When the good folk at Globber Scooters asked if my boys would like to road test their MyFREE UP and MyTOO Fix Up scooters, we jumped at the chance. Anyone that has been following along for a while would know how much my kids love the skate park; and what a crazy little stuntman my 6 year old boy is!
I confess to having fallen into the trap of buying ridiculously low price scooters from the big retail giants, only to find myself replacing them a few months down the track due to missing wheel nuts, broken axles and busted steering. When my kids ride, they RIDE. Crashing, banging, jumping, spinning - they function at a hundred miles an hour and play with the gusto of a child at Christmas time - every single day. These are the kids you WANT to test the durability of your products!
The Globber Scooters didn't disappoint. They are sleek looking, sturdy and to my pleasant surprise EXTREMELY quiet! No more da-doong da-doong da-doong of the scooter as the kids ride laps around the house!
Master Four is riding the MyFREE UP 3-wheeler and his is LOVING it. In his words:
"It is the best scooter in the world and thank you for making a blue one because I really love blue. And thank you for putting two wheels on the front and one on the back because that's what I wanted so that I could ride it faster. It is really easy to ride and I like how it is quiet. My favourite thing about the scooter is that it is blue...and fast."

Master Six is riding the MyTOO Fix Up 2-wheeler and in his words:
"It's a-MAZING! I really love it because it is really quiet and cool. And I like it because it is really fast and it's better than my other scooter because it is easier to go down the tongues on the skate ramps. It is easy to turn and to do jumps with, and I really like the see-through wheels."

Suffice to say, the scooters have been heavily road-tested, and they pass with flying colours. Unlike other brands I've bought, I have full faith that these scooters will last the distance and be around long enough to grow with my children (as they are designed to do). Both boys are on the lowest height setting of the three available, so there's plenty of room to grow. And with the 2-wheeler being load-rated to 100kg I even took it for a spin! What a fast, smooth ride! I might just have to buy one myself so that I can keep up with the boys! What's that saying? "Life is a beautiful adventure - enjoy the ride" - I was sure enjoying the wind in my hair and the youthful smile on my face for those few minutes! ;)
