The Tadpole Mini balance bike is the latest edition to the excellent Frog Bikes range. A smaller version of the popular Tadpole the Tadpole Mini is designed for even smaller children who just can’t wait to ride. The Tadpole Mini is the perfect ‘first bike’ for your child to begin learn to balance and ride. The Mini is suitable for children aged 1 and 2 with a minimum inside leg measurement of 24cm
The Tadpole Mini is made from lightweight, sturdy aluminium with every detail designed and specced to suit the needs of very small children including an easy to reach rear brake lever for small hands, a quick release seat post for easy height adjustment and a clever locking headset means the handlebars have a steering limiter, which is safer for little learners.

Really lovely balance bike. We gave it to our 1 year old as his birthday present, thinking he might be on it in 6 months. He hasn`t loved it from day 1, I have to crawl along behind him as he`s not too steady yet and he can`t go solo, but I do think there is a good chance he will be able to ride before he can walk! Minor grumble, the saddle needed tightening and the brakes were too tight so needed slackening to stop rubbing, so set up took 20 minutes including invoking and fixing on the bars/bell.
Ordered this bike to my grand daughter and within a couple of days it was delivered to Sweden free of charge, impressive! Also very satisfied with the quality and attention to details in this little vehicle, e. g. proper Tekto brake and internal cabel routing. They even included a spare brake handle. All in all top notch service and quality of delivered bike.
Very pleased - excellent build quality.
4 stars because bars and grips are quite chunky for small hands, would be a perfect bike if these were narrower, as used on other brands.
Bien pour les jeunes enfants (ma fille a 19 mois) qui veulent essayer le draisienne tôt mais qui sont trop petit pour la majorité des draisienne du marché. Elle est confortable légère et de qualité .
A voir dans le temps si sa petite taille nous permettra de la garder assez longtemps .
The smallest balance bike on the market! My son got it for his 1-year bday, would lie if I said he loves it, but he can already walk with it if assisted, by summer he will probably run by himself. Good quality.
