Strider Balance Bike


My youngest daughter is at the stage where she wants to do everything her older brothers and sister do. My oldest who has just turned 16 is always out on his bike, skateboard or scooter and my 4 year old son is always on his scooter or balance bike so when we gave this to Molly for her third birthday she was over the moon to have her own set of wheels. 
Since discovering balance bikes I haven’t looked back to a bike with stabilizers to teach my children how to ride a bike. If there is one thing I have never enjoyed teaching the kids, it’s how to ride a bike. Running along, bent over whilst keeping your child upright and trying not to fall over while at the same time you are trying to build their confidence is not easy. 
When I learnt to ride a bike I  had to teach myself, I don’t remember anyone holding me while I tried to keep my balance on what was then a trendy chopper bike that had been handed down through several siblings and other children, it was red and rusty in places but I didn’t care if it meant a bit of freedom I was determined to learn. I still bear the scar on my hand from trying to cycle down a narrow path edged with a rusty corrugated iron panel that had jagged bits at the bottom and of course that was the bit I landed on. 
Anyway enough about my memories! 
George was given a balance bike a while ago and after seeing how quickly his balancing skills progressed I knew it was the way forward for Molly too. She is always very cautious about physical play when she is exploring something new and we are slowly building up her confidence to help her do things for herself. she tries really hard but is usually quite slow on her scooter and one of us usually ends up pulling her along so I was really keen to see how she would react on her own bike. She has been keen to take it out quite often but is still quite slow and its taking her some time to coordinate sitting and running with it at the same time but I am sure she will get there with practice, its nice to see her trying. 

So, let me tell you about the brand Strider and about their balance bikes.
Strider have now sold over 1,000,000 bikes. All bikes are sold with a no quibble refund policy if you aren’t happy with your bike. They offer free next day delivery and have an after sales service.
One of the greatest things is they are not just bikes for toddlers either, they have sizes that range up to adults. The web store also has a range of accessories and spare parts too.

Prices for the bikes start at £60 and upwards, we have the sport model which retails at £80. It comes in 7 different colours and I have to say I adore the bright pink colour that we chose. The Sport is suitable for ages 18 months to 5 years, this is a bike that is going to last. Its completely adjustable to suit different sizes and both the handlebars and saddle can be adjusted without needing any tools, a brilliant feature in my opinion. 
Included in the box is a bonus padded seat and XL post which can be added as your child grows. It’s designed to be lightweight so the child can handle it more easily, I can definitely say I felt a difference in comparison to a normal bike, it is really lightweight but still has a good quality, sturdy feel to it. Assembly was really easy and also completed without the need for any tools.
The tyres are flat-free tyres which are a lightweight alternative to air filled tyres which can be purchased and fitted when your child is able to handle a bit more weight. 
I review products honestly and fairly and I have to say that I just can’t find any fault with this at all, its a really good quality balance bike that I am more than happy with and will be recommending this to friends and family, everything about it is fantastic, from the handle bars to the wheels. 

Strider also run events, here is what they have to say….
