Best 12 inch Balance Bike for 2 year olds
The Kivdelo Rookie 12 balance bike is designed to provide your little one with the perfect foundation for many years of great riding. We designed the Rookie 12 to not only be easy to ride but also easy to learn how to ride. Putting your child on a balance bike teaches them to balance, and balance is a primary factor in learning to ride a bike.
Learning balance before pedals are introduced speeds up the transition to a pedal bike, it is far easier to learn one new skill than trying to learn 3 at one time (such as balance, pedaling, and braking), especially if you are 2 years old. By mastering the ride on our Rookie 12 early, your child will soon be ready for a pedal bike, where they can enjoy a ride on our super cute and equally awesome Rookie Hybrid balance to pedal bikes.

“The best balance bike to learn balance and control for children aged 18months and over”
A 12-inch balance bike is a perfect bike for 2-year-olds (and up!) as they teach kids to balance on two wheels and how to ride independently. Balance bikes are also called strider bikes, glider bikes, running bikes, or toddler push bikes. Looking for the best balance bike for your toddler, or pre-schooler? Check out our Rookie 12 which is the lightest balance bike with air-filled tyres in Australia.
Children can start riding balance bikes when they’re around 18 months to two years old. In most cases, children will move on to a bike with pedals at around the age of four. There isn’t a top-end restriction on age, though, and you can even get balance bikes for older kids and adults. It’s important to remember that balance bikes need to be the correct size for their rider: bike fit is just as important for kids as it is for adults. Of course, children grow quickly between the ages of two and five, so ideally you’ll want to select a balance bike that is adjustable.

How do you ride a balance bike?
Balance bikes are a great starting point for kids when they’re learning to ride. They get the hang of balancing while moving without relying on stabilizers, so the transition to a pedal bike is often much quicker. Let your child stride along aboard the balance bike. Let them enjoy the feeling of movement under their own power. As children get stronger and more confident, the gliding gets longer and faster. Once they reach this point, they’re already past stabilizers.

What makes a Kidvelo Rookie 12 balance bike the best First Bike?
The Kidvelo Rookie 12 balance bike has been designed from the ground up with children from the age of 18 months to 4.5 years in mind. Firstly, we reduced the unwanted weight to make the bike ultra lightweight (2.9kgs) and easy to manage by a 2-year-old. Secondly, we added real air tyres to give our little riders a more comfortable ride and with all-terrain tyres. Thirdly, we made the bike fully adjustable so the bike grows with your child. Lastly, we offer a 5-year warranty on the quality of our bikes so they can be passed on to younger siblings or family down the track, giving parents peace of mind in their first bike purchase.
