Having coveted this wonderful wooden balancing bicycle (løpesykkel) for ages we've finally bought one for Theodore. He loves it and scoots about the kitchen/sittingroom on it, and even though it may be my imagination the balance seems to be coming. I do just love the look of it, even when it ends up flung in a heap in the middle of the floor and i inevitably trip over it. We bought ours from Sprell, a shop i could hang out in all day and nearly have done with Theodore. Last time we spent at least an hour playing with their amazing dolls house (Majorstuen branch, Oslo). But despite the new love the old one dies hard- his sparkesykkel/Kick bike does still luck out on most occasions when we're out of the house...high speed car chases galore!
