Review written by Toddle About VIP Club member, Lauren Cowley. We received the Hape Street Surfer to review recently and my son was extremely excited when he saw the box in which the scooter was well packaged. He was eager to open it and asked whether it was a present for him. He wanted it set up straight away and immediately started zooming up and down the hallway. Upon first look, the Hape Street Surfer is a traditional scooter with a wooden base and gender neutral colours. It has many fantastic qualities including being easy to put together making it a quick process, ready to go in minutes for a very excited child. The handle bars are easily adjustable allowing it to grow with the child meaning it will last longer than your average scooter. The sturdy wide wooden base makes it so easy for my little boy to ride with enough space to safely keep one foot on in the middle of the board while scooting along and is perfect for his balance.
The scooter is adaptable, sturdy and stable, perfect for children aged 3 and up. I’d agree with the product being aged 3 and upwards as the street surfer is bigger than an average scooter. The quality and standard is impeccable and differs from any other plastic scooter I have used before which didn’t feel as safe. The Street Surfer is easy for adults to carry or push-along when their little ones get tired of scooting along. To start with he struggled to steer his scooter in the direction he wanted but with lots of practice indoors and outside he soon had this mastered. My 3 year old is ecstatic with his new toy and his Nonna approves also, calling it the “nicest scooter she has seen”. As well as my little boy loving the scooter, family members who have seen it have also been very impressed with it and this product comes highly recommended from us. Buy from Amazon
