One problem with this activity is that we live on a gravel road so it’s really hard for beginners to navigate the rocks and uneven surface. Also, it’s hard to for me to safely care for two kids on two bikes on the road. In turn, they don’t get out as often as we’d all like.
Designed with Your Child in Mind
This product is a 2-in-1 scooter and push-bike combination specially developed for kids aged between 3 and 5 years. Manufactured out of aluminum and steel components, the Highwayfreak exceeded my expectation of a durable toy for kids, or anyone for that matter. With a one-step installation, The Kids had the handlebars installed in two minutes and even figured out that there was a kick stand.
With the slide of a button, that even a child can do, the scooter swings up into a chair position for a pushing/sitting activity. I appreciate that a lot of thought has gone into the safety of the product and it meets multiple safety standards (in several countries) and comes with a warranty*, not that you’ll need it.
Putting the Scoot and Ride Highwayfreak 3.0 to the Test
When I heard about the Scoot and Ride Highwayfreak 3.0, I wanted to put it to the rural Ontario road test. With a maximum body weight of 50KG (110lbs), Uncle Kevin gave it the ultimate test and it easily supported his 6’2″ frame. I also took it for a spin and felt like a kid again with both legs swung out to the side. If the birds could talk.
After a few falls here and there**, The Kids got the hang of how to adjust their weight and balance on one foot for a brief period. Not an easy feat in itself for a five year old and the speed with which they learned this skill was incredibly quick. I’m confident that the scooter will help them with their bike balancing skills.
The best part is that they can use it on our inner driveway negating the need to go out in the road and meaning that they can play on it all day every day. And for years to come because even though it’s recommended for up to age 5, the adjustable handlebar and durability means that this product will grow with The Kids for years to come. It can grow with your child too because Scoot and Ride is giving one away to one of my readers!
