TykesBykes is a great way to teach your child balance and give them a safe step between tricycle and bicycle!
TykesBykes are balance bikes, they do not have pedals, instead your child propels themselves forward using their own feet. TykesBykes are well made and lightweight so your child can handle them easily while learning that essential skill.
The thing that impressed me the most about TykesBykes is how well made they are! I got the yellow bike for my nephew and was impressed at how durable the bike is while still being lightweight! Assembly was pretty easy, though I will admit that my inability to follow basic directions meant that my wonderful fiance assembled the TykesByke for me. Though I am confident, after watching him do it, that I was making it far too complicated and assembly is actually very easy, especially considering there were no pedals or chains to put together.
I also really love the over-all appearance of the TykesByke. It looks like a grown up bike, not a kids bike, which is much more appealing to most kids, IMO. The TykesByke is heading my nephews way and his Dad is a big biker and triatholon competitor so I know my nephew will want a bike that looks more like Daddy's. And my brother doesn't have a bike with Bat Man or Dora on it! TykesBykes come in black, orange, yellow, blue, and pink. The regular TykesByke is 12" tall and TykesByke is soon introducing a slightly larger (14") TykesByke that will be available to ship around December 20th (just in time for Christmas!).
And stay tuned! As soon as there is no longer snow on the ground I will post a video of my nephew trying out his TykesByke! Until then, here's a great video of another little one enjoying her TykesByke!
