Buying the best scooter for 2 Year Old Boy
In this article, I will provide information about 5 of the best types of scooters that you can get for your 2-year-old child. However, before I do that, here are some general factors you should put into consideration when buying your 2-year-old child a scooter (Apart of the general considerations on How to choose the best scooter for your kid):
- The scooter must have at least 3-wheels because children under two years cannot have the balance for 2 wheels yet.
- The scooter should be of lightweight to make it easier for your kid to pick it up especially when maneuvering or changing directions
- Scout for scooters that have features that will ensure balance, safety, and stability e.g. a low, wide deck. Look out for features that would grow with your children e.g. height adjustable handlebars.
- Ensure the scooter handlebars should be around the waist height on your 2 year old kid.
Having these factors in the back of your mind, here are 5 of the scooters you should consider buying for your 2-year-old child and younger kids.

Mini Micro Scooter
This is a splendid scooter with O-bar handle and a seat. It is a three wheel scooter and its low-to-the-ground deck and safe steering ensures stability that makes it perfect for your 2-year-old-kid. The height from the deck to the top handlebar is about 43cm, and the handlebar is about 61cm which makes the scooter grow with your child.
The mini micro scooter is extremely lightweight, about 1.5kg, which makes it quite easier for your kid to control. Also, adults will find it easier to pick it up and carry when the kid is done.
Three essential features make the mini micro scooter spectacular; sitting on the seat with the O-Bar; standing on the deck with the O-Bar, and standing on the deck with the replacement T-Bar.
VOKUL VK-1281F 3 Wheel Scooter
The Vokul is also an excellent 3 wheel scooter. It has two 120mm wheels in front and a smaller 80mm wheel at the back.
The wheels are made of polyurethane (PU) to ensure a smooth ride over cracks and bumps. The height of this scooter is adjustable, and it weights slightly under 2kg which makes it easier for your kids to manage.
It is not a foldable scooter, but the flashlights attached make it fun for kids to cruise around. It is a very good alternative to the mini micro scooter.
The Zoom Cruzer is a cheaper alternative for the mini micro and Vokul scooters. The wheels are also PU with 120mm front wheels and 100mm rear wheel.
The handlebar is about 66cm which is quite the same height as mini micro. It weighs about 2.5kg which makes it a little bit heavier than the mini micro but is still relatively light compared to scooters for older age groups.
If you prefer affordability, you might want to go for the Zoom Cruzer.
The re-enforced extra grip footplate, as well as an extra wide rear wheel (about 4.5cm) added to this scooter, ensures more stability and safety.
Ozbozz Trail Twister (Ozbozz my first scooter)
If you are a bit tight on budget to get a good scooter for your 2-year-old child, the Ozbozz Trail Twister might be a good option to consider. It has some pretty good features including; PU wheels, weight under 2.2kg, the height of handlebar 67cm, lean and steer system among others.
Although this scooter might be best for 3-5 years old, it could also serve its purpose for your 2-year-old.
Character Scooters for Toddlers
Most character scooters are characterized with one wheel in front (about 135mm) and two wheels at the back (about 115mm). They are designed to be sturdy, safe and appealing, making them a good option to be considered when buying your 2-year-old kid a scooter.
They come with designs of various characters like Frozen and Spiderman, and this makes them appealing to the kids. They have an adjustable handlebar of between 59cm to 64cm to provide for children of different heights. However, these scooters do not pick up a good speed and may be difficult to steer and manoeuvre, which makes it frustrating for some kids, but some will do pretty well with it.
PS – To best protect your children, I strongly recommend that you wear helmets and knee pads for them when riding.
