As part of the Toyologist programme Boo was sent a Hello Kitty Black In-line Scooter & Hello Kitty Black Cycle Helmet to review. I really don’t think they could have found better products for Boo to try because 1, she absolutely LOVES Hello Kitty and 2, her own scooter broke just days before they arrived!
Boo is rather thrilled with her new scooter and has been busy bombing around everywhere on it. Her old scooter was similar but it had two wheels at the back so she was a bit unsure at first as this one only has one at the back but it didn’t take her long to get used to it. As you can see on the handles in the photo above Bugs decided to take a bite out of the foam; he did this the day that she got it – Boo was distraught obviously! So please be aware they are not toddler with teeth proof 😉
One thing I’m not that happy with is that the stickers are bubbling and peeling already. As you can see in the photos below the Hello Kitty design where the feet go is bubbling and the stickers around the folding mechanism are peeling at the edges.
It has height adjustable handles so that it can grow with your little one. Boo is big for a five year old and I usually buy her clothes for an 8 year old; she is only on the second notch so she still has plenty growing room which is great!
The scooter also folds flat which is great as I always carry it on the buggy when I go and fetch her from school so that she can ride it home.
The scooter is currently half price on the Toysrus website for just £14.99 – I would definitely pay this and even at full price it is a great purchase!
The recommended age is 5+ but minimum age is 3 years and maximum weight 50kg
Boo loves having a helmet the matches her scooter… although she is now after a bike to match them both lol! The helmet is a good fit and seems pretty sturdy! I think at £16.99 it is good value for money! Obviously I cannot vouch for how safe it is as with all safety gear you never know that until they are in an accident or something. I found the straps easy to adjust and Boo found it very comfortable to wear 🙂
One thing I will say about the helmet is that Toys R Us states that it is 52-56cm but the label states 50-54cm.
Both of these items can be bought at ToysRus.co.uk
