Kids love ride-on toys. Unfortunately, they don't always have the balance they need to ride independently, a fact which can be extremely frustrating to a toddler that wants to do everything by himself. The PlasmaBike is the solution to that problem. This sturdy, uniquely-designed balance bike allows children as young as eighteen months to safely and independently ride without the complication of training wheels or the back-breaking assistance of mom and dad. Its wide wheels keep it upright even when stationary and its limited steering range keep it steady while children ride. The independence allowed and self-esteem fostered by this bike facilitate the transition to more advanced bikes as your child matures. Furthermore, the bike is lightweight and travels easily either on foot or in your car.
