When it comes to some really neat, sleek and clean products, Northern European companies really seem to have that down pat. Scandinavian Child, is the American Distributor for some really stylish, innovative and creative children products, all the products they carry have “designs without compromise”. Most of their products are eco-friendly and are made from sustainable raw materials, lead-free finishes, Phthalate-free plastics, PBDE-free cushions, low-VOC paint, and formaldehyde-free plywood – these are all things that are important to parents.
A few months back, I had asked all of you what items you would like to see on My Wee View, and Tammy N said “the Svan Scooter”. Thanks to Tammy , and the people at Scandinavian Child, I am able to bring you a review of the Svan Scooter! The scooter is really neat, it’s so sleek and simple, yet is diverse and very entertaining.
DD is still a little bit too young to push herself along by herself on the scooter, however she can sit on it, and I can push her around. Because there are 3 wheels, it is very very easy to turn on a dime. The front wheel can do a full 360 very easily, and the back wheels will follow. Children are very smart, and DD has found another use for the Svan Scooter, she is using it to learn to walk. She puts her hands on the seat, and pushes it around from the back. She has a few toys that are meant to do this like a little lawnmower and a car, however, the Svan Scooter is lighter, and the wheels are so much easier to push along. She really likes to walk (even run) with the scooter, and then when she gets older she will be able to use it as a scooter to sit on. I thought it was pretty inventive of her, because I did not see this function at all when I first saw the scooter. I do find that because the scooter only has 3 wheels, I have to watch DD closely to ensure she does not tip over while she is trying to walk. If she pushes from the back all is fine, but if she grabs onto the side or the front, it can get a bit wobbly.
The Customer service at Scandinavian Child is excellent as well. When my package arrived one of the wheels on the Svan Scooter was broken off. I sent a message to customer service right away, and they shipped us a anew wheel. It was very easy to put on, and the Svan Scooter was in business.
Scandinavian Child has some really cool products, they are all the same type of items we are used to here, but have such a neat twist to them to make them all look extra cool. They carry strollers, highchairs, and accessories for babies, toddlers and children. The products at Scandinavian Child are all tested and meet the American Society for Testing and Materials, are eco-friendly and ultra modern.
