We’re big advocates of balance bikes – they teach your child the fundamentals of coordination and balance, making the transition to a pedal bike a breeze. But let’s be real, they are expensive, and you’ll soon need to purchase that first bike as well. Enter the LittleBig: a convertible 3-in-1 bike that can grow with your child. The LittleBig starts as a pedal-less balance bike for kids age 2+, but can transform into a bigger balance bike with a higher seat and longer […]
Imagine a bike that could grow with your child. Rather than purchasing an expensive balance bike only to buy an expensive pedal bike a few years (or a few months) later, this one bike could do it all. Your child could go from scooting to pedaling all on their single trusty steed.
This is what Simon, a cyclist and engineer from Ireland, imagined and he brought the bike to life. His brainchild, the LittleBig, is a 3-in-1 bicycle that converts from a little balance […]

The gorgeous, aluminum LittleBig 3-in-1 is a hybrid balance pedal bike like the Strider 14x. It is a step up in quality, weighs less (11.2 pound without pedals, 14.5 with), and has excellent front and rear hand brakes and an ingenious system that allows you to flip the midpoint of the frame.
The bikes are designed & hand assembled in Ireland and they come with a sleek design and a great price attached if you consider the approximate 5 years investment.
Therefore, that’s my number one choice for a Christmas present if you haven’t covered the bike chapter yet. It’s one way to make the tiny humans’ confidence grow while they become more independent and eventually, in my case, better riders than their own dad…
