So I decided to get my daughter who is now approaching age 10 the Razor A3 scooter, and I am glad that I did. First of all there is a price difference, and while there are sales and deals at times, the difference between the two scooters averages about $20-$25, so if you aren't ready to spend close to $50 this isn't for you. I say that it is worth the price. The scooter weighs a little bit more, and just feels stronger overall. The handlebars extend higher, which allows taller riders to use it with ease. The deck is wider and longer (see pictures) which creates a more stable platform to ride on. As I've stated the wheel size is significantly different, and the bigger wheels on the A3 allow for a MUCH smoother ride. It can take on bumps and cracks in the pavement or sidewalk without issues. It also allows the rider to go faster and farther without having to push as much. The kickbar over the back wheel is a nice added touch if your child is able to actually do "tricks". My daughter is not able to do anything in terms of tricks, but has found that the kickbar is a great place to put her back/pushing foot when she is riding that also gives her easy access to the brake (which is the metal covering over the back wheel).
I firmly believe that the A3 could be purchased for even younger children as the handlebar height is adjustable, and it would be easy to adjust to their height as they get older. I have attached pictures for comparison between the original A1 and the new A3 (A1 is pink, A3 is blue). I hope that my thoughts and pictures will help you when making a choice for your child.
1) The scooter does not fold or unfold easily. There is a lever that requires significant force and multiple tries. I called tried other people's scooter, of this model and similar (A1, A2) and found the same issue. I called Razor customer service and after saying that it shouldn't be hard, said, "here are some tips that may help the issue..." which suggests that they have heard this complaint before. One of the tips (to pull up and away on the T-bar while pushing the lever, seems to help, but it is not easy nor does it work consistently.
2) The scooter swings wildly when carried and not yet folded, resulting in nicked shins; the name "razor" is appropriate. It would be easy to provide for (an add-on or direct mechanism) that prevents this swinging but they have neglected to do so.
My son is 5 and was previously a master of a 3 wheel scooter, flying down the block. This Razor has achieved the desired goal of slowing him down, but the problems above make me regret my decision.
Update: it's still not great, but with time one gets the 'trick' of making it fold. Ya' still gotta watch your shins. I wish it could "click" in place for carrying so as not to swing wildly. And now, 6 months on, my son is just as fast as he was on a 3 wheel scooter.
