Benefits of the Guardian Balance Bike

Feature icon, Green Checkmark Teaches the Fundamentals First Created with Lunacy Created with Lunacy

Balance bikes teach a child to balance, steer, and stop without adding in the complication of pedaling. When a child first learns to ride a bike using training wheels they learn to depend on them rather than learning the necessary fundamentals needed to ride a pedal bike.

    Disappointed and Frustrated - Balance Bike Order Still Not Delivered!

    This bike was intended to be the birthday gift for my child. I placed the order well in advance, ensuring enough time for it to be shipped and arrive before the intended date, but we were waiting for two months for its arrival. And it still yet hasn’t arrived. I contacted the customer service and they insured me that they will find out what happened with my order and reach me back, but as one week passed no one contacted me and there is no update about the order. I urge others to think twice before placing an order with this company, as they have left me and my family feeling deeply frustrated and resentful.

    Hi Valentina, Thank you so much for your review! It looks like there was an issue with the first shipment that we sent you, perhaps lost by the carrier or stuck, but my teammate Adam went ahead and sent you a free replacement as soon as we received notice of the shipping problem. I am so sorry that it arrived later than originally anticipated! I hope your little one is enjoying their balance bike. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns- we are always happy to help! -Laura @Guardian Bikes

    Had to wait 2 months to receive the bike

    Except for the 2 months delay, bike works fine and super easy to assemble.
