Kickboard USA is giving out free replacements for all recalled scooters -- which is great, because these scooters are wonderful for kids learning to ride. What I like about them is that they have two wheels in the front, which makes balancing so much easier for toddlers and small children. They're also usually really well made -- which is why I'm surprised by the recall. But these things happen. Safe riding, everyone!

Does your child have a scooter like this one?
