12” GIANT PRE PUSH - LIGHT BLUE
Balance Bikes (also called training bikes) are pedal-less bikes designed to provide fun and exercise and to teach the basic skills of steering, balance and co-ordination.
They are suited to a child from 2 to 5 years of age.
It cuts the learning “gradient” down. The child simply sits astride the balance bike and “walks” while steering with the handlebars. It effectively allows them to learn balance without having to learn to pedal at the same time. They are also called prebikes or first bikes.
Balance bikes are becoming increasingly popular, as it is so much easier to learn to ride. Learning to ride can be achieved at their own pace. A less confident child can “walk” it around for as long as they like, then when ready, they can gradually lift their feet and scoot along until they are ready to simply push off and just roll along. More confident kids will be flying around with huge smiles in no time at all.
Because they have a sturdy aluminium frame and well constructed wheels they are virtually trouble free, and can be passed down from child to child.
