If there’s one mode of transport kids seem to love, it’s scooting. Whether it’s a three wheeler or two wheeler, and whether it’s a recreational scooter, stunt scooter or folding scooter, the fact is you’ll be hard pushed to find a child of any age who doesn’t enjoy one type or another.
No wonder there’s such a big market for scooters out there. So we’ve created a guide that will help you find the sturdiest, safest and most fun scooter for your child’s needs, whether it’s getting to school or hanging out at the local skate park. We’ve got all ages covered, from the Vtech 3 in 1 Zebra Scooter for tiny tots right up to the District Colourline V4 Series Custom Scooter, which is aimed at kids aged 12 plus.

For beginners, it’s hard to beat the Mini Micro T-Bar, which has recently launched some fantastic new colours to its already wide range. And for youngsters who are getting their first taste of skate parks, the MGV VX4 Team Complete is a brilliant buy. Not only will it stand the test of time, but it seems to be able to put up with any amount of aggressive riding.
