Being of a frugal mind, like I am, when we picked out my son's first bike several years ago, I made sure that we selected one that wasn't too 'boy'. I figured that when you are looking at a small starter bike, you won't get much use out of it and using the same bike for both kids simply would make more sense. The one we got was definitely 'boy', but being green and black without any character tie in, I felt it would work for my daughter.
When he was big enough to move up to the next size bike, we put the training wheels back on and added a basket with big flowers. Of course, my daughter wanted a seat for her dolly, which seemed to be available with some new bikes. Last year, I searched high and low for a doll seat that could easily be attached to a child's bike. I even called the companies that sold bikes with them on to find out if there was any way I could buy it direct from them. I simply wasn't able to find one. It was the only thing that I had wanted to get and I couldn't find it. I actually continued to check when we were at the store to see if I could find one.
This year, my daughter got a big girl bike from Santa. It didn't come with a doll seat either.
Now though, there is finally an option (I actually think it might have been an out of stock option the prior year, as I am pretty sure I did a search on this item before) - Ride Along Dolly - doll bike seat.
Unfortunately, while it is easy to attach and includes all of the necessary hardware, the bicycle that my daughter got has an integrated rear fender that flows from the frame, meaning that while the seat would have worked on the bike she inherited from her brother, now that she has her own 'girl' bike, there is no place to attach it on the new bike.
