When Cody was little he always wanted a scooter, one of those scooters that fold up and can be put away. We were too poor to get one for a long time and eventually he got one from Gramma. His face lit up so bright and whenever he could bring it on a walk (we lived in the city) he would bring it along. Eventually he grew too old for the small board and we gave it to another family, but I remembered the day he got that scooter and how happy he was.
Rockboard Scooters are an amazing new type of scooter. They’re not just kick scooters and they aren’t mechanical, they’re powered by rocking your feet back and forth! This is just fascinating. More than that they are for bigger kids too! When given the chance to review the Rockboard Scooter I kept it a secret and on the day it arrived I asked Cody to go get the package outside. He is used to me getting a lot of packages so he slumped his shoulders, sighed and went to the porch. The look on his face when he saw the Rockboard box was priceless. He told me after he opened it that it was like Christmas morning.
The Rockoard Scooter is very easy to assemble. It took Cody perhaps 15 minutes, although he was in quite an excited hurry to get it together and go outside.

All the neighborhood kids want a Rockboard now and thankfully they also have a Mini Rockboard for 5+ year old’s because some of the kids are small. It’s a wonderful thing to see him riding the scooter outside since it has always been difficult getting him to go outside and have fun. He is generally a video game geek, but he loves this Rockboard Scooter and the fact that we can fold it up and take it with us on trips is just great. Judah can ride in his little red car and Cody on the Rockboard and I and my husband can briskly walk watching them in their delight. With summer at its peak this is the perfect gift for any child and one that I am sure will bring an overwhelming sense of joy to their faces when they see it.
You can buy the Rockboard Scooter for $182.67. This would also make one amazing Christmas present!
