There is no surprise our kids love more than an unexpected day off with Hip Daddy, especially if it involves going out for an outdoor adventure. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny winter’s day so we bundled all the kids into the car, packed their scooters and helmets and enjoyed a lovely ride along the river. The kids (and I) had so much fun that they didn’t really want to leave, I think we can safely say we’ll be back for another roll in no-time!
As the twins have really shot up this last year (Can you believe they are turning 8 next month?) we recently upgraded their scooters to a bigger, better design to suit their growing bodies perfectly: the MyTOO 12.5 by Globber.
The Globber MyTOO 12.5 (RRP $170, ages 8+) is a seriously stylish, sturdy scooter designed for riders up to 100kg and with a minimum height of 1.30m. Created from durable, high quality materials with an aircraft ALU technical deck and ultra reinforced front structure this new Globber ride is made to last. Globber clearly understands how adventurous kids can be at times so they’ve created a scooter that is safe, strong and suitable for an intensive, active lifestyle.
The 125mm wheels in transparent HQ and High Rebound PU with nylon cores and high quality bearings ensure a super smooth ride at all times, one light push and you’re off! Olivia generally prefers to play it safe, so it was great to see the deck was wide enough for her to feel confident and the steering and back brake easy so she felt safe and in control.
Thanks to the height-adjustable handlebars and generous weight limit the MyTOO 12.5 is a fantastic investment that will grow with your child. It was immediately clear that this Globber scooter is very well constructed and built to last the distance, it’s most definitely not a cheap or flimsy ride. I can see many enjoyable scooter rides in our future, bring on the weekend so we can test out the next track.
While the scooters are a definite upgrade in size and height they thankfully don’t take up more room in storage or transport. The foldable design is ideal for a family car with limited booth space and even the handlebars can be folded in. The MyTOO 12.5 is also surprisingly lightweight so the kids can easily lift and carry it themselves when needed, for example to cross grass or gravel.
