Choosing The Right Wooden Balance Bike

Prince Lionheart Wooden Balance BikeA Wooden Balance Bike is what I should have bought for my son in his early days of cycling.
Not that the Smart Trike we did buy for him wasn’t any good, on the contrary it was great. Well apart from the dodgy tyres!

It was really great for pushing him around the village, down the shops and of in the woods on our bear hunts.

When it came to taking off the parent handle of the smart trike though, my son struggled to work the pedals. Now it’s in the garden collecting rain water for my Son’s “experiments”…

After the Smart Trike we got him a Firemans Bike, but I really wish I had known more about Balence Bikes beforehand.

I think a Balence Bike would have been better to help my Son not have to have stabilisers. They are quick and easy for kids to just hop on and go. Helping to make children feel more confident on just two wheels with their feet to help.

When you star to look into the massive amounts of Wooden Balance Bikes that are available it can be a bit overwhelming. I’ve done loads of research into which Wooden Balance Bikes I think are the best available right now.

How are Wooden Balance Bikes Made?

Wooden Balance Bikes come in lots of different styles but most are essentially simply made of five different elements. They have a front and rear wheel generally with normal Bike tyres, then the frame is made up of three molded bits of wood bolted together.

You can get lots of balance bikes that are constructed on metal, but I have to say I like the wooden ones best, they feel more organic and like they are gong to last for generations.

Most of the Wooden Balance Bikes available will be made of plywood which is thin slices of wood stuck together, giving a uniform surface, this is good for children’s toys as you get a smooth finish. Some of the more expensive ones though many be made of solid wood which will be more sturdy.

Basic Wooden Balance Bikes

If you are looking to spend £30-£60 on your childs new Wooden Balance Bike then I would suggest you look at the following Basic Wooden Balance Bikes to get a good idea of what types are available.

They all share similarities in the way they are built, but with all bikes the more you pay the better components you will get. Not that that can necessarily mean your Wooden Balance Bikes will last any less time than a more expensive one.
