As parents we are focused on making sure our kids get good grades, making sure they get to school on time, they brush their teeth, and their homework is done daily. But, something I’ve noticed is not everyone feels like kids should be outside getting outside play often. Now, I’m not too sure why that is but I grew up outside until dark, when the street lights came on. I was all over our neighbourhood, and although I did check-in often and my mom almost always knew where I was, I was an outside kid through and through.
I hated being inside, and the odd times I was due to weather I wasn’t much of a television girl. I loved imaginative play. I’d use monopoly money and a calculator and pretend I was a cashier, I’d do this by myself in my bedroom and looking back now its hilarious, but it taught me that things in stores weren’t free, it taught me how to value a dollar, and how much I love make believe. Something a lot of kids are lacking these days, including mine too sometimes.
I try to get my kids outside as often as possible when the weather permits. Although they don’t get to run around as freely as I did from age 7-teenager, the kids who are 10+ in my house do get a little bit more freedom. The little ones however are stuck with mom, and siblings for supervision. This of course doesn’t stop Hanna and Justin from requesting daily trips to the backyard or out on the sidewalk to play. Recently, we were given a Globber Scooter, the Globber Evo 4-in-1 Convertible Scooter that they both adore sharing and have both mastered to ride rather quickly.
Note: For this post Hanna had to borrow Justin’s helmet, it’s not hers – she now has her own. Be sure to always practice proper safety and have proper fitting helmets.
The Globber Evo 4-in-1 Convertible Scooter starts as a ride-on seat for mom and dad (or siblings) to push their little one on and once the child is able to push around by his or herself, the T bar handlebar comes off, transforming into a pushbike that the tyke can independently push around on.
As the child grows and enhances their motor skills, the seat of the Globber Evo 4-in-1 comes off the deck and the original T bar handle used by mom and dad, connects to the deck and becomes a Globber Primo 3-Wheel Adjustable Height Scooter!
- Durable & comfortable TPR handlebar grips
- X-Cross deck design helps improve the quality of turns
- 3-height adjustable T-bar with easy-to-use clamp for up to 6+
- 2-height adjustable seat.
- Button to easily remove the seat.
- Extra-low deck for better stability.
- Weight capacity up to 110 lb (49.8 kg)
While Justin can use the Evo as a normal scooter Hanna enjoys it as a ride-on. Once Mia is old enough too, she will be able to enjoy it as well. It’s much sturdier than any other scooter we’ve ever had, and in the last few years we’ve had quick a few. It’s quick and easy to adjust the scooter and switch it from setting to setting, making it a great choice for moms like me who aren’t very handy.
This convertible scooter will grow with your child up to 6 years old. It’s also available in a variety of colours such as: green, blue and pink.
I love that this scooter can be used for multiple kids at multiple different levels and times. It’s absolutely nothing to quickly switch the settings from one child to another and it ensures none of our smaller kiddos will feel left out!
