Bubble Scooter Review

When I was a child I had a scooter it was metal and I loved it I thought it was the best scooter around. I played for hours on it zooming from one friends house to another, we all had scooters. My little boy has just got his first scooter and he loves it. The excitement started when there was a loud knock at the door Jared and the dog went running to the door (as they do all the time) and a big box was handed to me. The first part I pulled out of the box was a wheel and that was Jared squealing and shouting "Beep Beep". Anything that has wheels is a beep beep to Jared and scooter is a bit of a tricky word for him to say. 

We were sent a Rocket Bubble Scooter to enjoy and review from the lovely people at Fun 4 Kids. It comes in two colours blue and pink, of course we got the blue one although I'm sure Jared would of equally loved it in pink. The blue scooter comes with a little bag that attaches to the front via Velcro, great for keeping some little snacks in after dashing about. The pink scooter comes with a basket perfect for popping a doll or teddy or snacks. 


It took about 15 minuets to put it all together, the instructions are pretty basic and you have a picture guide to show you how to do it. What took me the longest was putting the back wheels on as I couldn't figure out which way they went, but having a very excited little boy picking bits up and repeatedly shouting "beep beep" didn't help. With the scooter put together the fun started! We filled the back with bubble mixture which is supplied, and turned the fan on. At first there was a wait for the bubbles, they soon shot out. Which I have tried to capture on my phones camera you can see the stream of bubbles.



This is where the dog got to have her fun chasing bubbles and popping them. Most of the toys Jared has he tries to give to Rosie so she can play with him, unfortunately Rosie can't push cars or build with mega blocks. We now have something that they both love playing with, Jared was pushing the scooter around and Rosie was running after the bubbles. It was great to see them playing together and having such a great time. We have been to a few places and let Jared have a play with scooters and he struggled with them, some were too heavy for him to move others handles didn't adjust low enough for him. The rocket bubble scooter is perfect it is lightweight plus the height can be changed. The wheels are made of like a rubber rather then plastic so should last a good time, I find the plastic wheels are loud and often break quickly. 


I honestly would recommend this to any parent who is looking for a scooter for their child. The bubbles make it more like a motorbike/scooter and every child always wants to be able to relate their toy to something. When I was young my scooter was in my mind like a scooter that adults would ride, my bike was a motorbike with playing cards pegged so the spokes would make that motorbike noise. This scooter has just helped spark the imagination that little bit more, and what child doesn't want bubbles flying behind them as the zoom along. You can purchase your Rocket Bubble Scooter from the website in either pink or blue for the fab price of £29.95.
