The #ABCs of Toddler Ride Ons and Bikes

When little one gains confidence with independent movement, all they want to do is explore! Their curiosity and excitement guides them and soon, parents find their babies have grown and they have rambunctious toddlers whizzing around the house. Leading wholesaler, Baby Brands Direct, have a great selection of toddler ride ons and bikes that add an extra dimension of excitement to a child’s exploration of their home, allowing them to channel their movement into propelling a cool vehicle. 

Using their feet to push ride ons or bikes forward helps children to build up gross motor skills, as well as strengthening key muscles that will ensure their legs and backs are sturdy and well developed. Steering the bike helps to develop hand-eye coordination, as well as fine motor skills in the fingers and wrists. Navigating around the home on their ride on allows them to increase their spatial awareness skills, as they’ll soon become adept at avoiding walls and other obstacles in their paths. These toys are also great for imaginative play, as kids can imagine themselves zooming down highways or riding their valiant steeds.
