Best Black Friday Balance Bike deals for toddlers - 2019
Black Friday is a great time to get a cheap balance bike for your toddler - especially if you're wanting to get them one for their Christmas present. Lots of retailers will be having discounts on balance bikes. In this post we'll be taking a look at some great bargains available on Black Friday so you can find the perfect Balance Bike for that Christmas present! Why not book mark this page and come back closer to the day?
Black Friday this year is on Friday 29th November 2019, and discount usually starts a few days before, with the main bargains coming on line either at midnight on the Friday, or late on the Thursday afternoon. The sales will last until Cyber Monday (1st Decembers 2019) but remember once the balance bikes have been sold, that's it, so buy early to avoid disappointment!
What is a balance bike - and should I buy one for my toddler this Black Friday?
A balance bike is a tiny little two wheeled bike without pedals, which allows your toddler to scoot along. It really helps them learn to balance, and makes the transition to a pedal bike so much easier. They're usually cheaper and much lighter than a pedal bike, and a lot more fun for very young children. We highly recommend that this is the way all kids learn to ride, rather than traditional stablisers and a heavy, steel framed pedal bike.
