The fantastically cool Wishbone is not just any balance bike - it's a transformer! It converts from three-wheeled trike to a lightweight, stable balance bike then to a larger "running bike", perfect from toddler through to pre-school!
"I WISH… With hindsight, my garage would not be filled with outgrown ride–on toys and trikes; there would simply be a single wooden Wishbone running bike from New Zealand, and my four–year–old would probably still be riding it today." - Daisy Bridgewater, The Daily Telegraph
The Wishbone is a multi-award-winning (so it's not just us who loves it!) and beautifully styled unique balance bike that evolves with your little one through three stages of childhood. Designed and made in New Zealand to encourage your child to learn to steer and balance and made from sustainable ash and birch, the Wishbone is the ultimate bike that will be loved by children and their parents... (Parents - remember to let your kids have a go too!)
'What's different about the Wishbone?' we hear you ask. Unlike many other balance bikes, the wishbone is a trike, a balance bike and a 'running' bike, so you only need to ever buy one bike to see your little one through from when they have taken their first steps to when they are walking to school!
Stage 1 - The Trike
When your little one is first walking, the Wishbone is a trike, with the three wheels giving superb stability, yet it's still lightweight enough to manoeuvre easily.
Stage 2 - The Balance Bike
At around the age of two or three, you can convert the trike into a two-wheeled balance bike, so your little one can sit on it and practice balancing and steering. They might be a little wobbly to start, so this stage is designed for little feet to still be close to the ground.
Stage 3 - The Running Bike
This is where your little one finds freedom! At around 4 or 5, flip the frame to give the bike more height. Your child can confidently sit on the bike and "run", lifting their feet up when they want to free-wheel, but still be able to brake easily with their feet. The Wishbone is the largest "running" bike currently on the market.
