When To Teach A Child To Ride A Bike

A question we get often from our customers: When should we teach a child to ride? How young is to young to learn to ride a bike? Are the Skuuts and Kiddimoto Balance Bikes too big for my child? Well, because my background is also in physical education, I studied child development, coordination, muscle development and I feel I'm pretty good at answering this question. First both of the bikes are made of natural lacquered wood and the Kiddimoto comes in a wide range of vivid colours. Both of the wooden balance bikes are for children ages 2-5, they provide excellent indoor and outdoor fun and development of large muscle skills and good coordination through riding.
There are major benefits of the bikes that include: Balance, Co-Ordination and movement development, learning through play, physical fitness, steering and independence! These bikes aren't just cool toys, they're a child's first bike that last forever! Children kick off the ground as if running, thus pushing or "skuut-ing" themselves and the bike forward. Unlike the Skuut, the Kiddimoto comes in different designs and colors.
