Prince Lionheart is a company that specialises in innovative products for babies and young children, and there are two quality balance bikes in their range.
Prince Lionheart Balance Bike
The Prince Lionheart balance bikes are made from 100% birch plywood, which gives the benefit of being good for the environment as well as being lightweight and strong.
Their classic balance bike is aimed at the core market of 2-5 years olds, and weighs in at a competitive 4.5kg. It has a stylish and sporty design, with the wooden body complemented by the comfortable rubber handgrips, wide 12” rubber tyres and with the makers name brandished down the side of the bike and the racing number 73 on the front.
The padded seat can be adjusted to 3 or 4 different heights to suit your child, so although the Prince Lionheart balance bike is not as adaptable as some metal bikes it is perfect for a child’s first bike as they learn to balance and steer.
The Prince Lionheart Balance bike is a good quality wooden bike that won’t let you down, and gets very favourable reviews. Other great wooden bikes you could consider in this price range are the Tidlo First Balance Bike from John Crane or the Jiggy Wooden Balance bike which are both slightly cheaper bikes. Other great options in the £50 – £60 price range are Stompee, Strider and Bike Star – which are all metal bikes but great options!
The second bike in the Prince Lionheart range is the Chop Balance Bike, which has been designed to mimic the style of a vintage motorcycle.
Kids will look cool as they race around the park or the playground on one of these, and the bike has many of the features of the classic bike with rubber handlebars, an adjustable seat and air filled tyres.The frame is again made from solid birch plywood, although it is slightly heavier at 6kg.
The Prince Lionheart Chop Balance Bike is available for around £70, and a matching balance bike stand is also available!
