The next type of bike is the trike that is more bike like, these are ideal for older children who are not yet ready for a bike. They usually still have three wheels but are thinner and not as brightly coloured, they are often branded with popular children’s brands such as Barbie, Disney, Bratz, Scooby Doo and others. They also usually have adjustable handle bars and seats so that as the child grows you can alter the bike accordingly until the child is ready for a proper bike.

Then there is the proper children’s bike, this has two wheels just like normal bikes but often come with stabilisers so if the child needs them, stabilisers are a set of small wheels that go at the back of the bike which stop the bike from toppling over when ridden. These are still bikes intended for young children though and are different to the older kids bikes that you can buy, these are still very much branded for young children with Bratz, Disney, Barbie and Scooby Doo being very popular. You can also buy bikes for older children that are just like adult bikes but smaller, these include mountain bikes and BMX bikes.

When buying a bike for a child safety is a very important consideration, it is advised that you buy a good quality safety helmet as these can prevent serious injury should the child fall from the bike while riding. You can also get other safety products such as knee, elbow and wrist pads, these are a good idea but not as important as the safety helmets or when using other products such as skateboards where falling is much more likely. There are also many brands that make these kids bikes which include Raleigh and Tonka, Raleigh are by far the most popular.

So when buying a bike for a child it generally comes down to the age and cycling ability of the child, there are trikes for the very young children and there are also bikes of various sizes and cycling levels. There are also lots of brands that make bikes and trikes and they include Bratz, Tonka, Little Tikes, Disney, Raleigh, Barbie and Scooby Doo. If you are looking for a cheap bike then have a good shop around as many of the shops have cheap special offers and deals so finding a cheap child’s bike or trike can be quite easy.
