Often on bikes when you come to a tricky corner, you have to shuffle the wheels sideways in order to negotiate the bend. This slows down an active child on the move (and can be a bit damaging to floor surfaces too).

None of that is a worry with this new bike as its wheels turn all ways around, allowing children aged one to three to scoot in any direction they like.

The cute ride-on looks like an insect too,and that’s definitely a bonus.

It folds down for carrying about and is easy to set up again, that’s no screwdrivers required – Just flip back into place and you;re off.

A new Ride-on range that looks like the real thing, suitable for boys and girls to zoom around on. There’s a Red Scooter, Lemon Scooter and Motorbike, each one brightly painted and give them all a retro feel.

Pneumatic air filled tyres and easy-grip handlebars make for a very comfy, and safe, ride.

By adjusting the height of the seat, the ride-ons can adjust to children of different heights, and there’s loads of detail on each ones paintwork that make them look great.

A balance bike for kids between 18 months and three years, the BitBike comes in a range of bright colours (orange, pink, blue and green) and is specially designed for stability, with extra wide wheels to

enhance balance, helping kids to gain confidence as they develop their riding skills. It reminds us of something perhaps Trons little brother or sister might have!

The built-in handlebars are ideally placed to make kids sit at the right position and they make for handy storage hooks.

Complete with a carry bag for easy portability.
