The existing wooden balance bikes have some issues. When my son was 2 year old he didn't fit on them yet, when he finally did he had nowhere to put his feet when cruising. He also wanted to draw on them but couldn't due to the material. I have been a professional designer for 20 years so this was a great design challenge for me. these were the final design objectives, we have also received a patent on them:
-6 Chalkboard finish color options, this allows children to customize their balance bike with chalk.
-Foot pegs for cruising, this will make the transition to pedals even easier.
-Low step through frame, allows for lower settings of the seat and easy on-and-off of the rider.
-Forever-Air-Tires, no more flat tires for absolute minimum maintenance.
-Washable seat cover.
