“We love balance bikes. They have been an awesome way for my kids to learn how to ride.” Those are pretty much my exact words to anyone who sees my child riding the new Chillafish BMXie-RS balance bike and asks about it. The BMXie is a great learning bike designed for kids ages 2 to 5 years old.
Chillafish BMXie bikes are styled to look like mini-BMX bikes, which I think is super cute and the kids think is super cool. We have partnered with Chillafish to tell you about the new Chillafish BMXie-RS balance bike and how you can enter to win a BMXie-RS balance bike.
By now, you may have seen little kids riding “balance bikes,” which are bikes without pedals. Two of my children learned how to ride a bike with a Chillafish BMXie. The design helps kids learn balance and steering skills. Kids feel secure while they learn to ride, because their feet can easily plant on the ground at any time.
Because of our experience with balance bikes, I know you really can start kids out young on a balance bike. My youngest son wasn’t quite 2 years old when we got him one. He started out walking his bike for hours. By the time he was 3 years old, he was running his bike. And then one day, the whole “lift up your feet and glide” thing suddenly kicked in and we had a toddler who could legitimately ride his balance bike.
Of course, balance bike riding learning curves are different for all kids, depending on age, size and ability. I have seen 3-year-olds catch on to riding a balance bike within a few days. No matter what, I have seen that balance bikes are a great way to encourage outdoor active play time. Kids love to walk/ride their bikes.
My son is 5 years old now and still loves to run and glide on a balance bike – although he has nearly outgrown it. Nowadays, he can ride a pedal bike, but the Chillafish BMXie-RS balance bike is still getting a lot of ride time this summer. It’s actually pretty normal for balance bikes to be favorite toys even after kids know how to ride pedal bikes.
We really like the new special kind of BMXie tires on the BMXie-RS balance bike. The outer rubber layer makes them like rubber tires. But the cool thing about the tires is that you don’t need to inflate them with a pump. Airless RubberSkin tires give kids a great grip, and the tires’ foam core cannot be punctured!

My son liked that he was able to pick a decal from the included set to customize his bike’s front number plate. The bike itself is easy for parents to assemble in about 3 steps. The only tool you need (an Allen wrench for the screws) is included in the box with the Chillafish bike. I put the BMXie-RS bike together by myself in less than 5 minutes – it’s really that simple.
Another great thing about Chillafish Balance Bikes is the durability. They hold up to years of ride and play time. Chillafish BMXie-RS Balance Bikes retail for $89.99 and are available in a variety of cool colors including red, blue, green, yellow and pink.
