With a smaller frame but the same pneumatic tyres, rear wheel brake and steering lock (to prevent oversteer by over enthusiastic arm movements), the Tadpole Mini has all the features we’ve come to expect from a Frog Bike, but in a package for smaller riders. The Tadpole Mini balance bike is suitable for children with an inner leg measurement of 23cm, which means this balance bike will appeal to parents of younger children (1 year and over depending on height) who are desperate to get on a balance bike. It’s also ideal for those with small children, whose legs aren’t long enough for a standard size balance bike, but are developmentally ready to move onto one (usually about 3 years and over). It adds to the Frog Balance Bike range, which also includes a “standard” Tadpole 12″ wheeled balance bike, and the Tadpole Plus, which has 14″ wheels for taller riders. Here at Cycle Sprog we are really pleased to see Frog offering something for this size of rider, as we never cease to be amazed at how many little kids have fantastic balance biking skills.
