A wooden balance bike is a fantastic first bike for young children. With height-adjustable seats, these bikes can help your child on their journey towards cycling. We have a great range of bikes for kids, everything from basic designs up to the unicorn bikes! Riding around the garden outside on a toy bike is a great way to teach balance and how to stay on the bikes.
These bikes are eco-friendly too. They're made from responsibly sourced materials like wood and finished with non-toxic painting materials. These bikes for kids are safe for your kids and on the environment.
Children can start riding a balance bike from about age 18 months, depending on their height and weight of the bike. Most balance bikes have height adjustable seats which can go right down, so measure your childs leg height and check which bike is more suitable for them.
Is a balance bike good for 2 year olds?
YES! A wooden bike for kids has two wheel and no pedals, the aim of which is to help teach toddlers as young as 18-months to balance on two wheels. Once they have mastered balancing on two weeks, children will learn to ride a 'normal' bike with pedals much more easily. A child should always be able to reach the floor with their feet easily on a balance bike.
Can you add pedals to a balance bike?
Generally most balance bikes you cannot add pedals to. Some brands have pedals but generally not, just check each brand specifications for this feature.
Which balance bike is best?
This depends on what feature you are looking for. Balance bikes made from wood which have a large extending seat height will last the longest and might be considered the best.
What is good about a balance bike?
The main feature of a balance bike which makes them popular starter bikes for children is that they play a key role in helping to develop your childs gross motor skills and balance co-ordination. Spatial awareness is also greatly helped by a bike.
