Kinderfeets Balance Bike Review

I love anything for my boys that will keep them active and burn off their excess energy! And this adorable super fun wooden balance bike from Kinderfeets surely does the trick!

Both boys could hardly wait to tear into the box when it arrived on our porch. We put it together right away and Big Brother was zooming around the house in no time! As you can see in the photo, there are very few parts and everything is included that you need to put the bike together. So easy even Big Brother was helping me with the Allen Wrenches. I'd say maybe 10 minutes in all from box to biking!

Kinderfeets has really put a lot of thought into all the details to make this balance bike unique. For one there are foot pegs for your kiddos feet once they have mastered their balance. This give their little legs a rest allowing them to cruise around. Another is the no air tires. Go anywhere and everywhere with no worry of a flat tire. The first time we went riding in our neighborhood with this bike Big Brother ran over a nail. It was sticking straight out of the wheel. I pulled it out and we were on our way. Air tires would have made for one sad kid walking home with his bike. Instead we continued on our merry way.

The bike also has a low step through frame which allows for lower settings of the seat and for smaller our younger kids to be able to ride. And you know this was created by a parent as it has a washable seat cover. Um hello, super smart. Especially with my boys.

Even with all of those awesome features, my very favorite feature of this bike is the chalkboard finish. Not only will your kids already love their Kinderfeets bike, but they can now customize it in anyway they choose. Each day your child can have a new a fun bike design. And you might think chalkboard would be a black finish but that is just one of 6 different colors you can choose from. We reviewed the yellow bike, but you can also get black, red, pink, green, blue or natural wood with no chalkboard finish.
Kinderfeets bikes are designed for ages 2 and up and with a weight limit up to 65 pounds. Little Brother is two and could sit on the bike with the seat at it's lowest, but he needs more practice to balance and keep upright still. Big Brother on the other hand is four and a half and we had the seat on the highest setting for him. He could easily zoom all over. Big Brother has really long legs so the frame looked a tad bit small for him, although at 38 pounds he could ride it for quite some time before ever reaching the weight limit.

Big Brother does not do good with training wheels. He thinks they are scary with the tipping they still allow. With a balance bike or push bike there are no need for training wheels. Your child will learn balance at a safe height and many children will move right into a larger pedal bike with no training wheels once they are ready.

What I also love about Kinderfeets and balance bikes in general is that they can go anywhere and over anything. This is because your child's feet are pushing along, just as if they are walking or running. Over sticks, grass, hills, rocks and more. Great for camping and trails. Have you ever been trail riding with training wheels? No way!

If you are looking for a bike for your little one, a Kinderfeets Balance Bike is a smart choice that will grow with your child. A classy, fun and sturdy design that is sure to keep your child on the move for hours and hours and days and days! At $130 ($109 on sale as of writing this post) you will get your money's worth to every last cent with this bike.

You can find Kinderfeets on Facebook and I recently spotted them in my Natural Child World Magazine making headlines as a top natural "green" option for your kiddos. My kids are happy. I'm happy. Be happy too and check out Kinderfeets! Guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
