Review: We received the Neon Toddlebike to review just before Christmas, and the bright colours are perfect for fun loving Lydia. She is coming up to her 2nd birthday at the end of this month, and she absolutely adores this Toddlebike.
It has been the perfect step between ride on toys in the house and a bigger balance bike when she’s a little older. Georgie, aged 3 at the moment, has been enjoying it as well and they have been taking turns playing on it at the park.
The Toddlebike is suitable for indoor and outdoor use which is good news as we’ve been having some rotten weather lately! I think this is great because it means you aren’t limited to fair weather play – the plastic body is easily wiped clean to bring it indoors for some hallway racing.
Lydia is of an average height and the Toddlebike is perfect for her at the moment, she can comfortable reach the ground with her feet and push herself along. Georgie looks comically tall on it but she is right at the top of the age limit, and has no problems whatsoever pushing herself along on it.
The Toddlebike is really stable for the girls to play on and I have no worries about serious accidents while they are playing with this. It is great fun on the little inclines at the park with both girls enjoying riding it down, or letting it roll down on it’s own while they chase after it. It feels really solid and unbreakable, the plastic isn’t at all flimsy and the wheels are showing no sign of falling off or anything.
This toddler bike has brilliant reviews on Amazon and it’s not hard to see why. I can’t believe how cheap it is! I would definitely recommend this to any parent and would say it is an ideal gift for a toddler around 18 months old, and it will last them a few years.
