It is the joy of every parent to watch their child take their first steps in trying to learn how to ride a bike and although they like to see this, they cannot tell their child about the dangers which are involved in riding a bike, at a very young age. This is because owning a bike is one thing and riding it is a total different thing entirely and it is certainly not easy to tell a child that he/she can own a bike but he/she must wait to be a little older to ride it. However, the parent... Continue reading

Bikes are the first cutest and useful gift that parents can give to their child. As young as two years old they can start riding a bike, especially if you will choose the best bike that will teach them how to balance and operate the bike on their own. Independence is the key to teach a child to learn how to bike. If you keep on insisting to go for bikes with training wheels you will just be teaching them to be dependent and you are also prolonging their chance to learn how to really bike properly. Your child needs... Continue reading

The Strider balance bike is a metal bike made especially for children between the ages of 2-5 years old. No peddles are available as well as no training wheels. This is contradictory to the traditional children bike. To move forward the child will kick off the ground as if they were running, thus pushing the bike forward. The Strider is a perfect starter bike that teaches balance, steering and coordination. But the greatest benefit of a strider bike is the independence that is gained from a child mastering balance. Once mastered the transition to the tradition two wheeled bike will... Continue reading

In a world where everything is molded by the hands of time the bicycle seems immune to evolution. The 1st cellular analogue phone was invented in 1973. It was the size of a brick, it had an antenna that was just as long as the phone itself, and making phone calls was its only feature. Now we have sleek, slender phones, that not only make phone calls, they send text messages, emails, capture pictures and videos, play music and movies, have full keyboards for typing word documents, and some don’t even have physical buttons because the whole phone consists of...
