Derived from the Dutch for "children" and "bicylce", a Kinderfeets is a wooden push bike designed to ease the transition to pedal-powered bicycle at a toddler's comfort level.
The patented Kinderfeets Tiny Tot Tricycle/Balance Bike - is a 2-in-1 bike that easily converts from a tricycle to a 2-wheel balance bike! Designed for "tiny tots" ages 12 to 24 months, Kinderfeets Tiny Tot starts off as a tricycle and, when ready, it easily converts into a 2-wheel balance bike. It's the smallest 2-in-1 balance bike on the market! Generally, toddlers will transition to 2-wheels at around 17 months of age.
Other push bikes have inflatable tires that go flat, interrupting the fun. But Kinderfeets’ tires don’t require air.
Seat height grows from 23 cm-28 cm. Weight capacity: 32 kg. Tire dimensions: 18 cm.
Suitable from 12-24 months.
Available in:Bamboo, Cherry Red, Coral, and Sage
Kinderfeets™ is the product of award-winning designer and Netherlands native, Oscar Mulder. Having grown up in the Netherlands, where bicycling is a way of life, Oscar wanted to share this with his then two-year old son, Sebastiaan, in their life in San Francisco.
Oscar searched for the perfect push bike to fit Sebastiaan’s needs, but couldn’t find exactly what he was looking for. The great-grandson of a Dutch bike designer, and a designer by trade, Oscar pursued the challenge himself and created a prototype.
Once he and his son began cruising around their neighbourhood, neighbours starting asking questions about the small push bike and urging Oscar to pursue the creation as a full-fledged business. Kinderfeets was born soon after.
Inspired by traditional Dutch bikes, Kinderfeets is a play on words for the Dutch word “kinderfiets” which translates to “child’s bike.”
Kinderfeets is a small training bike with a low step-through frame without pedals that allow children’s feet to touch the ground–it’s the best way to prepare them for learning to ride a full-sized bike.
The innovative foot pegs Oscar added serve as comfort tools to familiarise children with how and where their feet will be placed when they graduate to a full bike; the pegs ultimately allow them to find their balance, comfortable speed and prepare them for pedals. The bike’s adjustable saddle allows for flexibility and complete comfort.
When Oscar’s twins were born 5 years later, he decided to develop a new push bike to add to the collection; the Kinderfeets Tiny Tot is designed to get little ones riding as early as one year.
Kinderfeets encourages children to live an active, adventurous lifestyle along side their parents. The award-winning quality push bike models are eco-friendly and feature a whimsical, patented design. The wooden frames are handmade and the bikes come in a variety of chalk-board finishes.
Kinderfeets' Environmental Philosophy:
There is a Native American proverb that cautions us to “treat the Earth well … we are borrowing it from our children.” Kinderfeets set out, they wanted to make an investment in their children’s future.
Their balance bikes are made from sustainable birch wood, from a replenishable source. The airless tires are completely biodegradable. They use minimal packaging material made from recycled paper and water based-ink. The chalkboard finish paint (not available on Tiny Tot) is water-based and the lacquer is non-toxic. And with Trees for the Future, Kinderfeets plants a tree for every bike we sell.
Their efforts recently earned the Toy Man® Eco-Recognition Seal, but it's our children’s children who will benefit from from their environmentally conscious efforts.
