Foot scooter for a new 5 yr old?

My nephew is turning 5. I asked him today what he wants for his birthday (which is in a week) and he said he wanted a skateboard. His daddy said no, LOL (funny, because his daddy was a little dare devil as a kid himself).

So I asked about a skateboard with a handlebar and nephew said that would be cool too. Daddy ok'ed it, so I'm planning to get him one. He has a helmet already, and my mom is going to buy him a set of knee and elbow pads for his birthday as well.

So, scooter rec's? He'd really like a green one, but I'm not seeing a lot of options on amazon so I'm hoping maybe target or somewhere will have more options. We have every store available to us, big city. Are the scooters all about the same?

My five year old son has a Razor scooter and loves it. We got it for him last year and after getting used to it he became a pro at riding it.

Those are cute! But too $$, I was more looking at the radio flyer and similar styles in the $30 range.

We have razor scooters and a radio flyer. My kids love their razor scooters. The Target wish book has the razor berry scooter (different colors) listed as on sale for $29.99 and there is also a $10 off coupon in there that good until Wednesday. The lighted wheel one is listed on sale for $24.99 but the coupon is only for $29 and up

ETA The berry comes in green and yellow and if you don't have the coupon and want it just let me know. I'm happy to send it to you

Ours came in the paper a couple weeks ago. I have read that they aren't in stores this year but that the cashiers are supposed to have a scan sheet to use them at checkout of you didn't get one...maybe call your target and ask them?
