Balance bikes are a superb option for toddlers and children not yet able to ride a pedal bike without stabilisers. For us, a balance bike was the natural upgrade for our son when he was just under 2 years old and had outgrown his Scuttlebug.

Prices of balance bikes for toddlers range from a few quid to hundreds of pounds. But whatever you’ve budgeted for a balance bike, you’ll want to know you’re getting a good deal. Here are our favourite deals from Amazon:

Strider 12 Sport – £88

Strider is perhaps the best known name in balance bikes and the Strider 12 Sport is suitable for toddlers from 18 months to around 5 years of age. It’s available in a range of colours including green, red, blue orange and pink.

A few things you should know:

Lightweight Banana Bike LT – Reduced from £49.99 to £36.99

The Banana Bike is suitable for children aged 2 – 4.  It’s available in 3 colours – green, pink and blue. Banana Bike arguably does not have the size of brand that Strider does, but the bikes review well.

What you need to know:


Flip Balance Bike – £32.95

The Flip Balance bike is a reasonably priced product. Unlike many of the competing balance bikes on the market, this one is foldable. It has much smaller wheels than its competitors and is a different sort of style.

The Chicco Bullet is one of the lower cost balance bikes in our write up. The RRP is £34.99 but, at the time of writing, this is available on Amazon for £27.99.

The Boring Bit

All information is accurate at the time of writing, but please do check the product descriptions closely. Also, while Amazon is often the cheapest for balance bikes, there are some models not available for Amazon and some (like the Yvelo Junior) that are sometimes cheaper elsewhere. Check a range of shops and do your price comparison.
