As most of you know by now, Mutiny Kids are lucky to be on the Chad Valley play panel and over Christmas, Penny was sent this ride on police bike.
As with all Chad Valley toys, this encourages her to develop her imagination and she’s been a police officer many times a week for the last month or so. It’s not overly fast, so is suitable for younger children too, but at 4.5 and average height, she still isn’t too big for it. It is very easy to use, which helps give kids a sense of independence.
This is Penn on Christmas morning before she realised there was a REALLY fun police bike hiding behind her to discover!
Although she has mainly used it in the garden and around the house, its been taken out for a few spins around the block, as shown in our video.
It stays charged for a good while (no getting caught out on her adventures so far!) and charges easily with the plug and adaptor that come with it. The headlight lights when the bike is moving forward which Penny loves
To change the bike from moving forward to reverse, there is a simple switch, making it really easy for the child to do themselves.
To move, they just press on the foot pedal.
No police bike would be complete without a siren, and the accompanying blue light is without a doubt Penny’s favourite addition to this Chad Valley toy.
Although I probably wouldn’t buy this toy for Penny now that she is 4.5, as I feel she will only get maybe 6 months at most from it, it’s a brilliant value WOW toy for a younger child who would get a couple of years of play from it. Despite this, she is throughly enjoying playing cops and robber, or ‘police girl and bandit’ as she calls the game!
