WHAT IS A BALANCE BIKE?
A balance bike is a bike with no pedals and no stabilisers, making it a really simple platform for a child to develop strength, coordination, balance and confidence.
Children who ride bikes with stabilisers learn how to pedal but not to balance, so have to start a lengthy learning process all over again when the stabilisers are removed.
As British cycling legend Chris Hoy says: “I have always been a big believer in the fact that stabilisers aren’t a good thing for kids because they don’t learn how to balance, they learn how to lean to one side. A balance bike teaches that important part of learning how to ride. Kids feel safe too because all they have to do is put their feet down.”
From as early as 18months children learn by walking/running while sat on their balance bike. As the child grows confidence they begin to free wheel by lifting both feet off the ground. Once they begin to do this they have started to gain balance skills!
Our bikes and ride-ons are suitable for 18-month-old toddlers right up to 6-year-olds!
The majority of our bikes range from 2 years upwards, though our Super Junior range starts from 18 months due to the lower slung frame. Our Kurve range, meanwhile, is best for children aged 3 and up.
This is mainly due to design. Our motorbike-orientated bikes are replicas of the real thing so they have fixed seats. However, the Super Juniors and Kurve ranges have adjustable seats to suit your growing child.
When it’s time to clean your Kiddimoto balance bike, try to wipe with a dry cloth first. If a damp cloth is needed to remove dirt, moisten the cloth just to clean. Wipe away moisture and let it air dry.
Never clean Kiddimoto toys with polish. Polish contains toxic substances that may be harmful to children.
Never use harsh detergents or chemicals that could damage your Kiddimoto.
Involve your child in the care of their Kiddimoto and they will stay in top condition for years!
In most cases the bikes simply need the wheels and handlebars to be attached
