Review: Toddle Bike

Monday, 24 November 2014


The number one pre balance bike for toddlers, Toddlebike is aimed at children aged 1-3 years who can confidently walk. Zach is lucky enough to be part of the 2014 Toddlebike team and has been putting it to the test.  

When we first received the Toddlebike the house practically erupted with excitement. (Well two excited kids make a lot of noise). We had the obvious argument of who was going to ride it first but being Zach's he got the first turn. He didn't quite understand to sit on the seat though and jumped straight onto the bar between the seat and handle and zoomed around the room. Gracie took advantage and jumped on the seat. They thought it was hilarious riding around together as quick as possible! For the next few days Zach was constantly playing on his Toddlebike, he even learnt to sit on the seat pretty quick. As he had got the hang of it we decided it was time to take it for a road test outside and so took the kids on a little Bike ride.


I was amazed at how well he could control the bike. He rides so fast without tipping over at all and has mastered turning around a full 360 without even stopping. I got a great video of him racing down the street miles ahead of Gracie on her big girl bike. I found that it is great for getting him around quickly outside. It's very lightweight so you don't have to worry about them getting bored and wanting to walk home (not that that happened at all!) as it can easily be carried or hung from a pushchair. I figured it would be great for taking on trips to the park or on a UK holiday as it doesn't take up much room anywhere.


The novelty still hasn't worn off after a few weeks of use. Zach rides it around the house daily (and Gracie when she can pinch a go) in fact her loves it so much he will not let me take the label off! Gracie has tassels on her bike so this is obviously his equivalent! I'd love to see some little accessories available eventually to make them just like the bikes their older siblings may have.

 The bike comes in three different colours; Primary, Pink and Neon. I'm glad that Zach got the Neon as the colours or so bright and attractive. The Toddlebike costs £23.95 with free UK/Ireland delivery. It is definitely well worth the price. It is available to buy from Amazon, John Lewis or direct from the Toddlebike website www.toddlebike.co.uk/shop.

    1. Aww that's a shame it's typical that things tend to be released once you have no need for them anymore!

    So very cute. We are fans of balance bikes here now Harry is older - although his balance is currently rather rubbish lol

    1. Definitely I always judge any kind of toy/game etc by whether they return to them still after a few weeks rather than being bored of them

    1. My eldest was never keen on ride ons (until her brother came along and she suddenly took an interest in anything that's not hers) Zach loves them though
