When I first invented the Crikey Bikey® harness, Rob Law found out about it and invited us to the Trunki HQ. While we were there he showed us how he invents new projects and asked us for some ideas on his new product which we kept a secret. It was amazing and we spent the whole day with him. Now he has launched it - the Jurni suitcase for grown ups! You can pre-order yours now and find out more on their website

We have had such a fantastic day! After our appearance on BBC Dragons' Den, Touker Suleyman very kindly offered us some 'Touker Time' and today we were able to take him up on the offer! Here we are with Touker. It was so cool sitting in his office right beside a canal with house boats floating by! He has given us lots of advice and helped us to decide which things to concentrate on first. He gave us the t-shirts as well!

Touker has offered us more Touker Time!

Just when we thought things couldn't get any better for us after receiving such a positive response to our pitch on BBC Dragons' Den. We have since received a very generous offer of help from Touker Suleyman! Such a fantastic opportunity for us. Thank you very much Touker we are very excited!

We have some very exciting news to share with you all! This Sunday (6th Sept) we will be appearing on hit TV show BBC Dragons' Den. The outcome of our pitch is top secret for now so tune in to watch us present our harness to the Dragon's at 8pm on BBC Two!

We stopped by the Cheltenham branch of Evans Cycles​ recently and met this really nice member of staff Jake. He told me that my harness is selling really well and made me smile when he said "that's cool, I've met a famous person"!

We love Parkers Ross on Wye​ and we are really happy they are stocking our harnesses - they made paint the exact colour we wanted for our bedrooms and they are amazing at helping us with our school projects! They helped Kia choose wheels to go on her wooden horse of Troy and they once helped her choose expanding foam to make a volcano for geography! They helped me choose dowl to make the ladder for my 'Danny the Champion of the World Caravan too!' Here I am with the owner who has just bought some Crikey Bikey® harnesses for his toy shop upstairs!



We've had an exciting week this week! We received a letter from Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government who we met at The Big Bang Fair. He has very kindly passed on one of our harnesses to Boris Johnson :) We also featured in Designing Magazine :)



We revisited Hay Festival on the weekend which was our fourth visit and the place where we realised Crikey Bikey® could become a business exactly one year ago! We loved it, there was so much to do and the cafés served amazing food and hot chocolate! Whilst there we met with reporters from The Telegraph who were keen to hear how much Crikey Bikey® has developed in just 12 months! Which resulted in them writing an article about us.

I was also excited to see Bear Grylls because I have read his book and seen lots of his TV programs. He was funny and interesting and I would love to do one of his survival challenges if he ever does one for children!

New stockist alert! Apex Outdoor has recently opened in the Forest of Dean - inside it's massive! It has equipment for lots of different outdoor sports, even for children. It also has a wood burning stove and a cafe with sofas! Richard and Matt are really friendly and they said they liked my Crikey Bikey® harness and they are now stocking it! If you are wondering where it is, it is opposite the petrol station by Five Acres on the Gloucester to Monmouth road.



Our first confirmed stockist, The Toy Box in Ross on Wye, is now fully stocked with Crikey Bikey® harnesses. I popped back to see my harnesses on the shelf and they were also part of the window display too. They look great!

Salt & Pepper Toy Shop in Monmouth is now stocking the Crikey Bikey® harness. Here we are delivering the goods in the week which was a very exciting event for us! More stockists will be announced soon........

When I heard my delivery was really going to arrive, I couldn’t wait to get home from school.  All day I kept thinking about it, wondering how many boxes there would 10974730 1530270353900495 300698027643722008 obe. The boxes actually said 'Crikey Bikey' on them and they reached the ceiling!  I climbed to the top of them and as I lay on the box at the top of the pile I felt really happy. 

I climbed down quickly and Kia and I opened one of the boxes.  As we pulled open the cardboard flaps, we saw a hundred harnesses just like I wanted them to look, all neatly wrapped in plastic and piled in the box.  A hundred Crikey Bikey® boys smiling up at me was an awesome sight!

Kia and I took one of the harnesses out and took it off the display card.  It seemed perfect, but we ran upstairs and tested it against our sample to check the size of it.  It was exactly right – we just looked at each other, smiled and giggled because we were so happy and relieved they had arrived and are perfect.

We have never been so excited to see a delivery man on our doorstep - thank you Brian. Our first batch of harnesses have arrived and now available to buy online.

We wonder who will be the first person to buy a Crikey Bikey harness?.........

We have had some great feedback from a parent that trialled the Crikey Bikey harness with her Daughter Emilia: 10506658 1525807924346738 4597641657871402023 o


"Like most successful innovations, the harness is a simple, yet very effective way of teaching your child to ride a bike.
Within 10 minutes of riding with the harness, I could see that Emilia had already gained a little more confidence and, I felt, had started to ‘find’ her natural balance on the bike.  
Emilia is a naturally cautious child and wouldn’t allow me to just push her on the bike and let go, and hope for the best  (like my son who seemed to love that process);  She wants to feel safe and secure.
I felt the harness allowed the child to feel safe and secure, whilst also giving them some independence to find their own balance and gain confidence.
Without doubt, I feel that this would significantly speed up the process in teaching some children to ride a bike"

This week the Crikey Bikey harness received its official trademark registration certificate. We get to use the ® symbol on packaging, etc. now which is great news!



We received the second sample this week which we tweaked slightly

A retailer in Ross on Wye has confirmed they will stock the harness in 2015
