The bamboo trike bike - converts from 3 wheels to a balance bike for kids and toddlers. Add a matching Kinderfeets basket or wooden crate.
Is it possible for little ones to learn this life lesson early on? We believe the answer is a resounding “yes!” With our sustainably-made, intentionally-designed collections that support physical and cognitive child development, children are given the tools needed to pave a path of independent, fearless adventure.
Inspired by traditional Dutch bikes, Kinderfeets is a play on words for the Dutch word “kinderfiets,” which translates to “child’s bike.” From the outside, Kinderfeets’ bikes, trikes and other products may appear simple in design, but the purposeful characteristics of each one ensure child safety and low environmental impact.
Crafted with non-timber bamboo and/or birch wood, our balance bikes and trikes are suited with low step-through frames, adjustable seats, foot pegs, biodegradable tires and padded handlebars that guarantee comfort and stability.
“Why bamboo?” you might ask. Well, the answer is pretty simple.
Bamboo is extremely adaptable and resilient, grows incredibly fast and has the ability to self-regenerate! It also doesn’t require toxic chemicals or artificial pesticides for growth and maintenance, which makes it both toxin-free and more cost effective. In comparison to other hardwoods, it’s much more flexible (even though it has dense fibers) and it’s also pest resistant. When we’re not utilizing bamboo, we use sustainable birch wood – another fast-growing and eco-friendly option - or German beech wood from FSC-certified factories.
Other products like our Waldorf-Classroom-inspired Kinderboard offer little ones an active and imaginative play experience that is hard to beat! Our additional baby walkers, bike accessories and educational playthings inspire motor and cognitive skill development while also cultivating an appreciation for adventure.
Further environmentally-friendly practices like using non-toxic, water-based paints and lacquers, minimal packaging and recycled paper for product information not only help illustrate our sustainable business approach but also set children up for a lifetime of planet-friendly living.
Life without training wheels is a life fully explored – it’s a journey bravely ventured, a pursuit of freedom and a quest for independence. For a child to explore the world on their own is a courageous choice – serendipitously guiding themselves toward self-assurance and accomplishment! Its the perfect first bike for babies and toddlers and the trike bike that has everything. And it comes with an optional wooden crate or rattan basket.
Nevertheless, it’s not only Kinderfeets children who go far, but all of us who choose to let go of a little control and release our inner childlike spirit. If we are all willing to challenge our own complacencies and comforts in an effort to grow, we will evolve and change as one. By doing so, we will help create a more vibrant and beautiful world for our children one balance bike at a time.
Also available are crates and baskets for carrying those special softies and toys and Kinderfeet Helmets.
