Let’s Ride! Family-Friendly Scooter Line Inspires Kids To Unplug & Play This Summer

New York, NY, 2016-Jun-08 — /EPR Network/ — In an effort to get kids off the couch and out from behind their electronics, Space Scooter® is set to embark on a nationwide tour with their highly anticipated Coast to Coast Challenge. Encouraging kids to join the #SpaceScooterMovement and tracking the total combined miles at each event, the tour will introduce America to a brand new way of “scooting.” The challenge will kick-off in early June at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY and culminate at the San Diego County Fair on June 24 , 25 and 26 with local Space Scooter® street teams also descending on popular hot spots in cities nationwide.

Already a sensation all across Europe and a smash hit at the American International Toy Fair, the Space Scooter® is a multi-functional scooter that provides not only hours, but also years of entertainment for anyone that loves being outside and engaged in active play. Featuring a patented design that is faster than a traditional kick scooter and an easier transportation vehicle than a bike, Space Scooter® is propelled forward by an up and down teeter-totter motion, the key feature of its unique design.

“As we launch the Space Scooter® here in the U.S., it is our goal to help inspire a whole generation to put down their electronics and discover a new way to move and have fun outside,” said Marielle De Silva De Freitas, Global Marketing Manager, Space Scooter®. “By getting kids to join the Space Scooter® movement and literally count how many miles we’ve driven collectively across America on our Space Scooters, we’re encouraging them to get up, get active and get outside!”

At each event, kids will be able to experience a Space Scooter® for themselves as they’ll ride on a custom made track, complete with a mix of terrain and US landmarks. Each child’s ride time will be filmed, tracked and added to the official Space Scooter® Coast to Coast Challenge accumulator, which will display the cumulative distance covered throughout the tour.

The Space Scooter® Coast to Coast Challenge tour schedule is as follows:

 Early June (Brooklyn, NY)

Barclays Center

 June 5 (Miami, FL)

Marlins Park

 June 17 & June 18 (Minneapolis, MN)

Mall of America

 June 24 , June 25 & June 26 (San Diego, CA)

San Diego County Fair

Space Scooter® is available in a variety of colors and designs and comes in two models, the Space Scooter® X580 ($149) for ages eight and above and Space Scooter® Junior X360 ($99), the smaller kid-sized version, for ages five and above. Available at Toys“R”Us and, both models are foldable for easy storage, come equipped with a hand break and air suspension.

This innovative scooter is named Space Scooter® because it gives the rider the sensation of walking in space. The teeter-totter technology in the Space Scooter® is extremely popular among children and young adults, and its patented design has resulted in a new and unique way of moving, which helps consumers reconnect with the outdoors through a new way of transportation.

Space Scooter® currently is working with International soccer star Lionel Messi as a spokesperson. Messi, who shared a close connection with the theme outdoor play, and exercise, signed a three-year contact in 2014. Together, he helped design and promote his own special edition of the cool scooter under his growing Messi brand. In 2016, Messi and Space Scooter® launched a new Space Scooter® game, which is currently available for free download via the App store or Google play. Players can compete in the game to win amazing Messi themed prizes such as a meet-and- greet with Messi himself, signed Space Scooters, and other autographed collectibles.
