Balance bikes for kids
Balance bikes for kids have become immensely popular, and it's certainly not a surprise. Balance bikes give kids the opportunity to develop and play at the same time. Parents love to keep track of their kids development, even if they think its happening too fast. Fortunately, kids also love to show their parents what they can do.
Theres not much that beats the sense of pride one feels as a parent when their kid masters a new skill. Cycling is one of these, and kids love it when they can finally ride a bike all by themselves.
Its great when kids learn to hold cutlery themselves, or are able to drink from a cup. The enthusiasm never ends when a kid finally learns to crawl, stand or walk and the same applies when they are able to cycle properly. With this in mind, a balance bike is the perfect choice.
Here at Kids World, you will find a large selection of balance bikes and strollers for kids of all ages. We have balance bikes for kids who have just learned to walk and balance bikes for slightly older kids who need to train their balance before they can get their first real bike.
Feel free to explore our product range to see if theres a balance bike that fits your little boy or girl perfectly.
Characterizations of a balance bike
A balance bike is characterized by the fact that it doesnt have pedals, but that a kid just runs with his bike. The great thing about this is that they easily learn to keep their balance, which is certainly not the case when they start practicing on a regular bike with pedals.
The transition to cycling properly from a balance bike to a bike with pedals is significantly easier. The insecurity that many kids feel when they start trying to ride a bike while keeping their balance is greatly reduced if the kid has had a balance bike to practice on first.
Balance bikes in different designs
Balance bikes come in a variety of different designs, such as in the form of a backhoe, truck, classic scooter or nice scooter with basket, and last but not least, there are balance bikes which are designed to look just like regular bikes, but dont have pedals.
Once a toddler has become confident in walking himself, its a good idea to start with a classic scooter before moving on to a real balance bike that looks like a regular pedal bike.
Confidence is of the utmost importance. The more familiar a kid is with accelerating with three wheels, the easier it becomes when they practice riding on two wheels.
A balance bike is responsible for developing a kid's motor skills, responsiveness and sense of their own body.
Comfortable balance bikes in good quality
At Kids-world, we carry a fine selection of balance bikes for kids in different designs, materials and colours. The selection is versatile, so definitely there will be one or more that will fit your kid perfectly.
We carry the classic scooter which is Swan-labeled plastic toy, and thus does not contain harmful substances.
In addition, we carry balance bikes that are designed in molded wood as well as balance bikes in steel. The wheels are either made of plastic, rubber or real pneumatic tires.
All balance bikes are delivered unassembled, but dont despair, as a practical assembly guide and tools to assemble the bike with Allen keys, etc. are included.
A balance bike excels in different ways, such as limitations as to how much the handlebars can turn so kids dont turn too sharply. The saddle can be rearranged on most balance bikes, so you can adjust the height to fit your kid perfectly.
Balance bikes with bells and rubber grips
Certain balance bikes are supplied with bells so that kids can feel like a real cyclist. There are also balance bikes with rubber grips on the handlebars, so their hands don't slip easily, and control of the bike is more easily maintained.
Last but not least, there are balance bikes that come with a nice basket. With a bicycle basket, kids can easily take their favorite teddy bear, ball, doll or any different type of toy with them on a trip.
If you choose a bike stroller, its also possible to attach a cord to the stroller and pull it after you when you are out for a walk, if you prefer.
Balance bikes are produced in several different sizes, including in different widths from 34-85 cm as well as 15-26 cm, and different lengths of 40-85 cm. Make sure you choose the right balance bike for your kid so they sit comfortably, but still have room to grow.
Balance bikes in nice, modern colours
Balance bikes are available in a large selection of colours such as silver, rose, grey, blue, white, red and more. In addition, we have balance bikes in retro designs that bring to mind the good ol days when dad was a boy.
How about a classic-looking balance bike in a red design with cream-white wheels, brown saddle and light brown rubber grips on the handlebars?
Trybikes are distinguished by the fact that you have the option of choosing between a two-wheeled or a three-wheeled bike thanks to their so-called 2-in-1 function.
You must be aware that balance bikes are intended for use by kids only, and that they are limited as to how much load each individual bike can withstand. We recommend that you read the product description and the manufacturer's instructions carefully before using a balance bike.
Balance bikes are basically for kids from approximately 15 months up to six years.
Balance bikes with different types of tires
The variety of balance bikes on this page come with different types of tires. There is no one particular kind of wheel that is necessarily better than the others. Instead, each type of tire comes with its own particular advantages.
You will find balance bikes with pneumatic tires, which are just like regular bikes. Tires with air in them provide a little more suspension as well as a more realistic cycling experience. On the other hand, they have the disadvantage in that they can puncture just like ordinary bicycle tires.
You will also find balance bikes with plastic tires. Plastic tires provide less suspension, but in return more stability and are an obvious choice for younger kids.
In addition, we also have balance bikes with tires made of EVA foam. The advantage of EVA foam is that its super durable and also ensures that the bike is puncture-free.
Last but not least, we also have balance bikes with rubber tires, which look nice and realistic and are very durable.
Choose the right balance bike
When choosing a balance bike for your boy or girl, its important that you choose the right kind. This means that you need to be aware of a few different considerations.
Be sure to choose a balance bike in the proper size. The right size is a bike where kids can easily have both feet on the ground at the same time. There must also be room for kids to grow. Many balance bikes can be set to different sizes, and its a good idea to choose a balance bike that suits a kid at the lowest setting so that the bike can grow with the kid.
Not all balance bikes are equally easy or difficult to ride. If you have a very small boy or girl who has just learned to walk, its a good idea to choose a balance bike that offers good stability. It can be a balance bike on three wheels, or with good, wide tires.
If, on the other hand, you have a slightly older kid who has used 3-wheeled balance bikes before and who has developed good balance, then it could be time for a balance bike with pneumatic wheels, which is more like a real bike.
Lastly, the colour and appearance obviously matters. Many kids have favourite colours and dream of a bike in just the right colour. For this same reason, we offer a large selection of different colour balance bikes, which will give any kid Christmas lights in their eyes.
To be sure you choose the right balance bike, feel free to read more about the different variations under each product. We always make certain to provide you with all the information you need.
Balance bikes in different degrees of difficulty
Here at Kids-World, you will find balance bikes in many different levels of difficulty. There are balance bikes with wide tires and three-wheelers for little ones as well as balance bikes with more traditional wheels. Before purchasing a balance bike, its a good idea to think about what kind of balance bike is best for your kid and how they perform.
2-in-1 Balance bikes
You can also find the so-called 2-in-1 balance bikes. This type of balance bike has two different functions. Some of them can be converted to scooters, while others can be used as both 2 and 3-wheel scooters.
With a 2-in-1 balance bike, you get two products for the price of one. In addition, you also have a balance bike that a kid can enjoy for a really long time. With a balance bike that can ride both 2 and 3 wheels, you have a balance bike that can keep up with a kid's development.
Balance bikes in different price ranges
On this page, you will find balance bikes in many different price ranges. This is because we feel there should be lots to choose from. The cheaper balance bikes typically have simpler designs and fewer functions, but still are really good quality balance bikes.
With slightly more expensive balance bikes, there is often a little more attention to design and detail, while still made in a fabulous quality. What you choose is up to you, and no matter the choice, we guarantee a good quality product.
