For Wishbone founders Richard Latham and Jennifer McIver, childhood is a time of magic and discovery. The couple, who are originally from New Zealand, moved to New York in 2005 with their two young children, Noah and Lulu. Inspired by a love of nature and adventure, Rich designed the first Wishbone Bike in the family’s New York bathroom, wanting nothing more than to give his kids a taste of the childhood he and Jen had. From that small bathroom in New York, to a garage in their hometown of Wellington, NZ to their own studio, Wishbone has become a world leader in children’s bikes, and it’s easy to see why. Their innovative design, which sees them convert from a trike to a balance bike, is a winner with both parents and children. Beautifully designed and sustainably produced using recycled materials such as carpets, the bikes are sought after all over the world.
Just like the wooden Wishbone Bike, the Recycled Edition converts from push-trike to balance bike and from small to tall in seconds. It’s made from 100% recycled plastic for maximum durability and has an innovative new frame system called rotafixTM for the perfect fit. Why we love it: Wishbone uses pre-loved, residential carpet collected from home-owners in the United States to make the frame.
