Wishbone Bike Recycled Edition is an innovative, customizable learn-to-walk-&-ride system for children made from PCR waste. Suitable from 12 months to 6 years, Wishbone Bike RE is stable and lightweight for babies & toddlers, then grows with the child into an adjustable balance bike. Its patented RotafixTM frame design offers an integrated and adjustable frame and seat, is gas injection molded from 100% post-consumer recycled carpet and ships flat-packed.
