We have selected the most beautiful draisiennes, bikes and tricycles adapted to the ages of your children. And don't forget the matching helmets for added safety!
The draisienne is ideal for developing a child's sense of balance and preparing them to use a bicycle later on. Psychomotricians recommend it.
Our selection is fashionable, rock, retro but above all of quality. Let's go! Let's go!
After the classic carrier offered to children, the draisienne or the child's bike are perfect as a birthday or Christmas gift but also as a first baby gift to please the parents but especially the child when he will be older.
But how to choose and what are the differences between the draisienne and the bike?
To quickly distinguish between them, unlike a bicycle, a draisienne does not have pedals. A draisienne is perfect as a first birthday present and can be used between 3 and 5 years old with its adjustable saddle.
The Banwood bikes in our selection can be used from the age of 4 to around 7 years old with their 16 inch wheels. They are equipped with small wheels that can be removed when your child is more confident and comfortable in learning how to balance.
There are different types of pushchair or pedal bikes to suit the different needs and abilities of your child.
Progressive bikes or draisiennes.
Choose a progressive seatbelt or a progressive bike if you want them to be with your child for many years. Therefore, if you are giving a child's bike as a birthday present for your young child, opt for its various adjustable functions that will keep your child's bike or child's bike for longer. Choosing an adjustable saddle for the baby bike allows you to adjust the saddle according to the evolution of the child's growth. Having adjustable handlebars will also allow your child to adopt a good posture once installed on his draisienne or his child bike. The adjustable saddle height allows you to keep the bike longer but also to adapt to other children to whom your kid could lend his draisienne bike.
The electric draisienne.
The electric scooter is halfway between a scooter and a bicycle.
Although it is not the product that will teach your child to ride a bike because of its electric function, it is nonetheless ideal for your child to develop good balance, which is the primary function of the bike. The electric bike is a good way to teach your child balance before buying a pedal bike that will teach them how to move forward and move by themselves.
The purchase of equipment to use a bike or a draisienne is essential.
A child's helmet is an essential part of teaching your child to ride a bike. To do this, choose a helmet adapted to the size of your child. Measure your child's head size beforehand to find the ideal helmet. If the helmet is too big, it is dangerous for your child as it does not fully protect him or her in case of a fall.
Decide beforehand whether you want a child's bike with brakes or not. The presence of brakes is suitable for a child who is already quite independent in terms of balance.
The shock absorber option provides more comfort for your child.
When buying your toy, make sure both options are available.
When buying your child's first draisienne, he or she should be at least 80 cm tall. Once you have reached this height, you can be sure of optimum comfort.
For the little ones who want to grow up faster and join the grown-ups on the bike, you can opt for a 4-wheel model or a tricycle. Safe and practical, your 1 or 2 year old baby will feel like a grown-up but with a toy that fits.
When your baby reaches the age of 2, opt for a draisienne bike with a seat height of about 30 cm.
One year later, we know how fast children grow. A seat height between 85 and 100 cm is ideal. And so on...
Once again, the seat height should be adapted to the size and growth of your child. That's why the evolving draisiennes or evolving bicycles with an adjustable seat are perfect for growing at the same pace as your little one.
The weight of your draisienne or bike is an important factor in the choice. If the weight is too light for your child, it may be difficult for your child to find his or her balance. On the other hand, a draisienne bike that is too heavy will be difficult for your child to handle.
Choose the weight that you think is best suited to your child's build. As a general rule, the draisienne bikes are between 2.5 and 5 kg. If your child is already used to the wheelchair, choose a wheelchair that weighs around 2.5 kg, so that he or she has more freedom to handle and drive it. The same goes for the bike, the ideal being a 7 or 8 kg bike.
Sometimes there are no brakes, so you should choose a pushchair according to your child's size. Your child must be able to hold on to the ground with his or her feet. They will be used to propel themselves on the bike and thus to achieve the right balance and posture. To do this, when your child is sitting on the bike, he or she should have both feet firmly planted on the ground with the knees slightly bent.
The size of a bike is often given by the size of its wheels (16 inch wheels, about 40 cm).
