EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Cycle in style with the Light My Bike Basket, a crafting kit that lets kids decorate a pink-and-white bike basket with felt flowers and a string of lights. The kit includes the bike basket, an LED light strand, felt flower shapes, a needle and threader, floss, pipe cleaners, beads, zip ties, and instructions. Start by layering the felt pieces however you want to create 12 flowers, and then pick nine of those flowers to add to the string of lights. You'll thread the light through the flowers, secure with clear beads and pipe cleaners, and then push each flower on the light string through the weave of the basket. Use the pipe cleaners to also attach the additional flowers. Then use the zip ties to attach the basket to your bike's handlebars. And whenever you ride, just press the button on the light string's battery pack to turn on the lights and illuminate your flowers.

Is It Fun?
This is going to be a time-consuming project, but for kids who like crafting and riding their bikes, the time and effort will be well worth it. It adds a nice decoration to any bike while also offering functional storage space so kids can cart around a beverage, a toy, or anything else they might need while they ride.
Who It’s For
The Light My Bike Basket is for kids ages 7 and up who like riding bikes.
What To Be Aware Of

An adult should supervise the installation of the bike lights and basket so that it doesn't interfere with the bike's wheels or brake system.

This requires two AA batteries, which are not included.

The bike basket measures 9.25 inches by six inches by four inches.

The light string is meant for decoration only and does not function as a flashlight or nightlight when riding in the dark.

A bike is not included.
