Best Big Kids | Schwinn 16″ Jasmine/Scorch
If you’d rather just go straight from training wheels to two wheels, these Schwinn big-kid bikes are designed for kids between 4 and 8 years old. In addition to the bigger design and super-sturdy training wheels, this bike has both coaster brakes as well as front/rear hand brakes for more options. And since the frame is smaller than the average tween bicycle, your big kid will feel more secure and confident, able to put both feet firmly on the ground rather than teetering on tippy-toes. Most importantly, you know that by buying a Schwinn – one of the most trusted names in bicycles – the quality is higher than a typical kiddie bike.
