Last year DS got a scooter, he hadn't asked for it, it was a last minute twitch fgrin He loved it, but very quickly said it wasn't the right type of scooter and after a few months it was broken. He is now saying that he'd like a 'real' scooter this year and I'm not really sure what one to go for. We have a skate park nearby so I think he'd like something that he can use there. But of course I am looking for a bargain! So any suggestions for something suitable and bargainous would be great!

My daughter loves this scooter. I find it is good quality. We changed the foot grip as it is of a firey devilish face.

Can be bought from argos too i think

That's the one he got last Christmas usernameavailable !

Maybe be he's just very heavy-footed but it broke after just a few months and he says he wasn't able to do stunts on it which is not a bad thing in my book Maybe we need something sturdier...

My 12 year old has this one and it's taken a battering with stunts at the skate park and is still going strong

My teenage DS is a skater and sees lots of scooter kids down at the skateparks where he rides. He says MGP is the make to have.

My 10 year old says something like this. It absolutely must not fold or have adjustable height handlebars apparently!

Thank you all! Clearly have to re-think my budget <fshock>

How about this razor I'd love to buy it for my ds but they don't deliver to ireland. It's more expensive on other sites

We got ds a mgp around that age. It's lasted 4 years of abuse, had new wheels, a respray, hand grips and new grip tape. The main structure is rock solid and won't break. If he's into scooters it's a case of buy cheap buy twice.

Definitely not folding or adjusting handle bars, it needs to be solid but light if it's for a skate park.
