Razor Offers Fun Outdoor Items For the Whole Family

Now that summer is winding down, we're saying goodbye to the humidity and hello to cooler temps. Scarlett enjoys playing outside for as much as the year allows and I always like to carry over her favorite outdoor things into Fall.  Sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and riding her bike are just a few things you'll see her doing this Fall.  Since it's imperative to get children up and moving as much as you can, I'm always looking for new things for her to enjoy outdoors.

Razor Scooters provide outdoor entertainment for children and adults of any age.  Your kids will go nuts for hover boards, rip stiks, electric scooters, electric skateboards, and much more.  Adults will equally love Dirt Rocket bikes and Eco Smart Metro electric scooters.  The site is divided into product age ranges like junior (2-4), kids (5-7), older kids (8-12) and teens/adults (13+) to help you select the right product for your child's age or your own.  I had a Razor scooter when I was younger and I loved it.  Too bad Razor didn't offer electric options at that time because I would have really enjoyed that.  Any garage around the world would welcome a new Razor addition.

With the holidays in the not so distant future, it's never too early to do some holiday shopping.  Why not gift your niece a hover board and thrill your son with Turbo Jetts? It would certainly be a Christmas they wouldn't quickly forget!  Keep Razor in mind for gift giving for a lucky boy or girl for any occasion.

Now that Scarlett is 3 months away from turning 4, she's really into using big girl bikes and toys outside.  This summer marked a momentous occasion for her.  She received her first bike with training wheels that she learned how to ride.  Why not keep the momentum going with a Lil' E Electric Scooter? This adorable scooter comes in blue or pink depending on your child's gender.  It's a revolution in fun for the little ones.

This electric scooter is built specifically for youngsters who are mastering their balance and coordination.  You'll notice that the scooter provides the extra stability of three wheels and a simplified push-to-go, soft start throttle that keeps them in control as they explore the thrills of electric-powered fun.

Scarlett was ecstatic when the scooter arrived and couldn't wait to ride it.  She kept showing it to my husband and I and saying "look at my scooter!" As a parent, I find that most toys and products for children require assembly and I'm not always good at it.  If it's minimal enough, I can do it myself but most of the time I ask my husband to help out.  I was elated when the scooter had a few simple steps that could be completed in about 5 minutes. 

The scooter itself features a bright and cheery pink with purple accents.  There's a wide footboard that allows little feet to securely stay on.  Little hands will easily be able to grip the handlebars to turn and move whichever way they want. It seems like a solid piece of equipment that's quality made.

Before your child rides, the scooter does have to charge for 12 hours. I decided to have that step be done overnight so Scarlett wouldn't be constantly asking if it was ready yet.  Once fully charged, the scooter lasts a solid hour before needing to be charged again.  That is enough time in my opinion and will let a child spend a decent amount of time outside using it.  In the morning, when the scooter was ready we decided to take it outside for a spin.  Scarlett had no idea electric scooters exist, so she was like a kid in a candy store!

She seemed to get the idea of keeping her feet on it while moving, but did need some practice with turning and maneuvering the scooter.  Steering is something we're working on with her bike too.  Since we live in a townhouse complex, we have a large parking lot that is ideal for using the scooter in.  I loved seeing her so happy and it was also a great way to get her out of the house to do a fun outdoor activity.  Scarlett is of an average height for her age and was not too tall for the scooter at all.  The age range is 3+.  I'm hoping we have at least another year to use it before she outgrows it.

The scooter goes a max of 2 MPH so parents will be able to keep up with their child as they ride it.  Whether your child rides the scooter on a driveway, in a park, or on the sidewalk you can guarantee smiles will be seen.  I feel that 2 MPH is an ideal speed, not too fast or too slow.  If the scooter went too fast, I think I'd be concerned about Scarlett falling off and getting hurt.  Make sure your child wears a helmet at all times when using it.

Scarlett had no issues with remembering to push the large green button to get some air underneath those wheels.  I think she felt like such a big girl riding by herself and she relished the independence!

You'll notice that since the scooter is of a small and compact nature, you can easily travel with it in the trunk for a road trip or just bring it to another destination to use.

I am certain that Scarlett will spend the next few weeks outside riding her scooter until it gets too cold to do so.  We may have to add a jacket into the mix soon!

If you're looking to add some excitement and entertainment to your child's outdoor play, Razor is waiting to hear from you!
