Original Rockboard Scooter Review + Giveaway (Holiday Gift Guide)

With Christmas right around the corner, scooters are sure to be on the wish lists of many children this holiday season.  With so many kids scooters to choose from, it's difficult to know which ones are sure to be a hit and which ones are made to last and grow with your child.
 
The Rockboard Scooter has got to be the coolest and most unique scooter out there!  I know that I haven't seen another one like it anywhere!  The faster you "ROCK" your body back and forth, the faster you're going to go.  This scooter makes you work for your speed but it's so much fun!  This is the perfect way to get your child to exercise without them even realizing it!

I was beyond excited when I received a Rockboard Scooter as part of my holiday gift guide.  I knew that my kids were going to have so much fun and that my readers were going to be thrilled!
 
I'll admit that I was a little nervous to let my children ride on a kids scooter for the very first time.  Both of my kids hopped right on and took off without even blinking an eye.  It's like they had been riding scooters all their lives, when in fact this was the first time for both of them!

Of course my husband had to get in on the action as well.  Let me just say that I think my husband had just as much fun riding it around as our children did!
 
I love that the handle bars are adjustable so the scooter can easily fit children (and adults) of all sizes.  It also has a kickstand!  Maybe the best part of all, it comes assembled and ready to rock the pavement!

The Rockboard Scooter is sturdy and durable making it easy to ride and built to last!  It also folds quickly and easily for easy transport and storage!  Whether you have a mini van, pickup or compact car - you can take it with you wherever you go!

Oh the joys of being a parent of two children who love speed and adventure and who have no fear!  The Rockboard Scooter is sure to be a hit among children of all ages - including adults.
 
About the Rockboard Scooter:
 
The biggest difference between the Rockboard Scooter and all the others is the fact that the  Rockboard is actually 2 scooters in 1! That’s right. Not only can you shred the pavement in “Rockboarding” mode, but with a few simple steps, you can transform the  Rockboard Scooter into a low-profile kick scooter machine!
 
The Rockboard Scooter is made out of aluminum and has two large wheels with urethane construction. It carries a maximum weight of 200 lbs.  Propulsion is achieved with each rock, wasting zero energy and allowing the scooter to reach speeds up to 10 mph. The patented Rockboard Scooter comes fully assembled and can be folded to a compact size for easy storage. 

The original Rockboard Scooter is recommended for kids ages 8 and over, while the mini Rockboard Scooter is recommended for kids ages 5 and over and up to 90 pounds.

You can buy the Rockboard Scooter online at Target, Amazon and Toys R US for $199.

They all look really fun, but I actually think the Original would be best for our family so both of my girls could use it!

Rebecca Parsons said...

My stepson would love the Rockboard Original. He has been asking for something similar to this and we have debated on getting it. It looks super fun though and I am sure he would love it.

Aimee Smart said...

My daughter is 8 years old and LOVES all things that are awesome and the Rockboard obviously meets those standards. I'm positive she would love the mini or original and I love that it is made to last unlike most products. The best part of Rockboard is that she is not just going to grow off from it. The Rockboard will get used longer do to the manufacturing and she will want to use it even as she gets older.

My kids would both love Rockboard Descender but I know that they would be over joyed with this scooter they would be fighting over it lol but this would make them happy.

I would get the RockBoard Mini for my daughter. She is very energetic and sporty, and although she is only 4 years old, I think she would really enjoy it. It looks like the perfect toy for her and the color choices are great.
