Yvolution YFlyer Scooter
The Yvolution YFlyer is Outside Fun the Kids Can’t Resist!
Your kids WILL get outside and play. They WILL drop the video game controllers, tablets, and the cell phones. They WILL beg to ride the new Yvolution YFlyer Scooter!
What is the YFlyer Scooter by Yvolution? It’s the coolest outside toy this year! It’s a scooter that is propelled by your child’s own energy. Much like an elliptical machine we would use for exercise, the YFlyer has the same stepping action, except for stationary exercise, the kids can propel themselves down the sidewalk, around the yard, or up and down the driveway. This is the neatest toy since the original scooter.
I wasn’t so sure how my kids would react to this scooter because they are in the tween/teenager years. Getting them outside is practically impossible. I mean, they will go outside to take the garbage out, but they come right back in and plop right back in their chairs to watch internet videos or whatever it is they do with their electronics. But, the day the scooter was delivered, they wanted it put together immediately! They wanted to go outside to try it out.
Trust me, we tried the thing inside, but you need a larger area than the kitchen to get some speed. Oh, and balance, your child will need to balance themselves on it in order to go. But, in less than 2 minutes, they will be zipping up and down the driveway like my kids.
The Yvolution YFlyer is designed for kids 7 years old and older. It is also approved for a maximum of 154 pounds…that means that parents under this weight can jump on and try it out too! I think the hardest thing for the kids to do was wait for it to be put together.
This is where I say, please make sure you tighten the handle well. Our handle kept sliding down and the front wheel wouldn’t turn. But this is solely my fault for not securing the bolt tight enough. It was actually kind of funny. My son, who, unfortunately, is extremely clumsy (I think he gets it from his dad…) kept falling into the hedge bush. He’s such a good sport about things, (he definitely gets that from ME) he would laugh and get back up to do it again.
Once the handle was correctly tightened, both kids took turns riding it. And not just the day it came, they have ridden it every sunny day after school since. It really is great to see them outside, enjoying the nice fall weather.
