X-mart bikes = toys.
Bikes for kids = toys.

There's a kind of symmetry there. However, if you have junior doing centuries/brevets/commutes etc at a VERY young age, as opposed to the standard playing around that many kids may want to look into a more "advanced" bike.

Kids do, as stated, outgrow their bikes...and most kids bikes are also exceptionally simple machines.
Good night...and good luck
