This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in August of 2018. If your kids have reached the age when they want you to give them some freedom, but you know they're still too young for total independence, an electric scooter can be a good compromise. We found models that are simple enough for children to operate while remaining relatively safe, so parents can have peace of mind. Of course, riders should wear protective gear at all times. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best electric scooter for kids on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 29, 2019:

Though electric scooters are a ton of fun, they can also be dangerous if you don't teach your child proper safety habits. These include wearing protective gear, like a helmet and pads, not riding in the street, and always attaching a light if they will be riding after dark. It is also important to strictly adhere to manufacturer guidelines regarding age.

During this update, we removed the Razor E100 because we already had the Razor E100 Glow and we didn't feel the former offered anything the latter didn't, especially when you get the inclusion of cool blue illumination for essentially the same price. We also removed the Aosom Moped due to availability issues.

The Razor Power A2, which is one of the lightest options around, makes its debut on our list this year. It maxes out at 10 MPH, so it is suitable for kids as young as eight or nine, but fast enough to keep 10- to 12-year-olds occupied. The Xprit Kick is another new addition. With a 200-pound capacity, a 10-mile range, and 12.4 MPH top speed, it is best suited to young teens who can handle the responsibility of traveling to their friends house on their own.

Other models that are best suited to older children include the Pocket Mod Miniature, Razor E300S, and Razor E325. If you've your little munchkin is just getting used to wheeled rides, the Kid TraxTwinkling, is a smart choice, as it has a stable three-wheel design and goes very slow.

If you landed on this list while looking for a gift for an older teen, you'll probably want to check out our list of regular electric scooters, just be aware that some of those travel extremely fast.
