Isla (my 4.5 year old) was given her first scooter last Christmas and took to scooting like a duck to water. She scoots while I walk with the pram and when we’re at home she just scoots around and around on our deck. She’s obsessed. So needless to say, she was excited when I told her that she was getting a new scooter to trial from Reid Cycles. Her little sister Clover (who is 1.5 years old) was also going to get a scooter to try so it was excitement all round!
Reid’s new Indy scooter is recommended for ages 5-12 and has an adjustable handle which can be moved into 3 heights, so it grows with your child. Although Isla isn’t 5 yet she’s tall enough at 106cm – that the Indy is perfect for her and I’m pumped that it’s going to last her for so many years! I’ve even had a turn on it and am able to comfortably scoot even though I’m quite tall at 174cms (it’s bloody fun I tell you!). It’s a quality scooter and is nice and sturdy feeling, without being too heavy.
Clover is trialing the Indy Junior, recommended for 2-5 year olds, which is lighter to carry than the Indy and doesn’t have an adjustable handle, but is the perfect first scooter. She hasn’t quite gotten the hang of it yet but as she gets closer to two I’m sure she’ll pick it up. For now she’s enjoying being pushed around the kitchen island by her sister.
We got Isla her first bike from Reid Cycles last Christmas. A vintage style kids bike in mint green with a little wicker basket on the front. It’s the sweetest thing and we get asked where it’s from whenever we take it out (which is awkward because Santa gave her the bike, and she’s quick to point it out!). So we are big fans of Reid Cycles and can certainly recommend them for quality and service.
Now, hopefully Santa will bring me a mama sized bike for Christmas this year …
