When you are seven-years-old there is no such thing as fear.

An hour after hopping onto a mini Waveboard and Ruaridh was a natural!

Housed in a camouflage bag, this light weight board is fast, trendy and a hit with the children. I couldn’t get Ruaridh off it! The mini version is ideal for beginners and features automatic light-up wheels for day and night, a pivioting deck and 360 degree caster trucks to enable you to do snowboard type tricks. The boards are brilliant for a child’s co-ordination and improves strength, balance and agility.

The boards start at £30.99 including free delivery (for a limited time) and there is a video disk to help you get on your way and a handy tool kit for Dad when things go wrong, not that we saw Ruaridh for dust once he got the hang of it!

The Kent based firm Waveboard also sell classic, character and ripstyle boards, with all the accessories needed to keep you safe. And from Waveboards to scooters. Ruaridh’s sister Flora (4) was a whizz on her beginner scooter, but the JD Bug Scooter, currently on offer at £29.95 is a step up. They are not toys, but sporting machines which are not only trendy, but made of durable materials, which fold up too, so they are handy to transport. The range includes stunt scooter too and all the accessories and Flora soon got the hang of hers and had me wishing I still had no fear, so I could have a go!
