The kids in our neighborhood are such ruffians. They scream, they shout, they drive too fast! In our neighborhood we call them the Motorcycle Gang. It’s a group of kids that ride motorcycles any time the rain stops, well sometimes they even ride their motorcycles in the rain. It’s a mother’s nightmare.
I know, at first glance they all look way to sweet to be any trouble at all right. Especially that red headed one on the left, that one he’s a charmer, but watch out he’s trouble with a capital “T”. He’ll just bat his eyes at you and smile until you give him what he wants. At first, we only had two motorcycles in the neighborhood. Our Hungarian neighbor across the street brought this trouble with her. The whole lot of them should be banned for starting up the motorcycle gang. She still has family that lives there and that’s where the motorcycles came from. These plastic balance bikes we know and love in our neighborhood spread like wild fire. And honestly, I’m actually to blame for the size of our Motorcycle gang, not my neighbor.
I couldn’t keep my child off of their motorcycle so I had to get one for my children and one turned into two and another neighbor now has one too. So we have five superMopi riders total. Other children in the neighborhood have found other balance bikes so our gang is now up to 8. Finding the plastic balance bike (the SuperMopi) on the internet to purchase for my own children was a pain in the butt. You try typing in Hungarian Balance Bike, or Hungary Plastic Motorcycle, I had to look at pages and pages of balance bikes that were not what I was looking for. Until I finally found SuperMopi on Amazon.
On Amazon you can buy them in two sizes, Large and Extra Large. I recommend just getting the extra large. My neighbor has on that is even larger than the extra large, the difference is like an inch or two but for me I think the larger the better because the kids are just going to grow. Most balance bikes just cost too much for what they are. There are wooden balance bikes and metal balance bikes and in our climate I’m afraid of rust and mildew. So the SuperMOPI was right our my alley plus the price was much better than anyone else’s.
If you’re thinking of visiting our neighborhood, watch out for the Motorcycle Gang!
Disclosure: We purchased Two of these balance bikes because we LOVE them!!!
