Kiddie Bikes Review

This summer was meant to be one of outdoor games, lazy afternoons in the park and building sandcastles at the beach.  The closest I will be coming to that now is watching the more active inpatients out our bay's window in the rainbow ward garden as they run around enjoying the English weather at its best.

I am lucky that we do have a little garden at home and before the little man fell and inured his leg, we had been making the most of it come rain or shine.  We were sent a Kiddie bike for Dylan to play on and his 'Mote-bike' soon became a favourite toy.  Dylan loves to be outdoors and even in the height of winter, we donned our waterproofs and went puddle splashing, so he hasn't minded the light rain or wind as he pushes himself around the garden.  We were sent the bike suitable for 2-4 year olds and my incredibly tall 23 month old found it a great size for him.

The strong and solid seat meant he wasn't likely to fall off, yet the bike is incredibly light as it is completely plastic.  The stickers give it personality although being a toddler, he does tend to like pulling them off.

Dylan finds the bike easy to steer and push along with his feet and he can climb on and off himself now after having help for a month or so.  It can be used inside and outside and he has no problems turning himself round if he is using it indoors.

Despite the bike being plastic and not looking as hard wearing as some of the other options available, this bike has had constant use for a couple of months and still looks like new.  It has been ridden every day by Dylan and friends that come to visit who are aged 2 and 3 and they all love it.

The bike does come in two size options, 1-3 and 2-4.  I haven't seen the younger one but I would recommend thinking ahead so if your child is nearly 2 or large for their age, I think the 2-4 year version would be fine a little early.  Priced at only £19.90 this is an absolute bargain as it has provided hours of entertainment and hours of peace for me.  I think it is really important to encourage children to play outdoors and this is definitely our favourite garden game.

Although the little man may be out of action for this summer, I know that won't stop him making the most of his motorbike when he is back on his feet over the autumn, and it is light and easy to store ready for next summer when I bet he will be whizzing round on it!
