Maybe you never had the chance to zoom around on a scooter like this as a kid. (There's always tomorrow!)
From toddlers to teens, kids can't resist putting a knee, a bottom, a foot or a belly down for a spin. Across abilities and age ranges, you get your money's worth with this floor scooter.
Many traits make this 16 inch scooter a favorite for safety and fun. A broad, flat surface, close to the ground means lesser likelihood of injury. The contoured handles that help children grip this sturdy plastic scooter offer outstanding stability and balance. And you'll appreciate the fact that playing on a scooter like this develops strength of the upper and lower extremities. Toy scooters support motor planning and vestibular activities. Children can sit, kneel or lie in a prone position for prone extension on their scooter.
Beyond that, scooter riding (especially with a friend) is a whole lot of fun! To think that these clever little scooters are available outside of a PE class is fantastic! To see such them at such a great price is even better!

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 0 years of age.

Speech & Language Delay
"Our occupational therapists uses the scooter board with my daughter lying on her belly on the board and using her hands to pull herself along a distance, picking up foam alphabet puzzle pieces on the way and putting them on the foam board puzzle she lies on her back while propelling along. Great for muscle strengthening her upper body & core and even more so for implementing her motor planning & following directions. LOVE IT!"
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Sensory Integration Disorder
"My two year old lays on his belly and I spin him in a circle quickly. Also he pulls himself with his arms up and down the hall way in relay type challenges. This is great heavy work."
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Learning Disabilities
"We are using it to build hand and arm strength. "
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Autism
"My son has high functioning autism. I use this as a good rainy day toy, as well as encouraging him to work on coordination and balance. He has come up with several ways to ride on the scooter board, such as sitting and scooting and laying on it flat and pulling himself along with his hands. The motion seems to help him with his sensory issues, and its great exercise for him when he can't get outside. Also, he just gets plain old enjoyment from it, after all, to him it is a toy. Many autistic children enjoy spinning, and the way the wheels are hinged, he has found a way to spin with the board. He has enjoyed it."
Great toddler therapy tool!

Got this product for home therapy for my daughter with poor muscle coordination & autism. She is very small for her age of 5- 40 pounds & 40in tall and this does well for her. We use it, per our OT's direction at home with my daughter laying on her belly and propelling herself forwards & backwards building muscle core strength & arm strength. Some of these have padding, but it hasn't seemed necessary. She does not fight me to do therapy with this. The price is OUTSTANDING! THANK YOU! Rolls EASILY, therefore I am very happy it has handles to help my child pick it up to put it away since it could just about kill someone stepping on it mistakenly! Seems plenty sturdy enough for her weight andthe delivery was very speedy!

I bought this for my 4 year old son because it was one of the tools used in his occupation therapy and physical therapy. I think i have more fun on it than he does. It is a fun toy because we have all wood floors. I think once his friends see it he will want to use it more. I love it.
