Getting your child out and about can be costly, from trike to micro scooter and the steps in between, giving your child some mobility can end up costing a pretty penny.
A solution may be at hand with this excellent bit of design from Globber.
The Globber ‘My Free’ 5-1 convertible 3 wheeled scooter has been designed to cover all the bases from a ride on ‘feet up’ push along trike to a fun to ride three wheeled scooter.
First – you are going to be pushing, so the Globber has a height adjustable handle for you and foot rests for your child.
Second – Take off the foot rests and your child can start to propel themselves, keep the handle on and everyone is happy.
Third – remove the handle and the foot rests and the Globber becomes a self propelled push along balance bike. Choose locked none steering handle bars or unlocked to steer. Remember this is the point were you run to catch up 🙂
Fourth – Take off the seat, insert the handle again but this time at the front and hey presto you have a scooter with built in foot brake at the back. More running for you!
Fifth – as your child grows you can adjust the height of the handle bars to suit. Even more running to keep up with them as they head off at warp speed.
This is one of those well designed products that works brilliantly plus it’s portable and easy to carry too. Although it looks like the Globber 5-1 is more or less constructed from plastic, the base has been design to conceal a sturdy reinforced aluminium frame.
Given the Globber has been design for children from 12 months through to 36 months or 20Kg / 44lbs max) I imagine you and your child are going to get a lot of fun for a good couple of years with this mode of transport.
Maybe this is the perfect solution for anyone who likes value for money and doesn’t want to drown under a sea of trikes, bikes and scooters.
The Globber 5-1 recently won The Best Baby and Infant Toy at the highly acclaimed German Spielwarenmesse 2016 Toy Awards. The jury said –
The jury was not only impressed with the design, but also how simply the product could be adjusted for the various stages, its high-quality finish and, last but not least, its value for money.
Globber may be relatively new to the market but the innovative approach of the Globber 5-1 along with the accessible price point, I think is going to be a sure fire winner with a lot of parents. Plus if you buy from the Globber website they deliver free in the UK too.
Certainly beats the old steel scooters from back in the day that’s for sure!
