With a cute vintage feel, this Our Generation doll bicycle is a great gift for children and collectors alike. It has a metal frame to stand up to the rigors of play.
Whenever we are in Target, my daughters and I have to go browse their Our Generation doll selection. While I don’t much care for the dolls themselves, they have the cutest accessories. One of my daughter’s favorite American Girl doll accessory is this cute doll bike from Our Generation.
When I originally saw it in Target, I immediately had to pick one up for Miss S for Christmas because I figured it was going to be a popular gift that Christmas and would sell out fast. I was right! The Our Generation doll bike ended up being a hugely popular doll gift that year and stores sold out like lightning.
Target no longer sells this 18 inch doll bike in stores, but fortunately you can still find them online through Amazon.
In a hurry?
The Our Generation doll bicycle is a quality piece!
Unlike some of the other Our Generation accessories that are made from plastic, the bike frame is all metal. It is really quite a sturdy piece and very well made.
My girls are hard on their toys and this bike has stood up to rigorous play. Even after being dropped off our deck, this 18 inch doll bike has no visible damage – not even a scratch in the paint!
Cute features on the Our Generation doll bike
I just love the details on this bicycle. From the cute little bell and streamers on the handlebar to the flowery basket, this bike is just plain adorable.
It even has a little license plate on the back of the seat. So cute!
A great 18 inch doll bicycle for collectors
This piece is great for making a doll display scene as you will actually be able to pose your doll on it. There are straps on both the peddles and the handlebars to help hold your doll in place.
Although it is light enough for kids to handle, this doll bike has some weight to it due to the metal frame. The heavier construction means it won’t topple over like flimsier ones that are made of plastic. So it makes a great prop for displaying your doll.
A wallet-friendly bicycle for American Girl Dolls
American Girl has recently come out with a bicycle for Samantha’s collection, which is admittedly super cute. The color and construction on the American Girl piece is very similar to the Our Generation doll bicycle. However, I just can’t stomach the $115 price tag for the American Girl one. At a fraction of the cost of the AG doll bike, the Our Generation doll bike is much more wallet-friendly.
A lot of times you get what you pay for and the Our Generation doll accessories tend to be made all of plastic and not as sturdy of pieces when compare to similar accessories from American Girl. However, in the case of the Our Generation 18 inch doll bicycle, that is not the case. The Our Generation doll bicycle has an all metal frame and great attention to detail. Plus it is significantly lower priced than Samantha’s bicycle for American Girl dolls. This is one case where I would definitely recommend choosing Our Generation over American Girl.
Want this Our Generation 18 inch doll bike to give as a gift?
Would the Our Generation doll bicycle make a great gift for that special American Girl doll fan or collector in your life? Although Target is no longer selling the bike in stores, it is readily available on Amazon (and at a much lower price than I originally paid when I bought one in the store for my daughter.)
Don’t forget the 18 inch doll bicycle accessories!
If you are giving an Our Generation doll bike as a gift, you will want to make sure to get some accessories to go along with it – like a bike helmet, and maybe some knee and elbow pads. Including these accessories is a great way to reinforce bike safety with your child!
When I gave my youngest daughter her 18 inch doll bike, I included an AG doll helmet. It was a great way to help teach her the importance of wearing a helmet anytime she rode her bike. I found that after her doll started wearing a helmet when riding the bike, my daughter no longer complained about wearing her own helmet when we went on bike rides. Hey, whatever works right?!
I just love this doll bike helmet. It comes with cute little stickers that your child can use to decorate the helmet and give it a unique look. I wasn’t able to find sets of knee pads or elbow pads by themselves. However, if you want protective pads to include with the doll bike, they are available as part of other doll activity sets.
