An innovative toy bicycle that wobbles is able to assist kids in learning to balance and developing motor skills.
- 11 april 2012
British company Early Rider has developed a revolutionary ride-on bike for children between the ages of one and two. The lightweight and curvaceous Spherovelo Juno is built using two spherical balls covered with a hard nylon shell. The bike can be switched from ‘stable’ to ‘unstable.’ In the unstable mode, the bike wobbles in order to help kids develop their early-stage of motor skills and assist them in learning how to balance.
The design of the Spherovelo is simple, minimalistic and innovative. The company hopes to “produce fantastic pre school and first bikes that take a fun, systematic and safe approach to teaching children to ride. Our ambition is to get every child mobile, without using stabilizers.”
