Our littlest tester prefers red bikes. All other bikes require some trickery to get him to ride, except for the blue Yedoo Too Too. Not red, not a problem, he will ride the Too Too without complaint. Over the years, this little man has become quite the balance bike connoisseur and so when he loves a bike, I know it’s a keeper. The Yedoo is lightweight, has Kenda air tires, Tektro V-pull brakes, and a 12″ minimum and 18″ maximum seat height. What’s not to love?
Weighing only 34 lb., he has always been on the lower percentiles for weight and height, so the lightweight frame was noticeable from the get-go. From mountains to the paved jungles, our little man had ridden his heart out on the Too Too and it has yet to disappoint.
Built on a high-tensile steel frame with weight capacity of 132 lb., the Too Too is built to last and is ready to take on whatever your little ones can dish out, yet it only weighs 8 lb. 4 oz (not 8.4 oz. as stated above). One of the lightest balance bike with air tires and a hand brake on the market, at 8.25 lb. the Too Too certainly stands out in the crowd.
To prevent oversteering and the brake cable from being twisted, the Yedoo Too Too is built with a turning limiter. While some turning limiters are too restrictive, the Too Too’s did not interfere with the handling of the bike.
Small and mighty, the V-pull brakes on the Too Too were easy for his small hands to activate. To prevent scratched legs, the braking mechanism does not protrude beyond the width of the seat (as shown in the next set of pictures) and the excess brake cable is easily tucked under the provided tab.
The padded, narrow saddle is toddler-sized to prevent fatigue and is non-porous (which comes in handy during potty-training accidents). While exposed, the bolts of the Yedoo Too Too are rounded to prevent scratches and a whimsical, protective handlebar pad help to prevent injuries during stumbles. For ease of use, the angled tube valves make inflating the tire a breeze and the high-quality seat post clamp holds the seat post securely in place.
Shipped standard with Kenda Kontact tires, the tread on the Too Too performed great on compact dirt trails, but we would recommend tires which more tread, such as the available Black Jack tires (available on an upgrade from WeeBikeShop) for true off-road performance.
When learning to ride a balance bike, weight can make a huge difference. After trying for several weeks with the heavier, 12 lb. Muna, our 2yo in 2T clothes tester was finally able to ride on his own with the Too Too. Easier to lift and more natural to balance, he accomplished more in an hour with the Too Too than weeks with the Muna.
Compared to additional balance bikes, the Yedoo Too Too is best for younger, lightweight toddlers who are expected to grow tall or for those who live in cold winters and want to ensure the bike will still fit come Spring. With a seat height ranging from 12″ to 18″, the Too Too is easily equip to fit a child from 24 months clothes to a small 4T. Compared to the FirstBIKE, the Too Too will not flex with older kids and does not require the additional purchase of a lowering kit to fit younger kids. While smaller than the Scoot the Too Too is also lighter, which makes it more suitable for younger kids.
Bottom Line: Quick, nimble and lightweight, the Yedoo Too Too is an exceptional buy for toddlers aged 18mo+. For older riders over 30 lb., we prefer the Scoot, but for younger or lighter-weight toddlers, the Too Too is the bike of choice.
