Everything You Need To Know When Buying a Scooter for Your Kids

If you are one of those dads that when he notices something cool wants to buy it imminently so their kids experience something awesome, trendy and be regarded as the cool kids? Well, in fact, I am one of those dads, who sometimes buys a cool toy even for himself! I was having a walk in the park, when I saw a couple of kids riding scooters and in my head I was like OMG, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

The problem is my kids are quite a chip off the old block – tall and big boned (te-he-he). I am a google person and I always google everything, that means I research until I have all the needed facts, before I make a purchase decision. That being said, I put the facts on a document and then I share it with you – the readers and the internet where people want everything instantly to be served on their plate – and the pleasure is all mine! * BOWS * From my experience and research it is a great pleasure to present to you everything you need to know when buying scooters for big kids or small ones.

  • Wheels

I have learned that when it comes to the wheel diameter the standard size is between 100mm/110mm and you can find them in any shop. This types of wheels are compatible when your kids are small and not so tall. If you want buy scooters for big kids like I did then you should pick wheels that are built with better durability and bigger than 110mm (and even your dog can ride it!). Nevertheless, different size of wheels means they offer various functions. Wheels that are bigger than 120 or more with them you can better stun and can take a lot of weight (tested by me personally, sometimes we are all kids inside!). Wheels with smaller diameters are best for doing tricks and offers you a lot of manoeuvrability. Usually, the wheels are made out of polyurethane that is quality durable or by PVC or plastic but do not offer the same durability as the polyurethane ones.

  • Bearings

One thing you should check out is the ABEC rating that refers the bearings. When the ratings are higher it means a higher quality of the bearing. They usually range from ABEC 1 to 5. So if you want to choose the highest quality scooter look out for ABEC – 5.

  • Folding Mechanism

The Folding mechanism is a great way for us parents to pick up the scooters and carry it when they are out in the park or somewhere else. When they are all folded they are so easy to carry. For example on our family picnic the kids got so tired after we had a couple laps around the park the got tired and I folded them back and carried them without any problem.

  • Weight of the Scooter

A lighter scooter is more suitable for younger kids but if your child is bigger then they will need to handle a heavier one. When they are lighter they are easier like I mention before, but when your kids are bigger well they will carry it themselves. The heavier the scooter will give your more maximum weight capacity. If your kids want to make stuns then they need to be heavier so they will be durable enough to take the impact of those tricks and stunts.

  • Handlebar Height

To have the best comfort and safety choose a handlebar that is on the same level as the waist-high of your child. When they are riding their scooters, if the handlebar is too high there is no control of the scooter, or if it is too low they will feel uncomfortable and there will be back pain! Just look at the raccoon, he picked the wrong one!

  • Conclusion

There you have it, everything you need to know before you buy a scooter for your kid! There is no greater gift in life than your children, and providing them scooters so they enjoy it, even more, there is nothing better.
