Can Toddlers Ride Scooters?

Broadly speaking, any toddler that can stand, balance on their two feet and walk, can start learning how to ride a scooter. Riding a scooter is a great way for your child to learn balance and coordination skills. Most toddler scooters have two front wheels and one back wheel, as well as a lean-to-steer mechanism. Scooters like this present an easy and safe way for little ones to start learning.

Are Toddler Scooters Safe?

As a retailer, we ensure that all scooters listed on this site have safety at the forefront of production. Most toddler scooters are fitted with fast-action rear brakes that are easy to operate, allowing children to control their speed and steadily reach a stop. The three-wheel and lean-to-steer designs typically make toddler scooters much more stable than normal scooters. Therefore, the risk of falling is much lower. Toddler scooters are mostly built from lightweight materials such as plastic and aluminium so that they are easier to manoeuvre. This type of build reduces the risk of injury in case of a fall. However, children are prone to falls, bumps and scrapes, so we advise you to purchase a helmet and some pads

Active from an early age

It’s good to promote healthy, active hobbies to kids, and scooting offers exactly that. Getting on a scooter encourages kids to develop their co-ordination and motor skills from an early age, as well as helping with their balance. It’s also been said that scooting helps grow children’s independence and confidence, by allowing them to get out and learn new things for themselves.
