“Banwood creates contemporary designs with a touch of mid-century charm. Influenced by Scandinavian design, the keywords throughout the design process are simplicity, minimalism and functionality. Banwood makes the best balance bikes, bikes pedal rides and tricycles for toddlers We love the vintage, simplistic design of the Trike.
As one of the most stylish tricycles on the market, it ticks all the boxes for your little one’s first wheels. With a vintage design, it comes with a removable push handle to help your little one get started. The handles are vegan leather, easy to wipe clean and the pedals and seat are oak wood with soft padding for a comfortable ride. These tricycles are hugely popular and are flying off the shelves when they come back in stock at Scandibørn, so get to it fast!”

It’s one of the first brands we have stocked at Scandibørn and the one I used while pregnant. It’s a game changer when it comes to pregnancy pillows. Guaranteed for a better night’s sleep.
