To help your children start on the right foot, begin training with a beautiful vintage bicycle including training wheels. 

Encourage your children to have fun whilst being active with our range of beautiful children's bicycles that come in different sizes for different ages. The 12 inch bicycles are recommended for 2.5/3+ year olds, The 14 inch bicycles for 4+ year olds and the 16 inch Bicycles for 4/5 + year olds. At Swanky Boutique you can find some really fabulous bicycles for kids from amazing brands such as the Swedish brand Stoy and the English brand Bobbin.

We've also got a range of Balance Bicycles for younger children available that are recommended for children as young as 2 year olds. Balance bicycles look a lot like regular bicycles, except they have no pedals and no training wheels. Kids learn the balance aspect of riding a bike first before pedals are introduced. Balance is often the hardest part of the process, so once they’ve mastered this step, moving up to a regular bicycle feels more natural.
