Getting a Push Kick Scooter

Kick scooters are very popular with and children all over the world.

They are an easy and effective way to get around, as well as having health benefits

These are very simple pieces of equipment. Most have two wheels, though other models have more.

One wheel is situated in the front and one is situated in the back. A long piece of metal connects the two and also acts as a standing piece.

You simply place one foot on the scooter and use your other foot to push off and keep propelling yourself.

If you get enough speed, you can usually put both feet on the scooter and ride for a while before you slow down again.

Benefits of Using a Scooter

Because scooters require physical movement, your child will get exercise. The benefits of exercise are all pretty well known like reducing childhood obesity, strengthening lungs and heart, as well as building bone and muscle structure, and strengthening the immune system.

They are often made to fold down for easier portability.

Kick scooters can often be fixed with easy tools you can find around the house. The parts are pretty small but are easy to find out a local hardware or grocery store.

These are great ways to get around in cities with crowded sidewalks. Because of their slim design, you can easily maneuver around people.

Kinds of Kick Scooters

Two wheels scooters are the most common and often the most affordable. These usually have good speed and are easy to carry around since they are often made to be folded down.

Three wheel kick scooters usually have either two wheels on the back and one in the front, or vice versa.

Having two wheels in the back gives you a lot more stability and speed so these make good scooters of for traveling longer distances.

Having two wheels in the front gives you a lot more control and maneuverability. These are often used for those that like to do tricks.

Four wheeled kick scooters give you the most stable base yet are still quite maneuverable. They have wider bases but they are often much heavier and are not as easy to travel with.

Things to Consider While Shopping for a Children's Scooter

The first thing I suggest keeping in mind is the weight of the scooter you are considering. Most scooters made for kids are made to be much lighter so they can be easier to carry.

The handlebar is a should also be adjustable for a more comfortable ride. Having better posture while using your kick scooter will keep your back from hurting unnecessarily.

Check to see if it can be folded up for easier transport and storage.

Some scooters do require some assembly so make sure to note that while shopping.

Each scooter has a maximum weight limit, so be sure to know how much your child weighs and anticipate how long you would like him to use the scooter, then consider getting him one that will hold his weight for a few years.

Most scooters will run you around $50.00 to $200 and up, depending on the kind you buy. Though there are many scooters for children that are more affordable around $20.00.

Keep in mind that you get what you pay for so you might want to be willing to invest a little bit more money.

Top Features in Kick Scooters for Kids


Once you have decided how many wheels you would like on your kicks scooter, take a look at the size of the wheels.

Standard wheels are usually around 100 mm and are made of polyurethane. These give moderate speeds and a decently smooth ride.

Tricks can be performed with these because they are smaller and will not get in the way. Large wheels are measured up to 180 mm and often give the smoothest ride because they pass over cracks and bumps more easily.

These are typically made of a spoked metal wheel that is covered by a thin layer of polyurethane.

However, these wheels are not made for doing tricks because of how large they are. Keep in mind that the larger the wheels, the slower the speeds.


The deck is the part you stand on. Some are as small as 22 inches, and others are as wide as 36 inches.

If your child is exceptionally nervous on a scooter, consider getting her a bigger deck. Many of these come with some kind of surface on the top of the deck for a better grip and traction.


As mentioned earlier, I suggest finding handlebars that can be adjusted. You will find a wide range in length of handlebars as well.

There are some that are as low as 22 inches, and others that go up to 36 inches. Those that adjust simply have a quick release clamp ring or push pin adjustments that are easy to use.


Take a look to see how the brake works. Some scooters have hand brakes which might be easier for children, though others have rear friction brakes.

      I think that scooters are a great investment. I have kids and they ride their scooters more than anything else. They are also a lot less expensive than other things like bikes.
