At Skate Connection, we like to get our mini-mes started with scootering and skating as soon as they show an interest and ability for it. There are a whole host of benefits associated with getting your kids some wheels from an early age, such as improved balance and fitness, outdoors fun, motor skill development and a whole lot of fun.
If you are starting your tiny tot off early and looking to get some wheels, then you should seriously consider a 3 wheel scooter to start out with. Buying a first scooter for your kid can be a little overwhelming considering that you aren’t actually sure what they are capable of yet. We often get asked the following questions by parents:
When you buy a 3 wheel scooter, it’s best to keep in mind that every child is an individual and they develop at their own pace. So instead of going on age or physical size, it’s best to judge on the actual physical ability and motor skill development of your little one. In general, if your kid can walk without wobbling and falling over - they should be able to start riding a scooter, which is normally around 2 to 3 years old.
The most popular 3 wheel scooter for sale in our kid's range is the kick scooter with the lean-to-turn bars. It’s the simplest scooter for young toddlers to start off with because they don’t have to do a lot of balancing, the three wheels mean that the scooter is already balanced going forward. Your kid simply needs to lean in the direction they want to turn and voila!
These kinds of scooters are the perfect starter for kids between the ages of 3 to 7 and it teaches them to quickly understand how their shift of weight affects the turn of the scooter and helps them to build confidence quickly.
The main consideration when it comes to the size of 3 wheel scooter you buy is all about the wheels and the height of the bar.
Small wheeled scooters are generally much lighter and easier to ride, handle and turn, however, they can pick up some serious pace and so you should always be vigilant when your kid is riding.
Large wheel scooters are heavier and therefore a bit harder to push and steer and can take longer to break. Large wheels, however, make scooters more stable and better on rough surfaces. Also, your child will take a much longer time to outgrow the scooter.
It’s important to ensure that your kid’s scooter bars don’t sit directly in front of their face or neck; make sure that the bars are always lower than neck position for safety reasons.
These are just some of the things to consider if you are looking to buy your child a 3 wheel scooter online.
