Let’s Get Rollin’!
Hey there, fellow dads! Today, I want to share with you a little secret that has brought so much joy and adventure into my daddy life. It’s something that allows us to relive our childhood memories while creating new ones with our kids: Kick Scooters! Kickboards!
Whatever you call these things, I call ’em a great investment!
So, grab a cup of coffee, your knee pads, and join me on this cool ride as we talk about why every dad should get his own kick scooter and become the best riding partner for his kids.

Embracing the Inner Child
Don’t get me started on this one! I mean shit…I’m 8 years old all over again at times when I’m playing with my son. Isn’t it great! No one is judging you because you’re playing with your kid. If you’d be doing kids’ stuff with adults or alone people would think you were high on something or simply had a screw loose. Not me brother! I’m zoom-zooming around with my lil boy!
As dads, we are often ‘stuck’ in the responsibilities of adulthood. But guess what? The child within us still yearns for adventure and excitement. Owning a kick scooter is like unlocking a time capsule that takes us back to those carefree days of our youth. I had one with bigger wheels when I was in 8th grade until it got stolen! Damn you!
But, honestly, the moment we step onto that scooter, we are instantly transported to fun times and memories as well as occasional bumps and scrapes. It’s all good!
Quality Bonding Time
We all know how important it is to spend quality time with our kids. But let’s face it, sometimes it can be challenging to find activities that both parents and children genuinely enjoy. Enter the kick scooter! With your own scooter, you can become your child’s ultimate riding partner.
Picture this: gliding through the park, wind in your hair(what’s left of it), and laughter filling the air. It’s the perfect opportunity to bond, have heart-to-heart conversations, and create lasting memories. Following him is cool beyond words and I’m appreciating every time I ‘ride’ with my ‘lil ride or die buddy.’ Because, eh, these times won’t last forever.
Health Benefits for Dads
Being a dad means keeping up with our little bundles of energy. But sometimes, it’s easy to let our own fitness take a backseat. Kick scooters offer a fantastic way to stay active and get some exercise without feeling like a chore. The low-impact nature of scooting makes it ideal for dads of all fitness levels.
I mean damn…It’s a great cardio workout that workout your leg muscles while giving you a sense of freedom and fun. But it can be a little stressful on the non-kicking knee as it’ll be going up and down as you pump along…
Rediscovering the Neighborhood
How well do you know your neighborhood? Taking your kick scooter for a spin is a fantastic way to rediscover hidden gems, secret trails, and exciting spots you never knew existed. Suddenly, that mundane trip to the grocery store turns into an adventure-packed exploration, with your kick scooter serving as your trusty steed.
You’ll be kinda surprised as you can find yourself uncovering new parks, playgrounds, and scenic routes that you can share with your kids. Sounds a little cheesy but it’s not.
A Portable Hobby
One of the best things about kick scooters is their portability. Unlike other hobbies that require large investments or specific locations, a kick scooter can be easily folded up and taken with you wherever you go. Whether it’s a family vacation, a weekend trip to the countryside, or even a quick outing to the local park, your trusty scooter can always be by your side, ready to bring joy and excitement to any adventure.
Ours are always in the car. Sometimes we stop in a strange area we’ve never been in and start riding. It’s not only about getting outside but also more importantly building memories with your child. He/she will always remember Daddy scooting around with them when they were younger. How cool is that!?
Setting a Positive Example
By embracing the kick scooter lifestyle, you become an inspiration to your kids. They see you stepping out of your comfort zone, embracing fun, and staying active. You’re showing them that age is just a number and that life is meant to be lived to the fullest.
Your enthusiasm for kick scooting sets a positive example of lifelong playfulness and adventure, encouraging your kids to find joy in the simple pleasures and never stop exploring.
Connecting With Something New
By joining the kick scooter fun with your kids, you open yourself to see what’s around your neighborhood. Scooting might take you into the nooks and crannies of the neighborhood that you’ve never explored. Just do it! You’ll enjoy yourself more than you think…
So there you have it, fellow dads—a compelling case for why every dad should have his own kick scooter. From rekindling our inner child to fostering unforgettable memories with our kids, kick scooters offer a whole bunch of benefits that go far beyond just having fun.
