This ain’t your grandma’s scooter – assuming your grandmother even had a scooter! If she did, it’s a pretty safe bet it wasn’t nearly as cool as the lineup of Radio Flyer scooters available on the market these days.
Even the youngest kids can have a scooter of their very own, just like the big kids. Radio Flyer has scooters that are appropriate for kids 2 years old and up, providing a great way for your child to play and develop balance and coordination at the same time. The appropriately named My 1st Scooter is designed with 2 wheels in front for stability, an extra wide base for better balance, a tapered back for unimpeded kick path, and rear wheel cover for safety. You can choose from classic red or oh-so-feminine pink, for the daredevil who never forgets she’s a lady. There’s even a deluxe model with a cool retro look with a wood base. All versions are rated up to 50 pounds, are suitable for kids 2 to 5 years old, and provide years of use for your child.
For the slightly older child, ages 3 to 7 years, there’s the Little Red Scooter, designed to hold up to 70 pounds. With two wheels in back and a larger wheel in front for stability, durable steel construction, an adjustable handle that accommodates your child’s growth, and a retro wooden base, this scooter is perfect for the child who is just beginning to use a scooter. It’s durable enough to last through many years of use.
When kids are ready to graduate to the two-wheeler of scooters, let them step up to the EZ-Rider Scooter. Designed for ages 3 to 8 years and up to 80 pounds, this scooter sports extra wide wheels for better balance and a lower deck for increased stability. It’s also equipped with a foot brake for added control and safety. The handle bar adjusts to grow with your child. Pink, you say? Yes, indeed, it comes in classic red or pretty-in-pink.
For kids who want to make a statement, Radio Flyer offers the Style ‘N Ride for girls and the RFX With Custom Clipz for boys. Designed for ages 5 and up, and rated to hold up to 150 pounds, these scooters come with 10 custom clips and 70 decals to customize and personalize the look of your scooter. Kids will like the opportunity to make their scooters unique, and parents will appreciate the sturdy steel construction, wide deck and foot brake.
With practice and experience, kids will outgrow the models geared towards the younger ones and be ready for the more advanced models. For those who have reached this stage, two models are worth considering – the Pro Flyer Scooter and the Air Runner Scooter. Both are designed to hold 175 pounds and are appropriate for kids 5 years and older. Sturdy steel construction and precision ball bearings provide a smooth, fast ride even over rough surfaces.
Among the many scooters for kids, whether a 3 wheel scooter (or NOT a three wheel scooter!), the best are of course Radio Flyer. This brand is beloved that they even put out a “My first scooter” link in red or pink. My 1st Scooter is right up there with the EZ rider scoot about as the hallmark of the Radio Flyer brand.
