Both my daughters are very active and love to play outdoors. Shred Sled, a company that specializes in extreme sports products for kids, has just released the first-ever active shock absorber scooter. It’s a great outdoor toy that encourages kids to get off the couch and get moving!
What makes the Shox Scooter unique is it’s innovative spring shock deck that absorbs impact when landing jumps and stunts. It also has a rough grip surface on the deck where your child stands, making it easier for them to have foot control and traction. A sturdy back break provides extra control and safety.
The Shox Scooter, which retails for $59.99, is made for kids ages 5 and up. Both my girls, ages 5 and 8, enjoyed riding on it. My older daughter is really adept at riding on a scooter and had no adjustment period at all. My 5-year-old is just learning to ride a scooter and said the Shox Scooter was easier to ride than our other, older Barbie no-frills scooter! Although it’s intended to increase a rider’s speed and air-time, making stunts bigger and better, it was also appropriate for my beginner at 5.
