LikeaBike: An EasyRider

How's this for product endorsement? "I don't like when Mom and Dad always get stopped by people who want to talk about my bike... I like it best after it rained so I can run my bike through puddles." Joseph (3 years, 7 months). The bike in question is a LikeaBike, brainchild of German product designer Rolf Mertens. It suits kids 2 to 5 years old, who are too young for a real bicycle but still benefit greatly from developing a sense of balance, movement, oh yeh and fun.Weighing only 3.5 kg (~8 lbs) it's light enough to be propelled by little feet pushing along the hallway or footpath. Winner of the prestigious Spiel Gut (Good Toy) award, the fully adjustable LikeaBike is formed of birch plywood, stainless steel, rubber and felt. A two year warranty is offered, so it seems to be virtually kid-proof, though apparently it does suffer from being driven over in the family driveway! Available in Europe, UK, Canada, USA and no doubt, many other places too. ::LikeaBike [by WM]
