The Gingersnap 12” is a miniature version of our adult bikes, designed for ages 2-4. It has all the practical Bobbin touches you would expect: colour-matched mudguards and chainguard, smart brown grips, matching stabilisers (training wheels) a ding dong bell and an embossed Bobbin saddle. Hand-made in small batches, it features a gloss paint finish and all-important wicker basket.

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.
