How to choose the best scooter for your child
There are three main criteria to look at when you are choosing a new scooter. One way is to choose the best scooter by age. Another way is to choose the best scooter by style or type of scooter. For example, the best stunt scooter or the best dirt scooter. The last but by no means least is to choose a scooter by price. This will of course depend on your available budget.
Choosing the best scooter by the age of your child
The majority of scooters start at age 3 but it is possible to get a scooter for a 1 year old child. Most children will start off with 3 wheel scooters and then progress to 2 wheel scooters as they get older and more confident. When exactly this happens will depend on your child, how good their balance is and when you think they are ready. Generally speaking most children will have progressed to a two wheel scooter by the age of 5 but this is flexible. There are lots of three wheel scooters available but two of the most popular brands are the mini micro scooter and the zoom cruzer scooter. You can read our mini micro scooter v zoom cruzer scooter review for more information.
Most 5 or 6 year olds will have progressed to a two wheel scooter. If you are careful the scooter you buy at this age should last a few years. There are lots of scooters available for this age group but for more information read our review of best scooters for 5 and 6 year old children.
What type of scooter should I buy?
As we said earlier, children tend to start with 3 or 4 wheeled scooters and then move on to 2 wheeled scooters as they get older. When you are choosing a two wheeled scooter there are lots of different styles of scooter to choose from. Which one you buy will depend on what your child will be using their scooter for. For basic riding on roads or pavements you will just want a standard scooter. However, if your child wants to perform stunts or tricks then you will need to look at stunt scooters. If your child wants to ride their scooter off road or on rougher terrain you will want to look at dirt scooters or off road scooters. If storage is an issue you should have a look at folding scooters. We have written lots of reviews on the different types of scooters available to help make your selection easier.
