Is It Better To Have Two Wheels At The Front Or The Back of a 3 Wheel Scooter?
Sturdy And Stable
If a child lacks confidence or doesn't want to go too fast this type of scooter may suit them. But, I know for my own boys they would feel frustration at not being able to go very quickly.
I think both ways of steering have their merits. The lean and steer mechanisms are great for promoting balance which is good. However, scooters for older children tend to use the handlebars to steer the scooter so if the child is already used to having a scooter which is controlled by using the handlebars they may make the transition to a bigger two wheeled scooter more easily. But the steering method isn’t the most important consideration on which scooter to choose in my opinion unless they are already used to using a particular method of steering on another scooter or a balance bike. In this case I would stick with what they already know.
My Personal Opinion
I may perhaps consider getting a scooter with 2 wheels at the back for children who are not likely to want to go too quickly on their scooter.
My advice is read reviews and consider your child to decide which type of 3 wheel scooter they would prefer.
