Switchboard

Fisher-Price, pounds 19.99

What you get: A versatile device that is really two toys in one

Starts off as a sturdy scooter with an easy-to-operate handle locked in the up position for kids around five years old

It is also a cool first skateboard for older, more confident kids

Where to buy:

Skate Scooter

Ozbozz, pounds 19.99

What you get: a skateboard and scooter for three years and over

Sturdy solid scooter for young kids with a well shaped handle

As a skateboard, this is steady and would be fine as a mode of transport, but is unlikely to stand up to lot of heavy use

There's a useful carry bag for the handle
