Cons:will need to replace wheels from wear!

The Bottom Line: Scooters are fun!


My son has Autism and has a hard time riding his bike, which we are still working on. But, we wanted him to be able to play outside and be with his friend who lives down the street (who is older) who plays outside on a skateboard a lot. So, when he was 7 years old we got him the Grow-Ped Go-Ped scooter which is still adored and coveted by all the neighborhood kids. The Go-Ped scooter has retro styling with wood accents, bigger wheels and a wide board. It was also very expensive at over $100 (so worth it!). After about a year with it, my son started eyeing up his friend down the street's Razor Scooter and braved giving it a try. Where in the past he had a hard time with the narrow footboard and small wheels, he did great with it. But, since he already had his Go-Ped scooter, I didn't make any plans on buying one.

For his 8th birthday, my in-laws bought him one - after I had shared that he was still struggling with bike-riding.  I guess they only heard part of the conversation and missed that he already had a scooter. My son was excited to receive it because it was just like his friend down the street had, except it had green wheels and handlegrips - my son's favorite color. You can get this in all sorts of accent or tubing colors, and there are different sizes as well. The model we have is the "A" which is "the original model".

This scooter is suggested for kids 5 and up though a coordinated 4 year old could also use this. (My 4 year old is not). The scooter has an adjustable handlebar that you can raise or lower and it goes up to 34".  The upper weight limit is 143 pounds, and it is made of aircraft aluminum so it is pretty sturdy. I can say that people who weigh more than that have taken it for a quick spin without any issues but this isn't something I would suggest make a habit of doing. Plus, the kids get mad when you steal their rides!! My son loves to ride this kick scooter and is impressive at how much speed he can actually get up on this with a few pushes/kicks from one foot. His feet are still pretty small so he manages to get both feet up on the board somehow.

When not in use, this scooter folds up very small for storage or taking it with you in the car (it can go under the seat!) 23.75 x 4 x 7.25 inches. Also, it only weighs 6 pounds so it is super light yet sturdy.
With a lot of use, you will need to replace your wheels & bearings. This is not difficult and the wheels/bearings are sold for about $10 a pair.

My 9 year old loves his Razor Scooter and in nice weather zips around on it outdoors, has a blast and gets good exercise. It gets him from Point A (our house) to Point B (his friends house down the street) pretty darn quick using nothing but Kid-power. I'm sure when he outgrows this, it will still be in great shape and I can just buy a different color wheels for it to make it a bit more girly to my daughter's liking. 

We love our Razor Scooter!

Green means Go!

****The use of a helmet when riding this scooter is a must! We have the Razor Multi-Sport helmet and love it. ****
