Benefits of wooden balance bikes for your toddler,

In addition to being fun, a balance bike helps with gross-motor skill development, builds confidence, and provides an easy transition to a pedal bike. Here are some of the top reasons you should get a balance bike for your toddler if they don’t have one already.

Gross-motor skill development

According to Kid Sense Child Development, learning balance and coordination is important for injury prevention, self-regulation, and developing a foundation for future development of fine motor skills. Balance bikes also help develop core muscle strength and endurance.

Easy transition to a pedal bike

Toddlers who start on a balance bike early (at 18 months – 24 months) are often riding a pedal bike without training wheels by 3 years old. The balance bike familiarizes kids with the concepts of balance and motion and provides a safe foundation for learning to ride a pedal bike.

Exercise

Bike burns off some of that never-ending energy that toddlers have.

Self-confidence

Every time he rides off a “ledge” or a “jump” or manages to coast ten feet without stopping, he just beams with pride.

Exposure to the outdoors

Most kids today don’t get enough time in nature causing a wide range of behavioral and emotional problems. If you get a well-built balance bike it is capable of not just riding around the driveway, it can be ridden on the grass at the park or even on your favorite hiking trail.

Cost effective

A quality wooden balance bike, on the other hand, can be used by your child for several years and then still be in good enough shape to hand-down to a younger sibling.
