Hello Patamel, I had a customer ask me the same question about a year ago, and I will repat what Islabike said to me. "The bikes are specifically designed for children, and we do not recommend that they be used by adults as the frame proportions are completely wrong." I suspect that what they mean is that although the saddle height may be suitable for you the reach will be far too short and you will end up with your knees banging the handlebars.
Quite a few manufacturers offer very small frames these days, typically 14.5", but as said elswhere at 5'2" I would expect you to be on a 16" mountain style bike or a 18/19" road bike.
Child seats will take children up to 22kgs but can be a problem to fit on the small framed bikes.
