Wishbone Bike Reviews

 

Wishbone Bikes are the industry standard in wooden riding toys. - Huffington Post, June 2012

On the premise that yound children get frustrated with tricycles...Wishbone ditched the pedals, and instead kids brake with their feet and focus on learning to steer and balance. Listed among TIME's 100 most influential people and products in green design. - TIME Magazine, May 2009

The great thing about Wishbone balance bikes is that they start out life as Wishbone three-wheeler tikes (no balance required), convert into small balance bikes with just two wheels for bigger toddlers before growing into a larger balance bicycle for your older pre-schooler. Very clever design... - dorkadore, June 2012

Has three build stages so even though it cost more to start with I get to use it for what I think will be about age 4 or 5? The trike is awesome and has helped my babe get confident at walking much quicker. It's stable so I don't freak out too much.

Th finish on this bike is really quite amazing which impressed me when I first opened the box. I have an 18 month old and wanted to get him mobile but he wasn't ready for a full bike. This felt like the perfect compromise being a tricycle and balance bike for later (I think he should be OK by two). He is a little wobbly still evn though its a three wheeler with no seat but it so much fun watching him get better on it. more expensive than other bikes we looked at but worth it. Kind of the Britax of balance bikes.

Before we even set this bike up it was so awesome. The design alone had us excited. So much detail in the design of the box which after opening clearly follows through to the design of the bike. Love it!! We looked at different bike and the metal frame ones but the finish and design quality of this is so impressive and well thought it out we were like little kids ourselves. Beautifully built and so much more elegant and stylish than other bikes - would highly recommend as the balance bike with the real stylish difference. Worth the extra money.

The wishbone bike was the perfect choice for our 2 year old. First off, she was thrilled when we rolled it into the room on her birthday. Secondly she didn't seem quite ready for the two wheel mode so we easily switched it back to the trike mode. After a few months she was up to and into the challenge.
For myself as a designer this bike was a dream from the little details in the packaging to the beautiful natural make of the bike itself. Worth the money and balancebikes.ca was simple and quick would. We couldn't be happier.

I bought two Wishbone bikes for two granddaughters who were both turning 1 year old this month. Neither is walking yet, but both took to the bikes immediately, with absolute delight! The one in Vancouver is riding up and down the sidewalk with a grin on her face a mile wide. Even though her toes barely touch the pavement, she steers, stops, and moves forward with no problem at all. The little one in Toronto hasn't been outside on hers yet, but the wheels make it safe (and not too noisy) in the house, and when she's not riding it, she's pushing it around as a walker.
I'd buy this bike again in a heartbeat!

We got the apple a day wishbone bike for our 16 month old. We love it's clean design and versatility. Right now it's being used as a trike, and the first time our daughter was on it, she took to it like a fish to water. The look on her face was priceless. I look forward to warmer spring days to use it! It's great that this bike can grow with her. Shipping was quick and customer service was good. It came in a single box and was very easy to assemble. Totally love it and we get so many compliments on it!

My son loves his new Wishbone balance bike. He has been asking for a bike for several weeks but at under 2 years old we were unable to find one that he was big enough to ride. The Wishbone is a perfect fit and the 3 wheels let him have lots of fun without worrying about falling. We can't get him off of it!

We have a very active 18 mo. old who loves to ride around a little Fisher Price bike around the house. We bought him the bike this summer and he's very curious about it, it's the right height and very sturdy. We did however make the rule that he must wear a helmet in order to sit on the bike and a result we are struggling to convince him to wear the helmet and ride it. In our experience 18 mo. is young for us and we are hoping that next summer when he is 2 1/2 he has a greater interest in wearing his helmet and riding it. Such a great bike though! We see kids (a little older than ours) riding around the neighbourhood with it.

We love the bike! My one year old knew exactly how to get on and ride as soon as she saw it. She has so much fun. Its easy on most terrain and I love that it will grow with her. Even my 5 year old niece got on for a ride!

We love the wishbone bike! it is one of my daughters favorite activities – she is currently using 3 wheels and really zips around (she is 22 months). she got the hang of it within minutes and I know we will get tons of use out of this bike over the next few years. I researched a lot of different options and I the end I am so glad that I spent that little bit more to get this one – I think it will be used for longer and is great quality. I highly recommend.

Thanks!

Great bike, easy to assemble. Only problem was inserting the included rubber rings into the handlebars. They did not fit properly and tore a little when assembled. Otherwise really great bike!

I ordered this bike for my 22 months old boy and he LOVES IT. it's a very stable bike, he is little but very active boy, so I want to make sure his feet touch the ground and it certainly does. He is able to go fast and he can stop without any problem.

After observing a friends child ride his balance bike, I had to purchase one for my grandson. I have been looking for one for a while and I think this one is the best on the market

Love it!! She's too small right now. But it was super easy and quick to assemble. And the cardboard box was equally as fun for her to play with lol!

Overall really happy with my nephews new 3in1 balance bike. Solid construction, put it together in minutes. Ben loved it! Bought it for his first birthday and he wanted on it immediately. He isn't quite walking yet and was still able to pull himself on and off the bike and push himself along with his tippy toes. I think it will be an excellent toy for him for a few years now. Love it.

The delivery was prompt! Only a matter of days after placing the order the bike was at our doorstep. Our grandson hasn't received his bike as of yet but he has experience on his cousin's bike and we know how much that he loves that one. We are excited to present him with this wonderful bike upon his second birthday!

Our little guy is 1 year old, he's not walking yet, but with the bike in trike mode, he quickly was running around and loving his bike. Huge smiles as he was so proud of himself.

The assembly was easy, and the quality of the bike is great. It's expensive which can be hard to justify, but we plan on having the bike for a number of years so it will be worth it.

Highly recommend the bike so far. Wish they'd make a wooden wall mount for those of us who live in townhomes and apartments.
