ZumZum is a new type of balance bike made for kids as young as 18 months. The bike has no pedals and was designed for kids to attain better balance and coordination. It features natural suspension, which provides for stability while kids are riding it.
The bike also has an adjustable height, so parents can tweak its size as kids grow. The tires are made out of a non-marking rubber material, so it can be ridden on any surface indoors or outdoors. The steering wheel also has a built-in NFC passport chip that allows people to see the information about the owner and warranty on a smartphone using the ZumZum Bikes mobile app.
Kickstarter donations range from $5 to $349 and prizes include 1 or 2 ZumZum bikes at a special price. If the Kickstarter campaign reaches its first stretch goal of $100,000, then the company will include an attachable holding bag and a stand to place the bike; if it reaches $150,000, then the bike will be available in multiple colors; and if it reaches $200,000, then a ZumZum mobile biking game will be added.
