The Gingersnap 16” is a miniature version of our adult bikes, designed for ages 4-6. Hand-made in small batches, it features a gloss paint finish and all-important wicker basket. It has all the classic Bobbin touches: colour-matched mudguards and chain guard, smart brown grips, matching stabilisers (training wheels) a ding dong bell and an embossed Bobbin saddle.

If you have been trying to make the right bike choice for a girl or a boy who loves to ride bikes with you, you need to look at the Gingersnap 16". This is a quality bike that can be used by children who are just getting ready to make that step up to a bigger bike but are not quite ready to be done with training wheels. This is a trike-style bike that is perfect for gaining experience on a bigger bicycle without the pressure of learning to ride without a little extra support.

This bike uses the concept of an adult bike in a classic style and gives your child the right blend of supportive riding and that feeling of being on top of the adult-biking world. Your child will be able to grow into this bike as they ride with you and it can help them to gain confidence in their riding skills and eventually graduate to a bigger bike for more advanced cycling or all kinds.

If you have been debating the best way to purchase a bike that will offer the benefits of a balance bike as well as all the right accessories for a child that wants to keep up with older children in the family, you will find that this brand is the best choice to make. You will get a quality bike delivered to you that is easy to assemble and you will never have to worry about buying the right added gear for your child's safety and comfort.

We make a full line of BMX style bikes and bikes for larger children, but this bike is the perfect stepping stone to help you and your child have the peace of mind that they are ready to step up to these bigger and more challenging mountain bikes or road bike styles. If you are thinking ahead toward getting your child a quality road bike, this cozy and comfortable bike will be the right preparation for this goal. We also offer a full lineup of quality safety items like bike helmets and more so that your child can be safe while they are cycling.

Assembling a Bobbin junior bike is really easy and fun. Please click here to view our step by step guide to assembling the bike. 

  • The bike arrives in a box. The handlebars, front wheel, front mudguard, pedals and saddle must be attached.
  • The basket is attached simply by the straps. Only the Gingersnap 24" comes with a basket support.
  • The box contains basic tools. You will also need scissors, pliers, a screwdriver and a pump.

Some things to note:

  • The basket is not machine made, it is hand woven from natural materials. Inconsistencies in weave, finish and colour are to be expected and are part of its charm.

More About The Gingersnap 16"

Child-Sized Frames
Weighing in at just 9kg, this lightweight bike is easily pedalled, wheeled, or even carried by Mum and Dad! Our quality bikes are made from light steel frames, and a kids bike is no exception.

Their First Pedal Bike
The Gingersnap 16" is the perfect bike for children aged 4-6 years. The style mimics a Bobbin grown-up bike and the adjustable height seat means little ones can grow into it with each bike ride.

Gorgeous Wicker Basket
Before Bobbin came along, kids bikes were either very tacky or plain boring. But with fun colours and quality handmade components, this basket bike has it all!

Wheel Size For 16" Bikes
16 inch wheel bikes have proven to be perfect for kids aged 4-6 years old, matching up with children's leg measurements at that age. 16 inch wheels allow for your mini-me to sit comfortably and grow with their bike for years to come.

Bobbin Gingersnap
With a vegan leather saddle and handmade wicker basket - this is a Bobbin bike you can feel good about. Finish off the look of this bike for beginners with a kids cycle helmet to match.
