Sturdy scooter £17.99 literally cheap at half the price! This is it

Found 2nd May 2016
Bought two of these for our 6 year old daughters a month ago. The shop claims that the specs are the same as the Jd bug as they're manufactured by the same company but imported from Japan. With a little googling I found this to be true so took a punt. We're really impressed. The girls wore out their previous- albeit inferior ones - within months but I expect these to last for years.
They're made for adult use as well as children, being built to carry up to 100 kg. I've ridden them on uneven flagstones and bunny hopped my 13 stone bulk and can't see any damage. On that note the front suspension doesn't appear to be a gimmick either, they do seem to absorb a certain amount of shock. Very simple opening mechanism means you can open them one handed (the same as you find on the Jd bug). We've just ordered two more for ourselves so we can have fun and keep up with the girls whilst they're still young enough not to be mortified by us!
The girls love them too by the way!

Yes I should have put in brackets at the end ... Of the JD Bug.

How annoying. My first post is dead in the water.
I tried the url on the box the other day and the domain name is up for sale so I guess they've gone bust and these were bankrupt stock.
They still have the rigid fork one in stock at £15 though.
They are back in stock, ordered one

Brilliant! They're still going strong by the way. One (tiny) quibble is with the strap clips. Two of the four we ordered have strong chrome sprung clips and two have different bronze coloured weaker ones which detach a little too easily. Other than that though we've really hammered them and have no complaints.
