Not quite sure what you should be getting your little one for Christmas this year? Why not think about a balance bike! We think they make great Christmas presents – read on to find out why.
Balance bikes have become a really popular way to teach your kids how to ride a bike. They don’t have any pedals or gears, and teach kids how to balance before they learn anything else. If you’d like to find out more about balance bikes, check out our guide!
So why would you choose a balance bike for your kids this Christmas? Well, here are a few reasons:
- They don’t need a lot of room
Balance bikes are great fun, and to begin with, your kids can enjoy getting used to them around the house (if they’re lucky!). Then they can move on to the garden or drive if you have the space, or the park if not.
However, because balance bikes start kids off from absolute novices, you don’t have to go out on all-day adventures to enjoy them! They’re great for having around to play with when your kids fancy it, and you don’t need to be chasing along on your own bike to keep up!
- By the time your kids are ready to ride further, it’ll be warmer!
This is a bit more of a tactical one. Balance bikes are perfect for the winter because by the time your kids are more confident and ready to get more adventurous, it’ll be nicer outside!
- They’re simple and tough
When it comes to balance bikes, there aren’t really any instructions required. Unwrap it, jump on, and go! Your kids can play with it straight away on Christmas morning, or any other day for that matter. That means while you’re cleaning up the aftermath of Christmas Dinner or just recovering from some festive fun, you can keep an eye on them playing without having to get stuck in the whole time.
- They get kids outside!
Let’s face it – it can be difficult getting the kids outside at the best of times. During the winter holidays, it’s even harder! A balance bike, just like all other bikes, is a great outdoors toy that can keep your kids active and give them a reason to get away from the TV for a bit.
- They give your kids something to play with on days out
Do you go out for a Boxing Day walk? Whether it’s a special occasion or you’re just going out to the park, a balance bike can give kids something to do while you’re sat on a bench enjoying your time off! It also means that your younger kids can be like their older siblings on those days out.
So there you have it – 5 reasons why you should think about asking Santa to put a balance bike under the tree this Christmas! If you’d like to find out more about balance bikes, take a look at our guide. Want to know how to teach your kids to ride on a balance bike? Click here!
