Sorry but 11.5kg for a kids bike.

I made this same mistake with my first born - looked good couldn't believe how heavy it was as I walked across the city and actually in hindsight a mistake. However her learning to ride on it was awful - too heavy for her to turn, deal with hills and gave her no confidence.

I then spent considerably more on a kids bike with both proper components and aluminium frame (a pinnacle Koto) and had her riding within 30 mins of getting it home. She has not looked back since (present bike for her now has 26 inch wheels, disk brakes and is still lighter than this BMX).

Whilst a lot more expensive in this example I would look for something second hand like a Pinnacle Koto (some brands in this segment hold value well though)

Great value but totally agree with above VERY HEAVY
You want the bike to carry you not you carrying the bike so yeah you don't need a heavy bike, heat added for the price though

Yes I would - both my girls have loved it - youngest will be out grown from it during this year (she is 7 but tall for her age).

You look at it and everything is just as a proper bike should be which is what you would expect from evans cycles own brand (which is what pinnacle are)

Isla, frog and easy riders are also good but retain second hand value much more (albeit that means you also do not lose as much buying these second hand)
The nicest bikes for kids are the Islabikes but way too expensive, even second hand they still fetch £250+

But totally agree with the sentiment of heavy bikes. My road bike is 10kg and my new Vitus 29er is 14kg and thats full adult bikes.
