Searching for Ben's Birthday Gift!

~ Posted on Monday, February 27, 2012 at 7:06 AM ~

Ben's going to be 3 years old on 4th March! My baby boy is going to be 3 years old! Time goes by so quickly!

Anyway, we are currently busily hunting for his birthday gift, a bicycle!

We have promised him one since I started potty training him when I was in my last trimester of pregnancy. The bicycle is the reward if he can go diaper free during the day (which he is now!)

Ben with his potty training chart which I used long ago when we started potty training...

So, we have a few features we are looking for in his bicycle other than must be cheap (my budget less than RM200 which is about USD66+) and good quality! I wanted one with the passenger seat behind (you know, one day Alyson might be sitting behind?) and a cute little basket in front of the bicycle to carry stuff (like his water bottle or baby wipes or something) and hubby wanted a bicycle with metal rims (for safety purposes and long lasting durability). I also think it's important to have one where the chains are covered up so that Ben does not put his itchy fingers to investigate as well.

Wish us luck in finding this birthday gift on time!

Hey Dominique!
Thanks but not yet, this coming Sunday, a day before your boy's birthday! ;)


I also bought for Elizabeth a bicycle for her last birthday. We went to those bicycle shops and ask for the most expensive one and then compared it with the 2nd most expensive one. In the end we bought the 2nd most expensive one. LOL. It's also something like the picture you posted only thing is without the back seat and basket. Think I got the picture of her bike somewhere in my blog..


I got Ethan's bike at a bicycle shop in Centre Point,Bandar Utama at a little over RM200. You can have a glimpse of the bicycle here

It is pretty solid and tahan lasak.But it is without a basket.
