I am going to buy my 2 year old a scooter for Christmas but there are so many out there now I just can’t choose. Would love to hear from other Mums as to which they would recommend? Thanks, love your page.

  • My toddler has the Peppa Pig one – it has two wheels at the front and one at the back. It can only really go straight but it’s a bit more stable.

  • I would go for a sturdy 3wheeler. It doesn’t have to be a specific brand.

  • Three wheels is best until they learn to balance on it.
    Unless you have an older child with a scooter I would opt for a tricycle first. Pushing the pedals strengthens their leg muscles before they stand and balance on a scooter.
    If your child is going to use it on the footpath I suggest you put a bell on it and teach the child how and when to use it.

  • Cool! There really interesting comments on this!

  • There are these cool trikes now that convert into a bike or scooter as the child grows, learns and develope. They are brilliant. I’m considering one for my daughter ATM.

  • The micro scooters are awesome, highly recommend

  • I recommend Razor brand better than others.

  • My children have good old Razor scooters.

  • What did you end up getting? I saw one down the street that looked great – it had one wheel at the front, then two wheels at the back. Seemed like a easy one to use.

  • What scooter did you end up buying?

  • Kmart and Big W have the 3 wheeled scooters which are great, only around $15.

  • One that has 2 wheels at the front and you turn by putting pressure on the left or right wheel

  • Has your child mentioned what one they want. I would ask secretively

  • Hope you managed to find one. I guess you’d have to look at the age recommendation to see if it would be a suitable size for a 2 year old.

  • Razor scooters are great for kiddies
