Motorbike Balance bike
There is a huge range of balance bikes available today, ranging from simple, wooden bikes for very small children to top of the range balance bikes and even bikes that are purpose built for older children. You can choose between wooden, steel or aluminium bikes, there are different bikes for different age ranges and a huge number of colours, styles and sizes!
Most balance bikes will resemble a normal pedal bike, but If your think that your child would prefer something a bit different, then you could look for a motorbike balance bike.
These bikes have the same principle of helping young children to balance, steer and get to grips with the basics of riding a bike from a young age. They differ from normal bikes with an exciting motorbike style, and several different manufacturers offers bikes like this. We have done some research and come up with our top motorbike models!
Tidlo Motorbike Balance Bike
Tidlo is the own brand label of John Crane, which is a British company that specialises in wooden toys of all shapes and sizes. They offer several different styles of balance bike, which includes the Tidlo Motorbike Balance bike.
All of John Crane’s balance bikes are made from replenishable rubberwood, so the bikes are environmentally friendly as the trees will have reached the end of their natural life.
The Tidlo Motorbike balance bike has a racing style and is a really bright and colourful design, so it should appeal to young children and it really does look like a mini motorbike! The wooden frame is painted in a dynamic red and blue, with yellow flames added to the exhaust to give the impression of speed.
Features include pneumatic air tyres for a comfortable ride, a padded seat and easy grip handlebars. The bike has a height of 54cm and is suitable for children from 3 years and above. It is available for £53.
Yammy Wooden Motorbike Balance Bike
Another balance bike with an exciting motorbike style is the Yammy Wooden Motorbike Balance bike. The bike is made by Kidzmotion, who also offer the Jiggy Wooden Balance bike and the Oowee Pink Balance Bike.
This bike will really catch the eye with an all blue colour scheme including the frame, tyres and handlebars. It comes with a birch plywood frame, a soft padded seat and a saddle that is adjustable to 3 different heights between 38cm and 42cm. Check out our guide to balance bike seat heights here. Just watch out for the handlebars as you are not able to adjust the height of these!
This bike will probably be a bit too big for an average 2 year old with a 38cm saddle height, and it is also quite heavy. However, it will suit older children who are getting into racing perfectly and it is great value at just £35.
Alternatives to the Yammy Wooden Motorbike Balance bike are the Hondee Wooden Motorbike Balance bike and the Kwaka Wooden Motorbike balance bike. These bikes are also produced by Kidzmotion, so they offer the same style and features of the Yammy bike, but in different colours. The Hondee bike is available in striking orange and the Kwaka bike in green – they are both also £35.
Happy racing on your motorbike balance bike!
