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.
