wow. amazing price. good find!

Great price. Ordered :-)

Pointless piece of kit

Missed it last time at this price!!! Thanks for posting

Heat for the price even though I'm not convinced these a gimmick worth buying, what happened to good old fashion teaching your kids to ride a bike whilst they screaming 'don't let go'

Teaches kids balance on two wheels rather than using stabilisers on a bike....excellent!

how do they ride on it..? there is no side wheels...slightly raised above ground or pedals to actually learn riding:| i think cam2012 is right on that comment...

Great find, I paid £40 last year for the same one for my little one x

it's a balance bike. Not a peddle bike. it's designed to help young children to balance on 2 wheels rather than go from stabilisers to 2 wheels. They're not 'gimmicks', they are actually really good. My 3 year old can ride on a 2 wheel pedal bike, thanks to learning on a balance bike.

The ones making the negative comments obviously haven't seen kids riding a balance bike!

For those not sure. Neither was I until I saw a video on YouTube and it really made sense. Until I watched it, I couldn't get it either but these really help with stability. I'll see if I can find a link.

Already been posted, whether you think its a good piece of kit or not still a great price, hot!

daughter was 5 the old fashion way, 3yr first bike, no prizes for how quickly just memory of teaching her. So yh its a gimmick for me.

But gave heat for price anyway

Two ordered can't go wrong for this price!!!!

Brill, can't believe I almost ordered 2 days ago!!!

Yeah I agree, I learned to ride on a pedal bike and have ridden one for 20 years, but now having tried one of these and I wouldn't be going back to pedals.

ordered this earlier today for £23.99!!

Just called Amazon and they refunded the £8 phew!!

Ordered - Thanks.

Bargain price! Ordered :-)

Would you say a 2yr old would be ok with this?

What many people don't realise is that balance bikes are the same as normal bikes without installing the pedals. In the end the child will need pedals so my advice is not to buy one and instead buy a normal bike and let the child use it without the pedals first.

Here's the formula:
Balance bike = Normal bike (don't install the pedals and stabilisers)

Its a balance bike! its supposed to teach the kids to roll with their legs out just in case instead of relying on the stabilisers, most kids learn this skill on scooters these days and trans-fare it to the bike at a later stage.
You find me a 3 year old who is happy to pedal.

Mine's pretty happy, not 4 yet and been off her stabilisers since summer. Each to their own, but she always had a pedal bike, since she was 2 but agree with other comments that these have their place and she benefitted from using a 2 wheel scooter to improve her balance. IMO, the best method is lots of time spent with them, stay calm and keep it fun, be it with pedals or not.

These balance bike are great for children that have balance issues and disabled children so hot for me as these can go into hundreds from the specialists

Balance bikes are actually really good for children with balance issues. These are also good for children that have disabilities as physio therapist recommend them and they can go into hundreds of pounds so getting a hot from me

Great price. Been keeping an eye out for a good deal on a balance bike for my (not disabled and has no balance issues) nephew and this fits the bill!

Why are there so many balance bike haters out there, bit of a strange thing to pick to troll over....?

we just got my son one of these for his 4th birthday a couple of days ago, he loves it we've been out today on it I would recommend it.

Or for £15 you could not bother with the faff of taking the pedals off and having a chain and gear to get caught in.

Hot thanks ordered for my 2 year old. Was looking for helmet and safety pads (knee wrist and elbow) and saw this great find on eBayebay.co.uk/itm…346
Comes with safety gear and adjustable inline or triline toddler size 8 to 11 skates. Worth the £15 for just the helmet and pads so the skates will be an added Xmas main gift, that's 2 main presents sorted for £30 so only stocking fillers to get so thanks op am well happy. Also both presents will keep us healthy active and outside.
Not posted the skates and pads separate on here as only 9 left but also other sellers doing for similar price.
Christmas sorted, wallet happy heat added.

Yes, definitely, check out the clips on you tube, these aren't just bikes without pedals, they are really small and lightweight, there's a fab clip of a toddler off roading on one. I've bought for our son for Christmas and he will be 2 years 2 months on the day.

Great deal thanks OP!

My lad had one and loved it. When we moved him to a proper bike he could ride it straight away whilst all his chums and school mates who went the old fashioned stabiliser route were all struggling and were kept on stabilisers too long!

He can outride all of them now a few years on! Ordered one of these for my daughter now.

Ordered for my daughters 2nd birthday!! So excited!! Shame I've got to get through Christmas before giving this to her!!

Just ordered for my 2 year old too! Bargain and I'm sure I'll almost make my money back on eBay when she's ready for a pedal bike!

your right. ..I used to think the same how do they work in principle.
and my little boy has one now and he loves it.
it does make such a different instead of just getting on with peddles.
he now has one with peddles and still goes on his balance bike.
after all kids enjoy them and that's what matters.
And this price is a bargain.
You can't even buy second hand ones at this cost.

Thanks OP, got the 'last one' (just says 2 extra days to be delivered now so don't let it put you off)

Many thanks OP! Ordered!!!

Blub, Out of stock!
