Nobody wants to compromise safety with confidence in learning to ride a bike. Highly recommended by millions of parents and children around the world, you can't go wrong with a balance bike as a first purchase for your toddler. Balance bikes look exactly the same as regular bicycles, but come without pedals or cranks that help a little child acquire the basics of balancing on two wheels. Remembering how riding a bike is a special part of childhood, we've selected a model of a balance bike by Banwood, a Germany-based family owned company specialised in bicycles for children from three years old. It will be a great starting point for a young rider's first steps before they're ready for a pedal bike. What we like about the Banwood bikes are its durable high-end materials that are great for all weathers and easy to wipe down. With a child-friendly frame, adjustable handlebars and seat to suit a growing child, the bike will be usable for a longer period than you might expect. It comes with a wicker basket and bell that make the ride more practical, efficient and fun. Weighing in at 4.5kg, the bike is available in a range of colours. You can buy the bike at Bimbo Living online store which is their solely distributor in Hong Kong. This would make a fantastic gift for a cycling mad kid.
