Take a look at this beauty – a wooden scooter that’s so hip, it hurts.
I spied this fabulous toy at a recent trade fair in Melbourne and was instantly won over by its classic charms. Then I found out how much it cost and nearly fell over.
This beautiful scooter, crafted from eco-friendly rubberwood and embossed with only natural paints and varnishes, retails for a mere $95. Yes, hard to believe, isn’t it? I think I’ll take one for all three of my kids and maybe one or two for their cousins too…
Called the Debut Scooter, it’s from wooden toy maker I’m Toy and has only just arrived in Australia. And I think it’s a safe bet to say these natty red trimmed scooters with their rubber-edged wheels will be coming to a footpath near you very, very soon.
The scooter is impressively sturdy but still best for children three years and up. If you’re wanting a stylish ride for the toddler set, take a look at the Quad Bike Ride On below. Something like a trike version of the ever-so-trendy balance bikes, this little ride will have toddlers from eighteen months zooming along via old-fashioned foot power in no time. The seat is adjustable so it can grow with your child until they hit preschool.
To find a stockist for the Debut Scooter or Quad Ride On in your corner of Australia, contact Artiwood Toys. You can also buy direct from Artiwood Toys’ retail site, where the scooter costs $95 and the ride on $99, plus a little extra for delivery.
