“The inspiration for my design came from my experience building in my Poppa’s workshop as a kid. I decided I wanted the outcome to be something the child could build with a parent or caregiver as a relationship building experience and then use and be proud of.”
The bike is designed to be received flat pack and constructed using basic tools. It transforms using the same pieces, so that the building experience extends past the initial construction. It can grow from a balance bike to trike and then scooter as the child grows.
“Through the BOU Bike, children can own their experience of making, creating a fun ride-on product relevant to them.”
