We are feeling guilty. The little man doesn't have a trike yet and now all his friends are reaching their second birthdays and graduating from three to two-wheelers (more on that later) and here is our boy with not a wheel to his name - it's wheely sad (sorry).
So his daddy and I decided to have a look at what's out there. A friend has kindly offered her children's old trike but it is very big and very red and, while it is great for the back garden, we would like something that he can peddle around on indoors and that can be packed up and flung in the car boot when we go to places.
As usual, John Lewis came to the rescue, with the ingenious Tiger Scuttlebug, that is not only inspired by his most favourite of stripy animals, but it handily folds down into nothing and, according to my husband, has a fantastic suspension on it. We were sold.
I like this idea and it is a strong contender for the second birthday looming in the near distance. However, I will NOT be getting the Team Kiddimoto Bike.
It might be wooden but a motorbike's a motorbike and that's just putting ideas into his head. No, much better is the lovely Union Jack Kurve Bike also from Kiddimoto - a far more patriotic choice.
