Electric Scooters For Kids Buyers Guide
An electric scooter will be an excellent gift for a kid, but you want to make sure you get the right scooter. An electric scooter is more than just a motor and some wheels. You probably won’t want to get the same type of scooter for your 6-year-old daughter than you would for your 13-year-old son.
This electric scooter for kids buyers guide and tips will help you decide what is the best scooter for your child.
If your child is the type that feels the need for speed, then you will want to get them a scooter that moves. Most of the electric scooters for older kids max out at 15 mph. This speed is more than enough to satisfy their need for excitement.
However, if your child is younger, say maybe under age 11 then you might want to tone down the speed factor. A scooter that runs at 10-12 mph is plenty fast for them. And if they are young, then keep it under ten mph.
Look And Design
Nobody knows what your child or grandchild likes better than you. However when picking out a scooter that they think will be “cool,” make sure that you take into consideration things like the size and weight of the scooter. Are they able to pick it up for themselves?
You also need to think about the size of your kid. Will the scooter handle their weight? Will it be too small or too large for them? Do they want a seat or do they want to stand while riding? These things are essential in getting the best electric scooter that they will love for years to come.
Shoddy craftsmanship makes for a disappointing gift. This disappointment is why, as I mentioned earlier, I only chose electric scooters that have excellent craftsmanship and are loved by real people who own them.
The Razor scooters, for instance, are known for being constructed with steel-made frames; high-torque, chain driven motors and built-to-last batteries —as long as they’re adequately charged.
There is no getting around it. The more time your child can ride their new scooter, the more fun they are going to have. A scooter with poor battery life is going to be a disappointment.
That is why I have chosen scooters that have a long battery life. I also would suggest that you purchase a second battery so that while one is being used the other one can be charged so they can have double the fun.
