In the not too distant past years, bicycles for youngsters really have improved - as proven by the top best selling kids bikes 2010. These are definitely well considered, durable and in addition consist of styles making it possible for even the littlest of children to master riding a bicycle.
For this year, the following are the 3 most popular bicycles for kids:
Strider Balance Bike – Here is the first of a unique lineup of bicycles for kids 2010 – the balance bike. This is known to truly help kids when they are learning the best way to ride by giving them what they need first – a sense of balance. This (in my opinion) is a brilliant idea simply because it allows kids to get used to the feel of a bicycle and how to balance on it prior to adding other “complexities” such as pedaling, keeping legs away from chains, etc. Kids literally can run with this bike, then get used to riding on it with feet up – at which point they are ready to tackle the level of actually riding a bicycle. The Strider version of the balance bike is apparently appropriate for toddlers as young as 18 months old!
Kazam Balance Kids Bike – Like the Strider PREBike, this bike is designed to get kids used to the sense and balance of riding a bike before moving on to a much more difficult level. There are a few key differences with the Kazam, the most obvious of which is the look and overall design. Another difference is that it carries a bit of a lower price than the Strider – but perhaps the most important thing to know is that it is built for a bit of an older age range, being appropriate (per the manufacturer) for kids about 3 to 6 years of age.
Jasmine Girls Bike from Schwinn – The third most popular from the kids bikes in 2010 is made specifically for the young ladies out there – especially for girls who love the character “Jasmine” of the Disney Princess lineup. Even though this bicycle is quite feminine looking (with pink and other light pastel colors as well as pretty designs) – it is known to be quite durable and can take lots of use. This bicycle is a 16 inch design, appropriate for girls from around 4 to 6 years old.
Needless to say there are many more of the top best selling kids bikes than the ones listed above – and they are quite a lineup for children with the younger age range but also consist of BMX style and freestyle bicycles for kids who are in an older age group.
