A few weeks ago my four year old son Floyd had “Wheels Day” at his kindergarten. All the kids got to bring in their ride of choice and like a vast majority of his classmates he wanted a scooter. The problem was his had broken some months before – so he took in Miss 8’s after much negotiation on his part. The pink scooter had to be returned, so it was a very excited little man who opened a large delivery from Globber Scooters this week – to say it has been a hit is putting it mildly.
Globber manufacture a range of scooters that accommodate every little driver. From three wheels to two, ride on convertibles to accessories, Globber is guaranteed to provide the perfect ride for children of all ages. Floyd was sent the Globber My FREE Fold Up with flashing wheels in dark blue. This model is the first on the market to offer an easy to use ellipse folding mechanism which ensures transportation is a breeze. When folded this compact scooter can be stored easily and pulled along by the handlebars.
Ideal for the youngest of riders (recommended for ages 3 and over) the Globber My FREE Fold Up has three height positions, is a comfortable, well balanced ride for beginners and has three height positions so all children can be accommodated – whether they are small or large like my Floyd.
Since it’s arrival, not only has Floyd not stopped riding, he has had to battle his siblings for a turn – because all his sisters keep stealing it when he isn’t looking. We have an ideal driveway for riders – it is big, long and has an incline, the perfect raceway to have put the new Globber to the test.
So what did we think?
Ease of setup and use: Dad put the My FREE Fold Up together in minutes and Floyd was riding like a pro immediately. It was no hassle and no fuss: perfect for kids and parents.
Safety features: the height adjustable T-BAR handle means not only does it suit him now, it will suit him as he grows. The scooter’s low deck gives greater stability for him, and greater peace of mind for me. The long and rear covered brake was easy for Floyd to use – which made me feel safer watching his confidence and speed increase. Steering lock button on the front of deck (safe and simple handling) for steering locking system to make learning easier. The performance: X-CROSS deck design, strengthens the deck structure and improves directional turning performance to the T-BAR handlebar.
The size: this scooter fits easily in the boot or in the front of the car without taking up a lot of space – ideal when you have multiple kids or limited boot space.
The steering lock button: located on the front of the deck this locks the steering in place so your rider learns to scooter straight first before becoming a dare-devil on their wheels.
The flashing wheels: without a doubt this was the best thing about this scooter for not only Floyd but all the kids. I don’t blame them – who doesn’t want to stand out and sparkle when driving? A massive hit.
The brakes: easy to manoeuvre and ride he stopped and started with ease and had it down pat in no time.
Easy to use: Floyd can fold the scooter up and down himself and transport with ease – no parental help required.
Every safe driver needs to adhere to the road rules and Floyd was also sent the Globber Helmet RRP $60. These are Australian Bike Standards Approved, have a DFS (Dial Fit System) for a Perfect Fit, a Magnetic Catch Lock and come in Small (48-54cm), Medium (55-58cm), Large (59-61cm)
