2. Fisher Price Grow-with-Me 3-in-1 Skateboard

Ages: 4-8

Love this! Second among the top 10 skateboards for kids this year is the Fisher Price Grow-with-Me 3-in-1.

This toddler-friendly skateboard is a 3-fer that shifts and customizes as your child develops, learns, and grows. There are three stages, one beginning with special wheels and a handle. This phase loses the handle in stage two. And stage three is the classic skateboard with tucked-in wheels and low-rider deck.

4. PLAYSHION Complete Retro Cruiser Plastic Skateboard

The PLAYSHION Complete Retro Cruiser falls in at #4 of the ten best skateboards for 2016 and into 2017.

Oh-so pretty in pink, blue, purple, or red…

The Retro Cruiser is a skateboard classic at 22-inches with traditional plastic wheels and a max weight limit of 220 pounds.

What I love about this particular skateboard is the shoe-grip deck.

**Note – a nice “everyday” skateboard to get around on, and if you are looking for something more for cruising around, but based on what I read, this might not be the best one to try and learn more advanced “tricksters” on. 🙂

5. Ripstik Caster Board

Price: $49.87
You save: $50.12 (50 %)
16 new from $49.8715 used from $38.67

Ages: 8 and up

A different version of #1 (above) – the Ripstik Caster Board also holds a strong place among this year’s top skateboards for older kids (ages 8 and up).

The original Ripstik, this skateboard began a revolution in tricks and smooth cruisin’. The deck pivots, accelerates, and performs with the slightest, controlled leans of body weight. I dig the snowboard-esque sidewalk-carving abilities, spiky traction pads, and overall anti-slip design.
