Why are Halfords kids bikes and scooters such great gifts?

In addition to the many benefits of buying a kids bike with Halfords, there are also many other reasons why they make the perfect gift, whether it be for Christmas or birthdays.

Here are some of the primary reasons why buying a bike for your child can be so rewarding:

  • Make memories

    Whether you’re teaching your child to ride a bike or cycling together as a family, buying a bike for your child can allow you to create wonderful family memories. Taking them to the local park can help build their confidence by practicing in a large, open space. If your child is already an experienced cyclist, why not try a more complex family trail such as a national park?

  • Learn valuable skills

    Riding a bike is an excellent way to help your child learn valuable life skills from building strength to gaining independence. Keeping up with their bike practice can also teach kids the importance of determination and not giving up.

  • Be more active

    Being amongst the great outdoors, breathing in fresh air is beneficial for our health both physically and mentally. Cycling is a brilliant way to help relieve anxiety and can help children let off steam, particularly after a challenging day at school. Riding a bike also helps boost muscle development and cardiovascular fitness, helping children keep healthy and active.

  • Excellent stocking fillers

    It’s not just the bike itself that makes the perfect gift. Kids bike accessories also make excellent stocking fillers, helping add some extra fun to your child’s cycling experience.

The best bike accessories for kids

At Halfords, we have an excellent range of kids bike accessories, including some of their favourite characters, guaranteed to put a smile on their faces.

We’ve compiled a list of our favourite kids bike accessories:

Bike baskets

Bike baskets are the perfect accessory to any children’s bike, adding a touch of fun and allowing your child to carry any belongings on their bike rides.

Dolly seats

Your child’s favourite toy can now accompany them on their cycling adventures with our dolly carrier seat. A seatbelt is included to ensure their precious doll or teddy remains secure throughout their journeys.

Number plates

For kids who love to customise, our bike number plate stickers are just the ticket. The stickers can easily be placed onto the handlebars, allowing your child to release their creativity and make the perfect personalised bike.

Bike bells

Bike bells are the ultimate accessory and make a perfect stocking filler for Christmas. Available in a variety of colours and characters from Peppa Pig to Batman bike bells, there is something to suit every child. As well as making your bike stand out, bells are useful for making others aware that you are riding nearby.

Bike helmets

Safety is the number one priority when your little ones are cycling, which is why we stock a wide variety of kids bike helmets. Whatever your child’s style, we have the right bike helmet to suit them from pink confetti to blue camo helmets.
