The Tadpole Mini balance bike is the latest edition to the excellent Frog Bikes range.

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.

How to choose a Child's Bike

In contrast to many children's bikes, Frog bikes are sized by the length rather than age, as this is the most reliable way of getting the right size of bike for each child. Age alone isn't a reliable measure as there is a large spread of "normal" leg lengths & heights for age.

Please take the time to measure the rider's inside leg. It's easy to measure:

  1. Stand the child in socks against wall
  2. Place a small book between their legs, as high as is comfortable
  3. Ask the child to move away and measure from the top of the book to the floor

Once you have measured the inside leg, use this table to find the right size bike for your child. Note we give the MINIMUM inside leg length for each bike, with the saddle at it's lowest setting. At this height, the child will safely be able to get their feet to the ground. Don't worry - Frog Bikes have long seat posts, so the saddle can be raised a long way as the rider grows.

Of course all children have different length arms and torsos too, so to ensure a comfortable riding position, the handlebar height can be tailored, and saddles can be slid back and forwards on their rails.(These adjustments are easy to do and just need an allen key; instructions are in the manual that comes with each bike.

Mr Moore This is the cutest bike we’ve ever seen, very well made and our 1 year old gets on and walks around on it no problem.
AB 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.
Mr A 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.
Nick 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.
Mr Gueripel 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 .
Karin 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.
