My daughter has become very fond of things with wheels lately whether it’s bikes, trikes, scooters, stroller, shopping cart (she loves to push the shopping cart). She is getting to a point that she can play with all of these things. She is loving being able to push things. I figured that it was time to get her something with wheels. I found this Y-Bike GLX Pro Scooter!!
Since my daughter is a little under 2 years old she won’t be able to ride it for a while, but I got a few of my nieces to be my testers. They all seemed to love it. The age recommended for this scooter is 5+up.
Here are a few features of the scooter that my nieces loved:
-The way it glided. They said it was so smooth, even when they went on a bumpy sidewalk.
-They loved how it looked so cool. Scooters are always cool, but the fact that it stood out from other scooters really got their attention.
-The soft griped handle bars.
The scooter was very easy to assemble. It came only in two pieces. All I had to do was the the handle bars in the slot they went and I was done. If you look at the above picture you will see that at the bottom of the handle bars are two things poking out on both ends. That is the part the you put in the hole (below picture) and they lock in place. It makes the scooter secure and makes sure the handles bars won’t fall off.
Another great thing is that the handle bars come out very easily. If your child wants to take it with them to a friends house or the park, it will save space in your car and is easy to transport. All you have to do is turn the scooter over and push the black buttons and pull and they will come out!
The scooter can move up and down, it has 3 positions. The lowest position can definitely fit a 5 year old. My daughter can actually reach the handle bars at the lowest position.
I do want to add that my 5 year old niece had a little bit of trouble using it. It was too hard to her to understand. The thing about this scooter is that to turn you have to lean. Normal scooters let you use the handle bars to turn. But this one you have to lean on the scooter. She couldn’t even turn with it.
My 7 year old niece even had problems with it. But she was able to understand how to use it after a while. My 9 year old niece was really the only one that was able to understand it right away. So with practice all the girls were able to use it. And even when they couldn’t do it, they still tried hoping they’d learn how.
Even though my daughter can’t ride it right now. She really loves to play with it. She always pushes it around and love to sit and stand on it.
