The best scooter for a 4 year old will depend on their height, build and confidence as to which scooter will be best. But whichever one you get I can definitely recommend a scooter as a great toy for a 4 year old if they haven't already got one.

​Both my boys use their scooters practically everyday.

The Razor scooter is aimed at 5 years plus but there are lots of reviews of younger kids using it.

It could be a good choice for a 4 year old who is already confident at using a 3 wheel scooter and is ready to make the move to a 2 wheels scooter. ​

Stomp on the pump at the bottom of the rocket and see how high it will shoot up in the air.

Lightening McQueen from the movie cars is a huge favorite with this age group (my son loves him) so consider opting for a Lightening Mcqueen racetrack or Disney Cars 2 toys.
