The Kiddimoto Story
Kiddimoto is the UK’s original balance bike company. We produce a wide range of award-winning balance bikes and matching accessories from our headquarters in rural Somerset. We’ve grown from a tiny one-man-show to a successful global operation with a host of awards. Read our story below…
THE FIRST KIDDIMOTO WAS MADE
Kiddimoto was born after founder Simon Booth built a wooden prototype of a balance bike in his flat in Axbridge, Somerset.
THE FIRST BIKES OFF THE PRODUCTION LINE
Production began in earnest at a workshop in Cheddar, where the Superbike and Scrambler became the first bikes off the Kiddimoto production line.
KIDDIMOTO OFFICIALLY ONE OF A KIND
The first of a string of accolades came with the prestigious Hamleys One of a Kind toy of the year award.
ENTER THE DRAGON
Simon made an appearance on the BBC’s popular Dragons’ Den programme. After a gruelling interrogation, he left with investment offers from two Dragons!
With business booming, the Westbury warehouse was expanded in order to keep up with demand from the UK and abroad.
