Balance bikes are so popular now that you will see both boys and girls whizzing around as they learn to balance, steer and brake before graduating to a proper pedal bicycle.
Most balance bikes are unisex in design, although all of the main manufacturers will offer their most popular models in a range of colours. We have already covered pink balance bikes, which will probably appeal to the girls in your family, so if you are looking for a boys balance bike then you will most likely be looking for a bike with a bright red or blue colour, or one with a funky design.

We think that the Puky LRM makes an ideal first balance bike, with a low platform, height adjustable saddle and safety handlebars.
This bike is available in an ocean blue colour from £59.99.
Little boys will love the Police, Fire and Italian Job models, and there is also a Union Jack version available for patriotic young bike riders!
The Kiddimoto Kurve balance bike range is available from £49.99.
Slightly higher up the price range, the Adventure Zooom balance bike is a great all round choice with a lightweight, aluminium frame and a sleek and professional design. This is also available in a stylish blue colour, and is available from around £85.
By the time your little boy reaches the age of 5 or 6, he will have outgrown most of the balance bikes on the market. However, there is a growing demand for balance bikes for older children that can show off their tricks and skills – and one of the top models is the Super Strider 16” balance bike.
This model is for serious balance bike riders that want to show off their skills in the park or on the BMX track, and it has a price tag to match as you will have to expect to pay from £135 to £150 for this model.
This is a just a small selection of the huge number of balance bikes that are available for boys of all ages from 18 months up to the age of 11 or 12, so with such a great choice you should be able to find the best boys balance bike!
