Rockboard Scooter AND Getting Kids Playing Back Outside!
We received a complimentary Rockboard Scooter for this review and inclusion in our Holiday Gift Guide. Please see our disclosure below.
I don’t know about you but I have very fond memories of playing outside when I was younger. We would play outside from the time we would wake up until it was dark outside! I rarely remember our parents telling us we had to get outside!
Now though things are different. It seems every parent I talk to constantly bring up the same sentence. “I have an awful time getting the kids to go outside”.
Do I understand that sentence? I really do! If I had the electronics that my oldest has, I wouldn’t want to leave my room either!
When we look at gifts for our kids, we actually do consider if we think they will actually use it or if it is a fad that will last about two seconds. Because let’s face it, toys and gifts are not cheap! I have no problem paying good money for products as long as they are quality made products.

Our overall review is that this is a very sturdy and well made product. Both my husband and my 14 yr old daughter have tried the Rockboard Scooter out for this review.
A helmet is a must while your child is riding the scooter. Below are some images of my oldest riding the scooter. I love how this is a scooter where they actually have to use the muscles in their legs! They get to have fun plus exercise!
This was very easy to assemble and collapses down so you can transport it in your vehicle. J at first was a little nervous on it but after a few tries she was able to get her balance on it.
This would be a really cool present to have under the tree!
