Scoot & Ride Revolutionary Design takes kids scooters to a whole new level of fun

When you have a young family you need to make sure that every dollar you spend provides value for money and with kids growing up so fast that is not always the way it works out. The Austrian Designed Scoot & Ride changes all that with its revolutionary balance bikes/scooters range that are suitable for ages 12 months plus right through until they reach 50 Kilograms and are now available in Australia.

The Scoot and Ride range in Australia comes in 2 different designs, the Highwaykick 1 and the Highwaybaby Plus and both incorporate the same revolutionary design features that make them exciting and fun for kids to ride as they grow from toddlers into young children.

Check out the concept in this video showing the Highwaykick 1 :

The concept of the Scoot and Ride is revolutionary yet simple, they could best be described as the transformers of the Balance Bike / Scooter world. In a few seconds the Balance Bike can be transformed to a scooter and when the little legs get tired, back again to a balance bike, no tools, no mess and no fuss just a great design concept at work. Not only that but the Scoot & Ride comes fully assembled ready to ride. The Scoot & Ride range easily fit in the back of almost any car and are lightweight and easy to lift for parents.

The Scoot & Ride range is available in two designs. The first, the Highway Kick 1 is available in bright  Pink or Blue colours and features a reverse tricycle type set up with 2 larger front wheels and a smaller scooter sized wheel at the back. The Highway Kick 1 also features a stopper at the front just in case your child goes into long grass or soft ground and the bike/scooter tries to flip forward, it will be stopped by the stopper. A great safety addition for your young adventurer.

The second design is the Highway Baby plus design, The Highway Baby features a larger single front wheel and a smaller back wheel is available in a two tone Blue/orange or a Pink/yellow colour scheme. This model does not feature the stopper on the front, but the larger front wheel negates the need for this in all but the most extreme cases.

All of the Scoot & Ride range feature solid rubber tyres, adjustable seat heights (in balance bike mode) and adjustable handlebar heights to grow with your child.

We tested out the Highway Kick 1 on the kids’ bike track at our local park with our helmeted Miss Jasmine aged 3. What can we say but she loved it, scootering just like her big brother before tiring herself out and riding around chasing her big brother, it was a fun afternoon of outdoor play, so much so that Miss Jasmine was reluctant to leave which she demonstrated as only a 3 year old could!

We love the fact that the Scoot and Ride company has thought outside the box and developed a great toy that will not only suit your young child but continue to be practical and fun as they grow. We gave the Scoot and Ride our top 5 Star Rating, and we are not the only ones who thinks this toy is something special winning the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2014, the Toy Award in 2015 and the Tillywig Toy Awards – Stirling Toy Award.
