So I had a not so great experience while shopping for a bicycle the other day. I found a great purple one for myself, of course, but then we had to look at the toddler bikes because the sun would not have it any other way. Can you guess what I saw while watching the SO push our sun up and down the aisles on a cute 12" blue and black bike with training wheels? I know you know the answer! PINK! There was not one single toddler bike that didn't have pink on it in the entire store! Not only were they all pink, but they either had flowers on them or a cute picture of a little blond girl. If someone were shopping for toddler me, there'd be a problem. No offense to flowers and little blond girls, but I wouldn't want either of them plastered all over my bike - especially if it were already pink. I was never a fan of floral prints and I wasn't a little blond girl. I remember that my neighbor and playmate was a little blond girl - but I wasn't - I wonder how she's doing? Anyway, toddler me would rather have a blue bike with racing stripes or something on it. I do know that non pink bikes exist for girls (I found a few online, just none that I loved). I was just shocked that there weren't any in the huge store. My toddler me's feelings were kinda hurt! I decided to move on to another store to look for a couple of items for the house. My new bike agenda would have to wait for another day.
