Wouldn't spend your money...
I purchased the purple balance bike, when it arrived it was a completely different colour. But I put this aside and gave it the benefit of the doubt.
On assembly have found the Allen key clams too small to fit on the bike, had to get my partner to hammer a metal wedge into the clamps to pry them open large enough to fit the frame.
When attaching the wheels have found that the bike frame is slightly bent/ not straight, also the frame/stickering was already damaged when removed from the packaging.
I also purchased the matching purple helmet th...

Allen key doesn't fit
It's lightweight and sturdy.
However, the assembly was very difficult as the 2 Allen keys provided doesn't fit. A quick Google search revealed that this is a common issue faced by most customers. If it's a common issue, why is it not resolved yet? It took us a lot of time and effort to open the Allen keys and fix it in the right place.

Awesome learning tool! Acceptable quality for the price
Great little bike that gave my 3yo complete confidence in riding, after being scared to even get near a bike. Very little instruction needed from us; he just took to it and gradually started pushing the limits on his own. His legs are a bit short for his age, but the seat adjusts low enough for him to be comfortable. He is now graduating to a pedal bike as he is coasting for long sections, especially through puddles!
Only docked 1 star as the handle grips slide inward off the handlebar, leaving the exposed bar ends which have a bit of an edge to them. The handlebar also gets out of alignment with the front wheel frequently.

My Son Loves It!
I would just like to start by saying how much my son loves his new balance bike. He loves the colour an tells me its colour everyday, he tries to ride it as best he can and will always be a little risk taker. It seems to be a very sturdy bike and a bike that will grow with my son.

A lot of mileage
Love at first sight and at 2yrs old this is such a good way for them to learn balance. It’s so low to the ground that their legs stop them from falling. Really love this product! Worth the money.
Customer service Terrible
Bought this bike for my son for Christmas and it bend and lost the back tire! Son got thrown off and hurt. Requested help and replacement from little nations due to being still lots within the warranty timeframe but only got questioned if I can’t bend it back and put together again plus got blamed that I then didn’t Tiden the bike Hard enough ! Was build by my partner and grandpa so two strong man. Worst support ever ! Do not buy this they won’t help u if something breaks

Many issues, poor build quality
Paint looks good... that's about it.
Allenkey and multi fit thing sent with bike don't fit the only 2 clamps that they're needed for.
Bushes and Front fork are loose in the frame so the steering is extremely light and unsafe. Really wouldn't recommend.

Great sturdy little bike!
I’m so impressed with this little bike! It’s solid, sturdy, well made and so quick to put together. I love that the seat goes a little lower than other bikes on the market and that the seat and handlebars are so simple to adjust, no tools needed!

False advertising, poor customer service.
I purchased this purple balance bike for my son which was advertised as a nice purple.
I opened the box to a lavender colored balance bike, no where near the same purple.
I emailed asking if there had been some mistake. They told me that I received the latest model which had upgraded paint and they were yet to change the colors on their website.
I asked if they could send me the new colors they had so I could make a decision as to what color I would like. It took them too long to respond so by the time they did they only had blue left. I said...

Arrived faulty !
The bike itself is good, feels strong...once put together. However, on arrival, the seat pole head was slightly bent so I couldn’t get the clamp over it. I also couldn’t get the wheel rod through the wheel as there was metal over the centre. I was able to get this fixed but had to seek help. Customer service didn’t offer a replacement bike just suggestions on how to fix it. Wasn’t ideal but we did get there in the end.

Perfect first bike!
Purchased for our 2 year old as a first bike & he loves it. It came quickly, was easy to assemble & even easier to adjust to correct height. Very happy with the purchase.

Questions & Answers
I'm also stuck getting the seat clamp on. It looks like the seat pole is a bit bent out of shape. Any tips on how to fix this problem?
Does anyone know the height of the lowest seat setting?
Gosh, good question! I've been searching far and wide for this information! It's like they don't want you to know. Same for the weight of it.
It would be very helpful to know the seat adjustment range, handle bar adjustment range and the weight of the bike. Anyone??
I ended up buying one so have just done a quick measure for you. It's about 28cm from the ground to the top of the seat (in the middle as the back of it rises).
Great Thank you so much :) Any chance you could also please measure the max seat height and also the handle bar height range?
What is the full weight of the bike please?
