Joovy Bicycoo BMX Balance Beginners Bike

logo

This past December Santa’s elves made an early appearance and left a Joovy Bicycoo BMX balance bike for both Emma and Ethan. They had a blast with it and I am convinced that a balance bike should be the first step to learning to ride a bike… then a two wheeler. Learning to balance and pedal at the same time is overwhelming and quite frankly, difficult.

Balance bikes, quite simply put, introduce the idea of balance before anything else.  The concept is easy: children master balance first, build confidence and then they make the transition to the ‘big kid bike’ because all they need to learn is to pedal!

Joovy has decided to celebrate spring and balance bikes with a GIVEAWAY!

ONE lucky reader will win a Joovy Bicycoo Balance Bike!
