Once a child has mastered those all-important first steps it is time for exploration and adventure. What better way to help them along than with their first ride-on toy. As their independence and confidence grow they will be whizzing around just like the bigger kids do on their bikes. Balance bikes are a great way to start them on their journey.

Here at Top Toy Guide, we like to find what’s popular and what’s new in the world of ride-on and bikes. It is serious business choosing a child’s first ride-on, balance bike or second bike. That’s why it’s best to check out what’s hot beforehand so there are no disappointed faces.

Kids can’t wait to have their own scooter, trike or any other foot powered ride-on toy as there mobility and sense of freedom takes hold. There is a fantastic range of balance bikes, ride-on toys for preschoolers. Best of all, they include some of their favourite characters they love on TV.

Ride-on Toys

The introduction of ride-on toys balance bikes and wheeled toys is so important. Indoor and outdoor bikes promote physical activity which is an essential part of healthy development. Starting kids off with ride-on toys at an early age helps improve their balance and coordination. However, it is essential to make sure the ride-on toy is suitable for the age of the child and that it is well made.

Children are very receptive to colour so buying a colourful ride-on toy will bring much joy. And the more real it looks the better! There are many types of ride-ons and some double as a walker for very young toddlers. These can be found based on popular themes like Thomas and Friends, Fireman Sam, In the Night Garden, etc.

Trikes, balance bikes and scooters are loved by kids and they never seem to lose their appeal. Good examples include Toy Story Trike, Peppa Pig Trike for ages 18 months and over. Also Smart Trike for 10 to 36 months and Smart Trike Scooter for ages 3 to 6-year-olds. A popular scooter for girls is the Hello Kitty micro scooter and Barbie inline scooter these are for ages 5 and over.

Scooters and Helmets

It won’t seem long before they have passed the balance bike ride-on stage. The will be soon looking forward to their first bike. So it’s important to remember the safety and protective issues when buying a first ride-on toy, bike, trike or scooter.

There are many things to consider such as sturdiness, size and essential protective items such as helmet, knee pads and elbow pads. Most importantly it’s not wise to think a child will be fine on a bike that’s too big just because they will grow into it. So it is best to buy an adjustable bike that grows as the child does.

Buying a First Bike

When it comes to buying a bike it is important to get the right size to match the age and height of the child. It is also worth looking for bikes with adjustable seats and handlebars. The range of adjustable bikes can include popular characters as well as traditional style bikes like Barbie bikes, Dora the Explorer, and Fifi and the Flowerpots, Hello Kitty 16in bike, plus a Raleigh 12in Ziggy boy’s bike for younger riders.

Raleigh has a good range of kids bikes for 8-year-olds and over like the Challenge BMX Deluth unisex bike and Raleigh Blaze BMX with Gyro. Kids Helmets, pads and bell sets are essential accessories and can be found sporting kids favourite characters like Ben 10, Disney Princess, Spiderman and Star Wars Clones.

Guide to finding the right size bike for your child:

Each bike manufacturer has their own guide to the suitability of bikes for children. The following guide gives you a rough idea what to look out for when buying a first bike or second bike by showing the wheel diameter sizes that are most appropriate for the age and height of the child.

Height, Wheel Size and Age of Child:

  • 98-112cm:   12” bike for 3-5 years with removable stabilisers
  • 105-117cm: 14” bike for 4-6 years with removable stabilisers
  • 112-125cm: 16” bike for 5-7 years
  • 117-129cm: 18” bike for 6-8 years
  • 125-136cm: 20” bike for 7-9 years
  • 130-141cm: 24” bike for 8-10 years

A bike that is too big or too small is more difficult to control, increasing the risk of accidents. It is best to measure the child’s height first before deciding on buying a bike if this is not possible then use the child’s as age as a guide.

Some kid’s bikes come complete with stabilisers; others do not, but they can be purchased separately and can easily be fitted. As a rule, stabilisers can only be fitted to bikes with wheels up to 16″.
