A relatively recent concept, Balance Bikes, or 'Learner Bikes' as they are also known, are the perfect idea for children moving from a trike to a bike. We have a wide range of wood or steel balance bikes from quality manufacturers.
Balance bikes are one of our top selling wheeled toys as parents have come to appreciate that a kids balance bike is a fun and safe toy that helps their children to get plenty of exercise whilst learning to ride a bike, albeit without any pedals! Puky offer a wide range of steel framed bikes in a variety of different sizes, whilst Early Rider wooden balance bikes are always popular for parents looking for a wooden balance bike. Have a look at the new handlebar mitts available through Early Rider. These smart looking mitts are a great way to keep little fingers warm. Puky offer accessories such as bells and carry straps, all details can be found on our Puky product pages.
Balance bikes are really suited for 2-5 year olds and the quality manufacturers such as Puky offer three different sizes, so please check our age and height recommendation against each bike, as with any kids’ bike it is very important to get the correct size. It is better that the bike is on the small as opposed to large size, because although you need to bear in mind that your child will grow very quickly, do not be over optimistic as to how large he or she is.
Both front and rear brake options are available on many of the balance bikes and having a brake has obvious safety benefits. Do though appreciate that not all children have the strength to use a brake, so don't rely on it! For obvious reasons it is best to restrict balance bike use to flat ground.
We offer next working day delivery throughout the UK and don't forget that we are staffed solely by outdoor toy professionals who are happy to answer any questions over the phone.
