Kick Scooters for Kids

Kick Scooters for Kids

2 and 3 Wheeled Scooters

What are Kick Scooters used for?

A kick scooter for children can be used for outdoor play, short trips with their parents to school or a friends house or days out with their family. Adult kick scooters can be used for short journeys such as the shops but are growing in popularity as a means of transport for commuting to and from work.

Saying that, I have a friend who was using a kick scooter for commuting to work and in a short time had to stop as it was effecting their leg and hip due to the repetition.

They can be used for longer journeys but this is where an electric kick scooter maybe more beneficial.

What is the difference between a scooter and a kick scooter?

There are different types of scooter. Road scooters are used as legal two wheeled powered vehicles and are required to abide by UK road laws including MOT and insurance.

A kick scooter can be 2 wheeled scooter is a fun way to enjoy the outdoors with the rider pushing the scooter along using one leg and kicking away from the ground so the scooter moves. They are so much fun and easier to ride than a bicycle.

There are 3 wheeled scooters but these are for very young children to use while they develop their balance and confidence.

Electric Scooter vs a Kick Scooter?

Finally, an electric kick scooter is the same as a kick scooter but once they reach a particular speed then the electric motor starts and assists the rider in keeping a constant speed without the need to keep kicking away with their foot to the ground.

With a kick scooter, it can be beneficial to pay that little bit extra so that you invest in a scooter that has significant suspension to make the ride comfortable but also to minimise the impact on your joints including foot, ankle, knee and hips.

Are Kick Scooters Good for Adults?

A kick scooter for adults is a good way to travel short journeys, the shorts, commute to work and easily help burn a few calories in the process as well as improve your cardiovascular fitness.

However, for longer journeys they could be useful but you could also fatigue. On a longer term scale, you could find you start to have issues with your ankle, leg, hip due to the repetitive motion of kicking the ground to move yourself and scooter.

If you are looking to use a kick scooter for short or long journeys then an electric scooter can be a much better option to take on the hard work. Of course, this would mean you would not need to use as much of your own body strength to get your scooter and yourself moving.

At the end of the day, a kick scooter for adults is a great idea but for short distances and an electric kick scooter for longer distances.

Our Review

The Ansio 3 wheel scooter is very similar to other 3 wheel kick scooters on the market in the UK, along with wheels that light up when children ride along.

The scooter comes in two parts, the desk and the handlebars. They simply slot into the hold by pressing down one of the buttons and it clicks into place. The connection between the handlebars pole and hole is then covered by the attached plastic cover that goes up and down and again, sits in place.

With the handlebars, the rubber does come off so can be replaced and the height adjusted with three different height options via also a button system. When a chose height is decided on, you close the bracket to give it extra stability and so the handlebars don’t suddenly drop down if the button is pressed by children.

Overall, a good scooter but the plastic wheelsOpens in a new tab. means they become worn down very quickly and even though we only used this over the weekend for review purposes it had that battered look within a short space of time.

Finally, my nephew found that lean to steer tricky as he is used to scooters where the handlebars turn so it may suit smaller children who are learning to control a scooter but if your children are over 5, then we would actually advise to look for a 2 wheel scooter with standard steering and leave the 2 wheel style scooters for under 5 years of age.

The TENBOOM Kick Scooter with LED Light Up Wheels

We have here the great looking TENBOOM scooter with its light up wheels, that light up brighter the faster you go.

This kick scooterOpens in a new tab. comes in a variety of colours which are Black, Blue, Deep Rose Red, Light Blue, Pink and Rose Red. We have chosen the colour black as you can see from our scooter review below.

Wheels that Light Up

The TENBOOM scooter is a two wheel scooter with adjustable height handlebars and light up wheels as mentioned above. These work via LED and light up using the motion sensor installed within the scooter that come on when moving and stop when you stop riding. Kids love the look of these lighting up when the scoot around their neighbourhood and look even better on days where there is a little more cloud so not as much sunshine.

As you would hope from a scooter, this is easy to fold down and light to carry for school runs, parks or just to load into your car for day trips out. It takes literally 3 seconds to fold this scooter and comprises of aluminium T-tube and the kickboard so a safe scootering experience for fun outdoors in the fresh air.

Safe and Secure Scootering

TENBOOM have designed a very strong scooter frame made of metal with the footbrake at the rear to provide a quick, easy and safe stop when required. The handlebars include soft foam grips so children can hold on safely and comfortably. This means they have full control over their scooter instead of an uncomfortable grip which could lead to adjusting their hands and be unsafe, so comfort is the key here.

Adjustable Height T-Bar

As this scooter is designed for ages of 4 to 7, the T-Bar Handlebars are height adjustable and has three different levels to choose from. However if you look at Amazon it does suggest this scooter is actually a good fit for children up to the age of 13.  This does mean you do not need to buy a new scooter to cater for children as they get older and can continue to have fun with this one for years to come.

Great Present for Children

No matter if you have children, grandchildren, niece, nephew or just good friends this kick scooter is a great gift for children of so many ages. They can ride this outdoors, receive fresh air, exercise and have tremendous fun and also grow their coordination and balance skills.

Why the Beleev 3 Wheel Scooter for Boys and Girls?

There are many life skills riding a 3 wheeles scooter can establish and grow. These include balance, coordination as well as motor and reflex skills. As the height is adjustable the Beleev kick scooter can be used for a wide age range, we did find it suited younger ages due to it being steered to turn rather than a standard handlebar steering system.

The height itself for the T bar spans from 23.4 to 30.3 inches and easy movable via the button to be pressed in the handlebar stem itself. As kids ride this, the wheels light up which aren’t very bright in sunlight but will show up better on a more chilled evening as the sun is going down but still light enough for outdoor play. The lights themselves do get brighter then faster the scooter is moving.

Beleev have included a deck which has very good grip and an anti-slip surface with the height being low to the ground and as above, use their bodyweight to turn rather than a handlebar that turns the wheel itself. The lean-to steer is aimed at children who go to preschool or kindergarten even though it is advertised up to the age of 9 which we do think is rather high and better for younger ages.

BELEEV Scooter for Kids, 3 Wheel Scooter for Toddlers with Steering Lock

The BELEEV scooterOpens in a new tab. comes in one of many colours which include Black, Blue, Purple, Rose Pink or Teal.

As with many other scooters for girls and boys we have reviewed at Simplyfun.co.uk, the handlebars are adjustable to suit children of different age. Talking of ages, this is designed to cater for ages from 3 to 8 years.

Features and Specifications

Fantastic Fun – This scooterOpens in a new tab. comes already assembled and ready to ride.

The faster the rider goes, the brighter the LED lights go with the Magnetic Core Wheels themselves looking amazing and totally stands out to children and adults nearby.

Magnetic Core LED Wheels – As we talked about above, the awesome looking LED wheels look amazing and light up as children ride this scooter and get brighter the faster they are going. Ride this at dusk and they look even more fun and stunning and completely stand out making this kick scooter the talk of their friends.

Easy to Ride – This uses lean-to-steer technology which is very popular with other 3 wheeled scootersOpens in a new tab. such as this one and many like it. It has an extra wide deck so children’s feet will not slip off and gives extra stability in balancing and control when turning the scooter. Additionally it has a locking and unlocking steering system which produces an excellent safe riding experience.

Smooth and Safe Riding – The wheels have been designed to be PU Extra Wide and run in conjunction to the fibreglass reinforced deck for their feet. This overall provides excellent shock absorption which in turn gives a very good smooth a stable ride. To reduce speed, the BELEEV scooter has a built in reinforced steel braking system which slows down and stops the scooter very quickly so as a parent you will have peace of mind children will stop right away. Along with the anti-slip deck, this scooter gives excellent stability so children hold their position while riding around indoors or out.

Easy to Carry around and Store Away – This isn’t a foldable scooterOpens in a new tab. but the handlebars are removable and an overall lightweight design. This means you can pull up the T-Bar and off the deck and tie it underneath for easy storage or carrying it from school, the park of a friend’s house. A Great space saver indeed.
