Wondering whether a balance bike for the Under 3’s is worthwhile? Find out what our reviewer thought of the Toddlebike2.
What is the Toddlebike2?
Toddlebike2 is a pre balance bike for the under 3’s. It fills a gap between baby ride-on toys and bikes/scooters designed for older children. It has a unique design with the wheels quite close together to allow for young children to learn to balance and steer.
My First Thoughts on the Toddlebike2:
The bike is small, light and made of plastic. Initially I thought it looked too small for my toddler but I soon realised that it was perfect.
My toddler was 18 months old when he first started to use the Toddlebike2. He did have a children’s balance bike but was not confident and did not have the balance to use it.
Within weeks of using the Toddlebike2, we could see how much his balance had improved and he would choose to play on the balance bike a little more. For almost a year he has continued to play with both bikes and now at 2 and a half I would say that he is too big for the Toddlebike2. He is so confident that he tips it over and has gone over the handlebars (no injuries sustained!) so I think I will need to put it away for the new baby. My son is 98th centile for weight and height so this will last other children easily up to 3 years old.
This bike has definitely improved my son’s balance and made it really easy for him to progress to the balance bike. When it lasts for a year or two it’s a bargain at under £25.
