My grandson was always complaining that no one moved out of the way when he was riding his bike on the road, we live in a rural area so it's safe for him to ride outside as there's only the odd tractor coming past but my grandson insisted that the dogs and other kids on the row had to be shouted at and his "Get out the way!" just wasn't good enough and he needed a horn for his bike.
This made me laugh as he's very particualr when he comes to ask me for something as he always has a good reason why he really needs something and if his mum won't fork out for it he then tries me, as he knows I'm a soft touch, but only at his mum's approval as I don't buy anything if she has really said no and doesn't want him to have something for a reason.
So, as he really needed a horn for his bike and we okayed it with mum, I looked online to try and find one as he insited it had to be a horn and not a bell.
I found a bike horn that is made by Tobar and it is a metal horn that fits on the handle bars of a child's bike. It cost me £4.25 and I had to pay £2.50 postage to get it delivered to my house which took five days.
Once we had the bike horn I had to get someone to fit it as I'm not too good with spanners or screwdrivers, grandad kindly stepped in to do the mechanics and the horn fitted onto the handle bar and had to be screwed tightly so that it didn't move or slip round.
The horn reminded me of the kind you see the clowns using at the circus and the sound really was a classic one the same as you'd imagine the horn to sound at the circus but not as loud.
You have to squash the rubber bubble at the end of the horn to make it honk which my grandson thought was great, eight year olds find the funniest thigs amusing.
The horn is 8 and a half inches long and so you have to place it in the right place on the handle bar so that it doesn't stick out to far, the screw adjustment helps it to stay in place and the horn is ready to be honked once it's in place.
This is suitable for children over five and they do find it fun to play with, my grandson was honking the horn everytime he came near the house and shouting "Can you hear me ? "
He has had the horn now for about six weeks and is still playing with it although he doesn't honk the horn as much as when he first got it, thank goodness but the novelty hasn't worn off.
My grandaughter however doesn't seem to be interested in it as she has a little bell on her bike and seems happy enough with it so I think it's one of them children's toys that not all the rage but just for any child that takes an interest in them.
Value for money wise it's been fun watching my grandson play out on his bike and he still enjoys the horn so it's worth the price I paid. It has had a few scuffs over the weeks though as my grandson has the habit of skidding to the door on his bike them just jumping off it and dropping the bike on the floor, so the horn has had a few bashes during the weeks, but it still honks so has turned out to be more durable than I had thought it might be.
I'd be happy to recommend this to you if you can handle the noise.
A proper old fashioned bike horn with long metal trumpet and rubber bulb. The screw-on attachment fits onto handlebars. Makes a classic honking sound, certainly loud enough for other road users to hear!
