This 16 inch girls bike is very pretty, and it’s just the right size for girls around 4-8 years old, especially if they need to learn how to ride (it’s actually rated exactly for this reason that many parents purchase this bike, the training wheels are attached and its a sturdy bike for exactly that, learning how to ride.
