I have been looking for the perfect bike basket for my five-year-old son, and when I discovered Nantucket Bike Basket Co.’s phenomenal kids bike baskets, I knew I had found the right place.
The selection of bike baskets is large, and when looking over the kids bike baskets catalog at Nantucket Bike Basket Co., I found myself thinking back to my own childhood. The kids bike baskets at the Nantucket Bike Basket Co. will send you back down memory lane, as they are every little boy and girl’s bike basket dream. There is a bike basket for every little boy and girl, whether they dream of princess pink or boyish blue. There are also kids bike baskets in natural colors, and they are the perfect sizes for kids bikes of any size. 
My five-year-old son had been wishing for a bike basket, so that he could carry his special toys when we go on our adventures. He soon discovered that his new bike basket  was the perfect fit for his football and his Lightning McQueen cars. When I needed help carrying the wet clothes after a fun afternoon at the splash area in the park, my son quickly offered his carrying services, and he was extremely proud to be able to help out.

My son is about to switch up to a bigger bike, but we are practicing getting rid of the training wheels first. I was excited to see that his new bike basket from Nantucket Bike Basket Co. was a perfect fit for both his preschool bike and his soon-to-be big boy bike.  
His little friends on the playground soon gathered around my son, his bike and his new blue kids bike basket. It was clear that there would soon be bike baskets on their wish lists as well.  
The bike baskets are high-quality, and the woven basket seems surprisingly sturdy. I immediately noticed that there were no beginning or end to the woven basket, and I have discovered that this is because the Nantucket Bike Basket Co. uses a special rolled rim weave technique. 
I love the bright and bold look of the Gull & Buoy Collection, but I am also a fan of the more natural colored bike baskets. The Nantucket Bike Co. Gull & Buoy Collection features bicycle baskets designed especially for young girls and boys

The thick leather straps that attaches the bike basket to the bike handle bar, are also built to last. The buckles on the leather straps are large, easy to adjust, and they make it easy to fit the basket onto any bike no matter the size of the bike handle bars.
