Perfect for Christmas, birthdays, or just as a lovely gift to spoil them, kids' bikes are always a popular present. The types of bikes range massively depending on price point and style, but you can also look at them by your child's ability and age, and by brand. To make your budget stretch further, check out new and used items. Often used items can give you access to top brands for less, so you can find your child's dream bike within your price range.
Brands such as Apollo, Disney, Falcon, and Raleigh all have bikes made especially with boys in mind. To make sure you're earning serious cool points with your little one, bear in mind what they may like, which colours they love best and how they want to use their bike. To give you some inspiration, products include Disney Mickey Mouse themed kids' bikes, mountain bikes for junior riders with smaller frames, and trendy styles with oversized wheels to give them more stability.
The range of girls' bikes are just as varied as the boys. Cute and fun to ride, there's a mix of brands and models to suit any age. Typical examples span from balance bikes, for ambitious riders looking to build their confidence, to freestyle BMX types. You can also find prettier bikes with baskets, decorative touches or branding from their favourite film character.
Perhaps a girl or a boy's style bike isn't right for your child. Going for a cool unisex model can make it feel more adaptable for any personality, or it can give you a bit of longevity if you're planning on using the bike for another child at a later date. There are mini stunt bikes, unisex mountain bicycles, and children's BMX types for adventurous kids.
