Win an awesome new mobility device for kids: the Scooot


When Max was little and eager to get around, but not yet able to walk, I would have bought him jet-propelled wings if it would have helped. So I'm really excited about the Scooot, a clever and cute mobility device that gives kids support for flexing their muscles—and independence. It's from Firefly, the game-changing company that debuted the Upsee last year. Firefly also just came out with the Playpak, a portable bag filled with rolls, wedges and supports.

The Scooot is geared toward kids ages two to six years old, up to 48 pounds. There are two versions. The 3-in-1 Scooot offers three ways to use it:
Crawl Using just the cushion-covered seat, kids can move and explore on their stomachs, strengthening their upper bods and tummy muscles while lifting their heads and shoulders
Scoot With the support of a backrest and lap belt, a child can propel himself around using his fee. It stabilizes the trunk and pelvis, freeing up a kid's hands to explore. Bonus: The padded cushion and lap belt are both machine washable.
Ride Kids zoom around the floor by manuevering the wheels. This function can also help build upper body strength, and let kids further explore their surroundings and boost their spatial awareness. There's an adjustable footrest, too.

The 2-in-1 Scooot comes without the wheels—kids can crawl and scoot. Check out the video:



Giveaway!

Enter below to win either a 3-in-1 Scooot (worth $595) or 2-in-1 Scooot (worth $395), whichever version is best for your child. The contest ends on Monday, March 30 at 12:00 AM. The Scooot should be sent to you within two weeks afterward. Check in with your child's physical therapist to make sure the Scooot is appropriate for him/her.

This giveaway is open to residents of the United States only. 

You must leave a comment below to enter; feel free to explain how the Scooot could help your child. You can score bonus entries, too—see the full rules in the Rafflecopter entry form. Good luck!

  3. Hoping Matthew wins! He just turned 5 last week and hasn't progressed past being able to roll over or sitting criss-cross applesauce with support. I wish all of our kids could win <3

  4. My son is too old for this now. When he was younger he scooted EVERYWHERE. He could have really benefited from this & so could all of his torn pants. I would love to donate this to his former elementary classroom.

  5. Would love the 3 in 1 for my son! He's 6 but he's small, loves to scoot around on his belly, but it really wears him out. This would be great for him!

  6. I would love this for my beautiful 4-year-old granddaughter! It is one of the items my daughter has mentioned to me that she wants for her daughter.

  10. Alexis was born with no heartbeat or breathing for 25 minutes, we were told she would most likely not make it through the night and if she did she would be a vegetable. My sweet baby girl is now almost 2 and rolling over and sitting with crossed legs and support. This would open up so much for her to be able to have more mobility! Sure hope we win:)

  11. Lily has CP and can only scoot around on her hands and knees. Because of that, she predominately just sits in the W position which is horrible for her joints. She is also always putting holes in the knees of all of her clothes. This would be amazing for her to be able to explore more while keeping her in good alignment!

  12. Thank you for sharing. My daughter, Kayla has a rare genetic disorder called Tuberous Sclerosis Complex leading to seizure disorder, hypotonia, and global developmental delay. She will greatly benefit from Scooot as she has learned how to scoot bottom lately using her arms to support her. Scooot will free up her hands and will give her more chance to explore her environment.

  13. Our daughter has CP and Epilepsy. She will be 3 in a couple weeks. She was a twin, born at 23.5 weeks(1lb 4ounces). She is weak on her right side, so I believe the 3in1 would be a wonderful advantage For her. She currently scoots on her bottom. I think your scooter will help her strengthen her muscles! Thankyou for this opportunity! 😊

  14. My son would love this. He has CP and epilepsy is 6 but only 37lbs. loves movement and anything with wheels. This he could do independently inside or out!

  15. My son would love this. He's four, and primarily crawls or uses a walker. He was a 25 week preemie, and has ataxic/spastic CP. This would be awesome to share with the kids at STEPS as well.

  19. This would be great for my 2 yr old with CP. He currently isn't crawling yet, but this could help strengthen his muscles.

  20. Where can I order this. My niece is in Ireland and has cerebral palsy and will not use her wheelchair. She goes around on her bum which can end up red raw. This would be perfect for her. Would you deliver to Ireland, I would be prepared to pay any amount for delivery, Carol Fagn, Dublin, Ireland.
