I have been debating today on what to get Emma for her Birthday. Here are two of my options....she asked for a princess bike originally, but here are the pros and cons. Let me know what you think she will like. Princess Scooter ($20 plus and additional $20 for helment and pads) :
- She would probably have an easier time learning how to do it, and be able to play with it right away.
-It is a lot cheaper than a bike
-She would probably like it just as much
-It takes up less storage space (which we are tight on).

The bike ($58-including helment and pads):
- I found a cheap one at Kid to Kid, but it doesnt have training wheels, so by the time I buy training wheels and a helment and pads, it might cost the same as this bike that comes with the helment and pads.
-This bike is 16" and I dont know if she would be able to fit it quite yet.
-A 12" bike would be a better option for her right now, but she would probably grow out of it pretty soon.
-She has had a hard time in the past learning how to peddle, so it might take a little longer for her to be able to play with her bike by herself...

So, this is the debate....I think I am leaning toward the scooter right now, and then getting her a bike for Christmas or her Birthday next year.

I like the scooter idea. In fact i like it so much I might steal it for Brayden's birthday!

hummm....had choice because all the other big kids i.e. Jayden has a bike BUT since you are short on space I would do scooter which by the way is very cute and do bike for Christmas. Dang Santa gets all the credit! LOL!

I would say a bike. Scooters are not very safe. I am a paranoid person though.

I don't have kids, so I don't know how much my opinion is worth, but I think that the scooter is the best option. If it's easy for her to learn and it saves you money I say go for it! She'll be so excited to get whatever you buy her, no matter what and I can't believe that she's getting so big!

How fun is that scooter!

She's going to need a bike eventually...all kids do. But at her age, a bike might not be necessary, and a scooter seems like a good warm-up to a bike. Besides, if you get that girl a bike, good luck keeping her in the neighborhood!
