Peasytoys Natural Wood Ride-on Bike Half Price £22.49 - great for learning to ride @ Amazon

Found 23rd Nov 2009Made hot 23rd Nov 2009
My friend had one of these and it was great. It is a bike without pedals - so the younster can learn balance and scoot along on it like a ride on (but for an older child obviously) and then moving to riding a bike is much easier.

* Adjustable set for when the child grows
* Long lasting chunky wood
* 85% preassembled
* Rubber wheels for extra grip
* Hand carved wooden seat

Manufacturer's Description
The Natural wood Ride-on bike helps train the coordination and balance of children through play. Once they've mastered the ride-on-bike, children are ready to move on to their first bicycle. It gives them the first steps towards coordination and balance. The bike has been 85% preassembled and requires very little further assembly. The seat is in the lowest position for the beginner but the height of the seat can be raised for when the child grows. The bike is constructed for children aged 3-6 years and your child should have many hours of fun with the bike.

Box Contains
# 1 x Wooden Natural Wood Ride-on Bike
# Instruction manual containing safety guide and direction for using the bike

Looks awful :oops:



they are great - really good if you have older kids on bikes - my friends little one is 4 and whizzes everywhere on his:thumbsup:

these are really useful - help young'ns to get the feel of a bike without the complications

stick a bairn on a crap bike and it may put them off for life, at least this way it helps them in from a younger age

These are normally much more expensive - the one in the deal does look quite plain but still a good price. H&R

Ive already stock piled one for my little one, but the advantage of these is that the child never needs to use stabalisers, as they learn to free wheel on these and then progress to a bike with pedals.

Our little one is 21 months and we are getting one for her second birthday.....it's a different one but she easily touched the ground and couldn't get enough of it in the shop. We are looking at a lot more than this for the one that we chose.

PeasyToys - LOL , had to look twice when I read that :roll:

It just looks really cheap and nasty.... sorry but i would be embarrased

Bikes like these are good for teaching kids to balance.

You can get the same effect by taking a normal kid's bike, removing the stabilisers, chain, chain ring, cranks and pedals. A lot of little bikes get thrown away if anything breaks on them, and its nice to have a bike that doesn't matter if it is left out in the rain.

You should be for posting that.

Yeah, but you wouldn't be riding it seeing as it is for 2 year olds........

And I don't imagine a 2 year old would be too bothered about image at that age!

It's all about learning to balance and for that, these are perfect and very good value (which after all is what these forums are about).

This is a great deal.

[COLOR="Red"]HOT [/COLOR]deal - ignore the vain bint above :thumbsup:

Great price - we payed slightly more for a German one on ebay (new) earlier this summer and our 2.5 years old is getting used to it. We went the normal stabiliser route with our older one and she doesn't want to take them off - be interesting to see how little one progresses to a real bike.

Downside of them is the turning circle is massive as the handlebars don't turn very much. They do look pretty retro cool in the flesh though (although the one listed is very plain)

Good price - try it if you have a little one

Yeah it is a hot deal if you like the look of it. And yes it wouldnt be me riding this but i would no way buy this for my child.... It just looks really cheap. Kind of something that your grandad would build for you because you cant afford a bike.

I voted Hot as i think its its a great deal for people who like the look but personally i think it looks vile..

These are great!! My son is nearly 3 and has been wizzing around for a good 9 months now. He loves his! This bike does look a bit like a cheap copy though.. Wonder if it's sturdy enough to last..

These are fantastic and actually they are sold by all the 'posh' shops so anyone saying they would be embarrassed is either a chav and after something by Fila or Kappa or just doesn't have style!!

Actually one of the upper class Mum's has one of these for their little boy and he really enjoys his one in the playground

Ordered one for my daughters christmas present

Its not about being a chav or upper class.. everyone prefers different styles. I could see nurserys and schools buying these for the playground which is fab but personally i dont like the look of this for my kids.. thats all.

Hot deal, thanks..

I am confused!

I am wanting to get one for my daughters christmas (2 in Jan). Amazon says 18 months + and the picure on the box says 3 +

will this be too big for my daughter?

These are great if you have young ones. My boy went from one of these straight to a pedal bike when he just turned 4 with no need for stabilisers.

Great deal, ordered one for daughter number 2 having regretted not getting one for the older daughter.

ordered thanks

i think as the seat can be lowered very low (from the pic) you'll be fine.

i've ordered one for our eldest as the balance bike her grandparents bought is still too big for her - this should hopefully tide her over :thumbsup:

Yep I'm inclined to agree that the seat looks particularly low in the pics (about level with top of rear wheel), hence buying for a 2nd birthday present... If you zoom in on the box picture, there is ref to 'not suitable for under 3 years due to small parts' so maybe that is the reason for the 3+ tag. The makers are obviously covering themselves just in case you had wondered about entrusting assembly to the little one... ;-)

I love that all encompassing disclaimer. If your child can swallow a big wooden bike then it's the last of your worries :w00t:

I think it's a great deal and I think I'll get one for my 2 year old (in Feb)'s birthday.

Can any one got it confirm if the tyres are real rubber tyres instead of plastic ones, which will not be comfortable at all? Thanks.

Just found a different bike like this at toys r us for 24.99

got mine today very nice and very pleased

Wow! Brilliant. Was going to get one for DD's 3rd birthday in the summer, but at this price I've ordered one for christmas. This is really cheap for a balance bike. Aestheticaly, I think it looks brilliant, much preferable to a pink cheap plastic looking thing addorned in t.v characters. Can't wait for my daughter to try this out.

Are the tyres are real rubber one or plastic ones, which will not be comfortable at all? Thanks.

The OP states in the description they are rubber tyres

As for age - our 2 year old was slightly too small for his similar one but the seat heights overall do vary from model to model and obviously deopends how long your childs legs are

They ned to be able to plant their feet down flat to use properly especially at such a young age where balance is still not perfect
