Age: 12 months to 5 years Features Silicon seat cover Made in New Zealand Helps development, learning and funABOUT WISHBONE DESIGN STUDIO The story of Wishbone Design Studio began in 2005 when Noah was one and Lulu was born.We were four bewildered Kiwis, living in New York City. Rich is from a small town in rural New Zealand. Not exactly a city boy. He practically lived in Central Park for two years - on a quest for space and sky. The first Wishbone Bike was born out of wanting to give the kids a taste of the childhood we had. You see, when we were little, the grass was long, the air was fresh and the folks weren't always watching. We ran where we liked, rode until dark and collapsed smiling at the end of a crazy day. Rich designed and built the first Wishbone Bike prototypes in our NY bathroom. Since then, he's moved on a bit. From the bathroom in New York, to a garage in Wellington, to the studio - which is actually just a groovy old shed squeezed between a bookbinder, a carpet seller and a windmill-maker two doors down. These days folk are buying our bike on both sides of the Atlantic, the Pacific - and the Equator! That makes us pretty happy. Happy Riding, Rich and Jen, Wellington, New Zealand
