We just love hearing from our customers and consider everyone ‘family’ when they have a Joovy product.Â Here is a precious picture of two brothers and their new wheels and a message from their mom:

Are you getting ready to teach your child how to ride a bike this spring?Â The question at hand is: training wheels or balance bike???Â I love talking to parents who are getting ready to teach their child this milestone activity and oftentimes I ask, training wheels or balance bike?
Many parents have not heard of balance bikes or how this simplifies the learning.Â This simple bike without any pedals looks funny to parents who grew up with the security of training wheels flanking the rear wheel of their ‘big kid bike!’
Many parents agree that training wheels can provide a negative learning experience: we put them on, the child gets comfortable and then we take them away.Â Some children do fine, but for others, it is a negative learning experience and sometimes even traumatic.
Balance bikes, quite simply put, introduce the idea of balance before anything else.Â The concept is easy: children master balance first, build confidence and then they make the transition to the ‘big kid bike’ because all they need to learn is to pedal!
Parents who have used the balance bike with their little ones will proudly tell you how their kiddos took to the thing and learned to balance, go fast and discover this new found independence!
Why not?Â Let’s celebrate balance bikes by giving away a Joovy Bicycoo!
