Our Story

Green Whizz
Kes Reid | Founder of Whizz Kids & Joe

Hi, I’m Kes. As a parent, teacher, sports scientist and volunteer sports event organiser, we need to get our kids moving!

With the increased use of technology, children are entering primary school education without the fundamental motor skills necessary for healthy brain development.

This can lead to them having difficulty reading or writing across a page, gripping a pen or pencil, sitting upright at a desk or having the endurance to last a whole day at school.

I’m passionate about sourcing high quality products that develop co-ordination, balance, and improve sensory processing. Not to mention encouraging them outdoors and building a sense of independence. This gives your child the brain boost they need.

Hence, Whizz Kids Toys, a not for profit community interest company, was born! We’re focused on promoting the importance of gross motor skills.

It’s loads of fun, builds my sense of independence and improves my sensory proessing.  Helps develops balance and brain connections and builds my whole body strength.

I’ll become your kids new best friend and won’t gather dust in the garage. I like to stay in the family so am a great hand me down.

Spinning, Rocking & Rolling – The Movement Sense

We are all familiar with the 5 senses of sight, sound, hearing, smell and taste. But this 6th sense sometimes called The Movement Sense, is equally as important. It is vital that this system be developed within the early years of a child’s life as co-ordinated movement is fundamental for all life’s activities.
Hornit Airo 12" Balance Bike

Hornit Airo Balance Bike gets podium placing!

We’ve got hold of a racy hot chilli red Hornit Airo to see what we thought of the new kid on the block. My first impression was a really positive one. Straight out of the box, the only thing you needed to do was to straighten the handlebars with the allen key provided. No fiddly fixing of multiple components together.

Little Wheels Lockdown Charity Ride

During the summer months, I put together a little virtual charity event for our local riders in Exeter and East Devon. So many children had made massive progress during lockdown with their riding. Some had managed to master their balance bikes…

Exmouth Esplanade Ride

You can't beat a ride alongside the ocean blue. The sounds of the waves against the shore line, the squawking of seagulls, the fresh sea air. Plus a play on the gorgeously golden sands of Exmouth Beach before or after the ride. This route is a must for all budding riders!


Green Whizz
Bought my son a Wishbone bike from Whizz Kids Toys. Love the quality products will outlast all the other bikes we bought my first son. Wish we found this product earlier and it’s so great to be able to demo a bike so we could ‘try before we buy’.

Couldn’t be more delighted with our first Whizz Kids Toys purchase. The 3 in 1 bike is so well made, robust yet great to look at. As first time grandparents we think we’ve scored a few brownie points with our little one. Thank you so much for launching this range of toys to help our next generation develop healthy play habits and stronger motor skills.
