All the kids I know (boys & girls) including my own have Razer scooters. They seem to do the job. Google them for the range and see what you think. Does not need to be anything super fancy for a 6yo so you will probably be looking at $70-100.

DD recently got a Micro Scooter (which I ordered online). They are great IMO, well constructed and high quality. She previously had a Big W one, which did the job, but got wrecked pretty quickly.

Our mini Micro has been going strong for 5yrs now. DS1 upgraded to Maxi and DD got his Micro.

DD1 loves her maxi micro. And she's on it Every. Single. Day. It's incredibly sturdy. We will definitely get one for DD2 when the time comes.

Definitely Maxi Micro, DD1 is 6 and is never off hers.

I had thought about getting my prep kid a maxi micro so we could scoot to and from school (we handed down his mini micro to his 3 year old brother) but wondered if they would be a bit too babyish?
Glad to hear there are 6 year olds who still like them!

We have micros too, a lite and a sprite. Outstanding quality

Was a bit sceptical about the rave reviews about micro's. After buying one for DS1 - DS2 has now got one too. They are great.

Micro all the way.
DD started with a mini. When DS needed a new scooter last year aged 7 we bought him a micro bullet I think it was called (2 wheeler). I got scooter envy and DH bought me a micro flex air for my birthday. It is so much fun and I go out scooting to the park with the kids.
Come to think of it, micro should come film us at the park. We'd make a great ad and I'd let them pay me too.
For a 6 year old though I would not buy the maxi micro but either the sprite or bullet (ie a 2 wheeler). I did see you can get pink bullets for DDs if they are that way inclined.

There used to be JD bugs and Razors I'd recommend - the ones with 6" wheels. DS9 and I have one each.
Need one for DS5 and you can't get them any more - The micro (he has a mini micro) seems to be the only real option, at around twice the price of the others....

My kids love the MGP's. They outgrew the minis years ago maybe around 4. A bit babyish.
