    Default Three wheel scooters

    I am thinking of getting my DS a three wheel scooter for his 2nd birthday. Do you think 2 is too young for a 3 wheel scooter?

    Also, if your child has one, what kind is it, and do you recommend it?

    Definitely not too young! DS easily managed a scooter at that age. We have a maxi micro and love it! I have heard good things about Globber scooters too and I believe they are cheaper.

    3 wheel scooters are perfect for 2 year olds. We bought one for our 4th boy on his 2nd birthday and he was able to use it easily

    Not too young. My youngest has been riding a micro scooter. They are awesome. She's an expert now.

    We bought a micro mini at about 2 and it's been great. Although it's been relegated to lower preference status by the balance bike since about 2.5. Both scooters and balance bikes are great options at this age.

    Thanks everyone.

    I've now had a look at those brands mentioned too, thanks. They do look good, though a bit more expensive than i thought they'd be.

    Do your kids wear helmets when riding them? I hadn't even though of this until i saw some pictures of the scooters with helmets hanging on the handlebars.

    I have target 'peppa pig' scooters for my girls and they are great. Paid about $30 each from memory. 3 wheel and seem to be plenty strong and safe enough.

    Yep, our kids definitely wear helmets with them.

    We have a micro mini for DS. It has the 2 wheels at the front (we preferred this so DS would not bump his feet on back wheels).

    He also always wears a helmet. Same rules as using a bike here.

    I recently bought a 3-wheel scooter from Kmart recently for $20. Although it says for age 3+, it's been great for the 2 Yr old that I bought it for as it's stable.
