Today, my son rode his bike without stabilisers for the first time. He literally taught himself. How? Well, I reckon it's thanks to his balance bike. That showed him there's nothing to be scare of and how to glide with no feet on the ground. Want one? This Balance Training Bike from Argos is a great buy at just £15.
The Balance Training Bike from Argos was originally £25, so you're saving a tenner. It's great for this time of year, when the weather is nice and the kids can get out to play.
They are ideal for enticing stubborn little ones that don't like to walk to nursery. You'll see a big confidence when on the bike, and they are a brilliant aid for those learning to ride a "big boy's or girl's" bike.
Co-ordination is key when learning to ride, and a pedal-free bike like this is great for honing those balancing skills.
A lot of balance bikes are wooden, but I find the steel frame ones more sturdy, just like this Argos one.
The frame size is 19.7" and the wheel size is 10". The EVA puncture-proof tyres are a godsend, as it means no repairs or pumping up required.
This balance bike does come with stabilisers, but in my experience and I'm sure many would agree with me - you're better without.
Suitable for children aged 3 years and over.
Comes with manufacturer's 2 year guarantee.
