With 5 kids, I am always on the lookout for fun new toys to get them outside and playing, especially now that we are homeschooling. When we were offered an Original Rockboard Scooter for the kids to try out, we were pretty excited and couldn't wait for it to get here.
When the scooter arrived, I thought it would be a great learning experience for our oldest 2 boys if I allowed them to read the directions and get it ready to ride (with my supervision, of course). As soon as the box arrived, they got to work on it and I was impressed that within 10 minutes, they were ready to rock! They are 10 and 13 so this should tell you something. The scooter came fully assembled and it just took a couple steps to have it ready to ride.
The original is for ages 8 and up. If you have younger children, you will want to check out the smaller version of the original, the Mini. This scooter can be used in traditional kick scooter mode and then can be easily transformed into Rock mode which is, of course, my kids favorite way to ride. The Rockboard scooter uses advanced rockboard propulsion technology to allow the deck to move back and forth as you ride. The original comes in 4 colors and can hold a single person up to 200 pounds.
Summer might technically be almost over but there are still plenty of months to get outside and enjoy the fresh air here in Ohio and this has been a perfect way to keep our kids active. Check out the video below to see the Rockboard Scooter in action!
