Balance Bikes are a great way for practising balance, keeping upright and encouraging activity which in turn develops physical strength. From about 18months these toys become more sought after as a stepping stone before acquiring bikes with pedals and can eliminate the need for attaching balance wheels on first bikes.

Practising getting on and off, walking and running with their balance bike is a great way to develop motor skills, co-ordination and strength. Little ones will most likely continue to enjoy balance bikes until around the age of 4 or 5 years when they are more likely to want to move onto a bike with pedals.

Baby Brands Direct supplies a range of quality toddler bikes including balance bikes from leading wood toy manufacturer Janod in a range of appealing colours and styles.
