Scooter for kids (not motor)

Post by nellyp » Tue Jan 17, 2017 9:11 pm

My 11 year old has decided he needs a scooter, but we can only find larger sized ones downstairs in market village. Does anybody know anywhere else to buy one?

If you are referring to a regular 2-wheel push scooter, you can get what they call a "micro scooter" at the sports shop in the basement at Market Village, or at Toys R Us upstairs where the same thing will cost a lot more. These are adjustable, so good for all sizes/ages.

I believe Toys R Us vanished many many moons ago. That area has been the banking zone for quite a while.

:lach: :lach: :lach: Just goes to show how often I go to Market Village. I was there in December though, but only for about 30 minutes, and only in the basement section, where I did see the micro scooters mentioned in my previous post.

Fortunately for me, there is absolutely nothing I want or need at MV, and especially since Makro opened just down the road from me.

You could try the bike shop just before the palace ( on L leaving HH ) They seem to sell a lot more than just bikes.

Thanks. I have seen them in market village, but I am trying to find other makes and quality. I want him to buy one he can use for tricks, as otherwise he is bound to wreck it

Cheers

It may be worth your while to look at LA Bicycle closer to the center of town, also on the main drag.

Ok, that is another option. I couldn't find the one by the king's palace today, but I may not have gone far enough along the road. i will take another journey on the week end.

If I start at market village and drive along Phetkasem road, will I pass LA bicycles? If so will they be on my left or right driving towards the king's palace?

LA Bike is on the right a couple of hundred meters or so after the Esso station as you go north, before you get to the U-turn at Soi 68. The other bike shop is also on the right just after the Shell station on the left and the PTT station on the right.

Thanks again.

I went to LA but they had no scooters, I will have to have another look for the one further down

I noticed that Tesco had a few, immediately on your left as you enter the store a couple of days ago - of course, I've no idea if they would be rugged enough for performing tricks.

Thanks, but they are a bit small for my 11 year old. No doubt I will eventuall need to buy one for my 7 year old though

Cheers
