Is there anything better than a scooter for good, wholesome fun that keeps your child outside and away from screens?

Kids' scooters are just as fun as they have always been, and these days they come maxed out with cool features to take your child's enjoyment to the next level.  We've put this list of the best kids' scooters together so you can kick your feet up and relax, worry-free, while your child is cruising around with style and safety.

There are a range of different types of scooters and choosing the right option to suit your child's ability is key. The number of wheels on a scooter is the first important choice you have to make.  Three wheeled scooters have two wheels in the front and one in the back for added stability. They are a great first scooter for kids aged two and up as they offer extra stability and reduced speed. Two wheel scooters are often more durable and are great for older children and kids with a good sense of balance who want to move with more speed.  

Depending on what your child is interested in, you can also choose between stunt, electric and off road scooters. Stunt scooters or pro scooters are for kids who are serious about scooting. They are high quality two wheel scooters with wide T-bar handles that give added stability to help support their rider to perform tricks and flips. Electric scooters are powered by electric motors or rechargeable batteries. They are heavier, more stable and a tonne of fun. However, they don't require manual pushing which means your child won't be getting any exercise. Off road scooters have big wheels with tyres that let them go on rough grounds like dirt and grass. However, their chunkiness makes them unsuitable for trick riding.

With so many categories of scooters, we've listed the best of each kind so you can confidently make the right choice for your little one. If you're looking for more toys to inspire your child to get moving and play outdoors, check out our list of the best boxing bags and gloves for kids.
