  The Toy Man reviews the Skuut Balance Bike! / 2008
The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval Winner
Not every child begins their bicycle riding life on a tricycle; in fact many parents are of the school of thought that the sooner children learn balance, steering and coordination the sooner they can transition to a "regular" bike. Our testers were impressed with the solid construction and quality of the Skuut and the fact that it is easy to assemble with straight forward, clear instructions. There are no pedals or training wheels but as children push off and scoot (or Skuut) along, they pick up the concept of finding a balance point. / Fall 2008

  Skuut in the Daily Candy
Way less scary than a traditional two-wheeler (and less likely to produce scraped knees), the Skuut also teaches steering, coordination, and independence. It usually takes a week or two to figure out how to coast, but once kids get it, you’ll have a hard time getting them to stop. / Feb 2007
