Truth be told, scooters and electric scooters are a very popular item on many holiday lists this year, but do you know what scooter works best for you?
First things first, who’s getting lucky and getting an electric scooter this year? That is the starting point for your search for the correct scooter.
In My Household
Take my family as an example. The possible scooter candidates would be my 12-year-old daughter, my four-year-old son, my husband, and of course, yours truly.
Safety first. Make sure that you are getting something that is age-appropriate for the recipient to avoid future injuries.
For the Little Ones
If you are looking for a scooter or ride-on toy for younger kids, then make sure to take your kid’s age into consideration, as well as his or her agility. Not all kids develop their agility and motor skills at the same pace.
Three-wheeled electric scooters provide extra stability and eliminate the need to kick to power the scooter. They are a great option for first-time riders by helping them gain control and balance.
For the Older Girls
There are so many options out there, but if you are looking for something extra fun and stylish for a girl, then the Pocket Mod might be just what you are looking for!
This high-performance, chain-driven electric-motor scooter with a vintage-inspired body can reach speeds of up to 15 mph.
While not as fast as a gas moped, it can really run, and it delivers a fun and comfortable ride.
While the design might be the first thing to catch your eyes, the variable-speed acceleration, comfy padded seat with hidden storage, and a built-in battery that can travel for about ten miles on a single charge are the reasons why this little but mighty ride is such fun.
For the Older Boys (Including Dad!)
Meet the E-Prime.
The E Prime is a gunmetal grey, sleekly designed scooter that can go up to 15 mph (24 km/h) and run for about 30 minutes continuously. This easy-to-use the scooter is a kick-to-start, high-torque, brushless, hub-driven vehicle with a thumb-activated electric engine, variable-speeds, and paddle controls.
The scooter is meant for anyone ages 14 and up, and honestly, it’s a lot of fun. (Yes, I have ridden on one!)
They can be used as an alternative form of transportation. For example, electric scooters, such as the Razor E-Prime electric scooter, can be used to commute.
For Mom or anyone in the family 16 and up, go green with this awesome Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter. The 16″ pneumatic tube tires on spoked wheels make for a very comfortable ride!
The scooter is easy to set up and drive, and it features a standard replaceable bicycle seat that allows you to adjust it for a more personalized fit.
The EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter can go up to 18 mph and can hold a charge for up to 40 minutes, making it very convenient and a nice alternative for short-distance errands and commutes.
The scooter is powered by electric charge, making it a nice eco-friendly choice. That is right, emissions-free transportation at your disposal.
To complete the look and make it even more comfortable and convenient, it offers a bamboo deck where you can place your feet while riding.
The frame features a powder-coated finish that protects your scooter. The basket on the back of the scooter is the cherry on top!
