Although summer isn’t officially here, the parks are already full, children are enjoying the longer days and warmer weather and as parents we’re happy to just be out and about taking in the fresh air. Over this long weekend we were able to give out our new Rockboard (mini) Children’s Scooter a whirl. Although geared for children 5 and up, Big B (4) quickly got the hang of it and was able to maneuver the scooter pretty well with a bit of assistance.
Rockboard scooters are a fun way to exercise. I love that they are a more eco-friendly choice as they do not use a motor (no gasoline), battery or require any kicking.
All you do is “rock” back and forth on your Rockboard scooter and away you go! The more you “rock”, the more you’ll keep on moving! You do not have to constantly rock to keep the scooter moving, it does keep going once you’ve rocked it a bit. When your scooter starts to slow then you know it is time to “rock”! The Rockboard Children’s Scooter has a kickstand which I found helpful as the scooter was not lying on the ground ready to be run or tripped over!
