Which Balance Bike Should I Buy?
With so much choice available for pretty much everything these days (never mind balance bikes), we understand how confusing it can be to make buying decisions.
That’s why we’ve come up with fourteen reasons why you should choose Kiddimoto balance bikes and ride-ons for your little explorer…
We’re the UK’s original balance bike company.
That’s right, Kiddimoto is the original and best UK balance bike company. Established in 2004 as a one-man enterprise, Kiddimoto has a proud history of producing quality balance bikes, ride-ons and accessories. So if you want to buy British then look no further than Kiddimoto – the original and still the best.
We conquered the Dragons.
In 2011, Kiddimoto founder Simon Booth made it through to the televised stages of BBC Television’s Dragon’s Den programme seeking investment and expertise to take the business forward. He left with not one but two offers from successful entrepreneurs Duncan Bannatyne and Hilary Devey!
Royal seal of approval.
We’ve received a number of awards over the years, but in 2015 we were given our highest accolade yet when we were invited to Buckingham Palace to receive an honour from Queen Elizabeth II no less. We were recognised for outstanding achievement in the field of International Trade to cap a fantastic few years of global growth.
It’s all about you…
You’ve all heard the frustratingly familiar call centre message, ‘Your call is important to us…’, but at Kiddimoto, it really is important. We’re a small company and without our customers we wouldn’t exist, so we pride ourselves on our levels of service. You can email, call us here or you can even message us on our official Facebook page.
Widest range of helmets.
We don’t just make balance bikes at Kiddimoto, we also have the widest selection of kids’ cycle helmets of any balance bike company. Whether your little one likes pirates, polkadots, bunnies or butterflies, we have something for everyone. Our Red Goggle helmet even made it into New York’s Museum of Modern Art! View our full range here.
Most of our bikes and ride-ons require some assembly out of the box before they’re ready to ride. While this is a straightforward process that most people will be able to do easily, we understand that if you haven’t built a bike before then it can be tricky. That’s why we’ve put together some helpful videos to guide you through the process – take a look at our Assembly section in the Useful Info menu above.
Our customers love our balance bikes.
If you still aren’t convinced, then don’t take our word for it. Our customers consistently rate our products and customer service as excellent, with an average rating of 4.7 our of 5 stars on our review system. We know how important it is to shop around before choosing what to buy, so either check out the reviews beneath our products, or see all reviews here.
We have officially licensed Balance Bikes designed with Motorcycle Heroes.
To celebrate the champions of the motorcycle world we have created a Heroes range of balance bikes, matching helmets and now scooters dedicated to individual racers! The collection includes the iconic MotoGP racing greats of today and yesteryear with each bike including the rider’s signature printed on the petrol tank. From Carl Fogarty to Evel Knievel we have a Superbike suitable for any budding motorcycle fan.
Expansion in our award-winning ride-on collection.
Last year saw the launch of the beautiful award-winning London Bus – read about it’s journey here. This year we have introduced 2 new ride-ons to our Transport collection. To follow our classic theme of the London Bus, our new Fire Engine and Tractor come with built in toy storage and fully functional steering. Perfect for helping active toddlers develop their key motor skills whilst having bundles of fun!
We have the largest range of kids cycling accessories.
As well as our beautiful helmets we also stock bells, backpacks, and gloves all in our original designs so you can match your little ones accessories to their balance bike. So why not let your little one makes some noise with a bell for their new bike! And be sure to protect those precious little hands from nasty grazes with our children’s cycling mitts.
Forefront of Balance Bike innovation.
The Kiddimoto Karbon – designed as a show piece for our busy events calendar. The only carbon fibre balance bike on the planet has a sleek and sturdy frame weighing only 350 grams! The Karbon also comes complete with a Kiddimoto designed gel saddle making it quite simply, the ultimate in two-wheeled luxury.
Regular design updates.
We regularly update our beautiful balance bike collections with new designs. This year has seen the introduction of the Fleur, Fossil and Stars design. With the Stars design taking centre stage in our vote for your favourite Facebook competition because of it’s gender neutral colours and bright design.
We don’t just design balance bikes!
As well as our balance bikes, ride-ons and accessories we also have our stylish three-wheeled scooters – the Kiddimoto U-Zoom. Complete with an adjustable handlebar stem that are fully folding, making them super easy to pick up and carry. The easy-lean steering system helps develop balance and coordination, whilst the super grippy footplate ensures a safe and secure ride.
So, we hope that has helped you decide which balance bike to buy!
