Here at Coombe Mill we have been top supporters of Jo Hockley and her clever Toddlebike range since they first came to market. We kindly received a few early bikes to put through their paces. Given our bikes remain outdoors in a ride on playground all year round and are used each week by new owners you might expect that over 2 years later they would be showing their age. Not a bit of it, our Toddlebikes receive a hose down with the other play equipment and come up looking as good as new. This is a testament to how well built they are which is quite remarkable for the lightest bike on the market!
Knowing that Toddlebike Mark 2 was being launched there was no doubt in my mind we would want to check it out. However I was worried it might lose some of its core qualities of being super lightweight, eye catching, durable and perfect for early walkers. I’m thrilled to say that the Toddlebike2 retains all these key features and manages to add even more functionality.
However it isn’t what is printed on the website that impresses, or the amazing value at under £25 or anything I write here; it is the sheer joy on little ones faces as they manoeuvre along any terrain that is the real proof that Jo had got it right again.
I feel like we have a bit of a ‘Toddlebike fleet’ forming here on the farm as they never wear out and I decided they would be perfect to add to our games afternoon for activity hour. We had more complex games for the older children and Toddlebike races for the youngsters. It was so much fun watching them go and the new red Series 2 was in hot demand proving the design is eye-catching to a discerning young audience.
It was all too much for the older children and even though they had their own games coming up they couldn’t resist a go on the Toddlebikes. Just as well the bikes are so sturdy so we could indulge them in a little fun!
If you have a little one just walking or aged around 18 months plus the Toddlebike2 would make a wonderful Christmas present. This is something that will be used day after day indoors or outside and still live to be passed on to siblings in years to come. All this can be yours for just £23.95 on the Toddlebike Website.
