Once your child is accustomed to balancing on wheels, a scooter is a fun way to level up their riding experience. Here’s how to find the right one for your little zoomer.
Toddlers aren’t yet able to balance a two-wheeled scooter. For the 2–4 age group, look for one with a three-wheel deck for added stability. A telescoping handlebar adjusts to accommodate even the youngest riders and keep them riding until they’re big enough to upgrade.
A scooter built with aluminum is lightweight for super-fast speeds, but still durable enough to stand up to years of use. A helpful added feature for kids who like to head to school or playtime on their scooter is a fold-up handlebar for easy stowing when not in use.
An electric scooter makes a great choice for an older child who’s looking for a quick, easy way to get around town or meet up with friends. Look for hand brakes and a rechargeable battery to ensure your big kid can slow down and get going when they need to.
