Joovy Bicycoo Balance Bike Review-Giveaway!

It is spring so it is time to bring out all the outdoor equipment for my kiddos. I have to tell you that Hayley’s favorite part of summer is trying to ride her bike, however, she does not have the balance to be able to adequately do this.  She ends up getting frustrated which then causes meltdown centry.  So, I was beyond excited when I found out Joovy made an incredible bicycoo that would be pave the way to learning how to ride a bike.


So, what is  a Joovy Bicycoo?- Plain and simple, it is the most exciting balance bike on the market, that is a top choice for all your children’s riding needs. It is an extremely well made, durable balanced bike recommended for children age 3 and above. There are many options for balance bikes but not too many that will hold up as incredible as the Joovy Bicycoo does. The frame is aluminum so it is just as strong as all of the high end bikes. It is also extremely lightweight. Hayley has absolutely no trouble picking up the bike herself and bringing it outside when we are ready to start riding. Another advantage of being lightweight is is much easier for the children to control the steers. I know Hayley had a fit when she tried to turn the handle bars on her regular bike we got her. She got mad and frustrated that she did not have the strength to maneuver her bike. With the Joovy balance bike being so lightweight, it was a cinch for her to steer with the handle bars.


Another great thing (oh there are so many things I love about the Joovy bicycoo balance bike) is the tires are made of a very durable rubber rather than the cheaper plastic tires found on many bikes these days. By having these rubber tires, it allows for a very smooth ride. Some of the other features of the Joovy balance bike, is it has a height adjustable seat for your child that can be changed as your child gets older. Along with being adjustable, the seat is extremely comfortable so your kids bums won’t get tired after riding.  There is also a hand brake for the rear tire that is easily accesible.

You might ask why a balance bike rather than a training bike? The answer is simple: With the Joovy balance bike you are actually learning the #1 facet to riding a bike: balance. Hayley can pedal but she does not have the balance. By riding a training bike, she is still not learning the balance aspect.  Allowing children to learn the idea of balance is key to building their confidence, as well as their skills, to learning to ride a regular two-wheeler. Once balance is learned,  transitioning to a big bike will never be easier.

I am happy to say Hayley absolutely loves her Joovy Bicycoo balance bike. Each day, she is getting better and better with balance. Not only am I seeing this balancing helping her riding, she is also super confident now that she could do it by herself. She always was so frustrated she could never do the bike herself. She got mad when I tried to push her, but equally mad when she could’t do it. With the Joovy balance bike, she gets so excited and screams, “Mommy, I could do it myself. Look at what a big girl I am”. She is also started  going from the riding position on the bike with her legs on the floor, to now beginning to lift her legs and balancing  this way. It is really so awesome to watch! For those of you who might be interested in how the set up is, to put together the Joovy, I will tell you that I did it all by myself- that should be enough to tell you how easy it is to set up!  I give this product an A+ and a definite summer item for you kids.

    My granddaughter (who turns 2 in August). Would also be used by the next grandchild (due in September).

  2. says

    I would get the black so I could use it for both kids and hopefully wouldn’t show to much “dirt” by the time my daughter could use it.

  3. says

    Who do I want to win this bike for? ALL 3 of my kids!! I have an 8 year old who can’t balance on his bike, I have a 6 year old who refused to ride his bike, even with training wheels because he doesn’t get the “balance” idea, and I have my daughter coming up soon who is going to want to start riding bikes soon.

  4. Jennifer O says

    I would LOVE to win this from my little cousin, i know he would adore the red one, that’s his favorite color.

  5. Jessica Bleasdale says

    I like the red for my son

  9. kim says

    after reading your article , i realized my daughter was having the same problem with the bike i bought her, was too hard to maneuver. i saw these bikes before but thought they were harder to ride , after reading what u wrote you convinces me to try this instead!

  10. Cindy B says

    If it’s the BMX then I pick the greenie and if it’s the GT then I pick the red. Very cool either way, thanks for another great giveaway.

  13. Tina F says

    The black I would love as it can be passed down from my great nephew to my great niece

  14. says

    I would love to give this to my special needs son. He just turned 6 and is just trying to understand the whole concept of riding a bike. We got him the one with the bar on the back but it gets in the way alot and really doesn’t make him do it himself we find we are pushing him more. I would love to get him the blue one.

  15. B eth says

    Black would be swell!
    My son has outgrown a smaller version of this pedal-less bike and i have been searching for a bigger option. This is perfect.

  16. gibberish (Julie G.) says

    I’d have to choose the ‘Greenie’ colour for my grandkids to ride at my house. Green does either gender, no arguments from the rugrats!

  17. Lori says

    I like the look of the black bike. This would be a great bike for my son. He is just learning to ride a bike and I would love to win this for him!

    I love the red bike – I have a 3 year old who’d love it and his little sister would probably be pushing to use it too!

  22. Zelma MacDonald says

    I would like the black one if I win.
    I have grandsons and granddaughters, so black
    would work well for grandma and grandpa to
    have when our grandchildren visit.

  23. says

    black and would want it for my nephew cause he can grow with it he is 2 right now but i’m sure my daughter will wanna ride it a little too before she out grows it :) thx

  24. April Christianson says

    I would have to pick the black because when my daughter was done with it it could be given to my son to use once he was old enough.

  25. Linda says

    Probably Black!
    I have triplets and my sister-in-law has twins. We could definately find a good home for one of these!

    My son would love the green one since at the moment he thinks he is the incredible hulk!


  1. [...] I have recently talked about the Joovy Bicycoo which Hayley has used religiously each day. She has gained so much confidence by riding her Joovy Balance Bike and I am pretty sure, that I have to 100 % credit Joovy with teaching Hayley how to ride a regular two wheeler. By using the Joovy Bicycoo, we are going to completely bypass training wheels. To see my full review, simply click here: [...]
