Micro scooters | Taking parents off the sidelines and into the action

Picture the scene! You are walking out to the park, the sun is shining, the sky is blue, and you are feeling pretty good about things. Your hands are free, your children are off in front of you with their wind in their hair, and they are whizzing around on their scooters. Laughter is all you hear, and a smile comes across your face. Oh to be young and to feel that little rush of speed on a scooter like your children. So what is stopping you?

We are always doing what we can to give our children what they want in need in life. Hope many times do we hear scooters on a birthday or Christmas list, and then let’s not forget the accessories such as safety equipment and helmets. Whether it is a two-wheeled kids scooter or the latest eclectic scooter craze, there is so much choice out there these days.

The truth is many parents are always on the sidelines when it comes to the fun aspect of it, aren’t they? If they are not carrying everything using every part of their body while their kids are having fun they are sat watching them enjoy themselves. Sure the quiet and peace can be nice, for a while. But adults, parents, can get in on the fun as well. Why wouldn’t you want to take a family trip out on your scooters? Or maybe taking advantage of the speed and ease that a scooter can give you when it comes to running small errands.

If you have been considering a Micro scooters for yourself for some time, but haven’t managed to justify it, then here are some of the reasons why you might want to get in on the action. 

What do you need?

One of the first things you need to think about is exactly what you need to embrace this new potential hobby in your life. So let’s discuss some of the things you need to consider. 

The scooter

First and foremost you need to find the right scooter for you. This is going to be a different retail experience from what you might be used to when it comes to buying your children their scooters. While they may be more focused on whether it is the right colour, for an adult scooter you might want to consider other things such as the feel and suspension. Making sure you try them out and read plenty of reviews to ensure that the purchase you make is the right one for you. 

The safety aspect

Another thing to think about would be the safety side of things. For our children, we may be very focused on this. Ensuring they have the helmet, the knee and elbow pads just in case there is an accident. You may not think it is important for you but it is just as essential to make sure that you are protected as well. A helmet and pads will help you in those nearly days as you get used to manoeuvring the scooter. 

How can you make the most out of your scooter?

Now that you have fully embraced the purchase and got your scooter, you might be raring to go and wondering exactly how you can make the most out of it. So here are a couple of ideas to inspire you. 

Family trips out and about 

Let’s start with one of the obvious ways that you can enjoy a scooter as an adult. Surely it is having fun with your children? Usually, you may head to the park walking while your children scoot away, but now you can all jump on your scooters and head out from your front door. It might be that you choose to explore your local area or head to your local park. It is a great way to spend some time. Maybe choosing to scoot somewhere instead of your usual walk. You will be surprised by how much area you could cover doing this and it is such a fun way to jazz up your usual weekend walks. 

Fun at the skate park 

Your children may frequent the skate parks when they are using their scooters, and so this is where you can have some of the best fun you have had in a long time. You may look at the skate park, the ramps and obstacles and think it looks easy. But it is harder than it looks that is for sure. It takes skill, balance and practice to get it right. But instead of sitting back and watching your children tackle it, you can give it a go yourself. It could be something that you all enjoy doing together. 

How easy it is to get that pint of milk

Gone are the days where you have to walk to the shops, now you can scoot to the shops. Think about how easy it is to get that pint of milk you desperately need, or that bottle of wine or emergency BBQ food for when the weather turns out great. Heading to the shops can often feel like a battle when you need something urgently. Some people might not even have the opportunity to walk to the shops, whereas having a scooter could mean they are much more accessible and saves you from jumping in the car. 

Transform your staycations

Last, of all, it is worth noting that many people are choosing to stay in the UK for their holidays and embracing the great outdoors. Whether it is camping, caravaning, or heading out on a road trip, the staycation is rather appealing right now. Scooters for your children will likely be essential items. They fold down small and they are an easy way to keep them occupied while you are away. Transform your holiday by getting involved as well? It can be a great way to explore new surroundings and have so much fun on holiday. Plus you also get the convenience of the other factors we have mentioned, especially nipping to a shop when you need it the most. 

Hopefully, this has given you some inspiration and cemented a decision to get yourself an adult scooter and have a lot of family fun this summer.
