Parents' Choice Foundation: Reviewing Children's Media Since 1978



Fall 2015 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Manufacturer: Radio Flyer, Inc.
Price: $49.99

Kids love to personalize things. From staking a claim (that's mine!) to decorating bedrooms and playthings. Radio Flyer has echoed the customization movement with the Build-A-Scooter line. Via the online tool, the three wheel scooter can be customized by first choosing from one of four base colors, and from two coordinating patterns for the deck. Additional features are optional and fun (a bell, streamers, speed activated light up wheels) and cost more. All versions (the company cites 250 possible combinations) comes fully equipped with a foot brake, adjustable handlebar, and soft foam hand grips.

Our testers reported easy assembly, a bit of a riding learning curve (leaning, not steering to turn), and flat out fun once balance and turning were mastered.
