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.

You've asked, we've answered!

It’s okay to have questions, and we want to ensure you are all set for shopping with Bobbin. Take a look at our FAQs for the answers you’ve been looking for.

A balance bike is a two-wheeled bike with no pedals where the child pushes with their feet. A balance bike helps teach toddlers as young as 18 months to balance on two wheels. Then, after a brief learning period, toddlers and kids learn to control the bike and ride with no assistance from their parents (except maybe with the help of stabilisers).

A child can start to use a balance bike from around 18 months - to 2 years old. The first thing to do is measure your child’s inside leg, from the sole of the foot up to the inside of the crotch. The minimum inside leg for our balance bikes is 30cm, and you can see our measurement chart here. Our pedal bikes are very slightly bigger than the balance bikes and require a minimum inside leg measurement of 33cm. 12” pedal bikes can also be used from around 2 years old.

Balance bikes do not have pedals or front/rear brakes. The rider sits on the balance bike and scoots along using their feet. Balance bikes are lighter (and therefore easier to carry) than pedal bikes because they have far fewer components. Pedal bikes have pedals and front/rear brakes. Our 12 and 16" pedal bikes come with colour-matched stabilisers (training wheels). Our junior pedal bikes look like mini adult bikes, and come with lots of features, including colour-matched mudguards and chainguards, proper pneumatic tyres for smooth cycling, handmade wicker baskets, comfy sprung saddles and a classic ding-dong bell.

No, you can't. If you are concerned about getting the maximum possible use out of the bike as your child grows, it may be better to get a pedal bike instead, and start with using the stabilisers provided.

Your bike will be delivered to you partially assembled in a box. Assembly is really easy, and you can follow our instructions here. Assembly is normally done inside 30 minutes and basic tools are included with your bike. You will need scissors and a bike pump.

Safety, first!

Why not complete the look with one of our trendy matching helmets? Here at Bobbin, safety is in style - they’re breathable, comfortable, and a real head-turner.
