With our son's first birthday fast approaching, we have our eye on this gorgeous retro wooden ride-on scooter, £54.99 from Notonthehighstreet. Designed in the UK by Jammtoys (the creators of the fabulous Colin's Camper Van we featured a while ago, as well as a whole collection of wonderful wooden toys), it is made from beautiful quality, strong and durable plywood in smart and stylish racing red, grey and white, contrasting with the natural wooden base and handles. The wheels are multi-directional, with plastic casters and a rubberised strip for a smooth, easy ride. And with added extras such as under-seat storage for transporting those all-important toys, a painted headlight, front and back number plates and (of course) a speedometer on the inside, it is clear that the design has been carefully considered with children in mind. So carefully in fact, that the product recently won 'Best Toy Design 0-2 years' in the Junior Magazine Design Awards. The scooter measures 45 x 30 x 40cm, and is perfect for walking age upwards. It comes in your choice of red, aqua or pale pink - making it the ideal gift for little boy and little girl racers alike.
