Even children tired of tricycles looked forward to riding the Micro G Bike. One tricycle shunning toddler tester now spends a few mornings each week zipping around our first floor up and down our sidewalk, using his feet to push him along as he would on a scooter.

The appeal, we think, is that riders can focus on balancing rather than pedaling - an important skill that will come in handy when it is time to make the transition to a two-wheeled bike. Light and of metal construction, the G bike has an adjustable seat so it in theory can accommodate young kids of any height (even tall ones). The best part is that toy is incredibly easy to store, even on its side under a couch. Convenience alone makes our parent testers favor it over tricycles.
