The Kinderbike was designed in 2001 in Lenggries, Germany by Heinz Petzold for his grandson, Luke. The Laufrad ("run bike") was then introduced to the United States in 2005, the first of its kind in the US.
Kinderbikes have taught hundreds of thousands of children to balance, building their coordination and confidence.
