ROLLERS – R1 & R2

A new range of wheeled toys allowing children aged 2+ years to just roll with it this Christmas! The aptly named ‘Rollers’ are designed to encourage children to get outside and active with the family. There are two within the range, the R1 and R2, both innovatively designed so that parents buy two products in one. Rollers convert from a seated wheeled toy to a scooter and help develop a child’s balance and core motor skills.

THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT

The R1 and R2 are easy to assemble – just what you want on Christmas morning. Being both a bike and scooter is great because it keeps little ones engaged for longer and also helps them to develop slightly different muscles. As toddlers are just learning what they like, the combination means that they can try both and see which one they favour without costing you double. Both the R1 and R2 are light to carry, which is useful for school runs and can easily fit in a car boot for any activities further afield. The perfect gift to get your tiny ones to start finding their outdoor spirit!

MARC MARQUEZ SUPERBIKE

This wooden balance bike is designed to mirror real big engine sports motorbikes.

The Superbike looks really dynamic and the motorbike design really gives this a different appeal when stacked up against the cuter looking bikes on the market. It is fantastic for helping very young children learn to balance, meaning a much easier transition to a pedal bike for them – often doing away with stabilisers completely. A striking choice for a first bike this Christmas!
