I cannot tell you how excited I was to get the chance to review the brand new M.Y. Rockboard Scooter! I tend to review a ton of women's and baby products, and my 11 year old some sometimes gets a little jealous, since there just aren't as many products for review that are geared towards older kids. So when I saw this amazing new concept in scooters, I knew this would be the perfect surprise for him!
First, let me tell you why the Rockboard Scooter is so unique. This is no ordinary scooter! The Rockboard is revolutionary because it is a 2-in-1 scooter. It can be used like a normal scooter that relies on the users foot pushing off of the ground repeatedly to gain momentum, or here's the really cool part...It can also be powered by literally rocking back and forth on the deck! This awesome scooter can also be folded down very easily for added portability. Our Rockboard Scooter even included a handy carry-bag so even while on the go, you're always ready for some Rockboard fun! The telescope downpipe with height adjustment lock on the scooter lets you adjust the handles to your exact height, and the comfort grip and aluminum alloy brake handle allow for hours of Rockboarding with perfect control on the pavement. The two-position locking joint for dual-mode scooter capability and easy folding lets you take it anywhere, and racing-inspired bearings keep your scooter rolling. How cool is that?!
Kyle was thrilled when the Rockboard Scooter arrived. He was very, very surprised! We were sent the Original Rockboard Scooter in Orange, and we couldn't wait to try it out. Luckily, it was super easy to assemble and adjusted effortlessly to the perfect height for my son. This scooter is ideal for bigger kids, although they do offer a mini model for kids 5+ (up to 90lbs). The Original Rockboard Scooter is actually great for adult use, too, as the height adjustment setting allow for even someone over 6 feet tall to easily ride! So Kyle will get years of enjoyment out of his scooter, because it will grow with him!
Once we watched the included DVD and Kyle understood the concept and how to adjust the Rockboard, we went outside to try it out. This scooter is so cool! Check out the Rockboard Scooter in action! Kyle is riding it in Rock Mode. Please keep in mind, it has been over 100 degrees here in Virginia, so he got pretty tired quickly. It is actually much easier than it appears...Just not in the sweltering heat!
As you can see, this scooter ROCKS! It goes very fast, and all without the riders feet ever making contact with the pavement. Unless, of course, you want them to. It adjusts to normal scooter mode very easily for more inexperienced or cautious riders. Kyle absolutely loves his Rockboard and is the envy of the neighborhood. Several kids have stopped and begged him to let them know where he got such a cool scooter! Of course, he just said "Because my mom has the coolest job in the world!" I thought that was cute!
Overall, we love the Rockboard Scooter. It's so unique, and is very easy to use. On top of that, it's very convenient to grab and go, and folds down to a very compact size. This scooter is also very well-constructed and durable. This is not cheaply made like some other conventional scooters on the market. I am so glad I stumbled upon Rockboard Scooters, and that they agreed to let me review this revolutionary new way to beat the street! It is entertaining to watch, fun to ride, and is a great way to make sure kids get their exercise. Plus, I think the Rockboard just earned me the Mom Of The Year Award from my very happy son! It just doesn't get any better than that!
