Giant's Animator 12 is small on size and big on fun. He'll pedal the lightweight, durable frame easily down the driveway or through the park. With coaster brakes he'll quickly learn to control his own speed. Removable training wheels and Giant's Easy Balance 12-inch tires will build confidence until he's ready to graduate to bigger wheels. The Animator also features Giant's Grow Technology saddle, chainguard, and a bell.
Our son wanted this bike for Christmas. He has outgrown it. But loved it deeply. It still has a little "christmas magic" i.e. glitter if you look closely. He went from balance bike to this bike...and was riding without training wheels very quickly. He also likes to take this bike "off roading" on horse trails... ect.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
