On Your Bike!

The Little Man was extremely pleased with the Toddlebike I was sent to review. Since the day it has arrived it's been his favourite mode of transport, and even when we 'have' to go in the buggy he likes to take the bike along too!
Here he is on his very first outing with sister Boo keeping an eye on him.

At first he was slow, but soon he really got the hang of it and now he gets all daredevil fast, especially downhill.

The Toddlebike is a pre balance bike for younger children eighteen months to three years old. The best feature is the weight, at just 0.8kg it's so light that the Little Man can pick it up and carry it quite easily. Having older children one of my bugbears has been having to cart around heavy bikes and scooters, either to take them around the school for home time, or when they've had enough of riding them. With the Toddlebike, it's so light you barely know you are carrying it, and no banging into your legs when you walk. In fact when the Little Man gets to a hill too steep, or just wants to walk for a while, he picks it up and carries it himself, he doesn't even ask me!

So far the Toddlebike has been used in the house, the garden, on the trip to Grandma's house, to pre-school, to the shops and to church. I'm sure it will have many more adventures before the Little Man outgrows it.

The Toddlebike is great for use around the house, ours lives under the dining room table when not in use. It takes up little room, and even when the Little Man is riding around the house on it he doesn't get in the way. One of his favourite activities is keeping the wheels clean.



Here is the Little Man getting used to his Toddlebike on his very first outing with it.






The Toddlebike, despite its incredibly lightness, is also very durable and is able to withstand the boisterousness of a toddler. It doesn't topple easy and it's a great alternative to traditional ride-ons. It soon becomes a favourite toy. 

I love the Toddlebike because it makes getting out and about fun!

    1. Thanks for popping over x They do say that the Toddle bike is a good transition bike for a balance bike, it can be used from 18 months. I don't think the Little Man is quite ready for a balance bike yet but I'm hoping that once he is, having had one of these will make it easier for him.

  4. Wish I'd known about toddlebikes before getting N a balance bike. His is just a touch too big at the mo (so we just have me pushing him round the house at the moment) so one of those would have been brilliant.

  5. thanks for commenting Emma x The thing I love most about the Toddlebike is how easy Little Man took to it, I know it can be a little more difficult for a younger child but they all need to start somewhere. I'm sure N will be zooming around on his balance bike soon enough :-)

  6. He is just having a great time and the bike is a smashing idea. Now that spring might be on the way, I bet he'll want out on it every day. It's just lovely being able to spend time outside with them
