From The Manufacturer

This cool children's beginner skateboard is a great choice for any turtle fan who wants to start learning the balance and coordination that skateboarding helps kids acquire. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 21-Inch Wood Cruiser Skateboard from PlayWheels has a brightly colored deck that features vivid graphics of your child's favorite characters. The 21-inch long 9-ply maple deck is thick, sturdy, and gives an aspiring boarder just the right amount of space to start riding with some room to keep growing. The special grip surface helps keep feet firmly planted on the board while the 6-inch deck width is great for smaller feet to practice balancing and ensure proper footing while riding. A single kick tail makes for easy maneuvering and offers a safe way to brake. PVC-injected 50mm x 27mm wheels and nylon bearings stand up to long use and deliver a very smooth ride whether at the skate park, on the sidewalk, or just practicing in the driveway. Recommended for ages 5-10 years, supports weight up to 100 pounds.

What experts liked

My little aspiring skateboarder loves this board. It had survived a 15 foot drop off of my deck, numerous trick attempts, & an attempt at making it a chew toy by a very large dog. It's a keeper.
- Oh So Savvy Mom
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, making it a great pick for kids whose parents have a bit of 90s nostalgia! The board is 21 inches long and 9 inches wide, with a grip surface to help with balance. The board is made of wood, and weighs just 2 pounds. And at just $20, the price can’t be beat!
- Asher & Lyric
This bright and bold skateboard follows a simple design, making it suitable for beginners to the sport. It’s a single kicktail design that offers great control and is easy to brake, which is why it’s so suitable for beginners.
- Little One Mag
The board is 21-inches and made from plywood. This length is just enough room to aspiring skaters to start the sport, as well as being suitable for maintaining balance. Plywood is incredibly durable and can withstand hours of practice.

What experts didn't like

The problem is the bearings are so cheap they will not roll without a fight. I made sure that the axle nuts weren't the issue. They weren't. Just cheap bearings that may take some time to break in. Not good for teaching a 5 yr old.
- Oh So Savvy Mom
Amazon rates this board for ages 5-10, but many reviewers report using it for their three- and four-year-olds.
