No one is ever too old for toys or games, especially of the two-wheeled variety. This year we recommend spreading the holiday cheer with something that’s sure to bring a smile to a kid’s face. No, it’s not a motorcycle, but MCUSA offers several alternatives in its 2011 Motorcycle Holiday Gift Guide to Toys & Games.

Tires are made of puncture-proof all-terrain polymer. The handlebar and seat can accommodate riders between 30 to 44 inches tall. If your child is four years and older, Strider recommends the extra-long seatpost.
