The Ride-ons That Encourage Vital Skills Development

"This new lean-to-steer scooter encourages core strength development which the 3 wheel design provides stability needed for little ones ages 2-5 who are still needing to learn balance."

When we first received communication from the YBIKE team, we were overly excited. Fast forward a few days and Gia's first YBIKE arrived, the YBIKE Pewi. It quickly became Gia's favourite activity and with the benefits offered, we were very happy parents.


The YBIKE Pewi boasts a fun and engaging design which provides support for a child to build their strength and confidence needed to start walking on their own. The Pewi also promotes essential motor skills development such as balance, coordination and body in space awareness. Suitable for ages 9 months to 2 years old, the best feature of this little rideon is the castor wheels. We firmly believe the Pewi provided Gia with the skill and ability to take her first step unassisted, and once she did, there was no stopping her!

Just a few months ago, Gia was named one of YBIKE's Brand Ambassador's and with that came the arrival of 2 more brightly coloured YBIKE products. The YBIKE Cruze and the YBIKE Session.

With the YBIKE Cruze scooter, gliding down the pavement has never looked this cool. This new lean-to-steer scooter encourages core strength development which the 3 wheel design provides stability needed for little ones ages 2-5 who are still needing to learn balance. The YBIKE Cruze features a curved handlebar to help balance your child as they ride and an easy to use rear foot break to slow them down.

The YBIKE Session is a balance bike, designed to grow with your child with two easy size adjustment options. It features a strong steel frame and a wider fork for extra durability and control. Inflatable rubber tyres provide for better traction and ride performance, be it at the pump track, on the trails or a casual cruise on the path. We're excited to watch Gia advance from basic balance to being able to one day ride a pedal bike with ease and confidence, without the use of stabilisers.

"What Milly and I love about YBIKE is that their products have been locally designed to enhance children's balance and boost their gross motor skills; and to us, this is so vitally important."

As parents, we all want the absolute best for our children, especially when it comes to ride-ons such as these. What Milly and I love about YBIKE is that their products have been locally designed to enhance children's balance and boost their gross motor skills; and to us, this is so vitally important.


YBIKE started in 2007 when their Founder and Chief Dreamer, Jaco, was looking for cool ride-ons for his own young kids. The team discovered a need for a new innovative product that would combine aesthetics, functionality and most importantly the developmental benefits of movement and play. From there the idea grew and developed into what is known now as the YBIKE Original. Since those early days, YBIKE has become a recognised brand internationally with distribution to over 40 countries across the globe. The YBIKE family has expanded to include over a dozen innovative and fun ride-ons, and because of their distinctive design and functionality, they have won numerous acclaimed international awards.


We are so excited to be associated with YBIKE and even more so that Gia has the best when it comes to children's developmental ride-ons.
