Strider® Bikes Featured on The Little Couple Reality Show on TLC
Rapid City, SD (January 28, 2016) — Strider Sports, the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of no-pedal balance bikes, is pleased to announce its recent appearance on an episode of The Little Couple, an American reality television series on TLC that has been in production for over five years.
Learning how to ride a traditional ride-on toy or bike is a challenge for little people due to the stand over height and the inability to reach the pedals. However, a balance works because there are no pedals. The STRIDER Bike’s simple, no-pedal design builds confidence and eliminates fear in children aged 18 months – 5 years old by allowing them to have their feet on the ground and progress at their own pace.
Strider’s Research and Development team installed custom scooter wheels on the STRIDER 12 Model bikes provided to the family, so that the bikes would fit the kids.
The episode featuring STRIDER Bike aired on TLC January 12th at 9:00 pm EDT.
