Scooters are a great way to help children keep active whilst developing balance, co-ordination and confidence. And, they certainly speed up journeys for kids, the adults accompanying them - and even for commuting big kids getting about the city!

You can pick up a kids' scooter for as little as £20. However, top end models can come in closer to £100. For your extra money, you'll get a lighter design that's more robust.
