Let’s keep it real simple. The balance bike is two wheels but no pedals. Why? The first step to riding for those kids as young as 18 months old is balance. So no need to add the fear and trepidation of mounting onto pedals. No pedals gets them to gliding along and launching themselves on and off the balance bike with ease and the proud parents just watch on as the child quickly gets to balancing on 2 wheels. So with a balance bike you can give the 3 wheel tricycle and the relics of the past - training wheels, a complete miss. With the skills learned from a balance bike, you will see toddlers as young as 3 be completely unfazed about the shift to a regular bike and yes no training wheels. Kids get the riding skills and feel of a regular bike and traverse all the usual terrain of the bikes of their older brothers and sisters and parents.
What age can we start toddlers / kids on a Balance Bikes?
You can get them up and going from 18 months and they can keep enjoying them until 5 years. Though we reckon they will be well and truly up for the real deal two wheeler with pedals well before 5 if you start them early enough. From that first day on a balance bike they will be scootin and shootin around and having a ball. And ready for bed by the end of the day on a Balance Bike A win/win for everyone. Best of all on a balance bike the kids do all the work so they feel good about themselves and it starts the life journey toward independence from Mum and Dad. And plain simple it hones their motor skills and gets them much improved balance skills which set them up to try and succeed at doing other fun activities.
How long do we keep them on a Balance Bike?
We think you can see them on a balance bike for 2-3 years. So if you start early you might see the demand for the regular pedal power 2 wheeler around 3-4 years of age. You can get advice on the best size balance bike for your child. As a general rule from their first comfortable seating position on a balance bike allow for say 5cm in how far you can extend the seat height. This allows for a pretty normal growth pattern. So don’t delay get your toddler going and see the joy on their face and how proud they are to be independent, getting strong and just having fun. And yes most of all outside.
