Our bikes arrive fully built, yet to prevent damage during transit the handlebars are turned and the pedals are not attached. Upon unboxing, straightening the handlebars and installing the pedals will be necessary. To do so, you'll need 5 & 6 mm Allen keys and a 15 mm spanner.

The Tadpole Mini balance bike is the smallest balance bike around and will make riding as easy as walking. It is essentially a toddler bike without pedals. This 10-inch balance bike is a playful way to introduce toddlers aged 18 months+ to the world of cycling, providing them with the balance necessary for riding a bike. This premium toddler’s bike has a lightweight, sturdy aluminium frame, weighing just 3.46kg, making the bike easy to manoeuvre and easy for parents to carry.
The Tadpole Mini balance bike is a great alternative to training wheels. It comes fully equipped with high-spec age-specific components, designed for comfort and longevity.
The toddler-sized saddle with quick-release seat post allows for easy height adjustment as they grow and become more confident, and the Tektro brakes with small, easy-to-reach brake levers, mean better control for mini riders. It also comes with chunky tyres for maximum stability and grip, and for added security, the bike offers the added benefit of a steering lock, which acts as a safety mechanism to prevent oversteering and serious falls.
Please note: Valve dust caps are not supplied with this model in order to adhere to safety regulations

One of the biggest temptations is to buy a child's first bike that they will grow into. However, this will likely have the opposite effect and put your child off bikes and cycling altogether! Another common mistake is to purchase a budget kids' bike but these models are often as heavy as a child which can lead to frustration at not being able to cycle. That’s why Frog bikes are lightweight and designed to specifically accommodate the anatomy of children.
