Lexington, MA (PRWEB) March 16, 2013
Daily Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products is working with motorcross enthusiast entrepreneur to feature TootScoot balance bike for children.
Buck Hale is an avid BMX rider and motocross competitor, so it’s no surprise his son Seth was ready to get on two wheels at an early age. Buck built the first TootScoot for Seth when he was one year old, and at 18 months, Seth could cruise with his feet off the ground. That got people’s attention, and folks started asking Buck where they could buy a balance bike like his. All the interest inspired Buck to collaborate with a manufacturer, refine his prototypes, and turn his design into a business.
Like other balance bikes, TootScoot is designed to boost kids’ coordination and motor skills so they can more easily transition to a traditional two-wheeler when they’re ready. What’s different about TootScoot is its size. It’s intended for children ages 2-5, and the steel frame is low to the ground to make early riders comfortable. The wheels are plastic and rubber -- which means no need to fill the tires with air -- and wider than normal to make balancing easier. The handle bar and seat heights are adjustable.
Learning to ride a bike is a big milestone. With TootScoot, kids can gain confidence and skills before they graduate to a pedal bike. When they’re ready to roll, it’s a great starter bike.
