Top Toy For Tots: Radio Flyer Scoot ‘N Zoom Review!
My little scooters are 25 months, 3 weeks, and 1 day old.
If you were going to ask me what one toy my twins could NOT live without, the answer would be simple. The Radio Flyer Scoot ‘n Zoom!
It’s a very basic looking, simplistic, ‘mini vehicle’ if you will, and costs between only $19.99 – $24.99, but it worth it’s weight in gold over at my house. It features the name and quality of the Radio Flyer brand, without the high sticker price.
Plus, you can easily store this hollow, little push car almost anywhere. And they are light as a feather. We got them for the twins for Christmas and they have been scooting freely and happily ever since. My only regret was not buying them sooner.
I can easilly carry these from the car to the park, so both inside and out this toy’s a big hit! I got them for $24.99 a piece and it was a wonderful investment. It proves you don’t always need the bells and the whistles to make kids happy.
The rotating caster wheels seem to glide smoothly on most any surface. They can easily spin around if desired, and children can even ride sideways and backwards if they wish. (And they have.) The twins sometimes seem to be racing one another or even playing bumper cars at times.
I have even ridden on it, so while small, don’t let it’s size fool you into thinking that a 2 or even an average size 3 year old couldn’t maneuver this well. My 6 year old has played with it also. I’d say my recommended age would be 12-36 months.
This product has never tipped over once. Ride on toys that tip easily can be very dangerous. This is low to the ground and also is very sturdy and balanced. There has never been a tipping incident, or any ‘close calls’, and they are used daily. In fact, I can hear my twins racing downstairs as we speak.
2. Doesn’t damage your floors.
It’s great for outside, but on a chilly Winter day this toy still comes through. It has never left one mark on our kitchen floor. We all like that one!
3. Easy design, simple to ride.
It’s very uncomplicated, and there is nothing for mom and dad to put together. All your toddler does is hold on to the easy to grab handle in front, and simply scoot away!
4. Glides on air.
No frustration on the part of your toddler. It doesn’t take a lot of muscle power to make the Scoot ‘n Zoom go, and the ride is smooth and flawless. They can scoot and zoom in any direction, due to the very ‘cool’ caster wheels that turn a full 360 degrees.
5. A great source of exercise.
You may like the idea of this tiring out your child for a nap or for bedtime, but since they are using their own push power to make this toy ride, they are definitely getting a great amount of exercise which is a terrific benefit. Year round your child can get a great daily workout while having a whole lot of fun!
6. The name speaks for itself. QUALITY!
Radio Flyer has always been huge in our home, and we’ve always adored their products. By looking around me, I can tell most families feel the same way and own at least one Radio Flyer product. The quality is always there, even on their most basic items.
7. The price
Who could beat this price? Yes, it doesn’t play music, have a siren, or a horn to honk, but trust me..if you have a tot at home he or she will ADORE the Scoot ‘n Zoom. You will get your monies worth back in a day or two’s time, I assure you.
It’s a great product, and I highly recommend the Radio Flyer Scoot & Zoom. Especially for those in the 12-36 month category. We love it.
(Quick tip & important note: If you have twins or children close in age, BUY TWO! They will fight over this toy if you don’t! Also, please note there was an old model recalled, however, there is nothing being sold online or in stores now that is the old version of this toy. They are all 100% safe to buy and ride with confidence!)
The best price is direct from Radio Flyer HERE! ($19.99 WOW!)
