We bought this scooter for our 3 year old who is now turning 5. I am on this site looking for the next step in riding for him. He has used it hard for 2 years. It was the PERFECT design for learning to scoot. Wide base. Easy turning. I have said this is the best product that we have purchase. Most products simply just don't hold up anymore and my husband and I have said this is one of the best products we have bought for the price and life of it. Still in great shape will pass it on to a younger family member when done with it. I have recommended this to SEVERAL friends who have bought it and are happy too.
