I am thinking of getting my youngest a scooter as a first "bike". He is fascinated by them and I have read a number of posts suggesting starting with a scooter as it teach balance. He is not yet 3 (will be in August) but is super athletic. The only thing is that he is tiny--28 lbs or so.
My question is what type of scooter? I was at the toy store today and the option are pretty limitless. One that looked good was the Mini Traxx Scooter with pretty wide wheels.
Somewhere else I have read about useing the Razor type scooters with the tiny wheels. The only thing is that these aren't built for little ones so they may be too tall.
What have other people used? How has it worked?
Any advice would be very helpful.
