The best scooters for kids
We’ve written about scooters many a time – how to pimp them, best scooters for kids, fab scooter accessories, new scooters on the market, etc but we love this new release by Micro Scooters. It’s the Mini Micro 3in1 Scooter Blue/Pink with Seat and O-Bar Handle. Genius. Continue reading…
It’s official this Summer my kids will be hitting the streets painting them red, blue, green, yellow and any other colour I can get my hands on.
We all know the the Micro Scooters are the best scooters in the West. So it comes as no surprise that there are now a plethora of very cool accessories so your kids can scoot with style.
There’s a cool new website in town, Scoot, offering all the latest scooter accessories including the simple but ingenious Scooter Hook, invented by Scoot’s founder, mum of 3, Claire Burley. No longer will you need to mutter “I’m not letting you bring your scooter out… EVER again” as you try to juggle a buggy, scooters and unruly children. The Scooter Hook attaches to your buggy’s handlebars and lets you easily transport your scooter when on the move. It carries both small and large scooters and you can attach up to 2 hooks per buggy. Sold exclusively at Scoot for just £7.49.
Other great products include the annoyingly loud but fantastically fun (for the child) Scooter Hooter for £4.99; Deck Lights – LED underbody scooter lights for £14.99; and the Lock ‘n Light, a nifty and discreet lock for your scooter which not only keeps your scooter safe, but it doubles up as a light so your child can be safe and be seen for £15.99.
To celebrate the launch of Scoot, you can get a scoot-astic 15% off scooter accessories throughout November by using the code FYP01 at checkout.
Always trust your instincts. Unfortunately, that’s not what I did when it came to buying my boys their scooters. Against my better judgment, I made the ill-fated decision to not spend a lot on their scooters (after all I was buying two of them) and instead opted for some cheaper plastic character scooters. It was heart-breaking (for my wallet) to then watch the boys struggle with those damn scooters (which are fairly clunky and the footing is raised quite far from the ground – relatively speaking – making it hard for little ones to ride). Fearing that they would never master the art of scootering, I finally succumbed and purchased the only scooter a child should own – a mini micro scooter.
They look great, they ride well, they are lightweight and portable and are really easy to use. The age on the box is for 3-5yrs but is probably suitable for any seasoned walker. They come in two standard colours – pink and blue – but for extra street/park cred and a little bit more dough you can choose from a range of “limited edition” colours – yellow, green and red.
As a consequence, the twins now have 4 scooters and my plan to save money didn’t quite work but at least there’s no arguing when their friends come round. Of course, every kid on the block now has one so remember to label yours clearly. Cool kids can now even pimp their ride by checking out Micro’s range of scooter acessories including cute little bags that fit neatly onto the side bars, frog strobe lights, funky ribbons, water bottles and bells
Check them out at Micro (£50 for standard blue or pink or £55 for the limited edition red, yellow or green)
