Why Kiddimoto?

Kiddimoto Wooden Balance Bikes

are great fun!

Why are balance bikes such a good idea for young children?

They help to develop and improve balance, which has a positive affect on a child's overall development of speech, reading and spacial skills. It also develops muscles and motor skills. Basically, it is good stuff.


How do Kiddimoto bikes help my child learn to ride a regular bike?

Balance bikes teach your child to learn natural balance. Once your child has balance on a Kiddimoto, they own that balance forever. They can progress easily to a regular bike with pedals. For more information on this see our Balance Learning and Play page.

Why don't your bikes have pedals?

They are balance bikes for children aged 2 to 6 years (from 3 years for Kurve bikes). Pedals are the next stage of riding. Pedals will only get in the way.

Why don't your bikes have stabilisers?

Because they are balance bikes. Stabilisers don't help to develop balance. They do the opposite.

Do the bikes have brakes?

No. Having a brake adds another thing for a small child to think about. It is an unwanted distraction. Brakes will come later, with a pedal bicycle. Let's get the balance sorted first!

How is my child supposed to stop the bike?

Use their feet! Kids will do this naturally and very safely.

My daughter is very small for her age - will she be able to ride your bikes?

Most children of 2 years and above will be OK (3 years for Kurve bikes). The minimum inside leg should be 33cm.

Are the bike seats adjustable?

The Kurve bikes have adjustable seats.

How long will my child be able to use the balance bike for?

They will use a balance bike for about a year or more and then be ready to move up to a pedal bicycle. We have customers that have used their bike for 5 years.

Can I fit stabilisers to my balance bike?

No. Stabilisers do not help develop balance.

What sort of guarantee comes with Kiddimoto balance bikes?

How easy is it to assemble the bikes?

It is very simple. All instructions are straightforward and have easy to follow pictures.

Are your balance bikes heavy?

They weigh between 3 and 7kg. It depends on the model. Check the product description for each bike. They are less than half the weight of a regular metal bicycle.

What are your bikes made of?

Our metal bikes also have real pneumatic tyres and a lightweight steel frame.

How do I keep my child's bike in the best possible condition?

How do I decide what Kiddimoto bike to buy?

It is down to your preference. What is your child's favorite colour? What is their favourite style. Our website has a brief description of each style of bike. Alternatively, take some time to look through our website with your child and let them decide.
