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.

  • 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

  • We got our first a razor scooter from Kmart/big w, one of them. It has three wheels one in front two in the back. That was four years ago, he now has the two wheeled one and my youngest has the three wheeler. It s awesome, it has survived two boys and still going strong. The three wheels are great to learn on before transitioning the the two wheeler.

  • I hope you managed to find a suitable scooter for your kid. Did you find an appropriate sized one? That would be my biggest concern, that they would all be so big
