Being at home for the past few months, we’ve been spending a lot of time enjoying some simple outdoor activities including (almost every day) bike riding! Since we love this family activity so much, we jumped at the chance to check out Canadian brand, Coco Village and their line of eco-friendly wooden balance bikes!
Balance bikes are an awesome way to introduce your child to biking without the pressure of peddling. Your child will gain confidence while focusing on balance, making it that much easier to transition to a pedal bicycle! Coco Village offers 3 different varieties of balance bikes (perfect for different age groups) and we tested out was their largest model- the Grande – perfect for kiddos aged 3-5.
Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, Coco Village bikes come flat packaged with simple instructions that make it easy to assemble! With puncture-resistant tires and an adjustable saddle-style seat, this bike is incredibly comfortable and can hold a maximum weight of 65lbs. The Grande bike is also incredibly lightweight – only 5lbs – making it easy for young bikers to feel confident!
We asked our friend and mama reviewer, Brenna, to test out the Memphis Balance Bike (and matching helmet) with her daughter who just turned 3 this summer.
Read everything she loved about their new bike below and if you love it as much as we do, you won’t want to miss their current sale! Coco Village’s line of bikes are all 50% off right now, plus you’ll save an extra 10% when you use code posterchild10
“We jumped for joy when we received our CocoVillage balance bike and helmet!
I felt a little bit intimidated when I saw I had to put it together but let me just say that the intimidation was totally unwarranted! It took me about 10 mins to put the whole bike together. Everything you need comes in the box including Allen keys and very handy visual instructions.
After a few minutes of tightening all the bolts, my daughter was off to the races! She has a tricycle but has never fully gotten the hang of the pedals, so she was ecstatic that she had full control of the bike using just her feet.
After a quick ride, we readjusted the seat to a more appropriate height for her. After that she was much more comfortable and confident. We love the comfiness of the leather seat and the soft rubber grips on handlebars make it easy to control. Even the helmet has a great fit, my daughter did not want to take it off! This particular design, Memphis, is the perfect amount of colour for the kids and softness on the eyes for the parents. Its modern yet fun – a great combination!
Overall, this bike screams quality and we LOVE the fact that we’re supporting a Canadian brand. The first question I get in the morning is “when can I ride my bike?” And the last question before bed is “Mom, when I wake up tomorrow, can I ride my bike?” I really think that speaks for itself just how much she loves her Coco Village balance bike and helmet!”
