Last month, we traversed the country (all the way to Birmingham!) and attended this years Cycle Show at the NEC with our friends at Kiddimoto.
It was fantastic to meet with cycle enthusiasts, potential customers and fellow exhibitors. As someone who loves a chat, Carrie was in her absolute element as she didn't stop chatting to customers for three whole days! She was particularly excited about Kiddimoto's new IKON helmet range and the buzz they created around the stand, 'Kiddimoto are known as the innovators of the balance bike world, and the new helmet range definitely backs this up. They're high tech, extremely functional and look pretty cool too!'
There was a lot of interest in Balance Buddies, and we can't wait to get our package into many more Early Years settings for children to enjoy.
Of course the presence of Balance Buddies has not been the only subject on peoples lips regarding the show. Geraint Thomas, only the third Brit to win the Tour de France had his trophy stolen. The trophy was loaned by Team Sky to bike manufacturer Pinarello to display at the show. We promise it has not made it's way to the BB office!
We also met some fantastic kids who not only loved racing about on our balance bikes, but also drew us some wonderful pictures of The Dinosaur That Pooped courtesy of our friends at Penguin Publishing.
A big Balance Buddies thanks to Christina and Kayley!
