Most children start by walking while straddling their Boot Scoot. When they become more comfortable, they will begin to sit on the seat, push themselves forward, and maintain balance with both feet. As they learn to balance on their own, they will begin to lift their feet for short distances. Before long, they’ll be cruising along and you’ll have to quicken your pace just to keep up. Some children take a few days, others a few weeks to get the hang of it. No matter how long it takes, your child will have fun learning to ride their Boot Scoot.
Boot Scoots are designed for children ages 2 through 6. A more specific indication that your child is ready to start riding is their inseam. The seat height of our smaller model, the Zoomer, adjusts from approximately 14”-17” with a quick-release collar. Most children are ready to ride either on or soon after their second birthday. The Cruiser’s seat adjusts from 17”-20” and it weighs a little more, making it perfect for slightly older children, typically ages 3-6. If your child’s inseam is at least 14”, they are ready to ride! The maximum recommended weight is 80 lbs.
