    I know the micro scooters are expensive but no other scooter compares. My kids have tried them all and the others just get left around to gather dust and grow rust. My eldest daughter got her first micro scooter on her 3rd birthday and it lasted over 3 years and even then it was the plastic that snapped from sun damage

    Default Three wheel scooters

    Even at the price I paid, I consider the micro good value it gets a beating and is still in good condition.

    Yes, helmet. Mainly so it becomes habit for bikes later, but there have still been a few tumbles that made it worth it.

    Hmmm. . Lazy mum in me is not sure she can be bothered having to insist on a helmet every time DS wants to ride a scooter... maybe I'll see what else i can think of for his birthday.

    Thanks for your input, everyone ☺

    DS was pretty compliant because he didn't know any better :-P But yes, there have been times when it's been a "negotiation". The bigger tumbles came once he started getting more confident, and riding around other kids. Lots of other cool gifts for two year olds though.

    I found my kids were really compliant most of the time with helmets. It became habit really quickly. They couldn't ride scooters without them once they mastered them - too many falls when going fast! We don't insist on helmets in the backyard though as there's basically no space anyway.

    I agree with others and helmet. DS sometimes protests for 30 seconds (it is a half hearted but but I don't want to) but puts it on and keeps it on happily.

    We found that he needed to pick his helmet though.

    Yes! Make a big deal out of letting them choose a helmet. DS picked a pretty groovy helmet out. Other kids comment on it. It definitely helps!! Ours is a kiddie moto. Probably not the safest, but compliance is good!!
