INTRODUCTION
ABOUT THIS MANUAL
This manual was written to help you get the most performance, comfort,
enjoyment, and safety when your child is riding his or her new folding scooter.
It is important for you to understand your child’s new folding scooter, how
your child should use it and what you need to do to keep your child safe.
GENERAL WARNING
Use of a kick scooter can be a hazardous activity even under the best of
circumstances. Proper maintenance of your child’s new scooter is your
responsibility as it helps reduce the risk of injury. This manual contains many
“WARNINGS” concerning the consequences of failure to maintain or inspect
your child’s new scooter. Many of the warnings could say, “your child may
lose control and fall.” Because any fall can result in serious injury or even
death, we do not repeat the warning of possible injury or death whenever the
risk of falling leads to a “WARNING”. NOTE: The illustrations in this manual are
used simply to provide examples; the components of your child’s new scooter
might differ. In addition, some of the parts shown might be optional and not
part of your child’s new scooter’s standard equipment. The following manual
is only a guide to assist you.
A SPECIAL NOTE FOR PARENTS
Your child’s new scooter is distributed by Dynacraft BSC, Inc. and is
intended for riding on flat surfaces and easy slopes. Be WARNED if unsupervised, children could use scooters inappropriately like they have seen older
riders use skateboards in extreme sports settings. Know your child, and see
that they only use this scooter safely and within their age and physical limits.
Uses such as aggressive off-road riding, downhill riding, jumping tricks,
stunting and other extreme uses are not recommended. If you allow your child
to do such things with this scooter you must assume sole responsibility for
any harm to your child that may result.
It is a tragic fact that riding accidents involve children. As a parent or guardian, your bear the responsibility for the activities and safety of your minor child.
Among these responsibilities are to make sure that your child’s new scooter,
which your child is riding, is in good repair and safe operating condition; that
you and your child have gone over the use, operation and safety section of
this manual; that you and your child have learned, and understand what to
do and what not to do with your child’s new scooter, and the common sense
rules of gravity, safe speed and courteous cycling.

USE, OPERATION, AND SAFETY
As a parent, you should read this manual before letting your child ride his
or her new scooter. The age grade of 5 years old is based on United States
government guidance on child development and appropriate toys, but young
children are all different. If your child walks and runs with confidence, then the
child may have developed the balancing skills to operate the scooter. Turning
with a small front wheel and stopping with a simple brake are not the same as
a bicycle or car. You can not expect your child to understand how difficult it
is to stop on hills or at speed or turn without jerking the small front wheel, and
your close supervision and sound limits about speed and grade are required
for your child’s safety. So encourage play and having fun with the scooter, but
keep it on flat surfaces or gentle slopes, always wear shoes (never barefoot,
sandals or flip flops), and avoid traffic and pedestrians. Remember, only you
are the best judge of whether your child is at the appropriate development stage for safe play with this scooter.
Always have your child use safety equipment and appropriate clothes and
shoes. Safety equipment is a helmet, knee pads and elbow pads. The helmet
is not only a good idea but required in many communities. To protect your
child, the helmet must comply with CPSC, 16 CFR Section 1203 requirements
and be worn correctly.
CORRECT FITTING –
MAKE SURE YOUR HELMET
COVERS YOUR FOREHEAD.
CORRECT FITTING –
MAKE SURE YOUR HELMET
COVERS YOUR FOREHEAD.
INCORRECT FITTING –
FOREHEAD IS EXPOSED
AND VULNERABLE TO
SERIOUS INJURY.

INCORRECT FITTING
Be aware that young children can often master riding, and still will lose their
balance and fall while at play. So part of your supervision is that they not leave
the scooter or other toys around the ground where they play as they may fall
on them. It is also your responsibility to maintain the scooter after correctly
assembling it.
Children should be made aware of all possible riding hazards and correct
riding behavior before they take off on the scooter. Please explain to them as
often as necessary:
• Always wear a helmet and other safety equipment
• Always keep the chin strap on the helmet securely buckled.
• Observe the age and weight limitations on the cover of this manual.
• Young children must be supervised by an adult to be safe.
• Wear shoes.
• Keep two hands on the handlebars.
• Never have more than one rider and never try to tow anything.
• Do not ride at night.
• Do not ride in wet weather.
• Obey all local laws about cycling.
• Do not ride near swimming pools, ditches or drop offs.
• Brakes get hot from use, do not touch them after use.
• Always ride on smooth surfaces or gentle slopes and avoid too much speed.
• Do not ride on streets, around cars, on hills, barefoot, or in skateboard or
vehicle traffic.
• Speed is a danger, avoid excessive speed going down hill; also avoid stunts,
jumps and bumps.
• Avoid sharp turns, bumps, drainage grates, trick stages, ramps, half pipes,
skateboard parks, or empty swimming pools.
• Regularly check brakes, grip ends, and steering connections and do not ride
if parts are broken or worn until fixed or replaced by your parent.
