Trail a bike opinions?

I would love a recommendation on a trail-a-bike for my 4 year old. Looking around, the ones at REI are $200 for Novara to $275 (for one that was instore only). At Target, they have a Wee Ride for $81 and then they had a schwinn instore for $169. Does anyone have an opinion or experience with any of these? We are just going to be doing street and bike path rides for now. I am leaning towards the Novara but that may just be because I can't stop myself from spending money at REI these days...

Is the townie bike a goodie bike?

My wife would like a new bike. She really loves the Electra bikes (she really wants the Petro Zillia but found the Townie 21 much more comfortable). We went to a different bike shop and the guy there explained that she would not enjoy those bikes on long rides and would not be able to keep up with people on hybrids over the long haul. Does anyone have any experience with these bikes and are they good for more than just going to the grocery store? Will she be able to keep up on longer rides (road/bike path)?
