Lockdown has been really beneficial in some ways over the last 12 months. I can’t believe I’m writing this but there has to be some positives right? All my children have had practising scooting and biking. My 2 year old is a whizz on a scooter and a balance bike and my then 3 year old, learnt to ride a bike in the first lockdown. My middle daughter’s scooter has been firmly stolen by her baby brother and this has meant time for a new one. We were in complete luck when Skates.co.uk got in touch, offering a review of this amazing Hangup Outlaw III Kids Stunt Scooter and SFR Skate Scooter Helmet. Both perfect to get my daughter increasing her scooting skills, whilst keeping her safe!
She quite likes being physical – we have just been told she is pretty good at school. She gets outdoors and gets stuck in! I was really keen to let her get going on her new scooter.

Riding the Hangout Outlaw III Kids Stunt Scooter
My daughter found this Hangout Outlaw III Kids Stunt Scooter a little faster than her previous one. It is, as has only 2 wheels and is smaller. Of course designed for stunts. She was a little small for this but hopefully with a bit more practice, she may be able to start with a few tricks. Bear in mind this, in case your little one starts bombing away, as it does move!
However, she found it easy to control and steer and could use the brake at the back. I felt it wasn’t a huge jump moving from her old 3-wheel scooter to this one. She is 4, almost 5, so it was the perfect time for her to move to a more grown up one.
The scooter does make a noise as it moves, almost like you can “hear the metal” which sounds crazy but true. However, it’s sturdy with easy grip for small hands.
I’m looking forward to watching her practice on this Hangout Outlaw III Kids Stunt Scooter and improve her skills!

My daughter loved the the SFR Scooter Helmet, mainly as she loves green! She chose the small size and we did measure her head beforehand.
It fit her really well, and she does have quite a wide head! She said it was comfortable, My husband quite easily adjusted the straps for her to make it safe. I was happy that it meet British and European safety standards, as mentioned above.
The helmet does come with some additional padding for the inside, if required but we didn’t use.
It looks great, is sturdy and comfortable and I felt glad my daughter had it when on the scooter, especially as it is one that moves a little faster!
Overall we were really impressed with the products from Skates.co.uk.
We have been sent sturdy, safe products that will allow my daughter to move onto a more mature scooter and possibly practice more tricks as she becomes more confident.
Perfect to get outdoors and keep active.
