Naturally, the first thing I did when my shiny new Zinc Chozen scooter arrived in the mail was to scour the neighbourhood for other grown men to join my scooter gang. I actually thought it would be easy to find some other dads to join my crew but when it proved more difficult than expected, I went with Plan B and recruited my children.
Now, before we go any further, I promise that my original plan was to give the scooter to my kids, but after my initial test run on the beautifully smooth Zinc Chozen, I knew that this was going to become one of daddy’s toys. You see, I never had a real scooter as a child and seeing as how I don’t own any other method of transportation other than a car, I figured I was due.
My initial goal with the scooter gang was to use our super speed to fight crime in my city. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, there is a severe lack of crime in my city, which thwarted that plan. On the bright side, I have been able to use the scooter as a way to bond with my children. We’ve gone on rides to the park, to school and had some amazing adventures in general that we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to have without it. I think my favourite thing about the new Zinc scooter is that my four year old daughter has been asking if we could go on a scooter ride, “just the two of us”. Fathers of daughters will understand the heart tug on that one.
I know the Zinc Chozen scooter is designed to be a trick scooter (I promise I am working on my tricks) but it actually ended up providing me with something that I hadn’t expected in the form of a tighter bond with my kids. Also, for the record, this thing is the smoothest ride I have ever had. Even on the gravel pathway it exceeded my expectations, which is the main reason why I will be keeping this baby all to myself!
Now, check out my awesome scooter gang!
Disclosure: I received a Zinc Chozen scooter for review. Everything I stated above happened and the scooter is extra rad and makes me feel like a kid again.
