When I grew up we were always playing outside and we loved it. Marking the streets with chalk, climbing trees, swinging on the swing, playing soccer, the hula hoop, skipping with a rope and of course riding a scooter. Our old kick scooter was bright red and even had a padded seat to sit on, at the time we thought it was awesome. But scooters have changed a bit since then and I have been told a Razor scooter is the hip new ride kids are going for.

The Razor label is well known all around the world and has been designing scooters for more than 10 years. They have taken the childish out of scooters by creating a range of scooters to suit everyone from young to old, amateur to professional and small to big budgets. With 20+ different designs and counting Razor is the top name in scooters and as Australian children love spending time outside it is no surprise that many will be adding a Razor scooter to their Christmas wish list this year. In a society where children spend way too much time in front of the tv or game console a Razor scooter encourages children to get outside and get moving so this is fantastic gift idea.

The award winning Razor A Kick Scooter ($69.99, ages 5+) is a 2-wheel scooter with a stylish alloy design, tough build and foldable frame, available in 5 different colours. The aircraft-grade aluminium deck and t-tube are of the highest quality so parents can be confident they are make a safe choice and get value for money. The lightweight Razor A Kick Scooter weighs just 2.7kg so it is easy to carry around and travel with (if you are not riding it that is). This scooter can hold up to 65kg in weight and the handle bars are adjustable so the A Kick Scooter will grow with your child for years to come.

In a way I am glad my little ones are a bit too young to cruise our neighbourhood by scooter, but when they are old enough to give it a shot I will make sure they don’t go out without a helmet and elbow and knee protection. At Razor they understand how important safety is so the Razor website holds a lot of valuable information for kids and parents about how, when and where to use the Razor scooters (safely), as well as a bunch of cool tips and tricks to make the most out of your new scooter.
