When you hear the words “kick scooter,” the first thing that comes to mind is probably your kid’s scooter that is currently on the front porch, but there is a lot more to it. Kick scooters are now more than just a fun toy for kids.
A Different Way to Get Around
This generation is thankfully trying to give back to the planet and finding clean ways to get from point A to point B, and kick scooters are a green way to travel short distances and stay active at the same time.
A Fun Way to Stay Active
If you are thinking this is not for you, think of the health benefits and the fun factor. A kick scooter could help you to stay active and healthy while having fun. There, I said it. It’s fun!
While many people are conscious about the importance of staying active, they dread the exercising part of the equation. But unless you have a magic wand, you need to actually move and exercise in order to get fit.
The good news is that spending a couple of hours in the gym is not the only way to get moving and get fit. Something as simple as walking or taking a kick scooter for a ride is also a very good way to exercise.
Don’t Care for the Fitness Part?
I am not sure there is anyone who would not appreciate a good way to exercise and have a little fun at the same time, but if by chance this is your case, think of the fun factor. Everyone loves having fun, and if you have a kid with a kick scooter, it can be a really fun way to bond.
The Right Scooter Makes a Big Difference
It is a fact that different individuals have different needs and preferences when choosing the right kick scooter. This little quiz can help you chose the best option for you.
In my case, I decided to go with a wide deck scooter. The wide deck provides me with a more comfortable position when I’m scooting around with my daughter because I can have both feet on the scooter. Because this was my first time on a kick scooter, I really needed an easy way to start.
There are many kick scooters on the market, but of course, not all of them are made the same, and quality and durability are something to consider when looking for an adult scooter. Weight and portability were an also a key element for me because I wanted something that I could just throw in the back of the car and take with me to the park or anywhere I needed to without taking up all the storage space in the trunk.

I can say that I have found the perfect scooter for me, and I can tell you that this would make a really nice holiday gift for the adults on your list who like the outdoors and are looking for a fun way to move around.
