Scooting Into 2018 with Y Volution

Kids are active. They are busy and always on the go.

Getting that energy out in a healthy and constructive manner is key.

Give the kids in your life the chance to get that energy out with the hot outside toy  –  scooters! With so many kinds out there your head can spin, so MamatheFox did the dirty work and found a winner – the Y Volution Scooters

We played with the Y Glider XL Kids Scooter 


The Y Glider XL is one of the newest additional to the giant line of scooters by Y Volution. It is perfect for preschoolers through elementary ages children.

It features an adjustable height function, allowing your scooter to grow up with your child.

It’s wide rear break is a clunky wheel, which allows for more control – This is great for smaller/less experienced kids.

The extra wide deck is great for keeping feet stable on the scooter.

Can customize the deck – change the color in seconds

The kids favorite feature are the blinged out wheels! You can snap in your own pattern, with the colored decor that comes with each scooter. My 5 year old loved feeling like she was part of the set up process.

The scooter comes fully assembled, other than you needed to snap the top handle bar into the riding base. It was very simple, but did take some extra pressure of hand, so this is a job for a grown-up, not a small child.



To adjust the handle to have more turning mobility:

There is a yellow button down by the wheels. When you push that in, you can adjust the wheels up towards the handle bars or pull them down to create more space in between the wheels that the handle bars.

When the wheels are tight up against that deck, it’s locked and it won’t lean as much, but when you press that yellow button and move the wheels down, you’ll notice a big difference in the way the scooter handles. It will be much more loose and your kids will be able to lean into turns, etc.



We have ridden on a lot of brands and types of scooters, but we love the Y Glider for a few reasons:

  1. It is easy ride!
  2. It makes falling over more difficult with the adjustable ‘learn, grow, pro’ steering system
  3. Having two wheels in the front and only 1 in the rear is perfect for shorter legs/smaller kids

    I like that it has three wheels instead of the usual two which makes falling over less likely.

    I love that you can change the deck and wheels, the color changing options would be great when they no longer like pinks/reds etc.

    The scooter looks like a great gift. It’s especially good for kids who aren’t that into bike riding, like my daughter. She much rather ride a scooter. It looks very sturdy and easy to maneuver. Thanks for giving us the chance to win it. Happy Holidays!!

    The wider base and extra wheel makes it very stable. My granddaughter would ride this like crazy. She would be able to enjoy it for more than just a couple of seasons also.

    This is perfect for my youngest and the older ones are to big for it so they wouldn’t try to take it.

    These Scooters are Awesome for kids. They really look like they are having a Ball!! I love the colors and how you can change the design of the Riding Base. Two wheels in front is a feature so they don’t tip over so easy. Love them..
