At Bike Club we believe that Frog Bikes are an exceptional choice for kids who want to explore the world on two wheels. With a range of different types of Frog Bikes, you can be sure that your child will find the perfect bike for their needs.

From balance bikes for toddlers to mountain bikes for teens, Frog Bikes has something to offer everyone. In this guide, we'll take a look at some of the different types of frog children’s bikes and how they can help your child get out and explore. 

Who are Frog Bikes?

In a sentence, Frog Bikes is an award-winning UK company that designs and manufactures lightweight and affordable kids' bikes. 

Founded in 2013, they offer a range of bikes for children aged 2 to 14, from their Tadpole Mini balance bike to the Frog 78, with sizes ranging from 12” to 26” wheels. 

Frog children’s bikes are designed to make cycling fun, safe and easy for kids, and Frog shares our passion for getting more children on bikes. With their lightweight frames and adjustable components, they are perfect for growing children who want to ride with confidence.

Frog Bike Design

As a premium kids bikes brand, Frog designs all their bikes down to the smallest detail, considering the size of the rider and their requirements. Frog bikes are also made to be hardy and childproof, with components from high quality manufacturers like Shimano and Kenda, and lightweight aluminium tubing.

All parts of the bike are manufactured with the child in mind, as opposed to simply scaling down an adult bike.

Frog aims to make cycling enjoyable for your child which is why they make sure their bikes are comfortable to ride through well designed bike geometry.

In addition to this, shorter cranks and scaled handlebars mean all aspects of the bike are tailored to childrens’ proportions.  

They also look great too, coming in a range of appealing colours. All of these great features help explain their popularity and acclaim from parents and experts alike. 

Frog’s Tadpole Balance Bikes

Frog offers three balance bikes covering kids from 18 months to four years old - the Tadpole Mini, Tadpole, and Tadpole Plus. Balance bikes are designed to give young children the best introduction to cycling, teaching them balance and coordination. The unique design of the bike allows the child to balance themselves and use their feet to move, making it easier for them to learn how to ride.

Frog’s balance bikes are some of the finest on the market, being manufactured from high quality parts and intuitive to ride.

Their Tadpole bikes all feature easily reachable brakes for short arms, and safety steering lock to prevent oversteering.

They also come with adjustable handlebars and seat height so that they can grow with your child. 

Frog Balance Bikes provide an enjoyable and safe way for your child to learn how to ride a bike while having fun at the same time.

Our members love Frog Balance Bikes too. One five star review of the Frog Tadpole said:

 “My son absolutely loves it, the colour is really vibrant and he loves that he’s now got a brake to use. This seemed another great step towards a pedal bike as he’s going to be so used to using a brake instead of his feet to stop himself. I can’t rave about this bike enough, absolutely love it!” Katie B. - Bike Club Member

Frog First Pedal Bikes
