While we can't speak for a generation gone mad for Xbox-ing and Pokémon-going, we do know that we would have certainly been overjoyed to find any one of these bikes under our Christmas tree of childhood days gone-by.
Apollo Police Patrol kids bike —
It's a debate that will rage on forever more among children the world over — what's cooler: a fire engine or a police car?
While we won't weigh in on such heated issues (it's obviously a train anyway), we think that we can all agree that a bike styled after a police car is undoubtedly cool.
Cube Access WLS kids 29" hardtail —
While this bike may be a Cube, it certainly isn't for squares. Resplendent in its aubergine-like 'darkberry' hue, this 29" mountain bike would make an ideal gift for the not-so-little person in your life who's keen to dabble in shredding the gnar.
Cruzee Balance Bike —
If your little sproglet isn't old enough to have yet decided on what type of cycling they're most interested in, or actually hasn't mastered the whole pedalling thing yet, you may want to consider a balance bike.
We like the look of the Cruzee Balance Bike from Chain Reaction, and in no small part due to the selection of cool colours that are available — blingy gold or bust we say.
