Our iconic Sherwood bike – now in miniature. Designed for tots aged 18 months and up, this mini balance bike is the perfect way to introduce your kids to the joys of cycling. By building up their confidence and developing their motor skills, these pedal-free models help kids master the basics of biking, making it easier for them (and for you!) when they progress to the real thing.
Just like its grown-up counterpart, the Sherwood Mini comes kitted out with a beautiful wicker basket – perfect for storing their favourite toys in. A tan saddle and matching grips complement the classic cream tyres, creating a dreamy vintage style that you’ll love as much as they do. The frame is painted in a pearlescent pink finish with a protective lacquer coating, ready to withstand the bumps and scrapes generally inflicted on a well-loved kids’ bike. And with a coordinating helmet available, staying safe on their bike will feel like part of the fun.
Balance bikes have fast overtaken stabilisers as the go-to way to teach kids how to ride a bike. Unlike traditional children’s bikes, these models don’t have any pedals, brakes or complicated gears to contend with. Instead, the design encourages kids to lift their little legs when they want to move forward – just as they would on a normal bike. By skipping the training wheels, these bikes help toddlers hone their balance and coordination. With all these skills ready in their back pockets, balance bikes make the real thing seem much less intimidating.
* The illustration above is an example. We reserve the right, as long as the type, suitability and purpose of the bike are not reduced, to replace individual parts with components of the same or higher quality, so that the bike is delivered differently. The use of other components is currently mainly caused by delivery problems due to the Corona pandemic.
