Other reviews mention the scooter being too short, but I thought they meant height, and since my child is smaller than average, I thought it wouldn't be a problem. What the reviewers have correctly identified is a deck that is way too short for children over 3.
In addition to not having enough room on the board part of the scooter, my child keeps knocking his foot and ankle into the widely placed back wheels. He has average motor skills, but we have to get him a new scooter, after just one month, because he's black and blue from bashing into the back wheels on rides around the neighborhood. he doesn't have this problem in the house, because he doesn't get enough successive strides to get going in a rhythm inside. Based on trials with other kids' scooters at the playground, we're going to get a Kick rather than a Razor or another Radio Flyer.
The price is right on this scooter, if you can deal with the tears and the huge purple ankle welts in the bathtub...
Because of its classically attractive design, it looks more "grown-up" which, in my son's eyes, is a bonus. The scooter is also sturdy and stable and, so far, has proven durable. I've even briefly tried it with all of my 190 lbs (far exceeding its stated maximum).
It picks up just enough speed, not too much, before having to kick-off again so it's a great first scooter. Even so, other five year olds with the skills to balance, kick off, steer, stop and ding the bell also had fun on this scooter at my son's fifth birthday party. However, if your kid can handle a bit more speed (and you can handle the danger element), you may want to choose another scooter.
So far, it has seen use mostly indoors. In the summer, when the ground dries out, I think it'll ride over packed dirt trails and non-irrigated lawns well enough. But, again, there are probably other scooters that are truly meant to do the off-road thing.
The abosolute best part about the scooter is that my boy loves it. He has had it for over a month and still scoots with a smile almost daily. He has even been known to take it to bed with him (which is strange ... but cute nonetheless).
