12 Days Of Giveaways Day 9: The Award-Winning YBike

Bikes are a tricky purchase – especially when it comes to toddlers! You have to worry about training wheels, the size of the bike and whether or not they are even ready to ride!  What many people don’t know is that balance bikes are your best bet during the early years. Why? Well, while promoting active play, balance bikes also help toddlers develop balance and coordination. Because balance bikes don’t have pedals, children don’t have to “learn” to ride them. They simply sit and run along with their feet – pure fun!

The award-winning YBike ($79.99) is very different from other balance bikes. Mady from high quality, lightweight (yet durable) injection molded plastic, this bike is designed with an extended front fork angle that allows safe turning and offers a high ground clearance to ensure safety regardless of the terrain. The large wheels are perfect for safe riding on uneven ground and the two closely aligned rear wheels help to keep your child balanced, but still allow them to lean their body side to side while turning around corners.

With the cold weather upon many of us, biking usually takes a back seat until the Spring. Luckily your child won’t have to miss out on the fun with the YBike as it can be used indoors and outdoors. If you are traveling to your family’s house for the holidays, you’ll be happy to know that assembly takes about 5 minutes and the entire unit is lightweight and super easy to transport.

Winning the Platinum Seal 2010 Award from Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, Creative Child Magazine Top Toy of the Year Award and the 2010 Parents Choice Award, the YBike is definitely a hot ticket item this season!
