What our tester said:
My four-year-old grandson has been desperate for a scooter for a while now and this one certainly didn’t disappoint. It feels sturdy and well made, but it is extremely light, which is great if he gets tired and I need to carry it.
He was nervous at first but the three wheels on the scooter meant that he felt in control and only had a few tumbles before he got the hang of it. I’d recommend getting a helmet and knee and elbow pads just in case.
I was worried about how he’d steer the scooter, but he only has to tilt or lean it in the direction he wants to go in, which makes it simple - although he doesn’t always look where he’s going. He’s just getting the hang of the brake, which is a simple lever you touch with your back foot.
He absolutely loves whizzing around on it and it definitely means we can cover ground faster on walks. His little brother likes to have a go too, so I’m sure I’ll soon be buying another one. These scooters aren’t cheap, but they really are good quality – they’ll be playing on them for many years to come. I'm really impressed.
