When Jo from Toddle Bike contacted me about her new concept first balance bike range I knew instantly this was one for Coombe Mill. I had seen bikes without pedals before, but never one so perfectly targeted at the 18 month to 3 year old age group.
What makes Toddle Bike special?
I have 6 toddle bikes around Coombe Mill and have been watching our guests using them over the past month. I can now say from firsthand experience that these are the main benefits:
Bright fun colours.
Lightweight and portable even for a toddler to carry around!
Work equally indoors and outside.
Easy to wipe down and clean.
Easy to ride from the very first go.
Inexpensive at just £23.95 including UK delivery currently from the Toddlebike Shop
Loved by toddlers who can feel like big kids learning to balance and cycle.
Seeing is Believing
Clearly I am a fan having seen the bikes and the wonderful times children here at Coombe Mill have been having. The bikes are located in our toddler play ground and inside our larger properties. As they are so portable they regularly migrate around the farm and further afield too, which is fine with us so long as they come back home at the end of a busy day in use.
In the Toddler Play Area where the bikes live and round the Coombe Car park the tarmac surface is perfect for a beginner:
The More adventurous take their Toddle bike out on the farm. Spot the older children joining in, just to prove how durable they are:
Our lovely sandy beaches are perfect for a Toddle bike, though you have to watch out for the tide when they are abandoned to play in the sand:
