The markets are full with a wide range of scooters for kids and selecting one according to your child’s age can be an entertaining but difficult task if you are buying for the first time. You will find a lot of changes in the new generation scooters which are not made using roller skates as they were made earlier. The modern scooters are made using new engineering techniques to provide children maximum fun. They are not only fun but provide your child an energetic physical activity as well.
There are six types of modern scooters to choose from:
Scooter with Three Wheels: Toddlers and younger kids enjoy running these scooters. These scooters come with two wheels in the front and a single wheel at the rear which helps toddlers to maintain the balance. These scooters do not run very fast thus the chances of a kid falling down are very less.
Scooters with Two Wheels: These scooters are best for older children because they can balance the scooters in a better way. Since these scooters are sturdy, they tend to bear more weight and run at higher speeds. Unlike toddlers’ scooters that are made up with plastic, these scooters are made using metal.
Electric Scooters: These scooters have an electric motor which runs on a battery that can be recharged very quickly. Compared to other scooters these are heavier ones and their wheels are also little rough to grip the pavements strongly. These scooters do not require a physical push but are a bit heavy making it slightly difficult to transport and store them. Electric scooters tend to be more expensive and cannot be used for stunts.
Stunt Scooters: Also known as trick scooter or pro-scooters, these scooters come with two wheels. Since these scooters are used to do stunts and tricks, they are built using high quality material. When a rider uses it on the skate-park ramps, their wide T-Bar handles are of great help as they provide abundant stability to the rider.
Off-Road Scooter: If your child wants to cross rough patches of land with lots of dirt and grass on it, then these scooters will be the best choice for your child. The strong wheels of the scooters are covered with tires and offer great speed along with a firm grip on the roads.
