We (and more importantly, our 4 year old daughter) were really excited to be asked to review a range of scooter accessories from Scooterearz.
We were sent the Scooterearz themselves (a kind of warm glove fixed to the scooter handles), along with a scooter bag (Bagz) and a reflective sticker set (Reflectz), all in a lovely pink flower theme.
Chloe loves to scoot, not least because her big sister is so quick on her bike these days, and Chloe finds it far easier to keep up with her on a scooter than on her own bike.
First impressions were great. Chloe loved the flower theme and general pinkness of these products, and we loved that they appeared to be great quality items.
The Scooterearz are really well stitched together, are made from a thick, durable material and feature a lovely warm fluffy inside, perfect for keeping little hands warm. They are an absolute doddle to fit to the scooter; they simply slide over the handlebars and they’re on. The child then pops their hands inside and they’re away. Chloe really loved this product, and it saves umpteen pairs of lost gloves. They made her scooter look really smart, and we’ve had several comments in the park asking where they came from, so it seems lots of other parents are also a little fed up of their kids complaining of cold hands.
The material is great quality, and has survived the inevitable scooting, throwing the scooter to the ground, picking up and repeating. They’re really easy to take off (they’re not a permanent fit) and we’ve also run them through the washing machine and they’ve come out as good as new. Brilliant 🙂
Chloe has also really enjoyed having a flower bag on her scooter. It is pretty much a universal fit, and it also fits all of the bikes and trikes that we have in the garden. It is really secure when fitted – it’s fixed with Velcro straps so again is easily removed at the end of the day. The kids have used it on their adventures collecting pine cones in the park as well as ferrying various dollies and trinkets around with them. Just as with the Scooterearz, the material and stitching is great quality, and the zip is lovely and smooth.
Finally, we received the Reflectz – a reflective, flower patterned sticker that is designed to be cut to size and wrap about the vertical part if the T bar of the scooter. Unfortunately, Chloe wouldn’t let us stick it to her beloved Minions scooter, so her big sister claimed it for her bike.
It’s a really simple, pretty, self-adhesive sticker with silver reflective properties. We wrapped part of it around Abigail’s cross bar on the bike, then with what was left, we cut out individual flowers and stuck them the metal part of her handlebars. She’s absolutely delighted with her new ‘blinged’ bike, and the stickers haven’t peeled at all, in spite of us occasionally leaving the bike out in the rain.
These really are top quality products, the kids have really loved testing them out.
A well-deserved 5/5, and two happy little girls.
RRP: £12.99 (Handwarmers), £12.99 (Bagz) and £4.99 (Reflectz)
