Kids Balance Bikes

Our wide range of bikes for toddlers and kids bikes covers loads of styles for different ages. So if you're looking at buying their first bike, you might want to check out our Bobbin balance bikes.

Balance Bike vs. Kids Bikes
The difference between a pedal bike and a balance bike is that there are no pedals or rear brakes on the latter. Unlike a bike with pedals or even one with training wheels,  there's no need for them on a balance bike.

They might be the best option for your child instead of a bike with training wheels if they're a little older, bigger, and more adventurous! Head over to our blog to take a look at the benefits of balance bikes versus a normal bike.

Frame, Weight, and Wheel Size
With 12" wheels on both our Gingersnap Balance and our Moonbug Balance models, these bikes are ideal for children aged 2-4. Check out our sizing guide and consider your child's weight to see if a balance bike would be the perfect choice for them.

Then, you can even head over to our children's accessories range to make your very own balance bike with basket.

Get Them Cycling Early!
Here at Bobbin, we want to see everyone enjoy the joys of cycling as soon as possible. And balance bikes are a great way for preschoolers to gain confidence and understand the mechanics of biking in the safety of your garden before upgrading to a pedal bike.

A Lightweight Balance Bike
With the lightweight frames used in our balance bikes, your rider can keep their feet flat with an adjustable seat height and padded saddle. So simply pick the perfect size for your child's leg measurements and fine-tune it for comfort.

What is a Balance Bike?
A kids balance bike has no pedals, gears, chain et cetera and is designed for helping kids and toddlers learn how to "cycle" with balance and steering before moving up.

Which Balance Bike?
Start with balance bike age and use our handy kids sizing chart to measure whether this is the best option for your child. They may require a small balance bike despite being slightly older.

Then, think about what features you'd like to see on your child's balance bike. For example, Bobbin is fairly unique in offering a balance bike with basket and loads of customisable accessories from our range.

What colour Balance Bike?
It's not often that you see options for both a red balance bike and a pink balance bike with basket in the same collection! So now that you've found the best balance bike on the market, you can start customising it with the perfect colour for your little one.

What Age For a Balance Bike?
A balance bike from Bobbin is designed to be suitable for any of the following:

A balance bike for a 2 year old
A balance bike for 3 year old
A balance bike for 4 year old
A balance bike for toddlers in general
