Kinderfeets took such a unique and innovative approach to the children’s bicycle. So what are Kinderfeets? These handmade, wooden balance bikes are pedal-free, and teaches the child natural balance as they push off of the ground using their own feet. It’s a fun and easy transition for any child learning to ride a bike, before they’re comfortable with pedals!
Each Kinderfeets push bike is hand made, with a sturdy wood, cushioned seat and handle bars, and biodegradable airless tires. The Classic bikes feature a chalkboard finish on the sides, while the new Retro line of bikes feature a natural finish with nostalgic designs!
The bike was incredibly easy to assemble. It came with all of the tools I needed to put it together, and even with my excited children swarming around my legs, the assembly time was only about 30 minutes. I was very impressed with how simple and easy to follow the directions were.
As a young child learns to use their Kinderfeets bike, they begin to rely on their own balance to keep it steady. Eventually they’re able to push off the ground with enough strength to cruise along and place their feet on the side pegs. This innovative approach reduces the anxiety of learning to ride a bike and removes the intimidation of using pedals before the child is ready.
My daughter is 2 years old, so she’s on the beginning end of the age frame for this balance bike, which is for children 2-6 year’s old. She’s never written a tricycle, only 4-wheeled push toys. But even with her limited experience with such toys, she was easily able to understand the purpose of this balance bike!
There was a natural comfort to pushing herself around using her feet. Even though she’s not ready to place them on the pegs, she’s gaining confidence in how long she keeps her feet up before pushing off of the ground again. With the adjustable seat, she has plenty of time to grow into this balance bike.
Overall, Kinderfeets created such a fun and unique children’s balance bicycle. It’s a great option for young children learning to ride a bike, and the high quality design and materials will allow a child to grow with it year after year.
