Are electric scooters OK for kids?

Electric scooters have become more popular in recent years as a new type of environmentally friendly transportation for adults and children. Also, many customers have asked us whether children can ride electric scooters. For this question, the answer is, of course, yes.


  • Security Features
  • However, when a child uses an electric scooter, safety is a primary consideration. One should look for electric scooters with safety features such as those designed for children, such as speed limiters, responsive braking systems, and stabilization mechanisms. These features help minimize the risk of accidents and injuries.

  • Power and speed
  • Electric scooters have a wide range of power and speed capabilities, and it is important for children to choose the right model of electric scooter for their age and size. In general, scooters with a maximum speed of 6 to 8 miles per hour are usually appropriate and safe for most children. Faster electric scooters can be dangerous for inexperienced riders, especially some younger children.

  • Size and weight restrictions
  • Make sure the scooter fits the size and weight of your child. Most electric scooters have a weight limit specified by the manufacturer. Riding a scooter that is too large or too heavy for a child may make it difficult to control and increase the risk of an accident.

In addition, it is important to give your child appropriate helmets, elbow pads, knee pads, and other safety equipment to help protect him or her from accidental situations.


In short, giving your child an electric scooter is enjoyable for most children, but considering the child's age, weight, and other factors, safety is the primary consideration. Selecting the right electric scooter for the child and wearing protective equipment can greatly improve riding safety.
