Our story begins back in 2008 when we were shopping for a Christmas present for our two-year-old. We were looking for a kids bike although had no idea what we should get. At the time we hadn’t even heard of balance bikes, only pedal bikes with training wheels for kids around that age. We by luck ended up buying a wooden balance bike which looking back now are very glad we did.
He started riding straight away at the local bike track up the road from us and in no time was racing around the track. The bike kept him active for hours with a smile on his face from ear to ear. Little did we know that it also fast tracked the skills he needed to ride a big kids bike. So around 5 years old he started riding a BMX and zooming around the local tracks. The bonus was we were also able to pass the balance down to his younger brother who also took to it like a duck to water.
So we wanted to create our own style of kids bikes for kids to enjoy and base it on our experience. Hence the birth of Kidz Factory and the Little Kruzers range of wooden balance bikes.
