Kick the scooter habit

kickscooterThis is the ultimate vehicle for gymnasts and contortionists everywhere. It looks about as stable as a Segway with a broken gyroscope.

What you’re supposed to do is hang on to the handlebars for dear life while pumping back and forth the bar over the rear wheel which has a ratchet which allegedly spins the rear wheel. All perfectly sound mechanically but a nightmare of coordination for a growing child.

This is one of those machines that is rare but for all the wrong reasons. However, if you’re a collector of death traps and/or failed technologies I doubt you’ll find one of these cheaper, if you could find it all.
