Clean clothes and mud. Knees and grazes. Fingers and nostrils. Kids and wheels. The two always seem to go hand in hand, so here are our top picks of scooters, bikes, skates and wheels for kids in Singapore!
Having the kids strapped to the back of your bike might be fun, but at some point, your wriggly little ones will also want a set of wheels to call their own. Especially if trips to the park are a regular family event. Whether you’re looking for a bike, scooter or skates, check out our handy guide on where all the best wheels are in Singapore before you start your shopping expedition.
Where to buy the best wheels (scooters, skates, and bikes) for kids in Singapore
Excellent for scooting to school or cruising down the Singapore River or East Coast pathways, our top pick of scooters for kids in Singapore is the 3-wheeler Mini-Micro ($150) for little ones. Micro Scooters grow with your child and have loads of fun accessories too (like bags and LED lights!) to jazz up your little ones ride. If you aren’t fussed about the brand, you can also check out Decathlon and Toys R Us for scooters.
2. Little Tikes Cozy Coupe
The Little Tykes Cozy Coupe is a mandatory purchase for little ones as they’ll love using their feet to propel themselves around a la the Flintstones or replace the floorboard so they can rest their feet while you push from behind. Easily manoeuvrable and perfect for both indoor and outdoor play, it comes complete with a cup holder for your little one’s juice box and a gas cap that actually opens. There’s also a Grow’n’Up version available at Toys R Us
3. Wheely Bug
How adorable are these cute, zippy, ride-on ‘bugs’ from The Better Toy Store that can ‘fly’ across from one end of the room to the other? Designed using a variety of insects and animals as inspiration (the piggy is our fave!), they come with safety handlebars so that kiddos can control their movement at all times. Once they master staying on, there’ll be no stopping them.
A bit like an old-fashioned go-kart, with the EzyRoller you need to sit back and use your feet in a ‘right-left’ motion to propel forward. It moves in a fun zig-zag manner, and while it might take you twice the amount of time to get somewhere, it will surely keep kids aged four to 14 years old amused for hours.
The LIKEaBIKE was created to help kids master balance, steering and control before learning how to padel. Lightweight and great for toddlers up to five years old, this bike aims to bypass conventional bikes with training wheels and encourage the kiddos to jump straight to big bikes.
6. Iimo foldable tricycle
A great first bike with a lockable front wheel, the iimo foldable tricycle (available on Amazon) allows you to steer using the parent handle at the back, as your little one gets more confident on the paddle. Another plus, it’s foldable, which means it’s easily transportable.
Once your mini daredevils get going on this board, available from Amazon, it’ll seem like it’s permanently glued to their feet. Ideal for kids 8 years old and over, the spiked traction pad makes it easier to balance and ride on compared to a skateboard. The concave design also allows for improved footing, so your kiddo can be confident when learning skating tricks.
8. Hauck Batman Go Cart Kart
Since we’re on the topic of wheels, we can’t leave out the classic go-kart, that you can find on Amazon. Featuring a sporty three-point steering system and rubber-encased wheels, kids aged four to eight will love zipping up and down the neighbourhood in this four-wheel ride. The bucket seat is adjustable to ensure a good fit, plus it comes with an eight-ball designed brake system that makes it easier for children to stop when needed.
