Wishbone Design in New Zealand have launched a brand new 2 wheel balance bike perfect for kids aged 2+. Based on design concepts mirroring the 1950's motorbike of old this new model brings something new to the Balance Bike market, 14" wheels! These larger wheels make for a smoother ride for your little one.
Sustainably sourced materials make this a great choice for saving planet earth.
Design, ride and quality build - another winner from Wishbone!
If you are graduating from a Balance Bike (Balance Bike) to a Pedal bike here is a good tip.
Your child will already have a good handle on balance. The thing they need to learn is pedalling so start them learning on a gradual slope. This way the bike will coast down slowly while they work on figuring out the pedalling. Balance is natural to them at this stage so if they only have to worry about pedalling it makes it an easier transition.
Good news Canada! We now have FirstBIKE CROSS models available in Orange and FirstBIKE STREET models available in Light Blue and Orange also. These are open for orders now and add a great new look to extend an already great balance bike range. These colours are new to Canada.
We also have all other FirstBIKE accessories and extras back in stock. You can check out the new colours on the links below:
We can't stress enough the importance of teaching kids to ride their balance bikes while always wearing a helmet. We have a rule - no helmet, no ride. Even though it may seem like they are too small to get up enough speed, or they are so close to the ground they won't fall far, the truth is they can seriously hurt themselves if riding without a helmet. Kids can still fall off their bike, and they can get some serious speed on these little Balance Bikes, don't be fooled!
For years we've had people asking us when we would get the Kinderbike range in stock. We're very happy to welcome Kinderbike to Balance Bike Canada. The first two models in the range are the Kinderbike Laufrad 2015 and the Kinderbike mini. Both are available in different colours and offer different features. You get a spare seat pole, brake reflector and more.
It's 2015 and for those of us on the West Coast it's been a very mild winter. Vancouver last weekend almost felt like Winter. For those of you on the East Coast it hasn't been easy but hopefully Spring is glimmering on the horizon. The most recent updates to balance bikes this year include the inclusion of the Wishbone 3-in-1 Recycled Edition, this is reportedly the most adjustable Balance Bike on the market.
There are so many reasons a Balance Bike is the perfect gift for any kid you know this Christmas. Not only does a bike give toddlers the freedom they embrace, but it also gives them the gift of confidence and balance. We have a great range of bike available online but if you need some help choosing a bike for your kids, or grandkids, or even someone else's kids, here are our 3 bestselling balance bikes for Christmas this year:
We're super excited to annouce we now have the Wishbone 3-in-1 Recycled Edition balance bike available to buy. This RE edition is made using 100% post recycled materials, in fact, they gather carpets from all over the USA and process it into a strong and sturdy frame. WIth the new model they have also introduced a new proprietary RotafixTM system which allows even more flexibility in how you fit the bike for your child.
Hello to all our wonderful customers! We know you've all been waiting patiently for new FirstBIKE stock to arrive in Canada and we appreciate your patience. We have an update that the arrival in Canada will be first week of July. We then need them to clear customs and hopefully we'll have them available for sale for you closely after.
Correct. You can view them online or print them. We like to think it is more friendly to the earth not to have the instructions printed, and this seems as convenient.
