I’m a huge fan of toys that get my kids outdoors and moving their bodies. With so many high tech gadgets commanding their attention, I find that it’s getting harder and harder to convince the kids to play outside.
But recently we had the opportunity to test out the Rockboard Scooter. And let me tell you, it was a struggle to get them into the house when it was time for dinner!
My eight year old all the way up to my soon to be eighteen year old loved it. Most scooters are made for a narrow age range, but the Rockboard Scooter is made for kids eight years of age all the way up to a kid/adult that weighs 200lbs.
The thing that makes the Rockboard Scooter different from other scooters is the rocking propulsion. Kids motor around by rocking back and forth on the deck, which is not only fun, but a good workout too!
The scooter itself is well constructed and quite sturdy. I like that it has a hand brake. With the ability to reach ten miles per hour, that hand brake could come in handy.
Another nice feature is that the Rockboard Scooter has a kickstand, which eliminates the scooter being left on the ground. And it’s fully collapsible for storage.
While all four of my kids had no problem riding the scooter, I found that my littlest one had a difficult time with the rocking motion. But then again, she is tiny and doesn’t have a lot of body mass to work with.
My other three had no problems figuring it out and were zooming around in no time. With my eldest heading off to college next year, I think this scooter would be just perfect for him to zip around campus from class to class on. No fuels costs and some extra exercise. A good way to combat the freshmen fifteen!
My son Michael made a short video of all the kids zipping around on the scooter. Clearly, a good time was had by all!
