will be appreciated. TIA.

    I'd consider a balance bike.

    Tip from the boards- check Craigslist for bikes. Good deals.

    Balance bike seems like a great idea. DD likes to pedal the bike and I guess that's what interest her about biking, the pedaling part. Though I can see how we can skip training wheels if we can get her to ride the balance bike before "real" bike.
