Top 10 Best Selling Kids Bikes

Updated on December 3, 2012

Make buying kids bikes a little easier with a top 10 best selling list.

Kids have a better idea of what they want because they see friends with their new bikes and want one the same.

Television advertising too has a huge influence on the decision kids make.

Perhaps your child hasn't actually told you what kind of bike they would like, and it's been that many years since you last bought one that you really have no idea what one to go for, when you see such a vast array of choice in the shops.

This list features the top 10 best selling kids bikes on Amazon, that wonderful online retailer that sells to the public cheaper than any shop.

Have a look at the features of each bike, keeping in mind the age of the child you are buying for, and there is sure to be one here that is just perfect for the child you have in mind.

Strider PREbike Balance Running Bike

The 7th in the top 10 list of best selling kids bikes goes to the Strider PREbike Balance Running Bike which I'm not sure can be called a bike.

It is described as lightweight and easy for a small child to control, with adjustable seat and handlebars to accommodate a growing child.

ThePolaris Edge LX120 Kids Bike (12-Inch Wheels) is the number 9 best selling kids bike.
