Learning to ride a bike is a childhood rite of passage — especially in sunny L.A. where Tori Spelling and Minnie Driver‘s little ones ride around onTyke Rider‘s Early Rider bikes ($150 to $200). Unlike traditional tricycles, these wooden and pedal-less bikes help kids — as young as 20 months-old — really master balance, which is key to building confidence for later riding.

Already hugely popular in Europe, they’re now available stateside. And, the company’s offering an exclusive 15% off discount to all CBB readers. Just enter code “tykerider” at checkout. And don’t forget to buy one of their super cute helmets. We love the polka dot style ($45, left).
