Deals on Balance Bikes for Toddlers

Balance bikes are a superb option for toddlers and children not yet able to ride a pedal bike without stabilisers. For us, a balance bike was the natural upgrade for our son when he was just under 2 years old and had outgrown his Scuttlebug.

Prices of balance bikes for toddlers range from a few quid to hundreds of pounds. But whatever you’ve budgeted for a balance bike, you’ll want to know you’re getting a good deal. Here are our favourite deals from Amazon:

The Boring Bit

All information is accurate at the time of writing, but please do check the product descriptions closely. Also, while Amazon is often the cheapest for balance bikes, there are some models not available for Amazon and some (like the Yvelo Junior) that are sometimes cheaper elsewhere. Check a range of shops and do your price comparison.
