It’s scooter season!
I’ve been racking my brain for past couple of month trying to decide whether to buy the kid a scooter. Is he old enough? Will he like it? Is it worth it? The “good ones” seem so expensive. And then I decided, yes, he should have one. Why? My bff told me that a scooter is like cool kid currency in NYC. Who am I to deprive my child of that?
Now, which scooter is the best scooter? After reading many mom blogs, browsing scooter review websites and scoping out what the other kids have (this last one was super important) I’ve concluded that the Micro Kickboard scooters are the way to go. Hubby immediately told me that a Razor is the only way to go. I politely told him that the Razor A is the scooter of choice when you’re five years old. Our kid needs a few more years.
Why are these scooters so expensive?
The short answer, I have no idea. I’m new at this mom buying a scooter for her kid thing. The Micro Kickboard seems to be the lightest, the smoothest ride and the perfect kid size because it comes in two sizes and most models have adjustable handle bars.
How do I get the best deal?
This I have experience with. Right now, Target is running a sale. 25% off one toy. A scooter is a toy. So, if you need a scooter now, get one from Target and take 25% off. AND, if you’re a Circle member, it’s another $10 off because there’s an offer you can add that’s $10 off a $60 purchase. Stack those AND get ANOTHER 5% off if you use your REDcard. BOOM! Major savings. You’re welcome. I just did it. LO is getting a scooter AND a helmet for the price of a scooter. Yes, they need a helmet. Get the helmet. Super important. More on that here.
If all of this sounds super complicated or if the sale has ended, don’t worry. You can still get an awesome scooter without paying full price. Check out the Micro Kickboard website sale section. They have warehouse deals for scooters with damaged packaging and/or gently used. Amazon has a similar feature. Click here. Scroll to the scooter you want and click on New & Used. See if there’s one that’s “used-like new.” If it ships from Amazon Warehouse it’s probably a new scooter with a damaged box or a small imperfection. And if it’s more damage than you’d like, Amazon will happily take it back.
Check out my Target picks below. Almost ALL scooters are 25% off, not just the Micro Kickboard ones. I got the aqua Micro Plus with lights. Happy shopping!
