Over the past few years, scooters for toddlers have come to the forefront of the entire “scootering” industry. Having better and more advanced designs all the time, these “get-around” toys are becoming not only safer, but more and more fun each year. What’s here: On this page are the ten best toddler scooters through the Christmas holidays of 2017 and into 2017, based on two major factors – popularity by sales and overall consumer ratings. While all of the scooters fall under the category of “toddler,” some also provide features making them appropriate for kids of a bit older age. (Recommended ages for each scooter are listed here where possible.) For shoppers: For each of the scooters listed on this page, online shopping resources have been researched and hand-picked for low pricing, product availability and having trusted reputations for safe, easy and convenient shopping. (Links to product reviews are also here, where available.)
This pint-sized, easy-glide scooter is a safe 3-wheeler with learn-to-steer tech that carves curves and is all smooth-rollin’ on sidewalks. The low-rider, self-balanced deck is perfect for kick-offs to get a-movin’.
The Kiddie Kick from Razor is a junior scooter with all the fixins’ for new riders. There are three wheels with 2 in the back and 1 upfront, making it easier to balance and remain upright and stable. The low deck features a no-slip grip and a convenient fold-over mechanism.
The Learn to Turn tells you a lot about this scooter in the title. The deck is a low-rider, ideal for learning stability and balance, coupled with plenty of strong kick-off opportunities. The handlebar turns to help toddlers learn how to steer before incorporating their weight and the lean-to-steer method.
The YBIKE GLX also makes a hit for the holidays of 2017 and into 2017 among the top toddler scooters.
Dubbed one of the best scooters for toddlers, the GLX is a YBike design with a wide, low deck, lightweight handlebar, and 3-wheel ride. You might see a lot of the 3-wheeled design on toddler scooters. This is because 3 wheels helps them maintain better balance. Includes shoe-grips on deck.
Lovin’ the idea of this 3 in 1 Ride On! In a beautiful shade of rich blue, this Y Glider goes from sit to stand in simple, click-and-go shifts. Toddlers can begin with a comfortable seat. Then progress to a low-rider deck with a smaller handlebar. Includes learn-to-steer 3-wheeled design.
Lil Buzz is a-buzzin with cuteness! This adorable ride-on is a unique toddler scooter that moves, grooves, and turns while youngsters are seated. Decked out in bumblebee décor, the Buzz uses force and weight of your toddler to propel forward.
Another returning favorite toddler scooter, this one from Radio Flyer – My 1st Scooter.
Consider this Radio Flyer a first for your toddler. This scooter comes with an extra-wide, low deck for easier, stronger kick-offs, and a foot brake for better control over the scooter. The handlebar is different with an ergonomic, comfortable grip.
I love the name of this scooter—Globber. Ha, ha! How cute and odd. This scooter is as adjustable as you can get, especially since it is marketed for 3 and up, but can accommodate up to 110 pounds. Includes a low, reinforced deck, covered rear brakes, and height-friendly handlebars.
The Scribble is a classic, crafty scooter for artsy, creative toddlers. The perfect go-to for summer fun, this scooter uses a tube-type back to hold onto pieces of chalk. When your kiddo kicks off and glides, the chalk draws on the sidewalk behind them. That is what I call awesome!
I call this one the Dodo (short abbreviation of the original name). It can be multiple things, from a scooter to a ride-on. And it shifts in a few simple clicks. The seat is comfortable and cushioned, with a box that slides out. Remove the seat and voila—instant scooter.
