Two Wheeling Tots’ Mission
Two Wheeling Tots is two moms (Natalie and Carrie) on a mission to help you find the best in bikes! Whether you’re looking for a balance bike, pedal bike, helmet, bike trailer, or child bike seat, we make it easy to get your kids (and you!) out riding on bikes (or in trailers or bike seats!) that they will love!
Kids’ bikes need to fit right, match a child’s riding style, and, of course still look cool! We aim to educate parents about kids’ bike products so you can make the best purchase decisions for your kids in as little time as possible. Basically, we’ve done all the product testing and other research so you don’t have to waste a ton of time doing the research yourself. You can also rest easy knowing that a parent like yourself has actually used these bikes, helmets, and trailers on actual, living, real kids!
That’s why our slogan is: Kids Ride. Moms Review. You Decide.
What Our Team Offers
Two Wheeling Tots fulfills its mission by:
Testing out bike products on actual kids
So many review sites these days just pull together quick lists from Amazon. Even legitimate review sites haven’t actually reviewed a large number of the products they recommend. Two Wheeling Tots has reviewed more bike products than we can even keep track of!
Not only do we test bikes and bike products, but we publish detailed reviews for you. Many other review sites give a pretty top level summary of the products they test. We take our time and get into the details so you can be as informed as you’d like to be.
Best of Lists
We understand that not everyone has the time or desire to get into the nitty gritty details of reviews. Time is precious, so we also compile lists of the best products in every category. These lists are fast and easy reference guides designed to save you time!
How to Choose Buying Guides
We have the most comprehensive buying guides available for Balance Bikes, Kids’ Bikes, Helmets, Bike Trailers, Trailer Cycles, and Child Bike Seats! After over 10 years of testing and research, we compiled and summarized all of the knowledge crowding our brains into easy-reference buying guides.
Looking for a balance bike but don’t know how to choose the right size? We’ve got you covered. In the market for a pedal bike but you aren’t sure if your child needs a 16″ bike or a 20″ bike? We have the answer! Confused by all of the different models of bike trailers and child bike seats out there? We’ll help you figure out what features actually matter and which ones you can ignore.
True, Authentic Content
We do NOT allow Sponsored Posts on our site. All of our reviews are completed by our own team members whom we personally know. We also do not accept payments for our reviews or allow for any paid links or content placement on our site.
Where We’ve Been Featured
Over the years we have also consulted with many well known kids biking companies and have been featured in several online publications. We love sharing our passion and knowledge about kids biking helping to educate others on the do and don’t of kids bikes.

Meet the Two Wheeling Tots Team
Two Wheeling Tots began a bit by accident. In 2009, Natalie bought a tricycle for her oldest daughter’s 2nd birthday. Unfortunately (or fortunately??), her daughter hated it! Natalie spent the next year searching for a better alternative and discovered something she’d never seen before – a balance bike! It was a huge hit for her daughter’s 3rd birthday and Natalie’s passion for balance bikes was born.
Already a mountain biking enthusiast, Two Wheeling Tots became a way for Natalie to share her passion for bikes and adventure with other parents and with her own kids. Since that time, Two Wheeling Tots has evolved along with Natalie’s family. With growing kids came pedal bike reviews and scooter reviews. And as new babies were born, bike trailers and child bike seats became daily life. Helmets, of course, were a necessary component to all of this.
Natalie is a sushi-loving, science nerd at heart and has a background in teaching and a love/hate relationship with home-improvement projects. She wishes she had learned to ride on a balance bike, but was born in the wrong generation. She currently resides in the mountain-biking paradise of Salt Lake City, UT with her mountain-biking husband and 3 kids who have been patient and willing bike testers since 2010.
Carrie met Natalie when they became college roommates the summer after freshman year. She thought Natalie’s love for N’Sync was a bit annoying, but did think she was really cool when she broke her hand while taking a mountain biking course for P.E. credit. Natalie thought Carrie studied too much and would have benefited from a mountain biking course.
18 years and a few N’Sync concerts later, Carrie joined Natalie in her Two Wheeling Tots quest to Get Out and Ride! She thinks having her best friend also be her boss is basically livin’ the dream. #ultimateworkbesties
Carrie has a background in marketing and an appetite for exploring. She lives in the DFW area with her road-riding husband and 4 kids, who eat lots of Texas BBQ and have been mastering the art of bike testing since 2016.
