My 2 1/2 year old daughter absolutely loves Peppa Pig and she had seen a skateboard on Jake and the Neverland Pirates and wanted one, well I wasn't about to buy her a skateboard at her age so I thought I would get her the next best thing...a scooter.
The scooter is made up of a combination of metal and plastic(plastic being the bit your child stands on and also the wheels(didn't look as if it was going to be very safe to me).
Oh my god I have to assemble this thing!!! There was no mention of this on the site and I almost sent it back(putting things together is not my forte, unless it's furniture). I was surprised at how easy it was to assemble, from putting the decals on to attaching the handlebars and foot bar, then I got to the back wheel axle. After about 10 minutes I managed to assemble that part, (I have since read other reviews about other people having problems with this part) while my impatient daughter looked on anxiously.
It did look a bit flimsy once assembled(The wheels and foot bar are made of cheap looking plastic), and I didn't think it was going to last 5 minutes in the hands of a heavy handed 2 year old, but I have been pleasantly surprised at how well it has lasted. I have taken my daughter to the shops on it, it has been knocked over, dragged about(my daughter ties a skipping rope to the handle bars and the other end to her trike and drags either the trike or the scooter behind her). It is still in really good condition considering the amount of abuse she has put it through, and she has had it for 6 months, for something that cost so little, I think that's a great bargain!
Introduction about the Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter
My daughter received a Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter for her last birthday when she turned three years old, which was six months ago. The Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter is suitable for 3 years+. It took my husband about twenty minutes to assemble the Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter. My daughter was really excited and she enjoyed playing with the Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter.
About the Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter
The three wide safety wheels are blue and the insides of the wide safety wheels are yellow. The sofy easy grip bar handles are red and the circle display in front if the bar handle says "Peppa loves to ride her bike" and also displays a picture of Peppa Pig on her bike riding on the grass. The pole on the front of the bike near the wheel also says "Oink"! The sturdy footplate helps my daughter gain balance when she is using the Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter. The weight limit for the Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter is 20kg.
The Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter has worked very well for the past six months and it still looks like brand new. The Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter is not very susceptible to wear and tear. The manufacturer advises that the Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter is to be used under super vision of an adult so I don't let my daughter use the scooter unless I am supervising her.
The Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter is good value for money and still looks good as my daughter has been using it for six months now. At the time of writing this review, the Mookie Peppa Pig Scooter costs £28 at Debenhams, £30 at Wilkinsons and £12.99 at Smiths Toys! I would definitely recommend that you buy this for your son or daughter!
At the time of her third birthday my daughter was a big Peppa Pig fan, so I wasn't particularly surprised when she received this scooter from her nan. Coming in a large cardboard box I assumed it was already assembled, but this isn't the case and although the actual frame of the scooter is all in one piece the more fiddly bits (annoyingly) require your attention before giving it to the excited child to play with.
Once put together I was surprised, and still am, at how insubstantial this scooter is. Take away the overly large plastic 'bits' and this is actually quite a pathetic looking thing, even WITH all the 'bits' it looks tiny and as though it wouldn't be able to cope with the heavy handled involved in being the average three year olds play thing. It hasn't coped particularly well either, although to be honest Hollie has never been overly impressed by it so it's actually had very little use over the past almost two years. In fact, it was going to go back when we realised how flimsy the scooter was and it was only due to a missed collection (with all the faffing that entails) that we kept the thing!
The large footplate is pretty well non-slip, a series of raised ridges keeps small feet in place providing they're wearing sensible shoes in the first place. Hollie tends to wear pumps or trainers when she's playing in the garden, but I've seen her messing around on this scooter in sandals and other slippery bottomed shoes and can tell you this isn't a particularly good idea unless you want your little one to slide off the footplate whenever they go around a corner! The footplate itself is attached securely to the scooter, there's no wobble and it's wide enough that Hollie always looks stable while using the scooter. The worry I've had ever since we've had the scooter is the fact that the footplate is made of surprisingly thin plastic, considering how wide it is I've expected it to shatter every time Hollie flings it to the ground - it hasn't, but I've noticed a crack forming on one end which looks like it's going to develop into an actual break soon.
The handlebar adjusts smoothly and easily- normally I have to ask Mark to sort out things like this, but on this scooter it's so straightforward that even I could do it! Once tightened back up I doubt there is any danger of a child undoing it again - even if they did I can't see that they'd hurt themselves as the handlebar doesn't drop with guillotine-like speed, and anyway there are no spaces for a child to put their fingers for slicing!
The plastic wheels are a bit wobbly, and have never been very smooth in the time we've had the scooter. This means it doesn't ALWAYS go exactly where Hollie wants it to, and if she's been out on it and got bored the strangely attached wheels make it harder than usual for me to pull along behind me. Hollie regularly uses her friends scooter (which is a basic ELC design) and I've noticed she goes much quicker on that one, I think the three overly large wheels on this Peppa Pig mean they don't spin as freely which has proved frustrating for her when she decides a fast 'scoot' is in order!
I think the best way to sum up this scooter is to say that you can get better for the money. This one is currently selling at around the £30 mark, which is extremely expensive for such a poorly designed product - as is true for many of the Peppa Pig branded play things in my experience. The fact that the front mud guard fell off within a week of Hollie beginning to use the scooter speaks volumes really, she's not a destructive child and actually looks after her things very well so I don't think it was her being overly harsh with the scooter that caused this. Even if your child is a massive Peppa Pig fanatic I wouldn't recommend this scooter really, it's a shame as the overall design looks very sweet (and equally appealing to boys and girls) but there are definitely kids scooters available - and for less cash if you're prepared to shop around!
For the small minority who haven't heart of Peppa Pig, I will fill you in. Peppa Pig is a popular children's television programme that is aimed at preschoolers and is based around a little girl pig called Peppa and her family.
My daughter used to love Peppa Pig (and still enjoys it now actually) and always enjoyed zooming around on the scooters at nursery, so was thrilled to receive a Peppa Pig scooter for her third birthday!
The scooter was bought as a present from a family member, so thankfully I didn't have to set it up. It comes in a box semi-assembled. I hear that it was an absolute nightmare to set up and took a while - the wheels in particular. The scooter also comes with a number of stickers which need to be stuck on.
The Peppa Pig scooter comes in 2 colours - a pink and blue version and a more unisex blue, red and yellow. They both look nice. My daughter has the blue, red and yellow version. She probably would have chosen the pink version if she had the choice, but she's more than happy with the one she has. The scooter is recommended for children 3+ years and is made by a company called Mookie.
The frame of the scooter is made from solid steel and the rest is made from plastic (the 'easy grip' handles, wheels, foot plate and mudguard). It is very sturdy and easy to clean - a soapy sponge does the job (an enjoyable and rewarding job for children too!). Whilst being sturdy, it is also lightweight (3.5kg I believe) which is relief for me as I usually end up carrying it around when my daughter gets preoccupied at the park! Another handy thing about this scooter is that is has 3 wheels (one on the front and two at the back) which enables my daughter to stand her scooter up - this means she can get on and off with ease... and it doesn't come crashing down on the floor every five minutes! I'd say the height off the scooter is just about right for the age range (maybe very slightly too big for small 3 year olds - my daughter was a tiny bit short at first but grew in to it within a couple of months) and the foot plate is large enough to get both feet on to.
Unfortunately there are a couple of downsides to the scooter. Firstly the back wheels are designed to be chunky for 'extra stability' and although I agree the scooter is stable, I also think the wheels are far too big and stick out too much. Whilst my daughter was really pleased to receive a scooter for her birthday, she also took a few months to start using it properly because she found it too awkward to ride on. The leg which she was supposed to be using to push herself along kept getting caught on the back wheels (which actually sometimes hurt her). Fortunately within a few months of practice she had got the hang of it and now is a total pro! The back wheels also seem quite 'wobbly', especially when used outside on rough surfaces. This can be a worry (particularly at first), although I must admit she has never had any accidents because of it. Another minor downside is there is a plaque on the front of the scooter with a picture of Peppa riding her bike - the plaque says 'Peppa loves to ride her bike' which in my opinion is a really strange and thoughtless thing to put on a scooter...
My daughter is now 4 years old and has had the scooter for almost 2 years. She still regularly uses her scooter and would probably award it 5 stars if I asked. She can go really fast on it and can steer very well. She rarely has incidents on her scooter and really enjoys taking it out and about. The scooter is still in very good condition (although some of the stickers are starting to look a bit shabby). I'm quite confident that she will get another year or so before wanting a new 'older' scooter. I would recommend the Peppa Pig scooter to young Peppa fans, although it may be a bit big and awkward for newly 3 year olds (and definitely any younger)...
The Peppa Pig scooter is widely available at retailers such as Argos, Amazon, Tesco, Toys R Us and Mothercare. Prices generally range between £20.00 - £30.00 so it's best to shop around.
We brought this for my daughter from Tesco for £25 we actually brought it when she was 2 as my little boys scooter was tiny when we brought it we thought that maybe this would be a smaller size too and so she would be able to use it. This scooter is recommended from 3 plus but my daughter was able to use it from 2 and the handles were the perfect height for her. It is a little different to the one in the above picture so not sure if it is a more up to date version.
What is it?
It is a tri scooter with 1 wheel at the front and 2 at the back to give more balance to little ones that are not as stable on 2 wheels as one which is great.
The scooters main frame is made of metal which makes it very sturdy and durable while the rest of the scooter is plastic. The wheels actually look really cheap and I was a little worried but they have stood the test of time and I suppose that is what counts. They have worn down a little in last year but they still work fine and as they are rather large they still function perfectly.
It is bright in colour and is blue and yellow so could be unisex but there is a George pig version of this scooter and I do think that is more suited for a boy.
The scooter comes mainly in one piece but you have to add the handle bars and wheels yourself which is rather easy to do and really does not take that long which is good when you have 3 children and lots of things to put together on Christmas eve.
One thing you also have to do is add the stickers to the scooter yourself this seems to be the case with a lot of peppa pig toys and usually this is a problem as I find they peel off straight way but I found with this scooter they have actually remained on there for a full year which is great as it does not make the scooter look tacky and cheap. There is a plate on the front of the scooter which has a pre added sticker and it says Peppa pig likes to ride her bike and has a picture of Peppa on a bike which is a little confusing as this is a scooter but my daughter does not seem to mind.
How well does it last?
The footplate is wide enough for my daughter to stand on it easily with plenty of room and it has an anti slip surface so she can get a good grip to push herself along. The handle bars are a good height and they have grips on them so little one can get a good hold while they are scooting along.
The wheels are plastic but they have lasted well and do not get stuck they roll freely and make it very easy for little one to push themselves along. I was a little worried as before I bought this I looked at reviews and it seemed the main problem was large back wheels that caught little ones feet but although the back wheels are large they are not too big to cause a problem so maybe they picked up on this glitch and fixed it.
My daughter has used this indoors on carpeted and wooden flooring and also outside on all types of surface and it works really well on all it is stable and provides fun for her and she often rides her scooter to pick her big brother up from school.
She has had this scooter for a year and is still able to ride it with ease the handle bars cannot be adjusted but the height of them are a good size meaning she has got a long life time out of it and there is no sign that she will outgrow it any time soon.
Like I have mentioned the stickers need to be added which is really hard to do so without them getting air bubbles underneath but unlike most they do last rather well once on.
Also we have to retighten the handle bars every few months they do not become dangerously loose but do start to rattle a little but I do think this is just because of the amount of use it gets as my daughter uses it at least every other day.
Over all we think this scooter is great it has lasted over 13 months and although there is a little wear on the tyres it is nothing major and it has been well loved by my little girl. I would recommend even at full retail price of £25 but also shop around as it is often on offer especially around Christmas time.
When my daughter was at playgroup, they would regularly have bikes and scooters out for the children to play with and every time she would go straight for one of the scooters so I thought it would be a good idea to buy her one for her birthday. My auntie said she would like to buy one for her so I told her which characters she liked and left her to it. On her birthday, my daughter opened a Peppa Pig scooter - this was not one of the characters I liked, and my little girl wasn't really any longer a fan of Peppa! My daughter asked if she could have a Fifi scooter, but as it was a present I decided that we should keep the Peppa Pig one and I thought she would soon enjoy it when she started using it.
The scooter came in a large box and upon opening it I saw that it did require putting together. The handlebars and wheels were attached to the base of the scooter really easily, which was a good thing as my daughter wanted to have a go straight away as soon as the box was opened! There are a couple of stickers that you can attach to the scooter should you so wish - one being the Peppa Pig logo that can be placed on the front of the scooter on the mud guard.
There are two colour versions to this scooter, a red one or a pink one and my daughter recieved the pink one. The scooter is a pretty pastel looking one, with pastel blue foot plate and wheels, and pink handlebars and mud guard. The foot plate is quite wide so there is no real risk of your childs little foot slipping off, and the wheels are also wide and chunky. In the centre of the handlebars is a large plastic oval shape containing a picture of Peppa riding her bike with the words "Peppa loves to ride her bike" written above. Why it has a picture of her on her bike attached to her scooter is a little bit beyond me as surely it should have been a scooter?
The scooter is very lightweight and that is important as it makes it easy for the child to pull along or even carry if they aren't using it as a scooter. Using the scooter is very simple and I think that is also due to the lightweight feel to the scooter. With the foot plate being quite wide, it makes it easier for the child to put their foot on and it can sit comfortably there as with many other scooters the plate is quite thin and when moving the foot can slip off. The foot plate also has extra grip on so again the foot stays on much easier. The handles are also easy grip, which I think is great as it is so comfortable for little hands to hold while they are scooting. As there are three wheels on this scooter, it gives you peace of mind while your child is playing as you know it is much more stable than a two wheeler and for a toddler this is really important.
That is where the positives end for me i'm afraid! While I do like that the scooter is lightweight and easy for a toddler to use, it is a really flimsy scooter and it does seem like it could just fall apart at any time. I was happy for my daughter to play in the house on this scooter, but outside was a different matter as no matter how tight I screwed the screws in the wheels wobbled and it seemed really quite unsafe on the tarmac. After twice using the scooter outside it became completely apparent it wasn't good enough and I had to contact the retailer to arrange to return it! Thankfully I recieved a full refund and was able to go out and buy my daughter a Mickey Mouse scooter which is absolutely fantastic!
The cost of the Peppa Pig Scooter is currently £24.99 on Amazon and for the quality of it that is so overpriced and there are much better ones available at a cheaper price!
I think this is yet another Peppa Pig item that is extremely poor quality and I couldn't recommend it to anybody at all. My advice would certainly be to look around for a different scooter and avoid the Peppa one at all costs!
Thank you for reading my review!
My mum bought the Peppa Pig scooter for my daughter's birthday and she was thrilled with it though I can't say I love it as much.
My Mum purchased it from Argos for £19.99 and it looks cheap. It is made from mostly plastic and you can really tell. It has rubber handle covers, a plate to stand on and 3 very chunky wheels and Peppa Pig stickers to stick on it.
The scooter needs to be put together when you get it out of the box; the wheels and the handle bar to be precise. It all went together easily which was quite surprising. You have to stick the stickers on yourself all but the main one. No matter how hard any of us tried to one which goes over the mud guard type bit at the front, consistantly ended up with a crease down the middle. Even my Uncle who assembles models could not get this one sticker to stick right. It was strange and highly annoying. The main sticker on the plate near the handle bars leaves alot of confusion as it says "Peppa loves to ride her bike".....mmmm, okay, would be great it if were an actual bike and not a scooter. The picture of Peppa is also one of her riding a BIKE. I find that strange and disappointing as it seems that no thought has gone into the product an it has just been bashed out to milk some more money out of the Peppa Pig brand.
Although the scooter is great in the fact that it is light weight and easy to carry about when said child gets bored of scooting along, I would rather it be a bit heavier and feel that little bit more sturdy. It is fine when it is standing alone but it does wobble slightly when going along even though the wheels have been secured properly.
The other thing I don't like about this scooter is how big the back wheels are. They are absolutely massive and the size of them does make it seem awkward to scoot along with. My daughter has caught her ankles on them a few times. And she can easily ride both a bike and a scooter so do believe it is just the way this one is made.
This scooter, although my daughter really likes it, has me dreading the moment she gets out to play in the garden. It just feels so flimsy. I would never leave my daughter unattended whilst using the scooter. Sadly, I wouldn't recommend it. I feel it is cheap and inferior to other scooters out there.
I bought this Peppa Pig scooter for my granddaughter's third birthday, her elder sister has a metal micro scooter and Hollie has been desperate for one of her own. For me it was a toss up between this Mookie branded scooter or a Disney Princesses one; Peppa won the day as she is one of my granddaughter's favourite characters, plus the scooter appeared more brightly coloured and attractive to children just past the toddler stage.
Initially it seemed an excellent gift but today, less than a week later, the scooter has been packaged back up in anticipation of my son in law returning it to Argos due to the overall poor quality.
The scooter came in parts to be put together at home, luckily the bulk of the scooter had already been assembled and all the buyer has to do is fit the handle bars and wheels. I say luckily because although the instruction leaflet was written in perfect English (none of those awful translations) it seemed to explain the rather obvious aspects of assembly and gloss over the things you really do need explaining in more detail!
Everything went together fairly easily; as with any of these plastic toys there were a few sections which needed more coaxing into place than others, but overall assembly looked to be an extremely straight forward process.
Until it came to putting the back wheels on. Forgive me if I use incorrect terminology here, but the back wheels are fitted using a kind of serrated nut which needs to be tapped into place. Not screwed or pushed - tapped. The scooter comes with a plastic attachment for holding over this strange nut while will apparently make it easier to tap the nut into place, however this cracked the instant my son in law touched it with the toffee hammer and was rendered useless. He was left trying to tap gently but firmly with the end of a heavy screwdriver, the air was blue with cussing for at least twenty minutes during this particular point of assembly.
After the scooter had been fully assembled I was faced with putting the stickers on. Luckily the main front plate already has the sticker in place because at least that one isn't wrinkled and bubbled as the rest of them are! Confusingly though, the front plate has the statement that "Peppa loves to ride her bike" - yet another example of how little thought has gone into making this scooter.
So, why is it going back? Frankly because this is the worst scooter I have ever seen, and with two daughters plus three granddaughters I have seen many. It's flimsy to the point of actually being able to see the various parts of the frame wobble while in use, the back wheels that we had so much trouble with are extremely loose and do not look terribly safe to me. I suspect if my granddaughter were to use this scooter over rougher terrain than my back garden then one of the wheels may very well snap off, and this could cause quite a nasty accident due to the height of these wheels.
The scooter also seems a rather strange size, my granddaughter does not have particularly long legs - in fact, think short and stumpy and you'll have a good idea. So why on earth she keeps catching one of her feet on the back wheel while pushing herself along is beyond me. She has used plenty of scooters in the past so it's not her lack of prowess, in fact I am so confident in her scootering abilities that I am planning to replace this Peppa Pig scooter with a more grown up two wheeler, albeit a chunky one.
I certainly do not recommend this scooter, I think it's vastly over-priced for what it is and has turned out to be yet another company prostituting the image of much loved Peppa Pig in order to churn out poor quality, expensive goods. I paid £25 for the scooter, although have since seen it slightly cheaper online, and while I wouldn't ordinarily baulk at paying high prices for items I know my grandchildren will love, I hate being exploited as much as the next man.
My 2 year old was desperate to have a Scooter like her older brother and sister but there was no way that she could go the 2 wheeled ones like they have so when I found this one in Asda at £17.99 I thought it would be perfect.
It features Peppa Pig which is a favourite of hers and it is really well made. It has as a handle frame which you have to fit the rubber protectors on. They are pink and really soft but easy to grip on to.
There is a plate that attached to the front of the handle bars which you get a sticker of Peppa to stick on to. The handlebars are height adjustable so it can grow with your child.
There is another sticker that goes on the front with the words Peppa Pig on it.
I think this is really well designed. It is sturdy and stands up perfectly. It doesnt fall over easily as the wheels are wider than other 3 wheeled scooters. I also like that the nuts that hold the back wheels on are covered by plastic and they dont stick out. We have used other childrens Bob the Builder and Thomas scooters like this in the past and the bolts stick out and catch the childs ankles.
The other benefit of this is that it is quite light. I can easily pick this up and carry it is my daughter has had enough or put it over the handle bars of the pushchair.
My only critism of this Scooter is that the footplate is not very wide therefore a small child cant put their 2 feet side by side so they have to quickly learn to put one foot behind the other.
My daughter loves this and uses it at least 3 days a week and has done all summer. It is still in great condition even althought it is just stored in the garden.
Peppa Pig Scooter.
I purchased this scooter for my neice just recently, My first impressions were that they have three wheels which can keep your little tyke entertained and safe at the same time. The Peppa Pig scooter selling at about 30 pounds, you will get a great offer. One of the bad things is that it takes a long time for you to assemble the scooter, but afterwards it will be ready for your child to play on. The handles were sterdy and with the circular handle at the end of the main handle, it will be safe for children to hold onto the handle and not slip off at any time. The scooter does not get damaged and will protect the garden. You get given stickers to place on the scooter which can also be great fun for the children to play with.
I havent found any disadvantages but I think this is wonderful product and i suggest you buy this for your little tyke.
I purchased this scooter for around £30 last December. My daughter had asked for a scooter for Christmas and with Peppa Pig being her favourite tv character I thought this would be the ideal one for her when I spotted it on the Boots website.
The first thing that attracted me to it was how chunky and safe it looked. The wheels are made from hard plastic and appear to be very strong, thick and secure. Obviously safety is my main priority so I always look at things like this prior to purchasing. The next thing I noticed was that the board for placing your feet on was quite wide, meaning that my daughter wouldn't struggle to position her foot. The handles are also made of plastic and feature grips on them helping my daughter to secure herself and make the handles easy for her to hold.
The product also comes with some Peppa Pig stickers for you to place over the scooter. There are specific places for you to put these, but my daughter loves stickers and so I usually let her personalise her toys herself by allowing her to put the stickers where she chooses.
The scooter itself is well designed and I am very impressed with it. It recieves regular use throughout the summer, in the garden and it still looks as good as new. There was a small bit of assembly required when we first opened the item, but this was easy enough to do and clear instructions were provided.
I would recommend this item to others, but would suggest that you shop around for different colours and the best price to suit you and your child.
This scooter is great for your kids you can buy it from various places including Littlewoods where it will cost you £35.00. But if you look around you will probably be able to get it cheaper. The scooter is suitable for children aged 3 years and over and it is a great beginner s scooter.
I decided to buy my daughters a scooter as when I took them to nursery I noticed all the other children whizzing round on them. Then my girls had a go on them and were finding it difficult to get the hang on how to get the scooter to move and go fast. So I thought the best way to get them to improve was to buy them one so they could practise. I decided on Peppa Pig ones as it's one of there favourite cartoon characters. You can get similar scooters but different characters like: Fifi, Thomas the tank engine, Dora, In the night garden etc..
The scooters are great as there made out of thick plastic so are very strong. The colours are nice and bright and very unisex (red blue and yellow). There's plenty of room for you child to put there feet on the foot plate. The scooter has handlebar grips on making it easier for your child to hold onto the bars. The scooter has one large wheel at the front with a mudguard on it and there are two smaller wheels on the back this helps keep the scooter stable for your child. I think having the extra wheel also helps your child feel more confident on it as they feel more supported. There is a big plaque which you fix onto the front of the scooter with Peppa Pig on and then there are various Peppa Pig stickers to stick on the scooter which your child will love.
We didn't tell our daughters that we had brought the scooters for them so it was a nice surprise for them. The scooter came in pieces in the box ready for you to put together. The instructions were fairly easy to follow everything was included except the screw driver, adjustable spanner and a hammer but luckily we had them. It did take a little while for my husband to put them together but he's not the best at DIY. The only thing that we had trouble with was putting the stickers on in the instruction sheet it showed where they should go. But every time we put the sticker on the mudguard the sticker would bubble up so would have preferred if they were on there already. Other then that a lovely scooter for your child and I'm sure in no time my girls will be racing around on them
