Trunki Folding Balance Bike – 10” & 12”, Ages 3-5

What better gift this Christmas than giving your little one the chance to explore on two wheels for the first time – and the perfect way to do it is with the Trunki Folding Balance Bike.

A gem of a balance bike, the Trunki has a unique folding mechanism which allows you to easily fold and carry it, meaning you can take it with you on all your adventures!

Learning to ride can be tiring work and the included carry strap gives your kid some much-needed rest as you can tow them along. It also allows you to carry the bike over your shoulder after the school run.

Exclusive to Halfords, you won’t find the bike anywhere else, and we have a range of cool helmets, stabilisers and other accessories that’ll help make this Christmas magical!
