Award-winning design firm founder launches $100 wooden product.
A fresh wooden bike brand has entered the market: Kinderfeet.
The push bike was produced by award-winning Dutch designer Oscar Mulder and founder of package design firm Mulder Design.
Kinderfeets is a small training bicycle for children aged two and up, complete with foot-peg pedals, a low step through frame which places kids’ feet closer to the ground, eco-friendly materials, an adjustable seat and EVA airless tyres. It’s named after the Dutch word ‘kinderfiets’, which means ‘child’s bike’.
The bikes with a natural wooden finish are priced at $100 each in the US, while coloured variants retail for $110.
Mulder designed the bike after being disappointed by the push bikes currently available on the market, when looking to buy one for his son.
“"My son learned quickly and safely on the bike I designed, and he enjoyed doing it," he said.
"I wanted to share the same positive learning experience we had with other families and that is how Kinderfeets was born."
Kinderfeets bikes are available in a variety of colours and can be ordered from the Kinderfeets website. They are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and have won a number of awards such as The Toy Man’s Q2 Top Ten Award.
ToyNews has contacted Kinderfeet to find out if and when the bikes are heading to the UK.
