Kidvelo have scooped Gold for the “Best Balance Bike” in the Made for Mums 2022 Toy Awards.

We were seriously impressed by the Kidvelo Rookie 12 when we reviewed it earlier in the year – it’s really lightweight and looks great, as well as being very easy for a little one to ride.

Best First Bike Award - Made for Mums Toy Awards 2022

In the “Best First Bike” category in the Made for Mums Toy Awards 2022 the winner was the Woom2.

Our 4 year old reviewer absolutely loved the Woom2 when we reviewed it several years ago.

We were impressed with the colour co-ordinated brake lever which makes it easier for your child to remember which is the front and read brake.
