LP has a new found love of anything she can sit on and move along – she loves her Tunki and loves playing with trikes at the local toddler soft play. At home though she didn’t have anything like that – the closest thing she has is a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe – not the same sort of thing at all!
I came across Y-Volution online and they seemed to have something that fit the bill – a 3 in 1 Y Glider! It’s aimed at children 1-5 years old and adapts with the child as they grow, having 3 different stages – a sit on push along, a low handled scooter and a tall handled scooter for when they get bigger. I thought this would suit LP perfectly and Y-Volution have kindly sent us a Y Glider to review.
When the Y-Glider arrived it took us only a couple of minutes to put together. The Y Glider looks great and is really well made – good quality metal parts, softer rubber handlebar covering and it looks lovely too. The whole Y Glider feels very well made.
The first stage Y Glider with the seat attached has three different seat heights that are easy to switch between with a little help from an allen key. We tried each of the three heights and decided that the tallest option was best for LP – She’s a petite 2 year old and so is probably at the top end of the range that the seat stage is aimed at.
We have tried the Y Glider in the first scooter mode too but at the moment LP doesn’t have the confidence for it and much prefers sitting on the Y Glider. It’s reassuring to know that as LP gets bigger and grows in confidence the Y Glider will grow with her – it’s definitely something that will last for the next few years and that LP will hopefully continue to enjoy as much as she does now.
The Y Glider has built in ’tilt to steer’ technology which I’ve been testing out myself whilst pushing LP around the room! With a slight tilt of the handle the Y Glider smoothly moves in that direction. The steering is incredibly easy and something that will be used mostly when the Y Glider is in the main Scooter mode.
Y-Volution offer a range of active products to suit all ages – from balance bikes to pogo sticks! Every product is innovative and well thought out. For a company to offer active products to suit babies of 9 months all the way through to products for those aged 9 years and older is truly amazing – Y-Volution is a brand that I will definitely be keeping my eye on in the future!
