Wishbone began in 2005 when a New Zealand family was living in New York City with their two young children. They desired to give their children a taste of the childhood freedom they experienced as children. The first Wishbone bike was designed in their New York City bathroom. Since then they have designed several Wishbone products that have been sold around the world. As a certified CarboNZero organization the Wishbone company aims for a high degree of sustainability in the materials they use, manufacturing, and in their day to day office. They desire to provide parents with a product that can be used for many years and then continue to be used when it is passed on to another child.
The Wishbone Flip makes a perfect first birthday present. It is a rocker and a ride-on toy in one. A beginning walker will also enjoy standing up and holding on to the handles and walking the Wishbone Flip around the room. You can transform it from a rocker to a ride-on toy in seconds without needing any tools. This sturdy wooden toy is made from birch plywood. Double bolt holes allow you to adjust the height of the toy for your growing child.
The Wishbone bike is available in two different varieties. The 3-in-1 Wishbone Bike allows you to create a 3 wheeled bike that can transform into a 2 wheeled bike when ready. The 3-in-1 bike can be used starting around the age of 1. At first your little one will walk the bike along and as she gets more practice she will begin to glide. When your child is around 2-3 years old you can take off the third wheel and make it into a two wheeled bike so your child can start practicing how to balance. Start with the 2-in-1 Wishbone Bike if your child is aged 2-3 or older. The Wishbone bikes can be used from around age 1 to age 5. When your child is 4 or 5 years old you can flip the frame to give the bike more height.
