Mommy can we go outside? Mommy can we ride bikes? I hear this a lot as a mom, but never more so then the day I brought home the Joovy Bicycoo for my three year old. Check out our balance bike review below!
Today’s post is sponsored by Joovy. All opinions are my own.
L was so excited to give his new balance bike a try that he began taking laps inside the house. Since it was a brand new bike, I was okay with him learning indoors first. Soon he was ready to hit the road! Mommy and L were so excited we forgot safety first, but wearing a helmet is always a must.
Balance Bike Review
Did you know that more modern parents are moving away from the “old” way of training wheels and opting for a balance bike instead? Here’s why:
- Kids do better focusing on one thing at a time. Therefore balance bikes allow kids to zone in on mastering their balance before riding.
- When a child rides with training wheels they tend to lean into the turn, instead of learning to balance. This formed habit makes it harder for kids to learn to ride independently.
- The sooner the better applies to balance bikes. Children ages three and up can begin to learn how to balance on a balance bike. For more information on the benefits of balance bikes, head to joovy.com.
The Joovy Bicycoo features a hand brake just like traditional bikes, a soft cushioned seat, and 12″ pneumatic tires for suspension. Children ages three and up, and under 55 lbs in weight can ride the Joovy Bicycoo. It even won design awards at Europe’s largest trade show. The frame is made of aluminum so it’s strong, yet lightweight.
The Joovy Bicycoo balance bike is available in three color choices: red, black, or white. Head to Joovy’s website for additional details about this fun new way to ride. Looking for more Joovy reviews? Check out the Joovy Scooter and Groove stroller reviews, TheBabaSling, and Joovy Tricycoo.
