If you want to buy a Christmas present for someone who feels the need for speed, a scooter or trike is always a great pick. But what's best for which kind of Easy Rider? Here's a bit of a breakdown. (And don't forget the helmet!)
FOR RETRO APPEAL: Foxrider Retro Tricycle
In a range of beautiful colours, this trike has a cool retro feel, guaranteeing standout status wherever they decide to ride. We also love the rubber handles, wide seat and safety bar at the back. Just add a helmet and they’re good to go.
FOR GROWING ROOM: Globber Evo 4-in-1 Scooter Plus Light
Scooter, balance bike, ride on? The Globber Evo 4-in-1 Scooter Plus Light has it all. There's a seat, parent handle and footrest, which form the bike for smaller riders. As they become more confident, remove the footrest and let them provide the horsepower. Finally, remove the handles and add the adjustable t-bar to convert the ride-on into a scooter.
FOR THE PRE-SCHOOL RUN: Mini Micro Classic
The Mini Micro Classic Scooter is the vehicle that changed pre-school travel forever. Incredibly lightweight and perfectly proportioned for 3-5-year-olds, with grippy handlebars and a sturdy rear stamp-brake that means quick stops for them - and added reassurance for you.
FOR ADAPTABILITY & ECO CREDS: Wishbone Recycled Edition 3-in-1
Everything including the frame, wheels, fixings and packaging made from recycled materials. Ideal from 12 months as a trike, once little ones master walking and perfect their balance, one of the back wheels can be slipped off to convert it to a bike. The height of the seat is easily adjustable, making it a bike that will last up to 6 years.
FOR STYLE: Bird Birdie Scooter
The Birdie Scooter is a cut above your average pavement cruiser. Not just super stylish to look at, the handle bar is height adjustable, so it grows with its driver and it's made with airplane grade metal, with a wide footboard and ultra-wide wheels for enhanced stability.
FOR DRIVERS: Scoot & Ride Highwaykick 1
The Highwaykick 1 is another grow-with-you model that easily transitions between beginner's scooter and balance bike. If you drive to school or the park, its easy-folding design also means you can slip into the boot, then take it out when you reach green space, or for that final stretch to class. We've got to mention the contemporary colours too. Gorgeous right?
FOR SAFETY: A helmet
Protective but stylish too, the Scoot & Ride Helmet is packed full of safety-focused features: a light on the back for increased visibility on those darker days, a comfy chin strap so they won't fuss it's digging in, plus an innovative magnetic fastening, so they can get it on and off themselves. The CoConuts Helmet features a dial-fit adjustment system for a comfy fit, plus front, top and back ventilation to stop little heads from sweating, meaning no helmet hair. We're also mad about these Dinoski Helmet Covers that transform any standard helmet into a bunny, tiger, panda, bear or dino. Genius!
