Scooters are getting a make-over in 2013 courtesy of emerging UK company Scootaheadz and its range of funky, cartoony animal characters.

Designed especially to attatch to a scooter's T-bar there are four designs in the Scootaheadz collection, including blue and green dinosaurs timmy T-Rex or Danny Dino, and pink and purple ponies Pippa and Lola.

Each character is 100 per cent waterproof, solid and easy to clean, well suited says Scootaheadz, to the British climate and can survive snow, hail, rain and even sunshine.

Founder, Stephanie Westphal, said: "I came up with the idea for Scootaheadz when my little girl wanted to attach a toy to her scooter.

"I didn't want it to get dirty or spoilt so I decided there and then to come up with a fun accessory children could personalise their scooter with that would be totally hassle-free for me.

"I knew it had to be fully weatherproof, strong and solid to survive not only the British weather but also the rough and tumble of riding a scooter.

"I am so pleased with the final result and I hope families across the UK will love them too."

Each head comes with an in-built t-shaped mechanism that Scootaheadz says fits securely to almost any scooter's handlebar.

Scootaheadz are retailing at £14.99 and available from Jojo Maman Bebe and Amazon.
