Globber Scooters Review and WIN a Globber Scooter for Summer Holiday Fun! #SLHFeaturedThursdays


Summer means kids are home all over Australia for six great weeks of holiday fun. It's the time of year for leisurely days and plenty of active opportunities spent outdoors no matter what your children's ages. Kids will be everywhere the sun is shining this summer. Pray there's plenty of it!

With all that outdoor fun on bikes, scooters and go carts, it can be a bit of a battle keeping all the age ranges in this household happy. While the bigger kids in this home have bike riding skills and can zoom-off happily to the horizon, it's been a bit tricky until now, to keep the 'I want to keep up' toddler content with being left in the shadows!

The frustration in this age group is a stage all parents of multi-age siblings face with their youngest babes, but we've conquered it nicely with thanks to the newest addition to our home - a Globber scooter.


Prior to owning a Globber, if you'd told this mama of six that a child as young as two could almost immediately learn to ride on their own, well... I'd have thought you were bat-poop crazy!

Over the years I've looked-on as my (now) older children struggled to master their first set of serious wheels and the frustration and tantrums weren't pretty. Imagine my disbelief and joy at watching my youngest, (freshly three years old), conquer her newest set of real-wheels within mere minutes.

Feeling mighty proud and happy I can assure you and that's both of us!

 
Our Globber was warmly received a while back into the Six Little Hearts household. It was an incredibly easy vehicle to assemble. After an initial peek inside the box at the cutest little pink scooter, I was surprised to discover that there was no need to wait for dad to assemble it. (I can't recall that happening with any other vehicle we've owned around here, ever.)
 
The Globber slots together in one easy step and my daughter lit up like a Christmas tree when she spotted her new set of designer wheels, which look and behave just like the big versions her older siblings ride.
 
It's plus a wheel and minus the frustration!
 

Just look at that beaming confidence! I'd like to think I played a part in that, but no, that's all thanks to Globber! (The matching T-shirt and pink helmet provided by Globber certainly helped too.)

Globber scooters are brilliant because they are designed with the abilities of the youngest kids in mind. The two front wheels and single back wheel with a traditional foot brake, make mastering this ride so simple.

If your child can walk, your child can ride a Globber. It's as easy as that.


It wasn't long before my child had mastered a self-satisfying speed and even skills such as turning and braking on this scooter. They're certainly areas which will continue to develop with time but I can say that so far, my daughter is brimming with contentment at the impressive efforts she can do right now.

For a young child, keeping up with the siblings and keeping up with all those important appearances, means everything to a developing confidence in the world and the Globber is definitely helping my littlest to 'win' in so many ways.


 
 
The scooter featured here is the Globber MyFree Up. This model is suitable for kids from the age of three onwards up to a maximum of 50kgs. The secret to the success kids can achieve while riding this scooter lies in some well designed features.
 
The Globber features a steering lock system to make learning safe and easy. (It's the big round button on the front of the deck.) There's a height-adjustable T-Bar handlebar which adjusts to three height options as your child grows. (From 67.5cms - 77.5cms.) Finally, the X-Cross design in the deck of all Globber scooters, strengthens the structure of the vehicle overall and allows the seamless directional turning in the handlebars. It may be jargon to the little ones, but it all adds up to happy kiddos on the pavement.
 
Whoosh!


Globber scooters feature a low deck so that children ride close to the ground which increases the safety aspect and makes this an easy ride with less fatigue for little legs. There are ergonomic soft handlebar pads too, to help prevent tiny hands from slipping. (For more specific details, please refer to the Globber website.)


Children outside of this age range have not been left out of the Globber fun. For the five plus age group, there's the Globber MYTOO Fix as well as the Globber MyFREE Fixed and MyFREE 4-in-One with a detachable seat for the very youngest to choose from. There's even Globbers for adults!


The Globber myFREE UP scooter pictured in this review, retails on the Globber website for $130. Choose from a colour range of dark blue, green, pink, purple and red.

This is a total pleasure to ride, (according to my thrilled toddler) and as a parent, this vehicle gives such great peace of mind and freedom from the dreaded frustrated toddler episodes!

We at Six Little Hearts are pleased to recommend this fantastic scooter without hesitation.

  1. One scooter and two kids don’t mix,
    Waiting their turn means naughty tricks!
    One more Globber would mean friendly play,
    And two tired kids at the end of the day!

  2. I would love this for my grandson Mason. His Pa is called Scooter by the family so Mason needs his own scooter! (LuciaSaal)

  3. Both of my older girls have scooters, but their cousin doesn't. It leads to a LOT of arguments and tears, and often the scooters are packed away. I'd love to win this prize to give him his own scooter and keep the peace!

  6. Would love to win a red Globber MyFREE UP Scooter as it'll encourage outdoor activities. This scooter sounds great too as even a newly 3 year old can teach herself how to ride it. (I have no sense of balance so I can't teach how to ride one). This will also force me to get out and get some overdue exercise after my recent baby and the food baby I'm going to get after Christmas.

  10. I'd love a Globber scooter because last Christmas we bought our son a cheap one and to be honest it's been not worth the small amount of money we spent on it - rubbish quality.

  11. Sarah Ellwood -
    We are a pretty outdoorsy family so I'm always looking for things that the kids can utilise both at home and when we are out camping. I like that theirs three height positions, because it is something that can be shared between the children - Perfect at a campsite. I am also excited to know Globber have adult scooters - how cool! I might need a bit of practice first, it's certainly been a few years since I've been on a scooter!

  12. I'd love the scooter so the young miss could keep up under her own steam...time waits for no man, and neither do big boys!

  13. I have a two year old that wants his big brothers Scooter and I am tired of the horrendous squabbles that go on about it. Another will really help a Mumma out here and I'm loving these. I would happily have a blue Globber Fix but I am in awe of the 4in1 range!!! The seat! Genius! Vicki Vick (Doak on Google Plus) from Knocked Up & Abroad

  23. I love these little scooters, what a pretty pink for a little girl too, I bet mine would love it! I would love to win this scooter for my little girl. She is super active and always has been, I find it hard to entertain her indoors because she gets so easily bored, but we don't have many fun activities for her to do outdoors. My little toddler would adore zipping around on this gorgeous Gobbler Scooter!

  24. These scooters are just fantastic and I have a toddler just the right age for one. She watches her brother as he rides his scooter to school and she giggles hysterically as he speeds off ahead. I know she just wants to copy him.

  25. would be able to get to the shops a lot quicker if my son was on this rather than dragging along behind.

  42. This little beauty is ergonomically sound,
    With brakes and steering lock it's the safest ride in town.
    My daughter can ride for many years to come,
    Adjustable height means more ages can have fun!
    When she's done she can hand it down to my littler ones,
    A Globber Scooter in the house will make for a very happy Mum :)

    But he thinks he is capable of what his sister can do,

    On her scooter,
    And that makes a happy mummy!

  55. We are anxiously awaiting baby number 2,
    We are so very excited to add to our crew.
    Our gorgeous big boy is 4 years old,
    He thinks finally getting a sibling is pure gold!
    A new challenge awaits us of getting out and about,
    The dark blue Globber would be perfect there is no doubt.
    Our son could ride alongside-stable and near,
    He'd feel very mature and I'd venture without any fear!
