Mongoose boys balance bike


The Mongoose Balance Bike is currently unavailable. Please see our recommendations for alternative wooden balance bikes for this age group:

Here is our review of the Mongoose balance bike for when it is available again:

The Mongoose balance bike for boys is one of our favourite bikes that we have reviewed.

The first thing that stands out about this bike is the frame, which is produced from natural birch plywood and offers an eye catching design.

The wooden frame means that the bike is environmentally friendly, and the black background is complemented by flames along the side and on the front of the bike, and with red handlebars, 12 inch red aluminium wheels and a black saddle so this will really appeal to little riders who want to get on their bike.

Other features of the Mongoose balance bike for boys include an adjustable saddle and pneumatic air tyres which provide a comfortable ride. Most leading balance bikes offer this style of tyre, although others such as Strider prefer the EVA foam tyre.

The maximum weight of the bike is 3.5kg, and this bike will be suitable for children from age 3 and upwards as 2 year olds will struggle with the weight of the bike and the saddle height. If you are buying a bike for a 2 year old then check out our recommended bikes here.

Scooter balance bike

Balance bikes come in all shapes and sizes and cater for children from as young as 18 months up to children as old as 11 or 12. Bikes can be made from wood, steel or aluminium – and although they come in a range of styles most models are in the shape of a traditional bicycle.

We have already looked at a range of motorbike balance bikes if you are looking for a bike in a exciting racing style, and another style of balance bike available is a scooter balance bike.

These bikes have a fun and funky design, they will really help your child to stand out from the crowd and are a great introduction to cycling.

Kiddimoto Scooter Wooden Balance Bike

Kiddimoto Scooter Balance Bike
  • Fun and funky designs
  • Made from birch plywood
  • Stand out from the crowd

There are currently a limited number of scooter balance bikes available and our favourite is the Kiddimoto Scooter Wooden Balance Bike.

Kiddimoto specialise in balance bikes and have range of other bikes such as the iconic Kiddimoto Kurve, one of our recommended balance bikes for 3 year olds.

All of the Kiddimoto Balance bikes are made from natural birch plywood, and we love the Kiddimoto Scooter Balance Bike!

This bike is based on the style of the iconic Mod Scooters of the 1960’s, so the rider will really look the part as the design takes influence from the original 60’s Lambretta Scooter.

The Kiddimoto Scooter Balance bike is available in a range of colours including orange, red and Union Jack – or you could really go for it with the Mod Target Design!

Other features include a footboard for free wheeling and pneumatic air tyres.

Although the seat on this bike is not adjustable, it is a great scooter balance bike and will provide hours of fun.

We will keep you updated when more scooter balance bikes become available!
