What’s on your little one’s Christmas list this year? A Baby Yoda toy? The latest LEGO kit? Keeping up with trending kids Christmas presents can be a real challenge!
Whatever the most popular gifts for kids are right now, it’s frustrating to spend money on a cool Christmas present, only to see that it’s been ‘shelved’ a few weeks later.
However, kids’ bikes and scooters are a special kind of present. Unlike many other Christmas gifts, they can be enjoyed all year round. So, whether you choose a Trunki Small Folding Kids’ Scooter (Blue), an Apollo Twinkles Unicorn Kids’ Bike (14″), or an Apollo Kinx Junior Hybrid Bike (24″), Kids’ bikes are the gifts that keep on giving!
To ensure your kids get the most out of their new bike this Christmas and beyond, here are a few ways to help them merrily whizz away all year long.
If you want to keep your child active and enjoying their new bike or scooter, why not get involved yourself and cycle as a family?
Sometimes all a child needs is a little encouragement. So, if you’re right by their side exploring the great outdoors, they should be more up for a cycling challenge come rain or shine.
Need to kit yourself out? Then take a look at our range of adult cycling equipment and bikes, so you too can accompany your child on a biking adventure.
Free lifetime safety checks
One of the main benefits of buying a kids bike or scooter from Halfords is the fact that you get a lifetime of safety checks for free. Simply take it into your nearest Halfords store with your receipt and one of our team will thoroughly check it to make sure that it’s in a good condition and safe to use.
Top bike maintenance options
For added peace of mind, you can even pay a bit extra for various service and maintenance packages, including:
- Simple repair and puncture protection
- Bronze/silver/gold service
- Cable brake service
- Hydraulic brake service
- Gear service
Prices for our Kids Bike CycleCare start from just £10 and will give you peace of mind to make sure your kid can enjoy their present for years to come.
Or to avoid unwanted tears, you can even bring their bike or scooter in for repair jobs too like tyre replacement, hub servicing, spoke replacement, chain or cassette fitting and much more.
Additionally, we also offer free 14-day Cycleplan bike insurance to protect your bike against theft and damage. Full cover information can be found on our Cycleplan bike insurance page.
Explore different cycle routes
Another way to make sure that your little one continues to use their new set of wheels is to give them the opportunity to explore their local area. There are loads of exciting things to see and you never know what might be hiding at the end of the path.
And if you want a change then, why not mix things up a bit? Turn left at the end of the road for once instead of right. You and your kids might discover a whole new world just waiting around the corner.
