There is one thing I love more than toys is encouraging my children to play outside. They love to be in the fresh air and so do I. We recently got asked to review the Yvolution balance bike which I couldn't say No too. Balance bike if you are not aware are bikes with no pedals, they provide a way of learning to ride a bike with out stabilisers. Its all about helping your child learn to balance on two wheels. Ami was over joyed as you can see from the photos, she loves bikes. She was a little disappointed it didn't have pedals. She is rather speedy it was hard to keep up at times.
The Bike is very easy to put to gather and comes with minimal parts, I did it all my self with the assistance of Ami. It required no extra tools than those provided in the box. You can adjust the bike so it can grow with your child. Its very easy to adjust the seat to get the right height. Which was handy when Son Son wanted ago, he still is too small for it but never wants to miss out.
Its a very study bike and is just perfect for Ami, I like the size of the wheels too. We have another balance bike which looks tiny in comparison and the wheels on that are tiny. Ami has developed a good skill of balancing and has improved on a bigger bike more suitable for her size. She asks to take it everywhere and always wants to show the bike of to all the neighbours. I think because her older brothers bike is green she loves it even more.
I hope to one day make the transition to pedals, but I find balance bikes to be much more cute. Pedals means that she is growing up but I am not ready for that yet. The best thing about balance bikes is no sorting oily chains out. They just sit on the bike and Pedal with there feet. Its great because they can steer the bike giving much need cofidence for when riding with two wheels. We have really loved the bike. I was more than impressed with everything, from the gripped handles to the wide wheels.
