I can't decide when to purchase Izzy her first bike/trike. Once in awhile we make a trip out to Toys R US to play. It gives her the opportunity to play. We make a two hours of it just to window shop and try things out. The last time we were there was the first time she wanted to sit on a trike and was able to pedal around the store with it. I'm sure there are some at her Day Care but until that day I didn't even know she knew how to use one. She had a little problems steering but I'm sure she'd get better the more she played with it.
