What is the best kids scooter for a beginner?
The best scooter for a beginner depends on the child's age, weight and riding ability. For younger children, we recommend 3-wheel scooters. A 3-wheel scooter provides more stability than a kids' 2-wheel scooter and can help to build your child's confidence.
For older children or those with more experience, a kids' 2-wheel scooter may be better because it is faster and more maneuverable.
Do kids need protective gear when using roller blades?
Yes, we recommend that all kids wear protective gear such as helmets, knee pads and elbow pads when skating. This will help to prevent any serious injuries if they fall over. Shop our kids' helmets here.
How much does a kids' scooter cost?
The cost of a kids' scooter varies depending on the type of scooter and the features it has. Features for kids' scooters may include a kickstand, a basket, or lights. A basic kids scooter without any features may cost around $60, while a more feature-rich kids scooter could cost upwards of $250.
When choosing a kids scooter, it is important to consider the child's age and skill level. For younger children, there are three-wheeled scooters that offer more stability. As children get older and more skilled, they may be ready for a two-wheeled scooter.
It is also important to make sure the scooter is the right size for the child. A too-big scooter can be difficult to control, while a too-small scooter may not provide enough support for the child. Most manufacturers have sizing charts that can help you choose the right scooter for your child.
Finally, consider how the scooter will be used. If it will mainly be ridden around the neighbourhood, a basic model may suffice. However, if the child plans to use the scooter for tricks or racing, a more durable model with better wheels and brakes may be necessary.
When it comes to cost, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. The best way to determine how much to spend on a kids' scooter is to consider the child's age, skill level, and intended use for the scooter. With so many different types and models available, there is sure to be a scooter that's perfect for your child - and your budget.
How do I know if my child is ready for a two-wheel scooter?
Your youngster is probably prepared to attempt a scooter with two wheels if they can stand on the scooter and balance without assistance. It is a good idea to consider factors like stroke width as the handlebars should generally be about the same width as their shoulders. When making this choice, you could also want to take into account their age, weight, and riding skills.
What safety gear do I need for my child?
When using kids' scooters, we advise all youngsters to wear a helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads. If they fall, this will protect them.
