And proving scooting's not just child's play was Ava's mum Deborra. Apparently each member of the family has their own set of wheels

Famous mums and dads have joined parents across the globe in jumping onboard the current scooter craze. Hugh Jackman's family has one each, and Uma Thurman has also been getting in on the wheelie fun.

Zipping along on two wheels in a Snow White costume, Hugh's daughter Ava had no problem keeping her film star dad on his toes when the pair hit the streets near their New York home this week.

With its wide pavements and anything goes approach the US city seems to lend itself particularly well to the pastime.

Fellow residents like Michelle Williams' daughter Matilda and Julianne Moore are keen scooter girls as well. Magnolia actress Julianne, a mother of two, looked quite the pro, whizzing to an appointment on hers recently.

And wheely mania isn't confined to the Big Apple. Jason Donovan took the strain out of the school run by getting his children Jemma and Zach to hop on to theirs as they headed for their prep school in London's Notting Hill.
