Sharing is caring!

It is a huge article covering all possible types of transports for kids. If we missed one creative innovation, please, drop us a comment. Enjoy the read!

Nowadays it is extremely overwhelming to pick the best toddler bike. There are tons of bikes for babies on the market: push and riding toys for 1-year olds, push trike, balance bike with brakes, tricycle, bicycle for toddler, mountain bike, scooter, and other types of transport for toddlers and kids.

So, what are the best ride on toys for toddlers? Shall you choose a balance bike over a push trike? How do balance bikes work? What types of transport are there and what age are they designed for? We will answer all of these questions today and give you a better understanding of what transport type is better for your child.

Let’s roll!

Why does my child need a bike?

Ride on toys, push toys for one-year-olds, balance bikes, bicycles for toddlers – any sort of bike helps your child to exercise, build confidence and strength. As the result, your child gets stronger, more active, and starts to walk much earlier.

Bikes help your child to develop motor skills, balance, and coordination. Besides, any type of transport makes your child feel older, proud and challenged. Plus, it is just too much fun to ride a bike.

What bike should I choose?

Well, if you want your child to develop fine motor skills, balance, coordination, strength, stamina, speed, then you should go for a real bike segment, such as a balance bike, bicycle, scooter, or skateboard. If you aim for a transport that would save your time and will be useful for both, a parent and a child, 1-year old ride on toys and push trikes are the right choice.

“Toy” in the name speaks for itself. First of all, it is hard to get a professional high-end baby riding toy simply because of the age. The child at the age of one barely can walk, and only can learn this much, such as pushing, walking, strolling (not even steering!). Secondly, young toddlers cannot commit to long distances just yet, so your options are to take a stroller or a push trike to go to a park. In this case, you let your baby try something new, exercise, build that much-needed strength; but also, you have a backup plan in case your precious child refuses to ride his brand-new vehicle, and you end up carrying both things and a backpack full of baby essentials on your back.

There is also a huge variety of the best ride on toys for toddlers which are a preparation for a balance bike, whereas the latter teaches your child how to ride his first two-wheel bicycle.

Finally, there are multiple unique solutions, such as power wheels, the best ride on cars for toddlers, pogo sticks, and shark spinners. But these may go as an extra fun toy rather than the best toddler bike.

How to choose the best toddler bike?

Every type of transport has its own criteria by which you should choose your child’s first vehicle. Please read our guides for each type of bike for more details.

Generally speaking, you should pay attention to the following:

  • Wheels – material, size, number
  • The material the bike or toy is made of
  • Comfort – the way your child feels riding the toy or a bike
  • Size – it should be suitable for your child’s age
  • Your child’s temper and character – every child is individual, some may be very active and love pushing and running around; some would rather enjoy riding their bikes occasionally at a slow pace
  • Weight – the fewer bike weights the better it is, the more your child would want to ride it
  • Adjustability – consider options with adjustable seats, removable handles, flipping out pedals, etc.
  • Safety – check what safety measures it provides
  • Years of use – the more your child uses it, the better investment it is for you
  • Warranty
  • Additional accessories, such as rear storage, canopy, cup holder, snack tray, parent console, brakes, ring bells, etc.
  • Design
  • Your budget

Types of Baby Bikes: What are they?

Push Trikes

Age: 10 months – 5 years

Push tricycles and riding toys for 1-year olds are important for the following reasons:

  • They help a young child to get a feel of his very first own transport.
  • They help develop balance, coordination, strength, and motor skills.
  • They teach pushing and pedaling.
  • They are absolutely safe.
  • They are incredibly fun (my child was extremely excited and proud to get to the park by tricycle).
  • They can be pushed when little legs get tired.

Besrey Baby Tricycle 8-in-1 Kid Push Trike

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 12 months – 6 years
  • Product weight: 25.80 lbs/ 11.70 kg

Besrey took one step forward and combined a push trike with a stroller bike. It offers 7 growing stages where you can let your child take a nap, enjoy being pushed, and ride.

Besrey clearly had in mind baby’s and parent’s comfort as it comes with absolutely fantastic high-quality materials – padded seat, soft grips, a 5-point harness system, even wrap-around protection is well-cushioned, so it’s comfortable for your child to learn forward at any time.

Features:

  • Foldable footrest

Joovy Tricycoo 4.1 Kid’s Tricycle

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 10 months – 5 years
  • Product weight: 14.4 lbs/ 6.53 kg
  • Max weight: 44 lbs/ 19.95 kg

Joovy brand always offers incredibly smart solutions for babies and toddlers starting with sit and stand strollers and moving forward to first ride on toys. Joovy Tricycoo is very similar to Radio Flyer 4-in-1 Stroll ‘N Trike in concept but very different in design and overall comfort.

You can start riding it as early as 10 months old. The materials used are fantastic, it has an amazingly well-padded and cushioned seat, and a gigantic canopy to protect your baby from the sun.

Features:

  • Adjustable footrest
  • Rear storage
  • Large cup holder in the front
  • Adjustable push handle
  • Rubber wheels
  • Lockable pedals

Radio Flyer Deluxe Steer & Stroll Trike

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 2 – 5 years
  • Product weight: 14.55 lbs/ 6.60 kg
  • Max weight: 49 lbs/ 22.23 kg

Another great model from Radio Flyer with a removable parental push handle and adjustable seat for different ages. There are three critical points I love about this Steer & Stroll Trike. First of all, the seat can be adjusted into three different modes as your child grows.

Secondly, the push handle can be easily installed or removed as you require. When the push handle is set, the pedals are locked and you are able to control and steer the push trike. Finally, storage. That’s right there is storage space at the back of the push trike and it is spacious enough to put some toys, including a small bottle of water.

The Best Ride On Toys for Toddlers

Age: 9 months – 3 years

Riding toys for 1-year olds is a preparation for a balance bike, whereas the latter teaches your child how to ride his first two-wheel bicycle.

So, when we are talking about baby riding toy, we imply that

  • It teaches a toddler coordination and balance while sitting and moving.
  • It motivates a child to walk quicker.
  • It makes his legs and stamina much stronger.
  • It teaches your baby to push with their feet.

And the most important two aspects

  • It is a LOT of fun for your child.
  • It allows you as a parent to free your hands and have some extra time to prepare something, such as a meal.

YBike Pewi Walking Ride On Toy

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 9 months – 3 years
  • Product weight: 4 lbs / 1.81 kg
  • Max weight: 44 lbs/ 19.95 kg

YBike Pewi is a clear winner on the market among hundreds of the best toddler ride on toys. It stands out with its versatile design and multi-directional 360° non-marking caster wheels. That’s right! It doesn’t offer steering like the majority ride on toys, but it has this essential element of wheels being able to take different directions.

And this is what exactly makes it so much fun for your little baby easily maneuvering in any possible direction without ever getting stuck. Not to mention the rapid development of motor and cognitive skills, such as balance, coordination, strength, confidence, and spatial awareness.

Features:

  • Lightweight durable aluminum frame
  • Molded plastic seat with soft foam pad
  • Easy-grip handle
  • Leg clearance for free movement
  • Multi-directional 360° non-marking caster wheels
  • It may steer too fast, so be cautious when riding outdoors

XJD Mini Trike

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 12 months – 2 years
  • Product weight: 4.1 lbs/ 1.86 kg

XJD Mini Trike is one of the cutest cool riding toys for little ones. But it is also the smallest one, it even looks small. With a very low seat height and very low handlebars, it is ideal for little riders. So, the best way to utilize XJD is to start riding it as soon as possible.

12 months – 2 years 4.1 lbs/ 1.86 kg plastic wheels ideal for very small riders due to low seat height and low handlebars.

Features:

  • Very cute design
  • Soft cushioned seat
  • Plastic wheels
  • Comfortable rubber hand grips
  • Lightweight aluminum frame

  • Easy 2-minutes assembly

Hape Scoot Around Ride On Wood Bike

 Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 12 months – 3 years
  • Floor to seat height: 8.98 inches/ 228 mm
  • Product weight: 5.7 lbs / 2.59 kg

Hape Scoot Around ride on toy prides with its stability. It has two wheels in the front and two wider ones in the back which makes it very challenging for a child to fall while riding. Besides, all four wheels are rubberized to protect the floors and ensure that wheels last longer.

The seat height is optimal for a one-year-old to reach the floor, and a higher handlebar allows your little one to ride it longer as he grows.

On the other note, Hape Scoot has a brilliantly simple and beautiful design.

  • Detailed assembly required

Chillafish Trackie

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 12 months – 5 years
  • Product weight: 3.52 ounces/ 99.79 g
  • Max. weight: 55 lbs/ 25 kg

Chillafish trackie is quite a brilliant innovative transport toy as it combines a walker, rocker, ride on toy, and even play train if you have got several Chillafish in one place.

You can easily remove wheels and let your baby rock; it also serves a great purpose to teach little babies standing, walking, pushing, and riding. The thing is that by the time toddlers master push & ride skills, they are most likely ready for a balance bike. So, by default ride on toys have a very limited time of use. Although Chillafish manufacturers state a recommended age starting at 12 months, we have got this toy at 7 months when our son started to sit and pull himself up to a standing position. And it was well-utilized ever since.

Features:

  • Comes in two colors
  • Adjustable seat height: push out the seat from the bottom, flip it over and you have a slightly higher seat.
  • Lowest seat position (to footrail, in rocker mode): 7.8 inch / 20 cm
  • Highest seat position (to floor, in ride-on mode): 13 inch / 34 cm
  • 360° swivel silent non-marking TPE wheels
  • Switch between modes in a few seconds without tools

The Best Balance Bikes for Toddlers

Age: 18 months – 7 years

A balancing bike for kids is a baby bicycle without pedals (no drivetrain) that your child has to push inevitably to be able to ride it. Some of the best balance bikes for toddlers have brakes too. The balance bike with brakes is important to have especially when your child starts to pick up speed.

The trick is that your child pushes the bike and naturally learns how to balance before progressing to pedals. Therefore, bike stabilizers won’t be needed in a real bike. It will just seem natural for your baby to push the pedals.

A balance bike is a big topic, there is a lot to know and learn. We have prepared a thorough guide with all possible case scenarios for you to make the right decision. Click to read more on technical aspects of a balance bike, including what age are balance bikes for? how to ride a balance bike? how do balance bikes work? etc.

Strider 12 Sport

Strider is a fantastic brand that focuses on balancing bikes and making your kids feel confident. Every model is very well thought through. Strider 12 Sport is designed for kids from 18 months up to five years of age and is considered to be most commonly used among other Strider options. However, Strider 12 Pro has a much lighter frame which is a plus, especially for two-year-olds.

The frame is sturdy, the seat is ergonomically padded, and the grips are just right for your child. The inseam varies from 12 to 20 inches (30-51 cm) however, it may be slightly lower for younger toddlers. The Strider’s handlebar also adjusts the heights as your child grows.

Strider 12 Sport is a super light balance bike, weighing only 6.7 lbs / 3 kg. Max. rider weight reaches up to 60 lbs/ 27 kg.

PROs

  • Tires never go flat, no-maintenance tires
  • Easy and quick tool-free assembly
  • Durable steel frame
  • High-quality and well-built
  • Snow kit and pedal conversion kits are available separately

CONs

  • Puncture-proof foam tires

Accessories:

FirstBike Street

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 2 – 5 years
  • Product weight: 8.6 lbs/ 3.9 kg

Absolutely fabulous balance bike with a very stylish design and the possibility to get a ski kit for your toddler. Safety grip, padded saddle seat, rear drum break with gradual breaking, sealed bearings, steel frame, tire options, mudguards, steering limiter, no sharp edges, reflective stickers and so much more.

FirstBike Street is lightweight, durable, strong, and weatherproof. But the ski set is my favorite!

Prevelo Alphazero

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 18 months – 3 years 
  • Product weight: 8.5 lbs/ 3.80 kg
  • Wheel size: 12″
  • Seat height: 11.50 – 14.60 inches (29.20 – 37 cm)

It is no secret that a balance bike is a great investment as it helps your child to work on core strength and teaches him how to balance. Prevelo Alphazero is another great brand that makes it happen. It is a high-quality balance bike with a custom-formed 6061 aluminum construction. Although it weighs a bit more than Woom1 or Strider 12 Sport, it is still considered to be a very light balance bike.

Like with Woom1, Alphazero offers a rear-wheel hand brake. Another great advantage is that it has a very low frame making it easy and friendly for young riders to safely get on and off the balance bike. The seat is well-cushioned. Grips can be customized in your child’s favorite color, such as green, yellow, blue, red, green, or pink. Also, you can customize the entire balance bike by applying your toddler’s name on the bike.

Price-wise it has the same range as Woom1.

The things that distinguish the Prevelo Alphazero are:

  • Lightweight 6061 aluminum frame with custom formed tubing.
  • Lightweight aluminum alloy fork with Chromoly steerer.
  • Tektro rear v-brakes with small reach brake levers.
  • Front and rear hubs with low profile rounded hex bolts and no harsh edged nuts for little legs to knock against.
  • 99% assembled. Just install the handlebar. Instructions and tools are included in the box.

The Best Trikes for Toddlers

Age: 2 – 5 years

A tricycle is very similar to a toddler’s bicycle but instead of two wheels, a tricycle offers one large, oversized wheel in the front and two in the back, thereby providing much-needed balance to a young toddler. It is quite similar to the bicycle with training wheels (stabilizers).

A little bit more on the difference between the balance bike and bicycle with training wheels is provided here.

While balance bikes prepare a child to use the real pedal bike with no stabilizers, the tricycle is considered more as a toy transport. Your child won’t be able to learn balance as much but will gain a lot more strength. In this case, we recommend considering a push trike with an adjustable and removable parent handle for additional help when your child is tired to pedal; or a 3-in-1 tricycle and balance bike which will give your child more options and you will know what he likes the best.

XJD 3 in 1 Kids Tricycles

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 10 months – 3 years
  • Product weight: 6 lbs/ 2.72 kg

Apart from one-year-old babies, XJD 3 in 1 kids’ tricycle can also be an excellent ride on toy for 2-year olds. It is actually one of the best tricycles for toddlers on the market. It has three modes to use, such as a three-wheel mode for babies. Your child either can push the bike sitting on a cushioned seat or walking it in a standing position. It can also be used as a walker. When your baby masters the three-wheel push ride on toy, it is time to learn the balance of converting XJD into a balance bike. Plus, your child always has an option to learn pedaling.

  • The best thing about XJD 3 is that it is not only a toy but a balance bike as it switches from a 3-wheel to 2-wheel mode.
  • Extremely lightweight

Features:

  • Comes in seven colors
  • Non-slip handlebar
  • Adjustable soft PU leather seat
  • Switches between three-wheel mode to two-wheel mode
  • Removable pedal
  • Handlebar angle can adjust to the best position for kids riding
  • EVA foam wheels and advanced bearings for smoother

Fisher-Price Harley-Davidson Tough Trike

Technical features:

  • Product weight: 8.2 lbs (3.72 kg)
  • Age range: 2 – 5 yearsItem 1

We probably should have started with the big hit – a mini version of Harley-Davidson. How cool is that? It is a well-made ride on toy with sufficiently big foot pedals which makes it easy for a toddler to ride and easy steering. One of the advantages of making it safe is durable rugged tires and a stable wheelbase. Finally, it has that little storage under the seat that allows your precious child to take one of his favorite toys.

Radio Flyer Scoot 2 Pedal

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 12 months – 3 years
  • Product weight: 5.95 lbs/ 2.70 kg
  • Max. weight: 42 lbs/ 19 kg

Radio Flyer is an amazing brand that specializes in kids’ mini transports offering a huge variety of the best ride on cars for kids, push toys for 1-year olds, bikes, and scooters.

One of the best ride on toys for toddlers offered by this brand is Radio Flyer Scoot About Sport, Little Red Roadster, and Scoot 2 Pedal.

Radio Flyer Scoot 2 Pedal is very different from the About Sport and Little Red Roadster as it is an actual mini pre-balance bike, walker, and trike. The whole design and conception are well-thought and different from other models. The back wheels are wide, and there is only one big wheel at the front providing pedals that flip out and fold in when your baby is ready for a pedal ride. So, this ride on toy easily gets converted into a tricycle. Mini rear storage for precious toys is available too.

Razor RipRider 360 Caster Trike

Love the idea of Razor RipRider for more active kids who love speed and danger. Dual inclined casters help to rotate your bike quite smoothly at 360° providing that safety feeling and preventing from falling off the trike. Very cool design. And the oversized large wheel helps a lot to manage the balance.

Features:

  • No assembly required
  • 360 degrees of ultimate spinning
  • MX-style handlebar with rubber grips
  • The double crown fork design
  • Welded steel frame and fork

  • Maximum weight: 50 lbs/ 22.67 kg

Radio Flyer has hundreds of ride on toy options. But this one includes a race car that can be used for on and off-track riding. The race car can be used as a ride on toy anywhere on the street or at home. It also features two footrests for added safety and comfort. The track is 6 feet (182.88 cm) long and provides an absolute fun time.

The best part is that this track has multiple uses, such as racing toy cars. It has these convenient carved tracks inside the ramp that it is easy to compete with more than two race cars.

Plus, everything folds nice and neat to fit into the base for easy storage. The base has rear wheels and can be easily moved once packed.

Step2 Unicorn Up & Down Roller Coaster

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 3 – 7 years
  • Product weight: 2.2 lbs/ 0.99 kg

Step2 Unicorn, on the contrary, offers a unicorn coaster car which is extremely lightweight. The whole product doesn’t exceed 2.5 lbs (1 kg) compared to the Radio Flyer 500 ride on toy. Besides, once your child slides down the track, the unicorn provides that cute “horse-like” sound and the magical alicorn lights up with different bright colors.

  • You would need to purchase 2 “AA” batteries for the sound and light to function.

Another good thing about this toy is that it looks like an actual roller coaster that brings you down and up. It has bright rainbow colors that match the idea of a unicorn, and it is much longer than the previous model – 9 feet (274.32 cm) long.

[convertkit form=5359227]

Power Wheels Ride On Toys

Radio Flyer Ultimate Go-Kart

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 3 – 8 years
  • Product weight: 45.86 lbs/ 20.80 kg
  • Maximum weight: 81 lbs/ 37 kg

What can be better than riding a mini race car with three-speed settings and drifting rear tires? An amazingly stylish and innovative Go-kart toy designed by Radio Flyer provides an unforgettable experience and lets your child feel as he was riding a real car as you do.

Features:

  • Three forward-driving speed settings: 2.5, 5, and 8 MPH. Single-speed reverse.

  • Product weight: 48.40-69.60 lbs/ 21.95-31.57 kg
  • Maximum weight: 130 lbs/ 59 kg
  • Battery: 12 Volt

Unarguably, this is one of the best toys for a little one to have. It doesn’t improve your child’s stamina, make him stronger, or teaches him balance; but it provides years of fun rides anywhere you go. Power wheels are more of a luxury toy to have and are mainly offered as a fun vehicle to ride rather than a teaching guide to pedaling and controlling your body movements.

Toddler Recycling Truck and Interactive Ride On Toy

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 18 months – 4 years
  • Product weight: 28 lbs/ 12.70 kg
  • Maximum weight: 44 lbs/ 19.95 kg
  • Battery: 6 Volt
  • The charger is included
  • One forward speed, push-button drive

I adore the creativity and innovative idea of this ride on toy. Although it is a power wheel, it has so much to it for little minds. First of all, it is a recycling truck. How important it is to learn to recycle nowadays? The package includes 9 recyclable toys that fit into three different slots on the back of the truck. Amazing teaching material because every time your child inserts a recyclable toy into a shape sorting slot, the truck responds with a different sound. Pull the gear and all the accessories will come out.

The front of the truck has this cute interactive face that makes sounds and talks to you. The eyes and mouth are moving too. Actually, this ride on toy provides a song, two instrumentals, and over 100 voice lines and sound effects, which is extremely important for younger toddlers.

Power Wheels Thomas Train with Track

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 12 months – 3 years
  • Product weight: 26.20 lbs/ 11.88 kg
  • 1 AA batteries required and included
  • 1 mph maximum forward speed on track and 2 mph off track

Thomas Train is created for very little kids starting from the age of one. It has a very low speed and completely safe to ride. The advantage of such a toy is a fun interactive ride as the Thomas train makes different sounds and talks to your baby. This package also includes the train track, so when your child is on track, it learns the balance. Besides, Thomas Train can be used anywhere you want, such as at home, in the park, or on a train track.

There is a red push button on the steering for your child to stop and start the train as he goes. Plus, there is a yellow press button in front of him to let Thomas make sounds and throw well-known phrases.

Steam Train Powered Ride On Toy

  • Age limit: 2 – 5 years
  • Product weight: 14 lbs/ 6.35 kg
  • Battery: 6 Volt
  • Maximum speed: 1 mph
  • Maximum weight: 45 lbs/ 20.41 kg

This is a good alternative to the Thomas Train, however, this train goes only on the train track. But there are more advantages to it, such as it can go forward and backward. Your baby easily can turn the red handle up and down that is on the panel and it will move accordingly. Plus, there is a variety of buttons that make different sounds. You can even watch the real vapor steam coming out from the train. Finally, do not forget to attach the carriage to add your favorite toy passengers.

  • Product weight: 11.31 lbs/ 5.13 kg

But the most important part is that it is a great pre-balance bike toy for a child because it teaches how to push and maneuver, as well as improves your baby’s strengths and stamina.

Poco Divo Ride-on Excavator

Technical specs:

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 3 – 5 years*
  • Product weight: 7.89 lbs/ 3.58 kg

It is a great idea as a gift and is considered to be a lovely toy that also can occupy your child’s entire morning digging the hole in the ground or cleaning the snow from your porch.

If you have tried the excavator before, you know how hard it is to move and dig with it. This is what your child will learn using this ride on excavator. The driver’s cab easily rotates. The steering wheel makes some sounds, plays music, and flashes the light.

All your child needs to do is to raise or depress the handle to make the arm up or down, and pull the metal pole to dig. Also, he will get extra three gardening tools that can be hidden under the seat.

  • The reason we added * to the age limit in the technical specs is that the toy is actually quite small for a child of 4 or even 5 years of age. The ideal age would be 18 months to 30 months.

Rockin’ Rider Legacy Grow-with-Me Pony

This Rocking Rider Pony is designed especially for little babies starting from the age of 4 months, but better to say from the time when your baby can sit properly. It has a protective tray and acts as a bouncer, so you are able to complete some house chores in the meantime. As your baby grows, the pony can serve as a rocker and then as a spring horse.

Press ears to hear the exclusive “I’m a Little Pony” song, 6 talking phrases, and sound effects with a synchronized moving mouth.

Technical specs:

  • Age limit: 9 months – 3 years
  • 3 AA batteries required

Baby Walkers

Let’s not forget about the walkers as your baby’s first transport. In my opinion, it is a mandatory baby essential that has to be in every house. First of all, walkers are quite affordable, and secondly, they do as much magic to your child’s development as no other transport does.

We got the walker when Teo was 4 months old, and it may have been a bit too early. But no! First, he started with pressing multiple buttons listening to rhymes and different sound effects. The walker helped him to push and pull himself up in a standing position at the age of six months. And then it couldn’t be greater support to master his walking ability indoors or outdoors.
