Recently we was contacted by the lovely people at Toddlebike. Who asked us if we would like to review their toddlebike 2. Jess is one of those children who love to be outside even when it is a little bit chilly. She loves been on ride on’s she even got on one and started driving around Mothercare on one of our most recent visits. However, up until now she had not had her own ride on. So of course, we were were offered the toddlebike we could not say no.
I was not actually in when this bike was delivered. My parents thought that it was an empty box because it actually weight 0.8kg. Which is around 3x times lighter than other toddler bikes such as the Scuttlebug. This means that it is not too heavy for toddlers to carry. I have found Jess carrying her own which is always good because she can take it out herself in the summer. You could throw it under the pram and take it to the park should you want. Should you have to pop in the car it would fit in with a pram in the boot as well. This is so easy that you can actually carry it in one hand. A huge bonus because you always need to hold there hand when they are that young but if you are carry a heavy ride on it is not always practical.
This bike is designed for toddlers between the age of 18 months to 3 years. Jess is slap bang in the middle of the age that this is designed for as a two year old. This bike is really easy to control it has really narrow wheels . I think this could be the reason why Jess seems to be able to turn corners very easily meaning she for sure can get a speed on so I have to be careful she does not run me over. This is something which she really likes to do however, I think this is because of her personality rather than the bike,.
The height of the bike is perfect Jess she can reach the handle bars. This is without having to bend over too much or have to stretch. Which must mean that it is very comfortable for her this is something which I have noticed. You always want your child to be very comfortable. This means that Jess wants to spend a lot more time on this than she would if it was not comfortable.
This bike is so hard wearing plastic and we have had mud on it and all I did was wipe it down. So I would say it is super easy to clean which is great if like us you are still using it outdoors. If you have the space unfortunately we do not you could use this indoors. Maybe in the future we will be able to use it in the house when we move but until then it will be an outdoor only toy.
Toddlerbike are waterproof, toddler proof and also come with a 3 year guarantee. Which is always handy with crazy toddlers like Jess who could break anything very easy. I will be recommending these bikes to friends who have children younger than Jess. They are something which I think everyone will love and they are a small business who deserve more love.
The bike comes in three different colours midnight blue, pinky pink and racing red. It does not break the bank coming in at £23.95 with free shipping to UK and Ireland. These would make a great Christmas present and should you want to order one I have a discount code for 10% off with the code Blog17. Toddlebike have since rebranded as Lena. This is the same product however, I think we will be purchasing one for Troy in the future. I am gutted that I actually sold the one Jess had before we moved house. They are now sightly cheaper they are around £20 and can be found on amazon here.
Do you know anyone who would like this bike?
