Summer Fun with Skitter Ride on Toys! *Review & Giveaway*

I was just introduced to a fun ride on toy for kids. It is called a Skitter. Well, I say for kids, but the Skitter is good for ages 18 months all the way to 81 years.

History

We are an American Company based in Southern California owned by parent company WCNGroup. SkitterToys is the original Online Toy Store that retails exclusively the Skitter ride on toy car since 2003. We have upgraded wheels, spare parts, toy awards, education, safety, events and many, many testimonies from Skitter fans from all over the country including including Alaska and Hawaii.

Skitter_blue_sHow is the Skitter different from other ride on toys that are similar?

As the original online source for the best toy, we continue to test all similar ride on toys to the Skitter and discuss in more detail in our FAQs and Counterfeits pages. But we do not want to waste your time on why other toy stores sell the Plasma Car or similar looking ride on toys, we just want to continue providing you with the Superior Customer service, price and ride on toy for kids today, the Skitter.

How about toy safety?

We have been assured by our manufacturer that our products are Lead Free. As our loyal customers know, we are parents first and safety is our number priority. Our children play on their Skitters daily, not just because we have them, but they truly enjoy the best ride on toy in the world.

What ages is the Skitter for?

We have seen kids as young as 18 months all the way up to an 81 year old Grandmother. From our experience, kids ages 2 and up enjoy the Skitter. We used to give our recommendation for what colors girls like and what colors boys like, at this point we have given up. We try to encourage the buyer to find out what colors the child likes then make the choice. Having the upgraded wheels not only adds significant performance but also another color choice.

Here is a video of Tucker’s first time on the Skitter. He is still learning it and really enjoys it!

I like the Skitter because of the way it is made. Kambry is 20 months old and can ride on it, as well as Tucker, who is almost 4, can ride on it as well. The kids will push off with their feet, while turning the steering wheel handle, which gives them more power to go forward.

The Skitter is available in 6 colors. This is becoming a favorite in our house with the kids!

  4. I like that I can ride the Skitter! πŸ™‚ FUN!!!!!!

  5. I sent out a tweet ! mags1978 RE http://bit.ly/PMjJK

  6. I subscribe via email.

  7. I think my favorite part are the front stabilizing wheels, it doesn’t tip as easily! Thanks!

  8. I like the bright colors and the durability.

  9. Jennifer M says:

    I like the green skitter; it’d be great for both my son and daughter.

  10. Christy W. says:

    I really like that they are lead free.

  11. I love that it allows people up to 150 pounds to ride on it and would love it in blue.

  12. I love how smoothly it works and that kids don’t have to use their feet to push themselves forward. I also love the cute purple color.

  13. tung ton says:

    i like the purple one

  14. Amanda S. says:

    I like that it’s for all ages!

  16. Frances Mitchell says:

    I like the looks of this toy. I actually saw it in the Malvern Town Centre in Scarborough yesterday.

    My son actually has a bike of sorts that we put him on now and push him… what a burn in the back of my legs but he squeals with such delight when he’s on it, that I have no choice but to keep pushing. It’s probably the only toy that he cries when it’s time to come off.

    The skitter would be a step up, something that he can propel on his own and it’s eco friendly.

    I love all the colors but he would look great in Red!

    Thanks

  19. I love that the age range for a Skitter starts so young (18 months) and can be used at almost any age.

    Thanks

  20. I have your main button on my blog’s sidebar.

  21. I subscribe to your newsletter.

  22. This might sound silly, but I really like the fact that you can get replacement parts for the Skitter. So many toys and ride on vehicles have to be tossed if something breaks.

  23. I subscribe via e-mail.

  24. First off, it comes in the coolest colours – we’d likely choose the yellow one in our house. Also, love that it essentially can be used forever unlike most toys that kids outgrow size or developmental-wise in a year or two. It looks like so much fun!

  25. Kelly Ann T. says:

    I like the blue skitter because it will get the kids up and moving. It is self-propelled and that makes it great exercise.

  26. This looks way fun! I love the Purple Skitter! I’m glad to hear they are all lead free.

  27. Autumn B. says:

    love that they are eco friendly! i love the yellow one!

    Great idea!! It runs on kid power. I like the green skitter

  29. I have your button on my blog.

  31. I like the red skitter which would be perfect for my boy/girl twins. I LOVE that these are self propelled. I refuse to buy my kids mechanical ride-on toys because I think they are dangerous and contribute to obesity. My neighbors let their 2-year-old ride a large motorized jeep!

  32. I like that the Skitter is easily operated just be turning the wheel back and forth.

  33. impressed by the front stabilizer wheels- safe design

  34. I love these they are adorable. I’d love to get my son a green!

  35. Your button is on my blog

  36. I subscribe to your newsletter.

  37. Love the red Skitter. I think it would be great to help my son with his core muscle strengthening that we do with PT. Thanks for the opportunity.

  38. Mellissa says:

    I subscribe. I like the purple skitter.

  39. I love the different color choices.

  40. Mariah wall says:

    These are so much fun. My son loves them whenever we go to the toy store, he can’t get off. They are so easy to drive is what I love best. And yes, my hubby gets down and joins him in the fun, so it really is great for all ages. I would love to get him the green one, it’s a cool color and stays cleaner.

  41. The purple one will be a hit with my daughter and I love the fact that you can upgrade and get spare parts. Nothing is more frustrating than the favorite toy that breaks and you cant’s get parts.

  43. DEBIJOT says:

    I like the green one! They are so cute! thanks!

  48. This type of scooter is so awesome! It really helps kids with gross-motor skills (something important to me since one of my twins is getting PT!)
    The color RED would be nice & gender neutral for b/g twins!!

    Tweeted this find!

  49. Just found your site and I LOVE it! I do some product reviews of my favorite finds on my site from time to time and it’s so much fun!

    I love the Red Skitter! I would love to win it for my best friend’s two boys who I get to watch a couple times a week! They would love it!

  52. Cathy W. says:

    Self-propelled! What a great idea this is – no batteries, no buttons to push, no electronics – just plain old kid power. I love all the colors, but if I had to choose just one I guess it would be purple.

  53. I subscribe

  54. I like the purple one. I also like thay you can buy replacement parts

  55. Melissa Butler says:

    I adore the purple skitter since it is my fave color…though I would choose the red one since I have numerous nieces and nephews and our little ones gender is still unknown…everyone could share.

  56. Elizabeth M. says:

    I like the blue one and that many ages & sizes can ride it.

    I love that it could help improve my kids coordination and core strength… and that anyone could use it!

  60. Carol G says:

    The fact that it is self propelled is a great feature–it would teach coordination as well as being fun.

    My favorite is the green color.

  117. What a fun product! My son is 20 months and he LOVES riding on bikes or cars, but we haven’t been able to find something that really works for him. They are either too big (he can’t reach the pedals) or they are too wide (his feet get stuck under the wheels). I love that this is something that he could play with right now and still be able to play with many years down the road! No buying a new riding toy every year! I love the red skitter, but the greeen one is pretty fun too.

  118. I’m a suscriber. Thanks for the chance!

  119. I’d love to win a red one for my kids! My favorite aspect of the product is that it is made in the USA and is lead free.
