Scooting is the new running!
on 1 November 2011
So I bought this for my son for his 4th birthday. Having just started school in September, it seemed to be a growing fashion that the little kiddies would all come to school on one, and he was in awe of them. We decided to get it because I didn't want him to be the only child without one, and because of the things it could teach him; balancing, speed awareness, etc.
I'm going to be honest with you here - it does not say `Bank of England' across my forehead, and money is a bit tight for us just recently. We bought the one from Amazon purely because it was cheaper than anywhere else I had seen them so far. It was blue, it had the fold down mechanism, and it was what I was looking for.
The added extras were that it actually had 3 wheels instead of 2, providing that little bit extra balance for a first timer on a scooter. Also, the base of the scooter had flashing areas on it. So I ordered it.
The package arrived the next day, as predicted.
However it was only on his birthday, once he had opened it, that we realised how good the product actually was! The handle bars are so very easy to click and unclick into place, it makes folding it up and down a piece of cake! But don't be worried, it is still very sturdy and there is no chance of these coming out whilst your child is actually riding it.
The `flashing parts' turned out to be the whole of the bit that you stand on! It lights up very brightly, and looks fab when in motion!
My son took it to school on his birthday, and was oh, so proud of it! We have used it almost every day since then, and he has quickly learnt some of the things you can do on a scooter.
This is a simple, yet very brilliant present for a young boy with an imagination. It was only meant to be something cheap and cheerful, but has turned out to be one of the best things I ever bought him!!
