6 Reasons Kids Scooters Make Perfect Xmas Gifts

It's that time of year again, folks! The holiday season is upon us, and you know what that means - it's time to start thinking about what to get those special little ones in your life. But fear not, because we've got the perfect gift idea for you: kids scooters! Yes, you heard that right. Scooters aren't just for the big kids anymore. They're the ultimate Xmas gift for the little ones, and here's why:

Christmas is now just around the corner but for those parents who don’t mind leaving it late, the hunt for amazing gift ideas may just be getting started. If this sounds familiar and you’re after some inspiration then we’re here to tell you that a scooter could be just what you're looking for!

Scooters make incredible gifts for children and for a variety of reasons which we’ll go over in this post. So if you’re looking for Christmas present ideas, here’s what makes scooters a guaranteed hit!

Plenty Of Use

One of the most infuriating parts of buying gifts for children is when they don’t use them and sadly this is all too common with over £1b wasted on items that go unused every year! 

However, if you pause and think for a second, many gifts aren’t really designed to be used over and over again. Many of the toys or games parents buy for their children, for instance, are guaranteed to end up stuffed in a toybox once the novelty has worn off. 

Scooters, on the other hand, should get countless hours of use. In fact, used and maintained correctly, a good-quality kids scooter should be around until your child is too big to use it anymore. Once your child has grown out of it, you should be able to gift it to someone else.

Great Exercise

Some parents are concerned about the amount of exercise their kids get – and for good reason. According to research funded by the British Heart Foundation, with each passing school year kids get less and less active. This should be cause for concern not just for  parents but for society as a whole.

If you’re one of those parents who are concerned your child is spending too much time indoors and not enough time participating in physical activity then a scooter could be an ideal solution.

Scooting makes great exercise as a wide range of muscles are utilised, while a good session on their scooter is also a fab cardio workout, boosting their cardiovascular health.


Although a good scooter will be by no means the cheapest gift you can find, when it comes to getting great value there aren’t many alternatives that can compete.

Once you've purchased your scooter, along with some safety equipment to safeguard them while they’re riding, that’s pretty much all you’ll need to spend. After that your child will get limitless hours of fun out of their scooter, making this a great investment that they’ll reap the rewards from for years to come.

Improves Balance And Coordination

Riding a scooter requires a combination of balance, coordination, quick manoeuvre and spatial awareness. So as well as providing great exercise, mastering a scooter also helps your child to hone their balance and coordination skills. 

Whether it’s for basic tasks like walking or running, or your child is involved in other sports, improving their balance and coordination on their scooter can provide benefits that extend way beyond just when they’re riding.

Encourages Bonding With Others

Manual scooters provide an opportunity for your child to enjoy shared experiences with their friends. It’s also the perfect way to meet new friends as there’ll always be plenty of like-minded children down at the local skatepark waiting to enthusiastically discuss and show off their skills.

If you enjoy fun activities yourself then you may also want to get involved yourself. Scooting is by no means just for the kids, so if you’re looking for something you and your child can get involved in together then this could well be it!

So those are the main reasons why we believe scooters make an excellent Christmas gift. As well as providing a fun, stimulating form of exercise and helping them bond with friends and even family members, they’re also massively cost-effective as your child is bound to get loads of use out of it!
