As a fashionable and fun toy, children's scooters have become the love of many children. However, the current children's scooters on the market can be described as varied and vary in size from tens of dollars to thousands of dollars.

For the majority of consumers to buy a comfortable and cost-effective children's scooter, I teach you to pick a children's scooter today!


1. Age division


Infant scooter (2 to 6 years old)

The infant scooter is designed for young children and its models are small and safe, helping children learn to slide and let them learn to walk in balance. Parents are advised to try to buy a three-wheel type when helping children buy a children's scooter. Such scooters are more stable than other models.

Children's scooter (6 to 12 years old)

Children's scooters of this age should consider the shape, size and weight of the scooter. Because children of this age are relatively naughty and tricky in terms of play, in order to allow children to play happily. Parents are advised to consider the child's height and appearance in line with the child's needs and weight when purchasing a children's scooter.


2. Security considerations


Safety is the most important point for children, so the primary consideration when purchasing a children's scooter is safety. After January 1, 2016, the country began to use the GB6675.12-2014 "Toy Safety Standard", which has more detailed requirements for the requirements of toy scooters. These requirements are for parents to buy reference:

(1) The end of the handle of the child's scooter shall have an enlarged handlebar sleeve. The handle sleeve and its protective member should not be separated under the 70N Larry. Of course, the diameter of the end of the hand should be greater than 40mm, which is convenient for the child to grasp. When parents buy a scooter for their children, they should pull the handlebars to see if they are easy and free.

(2) Children's scooters must not have sharp edges or dangerous sharp pointed ends and the locking device must not be damaged or disabled. According to the "New Standard", the middle position of each handle should be able to withstand 50kg in 5 minutes, no more than 0.5kg load up and down, and no collapse and breakage.
(3) When the baby weighs more than 20kg but less than 50kg, the child scooter must have a brake system acting on the rear wheel, and this brake system should work effectively, the speed is stable, and the emergency can not be stopped, thus ensuring the safety of the baby. 
The above three parents can be checked manually. If parents are not comfortable with the scooter safety factor, it is recommended to check the instructions to see if they meet the national certification standards: GB6675.1-2014, GB6675.2-2014, GB6675.3-2014, GB6675.4-2014, GB6675.12-2014.



3. Use materials


(1) Wheels: Wheels are the most important part of a children's scooter, and the materials used in the wheels directly determine whether the child is smooth when sliding. The children's scooters in the market mostly use PU wheels. This type of wheels has strong anti-slip, grip and wear resistance.

(2) Brake: Brake is commonly called brake. Usually the brakes of children's scooters are set at the top of the rear wheel. Therefore, parents should use the pedals when purchasing to see if the brakes are flexible.

(3) Pedal: Inferior children's scooter pedals are usually weak, and relatively heavy children will deform when they step on their feet. Such children's scooters not only can not make children play well and may be dangerous, so parents must pay attention to the weight of the pedals when purchasing children's scooters.
