Review: Toddlebike2 – The pre-balance bike for toddlers

Our lovely little Daisy is 18 months old now. She is a confident walker, loves to get outside and explore and has a TON of toys at home. I’m always really happy to find new toys and items that can help her with her mobility, learning and generally just growing her own confidence. On a past holiday to Centerparcs I saw little toddlers, similar to the age that Daisy is now, and they were using balance bikes. Now Daisy is a little young for a balance bike still so when we were offered the chance to review the Toddlebike2 I was thrilled!

Toddlebike2

The Toddlebike2 is designed to help toddlers learn to be more independent, and get them on the right path to learning how to cycle.

This Toddlebike2 is great for both indoor and outdoor use, so that is ideal for us. As we are home a couple of days a week at the moment.

Steering for the Toddlebike2

As I live in a flat, and have Daisy and all her items to carry down, I’m really happy that the Toddlebike2 only weighs 0.8kg! This is significantly lighter than scooters and balance bikes. Around 3x lighter!

Seat area of the Toddlebike2

This is the 2nd generation of Toddlbike, hence the name Toddlebike2, and it has easy-reach handlebars, improved lighter steering, a more centralised seating position and a crossbar raised in line with seat. There is also a 3 year no-quibble guarantee with the Toddlebike2. The Toddlebike2 retails for £23.95 including free UK/Ireland shipping.

What did Daisy think of the Toddlebike2?

When Daisy first saw this she kept saying ‘wow, car’… Over and over! So adorable. Daisy found it a little difficult to climb on to the Toddlebike2 at first, just because it was a new body movement for her. Within a couple of days she was a pro and was able to climb on and off no problem at all.

From what I can tell Daisy really enjoys playing with it. She will climb on it and have a little walk around. She will also lift it up and carry it around too, it really is that lightweight.

I’m really happy to see Daisy learning the first stages of independent riding. The Toddlebike2 is lightweight, bright, fun and best of all it helps Daisy be nice and active throughout the day… even if we are stuck at home!

    Well this is something to consider then as a Christmasresent for my now 16 months old. She absolutely loves sitting on her brother’s bike wearing helmet and being pushed around.
