This is the second Raleigh Molly bike that we’ve had in our household. Our eldest had one first and when we got her a bigger bike we sold it to a friend – but then subsequently our youngest daughter wanted one too so we had to go and buy another one.
The Molly bike is made by Raleigh and comes in different sizes; the size being related to the diameter of the wheels (12,14 or 16 inch). The bike pictured is the 16inch model. It does come complete with stabilisers but as balancing has been mastered I’ve taken them off. It’s an easy job to do and all you need is a spanner.
The current Molly bike will look slightly different to ours as Raleigh give them a little update every now and again. But you’ll still get the Molly doll and rear carrier, furry saddle cover, furry handlebar bag and handlebar tassels. The tassels seem to come off after a year or two, at least they did for us. Another thing to note is that our stabilisers, which are have plastic wheels, suffered from wear and by the time our young rider had mastered her balance there wasn’t much life left in the stabilisers.
It’s a well made bike complete with a plastic full cover chain guard and proper tyres that’ll need a pump to blow them up. It has front and rear brakes, mudguards and the saddle is height adjustable giving you some growing room.
Continues to be a very popular bike for young girls. Don’t forget to buy a helmet too!
