I want to get E a scooter, she was playing on one today at stay and play and loved it!
Any ideas on which one would be better? She's two.
She played on one like this -
But thinking this might be sturdier -
thank you :)

I'd go for a cheap and cheerful one at that age to be honest. My daughter had a3 wheel plastic one from Argos, she loved it. My son then had a sturdier, heavier metal one and both of them still played with the plastic one - I'm guessing because it lighter and easier to steer. They now at age 3&4 have 2 wheelers. So I wouldn't spend much on a 3 wheeler for just a year or so.

Plastic scooters are definitely lighter and I think LR is right in that children find metal scooters too heavy to use. (apart from the lightweight two wheelers that is).
We have a 3 wheel micro scooter which we bought when I think our daughter was 3. She's 6 and is still using it. So good value for money although I did hesitate at the initial cost. Some of her friends now have 2 wheelers but not all.

J got a Thomas one from Argos for his 3rd birthday which he's loved but he had some Easter money and he's just bought himself a 2 wheel one. Again this was only a cheap one for now because I think we'll end up getting him a decent one in the next couple of years.

Lou has a My First Scooter with 4 wheels and a Tesco jobbie which you move the handle side to side to turn corners. I wouldn't fork out loads at this age for them
