About Page

Kiddimoto is the UK’s original balance bike company. We produce a wide range of award-winning balance bikes and matching accessories from our headquarters in rural Somerset. We’ve grown from a tiny one-man-show to a successful global operation with a host of awards. Read our story below…


The First Kiddimoto Balance Bike Was Born

Kiddimoto was born after founder Simon Booth built a wooden prototype of a superbike inspired balance bike in his flat in Axbridge, Somerset.
