From Toys to baby food, pushchairs to car seats, breast pumps to nappies the M&B Awards puts all the essential baby purchases to the test.
With a small army of mums everything gets rigorously tested to bring the definitive list of purchases, Mother and Baby believe you should invest in.
Strider 12 Sport Balance Bike has been shortlisted for the Best Toddler Toy for 24 months plus alongside other fabulous toddlers toys from the likes of Micro-Scooters and Leapfrog.
Strider Balance Bikes are indestructible but super light starting at 2.2 kg's so perfect for toddlers. With the lowest seat postion on the market, (27cm) Strider Kids start as soon as they can walk, but the clever bit is the same bike accomodates and adjusts to fit a 5 years old up to a 48 cm inside leg.
With nothing to confuse, and nothing built into the bike that you don't need, these bikes are designed around toddlers. Lever pulled brake's that kids can't reach just add unnecessary complication - we have even seen kids take their hands of the handlebars to reach them. Not a good move!
Instead children learn to stop with their feet and with no steering limiters, they learn balance and to make turns instinctively.
Puncture proof tyres, no tool assembly and the opportunity to come racing and ride with others at events,
it is no wonder the bike made the short list and has taught over 1 million children to ride a bike.
Although the category is Best Toddler Toy as soon as you join the Strider family you will realise this bike is far more than a Toy, but a learning tool and the safe way to learn to ride a bike. Buy now www.striderbike.co.uk
