    Thank You for the great bike we received, I’m … The bike is wonderful! Thank you again for the idea and effort that you brought to deliver this! This is exactly (and more) what I could wish for my son.
    Bike is really intuitive and for my 3yrs old son it was question of seconds to sit on it and drive. We started with pedal-less version and are heading to full version upgrade this summer, as improvements on keeping a balance are significantly visible.
    Pedals already waiting in the drawer and as I studied the bike construction, mounting them on bike is so easy, that we will do it with my son together as a nice learning lesson.
    One more point to mention – I was very positively surprised by the really high quality of materials used on bike. Solid metal, quality breaks, painting, well covered ends of the handlebar… I feel this bike is incomparably better then the other so called “bikes for children” of the same price level on market. If you find any.
    Thank you again, LittleBigBike team!

    This bike is simply an engineering feat!!! Our son is not even two years old yet, and he has been getting used to sitting on it and getting us to push him around. Surely enough, he is at a stage when he is able to hold his own weight and start to balance and push himself around! The design, colour and practicality of this bike is fantastic, as our son will have this bike for years, due to the crank and chain set that we bought for it. Overall, we are very pleased parents and have a happy and active son :) Well done Simon!

    This bike is amazing!! A Christmas present for our Son who had just turned 3 and he loves it. He has had no problems learning to ride it and can now balance for miles!! It’s easy for him to handle making turning and gliding a piece of cake. Made of high quality materials the bike is sturdy yet light enough for my son to pick up should he fall off it. It’s great to know that it will last him years and we can’t wait to try him on the pedals this summer. A truly fantastic product. Great customer service saw the bike arrive in Abu Dhabi in time for Christmas – perfect!!

    I was reluctant for my son to learn how to ride a bike with stabilisers, often when I am out I see older children riding with stabilisers and I did not want the same for my son. I heard all about the marvels of balance bikes so I thought I would give the LitteBigBike a try. The LittleBigBike would cover all bases, and save me the expense of buying two bikes.
    I bought the LittleBigbike for my then 3 year old as a Christmas present in 2014, and following the late Christmas Eve assemble the bike was ready to go in the morning.
    My son quickly got the hang of his new bike in the Little bike balance mode, and we often took it to a local skate park. For my sons 4th birthday in March 2015, I decided it was time for my son to start using the pedals. Initially I found that my son was not tall enough to use the big in the pedal mode, but by May 2015 he had grown a little so we tried using it again. My wife son and I went to Chiswick Park in London on May 16th 2015, for a practice run and within 20 minutes my son was pedalling away and cycling without support! I have seen an immediate effect with my son, as being able to ride a two wheel bike has further increased his confidence now that he can show off amongst his nursery school peers!
    The Little big bike is a great product, which has helped my son to achieve one of the major milestones in his life.

    As a competitive cyclist I pontificated endlessly about the correct bike to start our son with. The LittleBig has been superb – lightweight but solidly made. If there were any drawbacks at all, assembly was not completely straightforward. Also, our son is tall but founf the LittleBig a little too big at the outset – he needed a cheap plastic balance bike for a couple of months before transitioning to the LittleBIg – probably something we could have foreseen if we measured him and the bike correctly. Overall a great piece of kit – with excellent customer service.

    We bought this bike for my daughter when she was 2, she’s now nearly 5. We loved the fact that it grows with her but she’s quite small for her age and for the first 1-2 years she was too small for it, so much so we bought her a 2nd hand wooden balance bike for the interim. Now she’s got the pedals added and can ride it but only for a few metres at a time, preferring to push it instead. However, when she’s had a ride on a lighter bike, she’s had so much more confidence with it and has ridden much further. We’ve only just realised that it is 2kg heavier than most starter bikes, and we believe that is her difficulty with it. We’re now researching other pedal bikes for her, as we don’t think she’s ever going to have any confidence with this bike. It’s a nice idea but disappointing outcome.
