Bug Red Scuttlebug
Advantages: well made
Disadvantages: Age recomendation a little high
When we brought scooters for my 2 oldest children we realised my little boy at 18 months would be a little small for one so did not want to leave him out we decided to look for a ride on he could enjoy with his brother and sister. That is when we came across the scuttle bug. It is a small ride on with 3 legs that are a little steadier for children just on there feet and we thought it was perfect. They come in a range of colours and the particular one we have is red and blue.
The ride on itself is made of a mix of metal and plastic. The metal make the frame very strong and durable which is what you need with a toddler and the plastic seat is moulded in a curved shape so little one can sit comfy without sliding off. Although it is rather heavy the wheel turn round in a full circle so little one can push them around easily without getting stuck going in one direction and my little boy manages to push himself with ease.
These ride on's work very well on carpeted floor, laminate flooring and also outside because the wheels are well made and have an anti lock system little one does not get frustrated not being able to go where they please which I think is one of the best features of these cheerful ride on's.
There is a button underneath the scuttle bug that when you press it down and pull each leg they unclick and fold down so that it can be stored very easily. When folded this scuttle bug takes up very little room and is perfect for putting in the back of the car or even under the buggy for while we are out and about and adds a little more excitement to our day trips.
It is also very easy to fold out again just press the button to unlock the legs pull them out straight and they click into place easily. It is rather tuff to do which I believe is good as it means little one could not accidently unfold the scuttle bug resulting in them hurting themselves but easy enough for an adult to do .
I paid £24 for this scuttle bug from Tesco and it is suitable from ages 1-3. I think it is correct at the lower age limit but my little girl is just about to turn 3 and to be honest she is a little big for this toy. She can sit comfortably on it but when she goes to push herself along her little legs are all squished up and she just can push with ease.
This would be my only downside it fits my son perfectly now as an average 18 month old but I'm afraid in around 6 months he will have out grown it. Saying that for the amount of use it will have got within that year this lovely ride on has paid for itself over and over. I will be keeping it for my next arrival for when they are old enough to ride it and as it comes in unisex colours it does not matter if we are having a boy or girl.
Summary: A fantastic ride on
