DS1 isn't the most coordinated child but wants a scooter. Can anyone suggest a good one? Maybe something with three wheels that I
is fairly well balanced? He'd be using it both on park pathways and a dirt road (well long dirt driveway anyway)

I would probably recommend a 2 wheeled one for a 4 year old. Learning to get the hang of it will help with coordination, strength and balance. The razor or mad gear scooters are good. IME, the three wheeled scooters don't roll all that fast or well.

I've owned many scooters and by far the best are the 'mini micro'. They have 3 wheels with 2 at the front and one at the back.
I don't know how it would go on dirt though. I don't know any scooter that would work on dirt?

Yeah, the wheels are too small on most scooters to be any good on dirt, I agree

My kids have Razor scooters that have bigger wheels than the normal ones. They are SO much better, more stable, and don't get tripped up by smaller stones and sticks.
But they would still struggle abit on a dirt road. I wonder if you could find one that has bigger rubber tyres, I know Razor does an electric scooter with these but not sure if they have a normal scooter with this option. They would go alright on dirt.
I agree that I would be getting a 2 wheeler for a 4yo though. It wouldn't be long until he'd grow out of a 3 wheeler and want a 2 wheeler.

I havent got one but have seen older style ones in toys r us that have inflatable tyres. I think that would work a lot better on dirt road.

Don't get a 3 wheel one with 2 wheels at the back - we had one for our middle DD and she was always hitting her feet on the wheels.
We got one for DD3 with 2 wheels at the front and it was much easier for her to use.

We got the mini micro for ds last Christmas, it is very stable with 2 front wheels, he quickly mastered it, I got it from bambino pronto

I would try and get a 2 wheeler with inflatable tyres. They are way more stable and easy to use than the little wheels on the razors and they will work fine on the dirt driveway.
Something like these ones maybe?

I wouldn't bother with a 3 wheeled scooter - go straight for two wheel
Kids will learn how to balance them pretty quick at that age!
My two have had 2 wheeled razor scooters since they were 2.5 years old with no troubles!
