For toddlers this season, which scooters rank the best?
|My First Scooter @ Amazon|
A tried and true company, Radio Flyer is dedicated to reinventing simple long-time ideas with safer features for smaller children (such is the case here). This scooter has a wider base and 2 front training wheels for added stability - a must-have for kids who are just starting out. The tapered base is thinner towards the back wheel for plenty of room to practice a maneuvering kick, and the whole thing is steered with easy-grip handlebars. Available in a multitude of colors for girls and boys, this scooter is 100% assembled straight from the box and folds for easier storage after playtime is over.
|Lil' Kick Scooters @ Amazon|
Built to be stable and comfortable with a smooth ride, this scooter is decked out in all-over pink or light blue to meet the tastes of both little girls and boys. A three-wheel design offers optimum support while handle bar grips make it easier to hang on when the scooter is in motion. The deck is lower to the ground than a traditional scooter, which means your pride and joy can learn without taking too many tumbles. The frame is welded steel; however, all-encompassing padding provides a sturdy and safer platform (less scrapes and bruises!).
Side note: With any scooter, whether it be for a child or a teenager, the right safety equipment is important. Make sure your child is equipped with a helmet and pads for secure riding - whether they're going up and down the driveway, or a quick ride to the corner store.
