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. Below are a couple of the scooter balance bikes that we recommend.
Tidlo Scooter Balance Bike
John Crane is a British company specialising in wooden toys of many different varieties, and Tidlo is their own brand label. The Tidlo Scooter Balance bike is one of the balance bikes that is available.
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 Scooter balance bike has a retro and fun design, with a bright red frame and a scooter style that would not look out of place on the streets of Rome! It should really appeal to young boys or girls with the bright colours, and the pneumatic tyres give it a very realistic appearance.
Other features of the Tidlo Scooter Balance bike include a painted and height adjustable seat, as well as pneumatic tyres which give it a more comfortable ride. This is a great way for young children to learn the concepts of balance and steering and it is suitable for children aged from 3 – 6 years. It is generally available for between £39 – £52.
Kiddimoto Scooter Balance Bike
If you can stretch your budget a little further, then another superb option is the Kiddimoto Wooden Scooter Balance Bike. Kiddimoto specialise in balance bikes and have range of other bikes such as the Kiddimoto Kurve, the Middi Kurve for older children and different styles such as Superbikes and Choppers.
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. Available for between £89.99 – £119.99, this is an amazing scooter balance bike that is a great way to learn to ride.
