We bought the Go-Glider for our five year old for Christmas since he had been having trouble with a traditional bike. He LOVES the Go-Glider, and in the few short weeks since Christmas he's already balancing well and can go on long bike trips with us. I'm amazed! His little brother has the Skuut bike, but we hadn't found anything that would fit our taller 5 year old until this bike. I must say that we like it even better than the Skuut. For one, it is so light! The smaller, wooden Skuut bike is much heavier. This makes the Go-Glider very usable. Traditional bikes are much heavier as well which made going up hills difficult especially with training wheels. I'm so thankful we won't have to do training wheels now!

Our 7 year old son was having a hard time learning to ride a bike and he really wanted to do it by his 8th birthday. We got him this glider for Christmas and he began gliding. In April, 2 weeks before his birthday, he decided he was ready to try his regular bike. So, with no training wheels and no help from us, he got on his 'regular' bike and took off. He was riding like a pro, never fell, and within 10 minutes was attempting tricks. GoGlider Rocks! It changed bike riding from a stressful, scary endeavor, to loads of fun. Now my 6 yr old is riding it and can't wait until he's ready for a 'regular' bike too.
