DS2 is 2.3 and gets very frustrated when his old brother (6) rides his bike or scooter when we go out, eg. to school and to the park so I'd like to get DS2 something to ride. He already has a Scuttlebug but he isn't really interested in at the moment so I was thinking about a Mini Micro Scooter (which he keeps nicking off other children at the school gates) until I saw the G Bike which looks really good, and I know quite a few mums of 3 year olds who recommend that sort of thing but I don't know which one to go for.
the scooters are amazing. dd got hers when she was 2 & is now 3.3 & has used it literally every day. she must have done hundreds of miles on it. it broke through sheer overuse & the shop where i bought it had spares & fixed it - fabulous. she has a puky running bike too which she does use, but the scooter is smaller & lighter & better for me to carry when she has a strop....
My ds was given a mini micro scooter for his 3rd birthday and he loves it. He wants to go on it at every opportunity ... I would def recommend it. They are so light to carry if you get stuck with it as well.
My son has both - he is 2 and a half and has been able to use the scooter since he was 2 -it has made trips to the park so much more enjoyable for him. The g bike is really good for getting their balance and then it is easy to transfer them to riding a bike without the need for stabilisers. We got both of ours from a website called Grubby Knees.
