5 Factors to Consider When Buying a Scooter for Your Kid

Posted by Elisa Lam, Monday, May 18th, 2020 @ 10:22pm



  • Are you in the market for a scooter for your child?

    Children aren’t like adults, so you need not imagine that a scooter of your choice will fit them. In fact, you may think you’ve bought the best scooter for your kid and be surprised that he/she rejects it.

    Here are five factors to consider when buying a scooter for your kid.

    1.  The Scooter’s Weight

    Not all scooters have the same weight. The manufactures use different metals in their manufacture, and some of them may also have additional components that add more weight.

    Different brands of scooters, therefore. Have different weights. Children like light gadgets that are easy to carry around. Heavy scooters frustrate them because they will slow them down.

    Other things to consider include whether the scooter is collapsible to make it portable and whether it has a strap to help in carrying it. It is better to choose a light but strong scooter for your kid.

    2.  Control and Balance

    A child may not balance well on a scooter the same way an adult can. That’s why it’s good to choose a scooter that offers good balance and is easy to control. This will ensure the child feels comfortable while scooting.

    If your kids can’t ride scooters without stabilizers, then they cannot ride two-wheeled scooters. This is because the 2-wheeled scooters rely so much on the rider for a good balance. Riding a 2-wheeled scooter needs a lot of practice, and can only be suitable for older kids, not very young ones.

    So, you need to consider the age of the kid before you buy a scooter. If the kid is very young, buy a 3-wheeled scooter. These scooters are more stable because of their larger surface areas. They are great for kids who like to be independent and those who are not very patient.

    3.  Replacement parts

    Scooters break down once in a while. If you are lucky, you may repair one without having to buy a spare part.

    Sometimes, you may need some parts of the scooter to be replaced. When buying a scooter, choose one whose spare parts are readily available.

    4.  Longevity

    Children usually mishandle any gadget they play with. If you don’t buy a strong scooter, it won’t last. It is better to buy a durable scooter, even if it costs more than to buy a cheap one that won’t last.

    5.  Does the scooter produce some noise?

    Some scooters are very noisy. If you buy a noisy scooter, it will not only be irritating to the kid but also you. It will also cause you some issues with your neighbors.

    More often than not, it is the cheap scooters that make more noise, that’s because they are made of sub-standard materials that are also not put together well. Before you pay for a scooter, try it out and get a feel of the level of noise it produces. Pick one that’s more stealth, does not rattle, and is not clunky.

    Final Word

    When buying a scooter for your kid, remember that it is not yours. Consider what your child likes and what he/she dislikes. Some kids are very choosy and may reject the scooter just because they don’t like the color. That’s why it is wise to allow them to accompany you when you are going to purchase a scooter for them.

4 Factors to Consider When Buying Scooters or Hoverboards

Posted by Elisa Lam, Monday, May 4th, 2020 @ 2:35am

    Self-balancing scooters have become very important in our homes, especially the smart ones that can be commanded to move in a particular direction.

    When you are in the market for a hoverboard or a self-balancing scooter, there are some factors you need to consider before you purchase the machine. Some of these factors include:

    Top Speed

    How fast would you want to ride? This is a question you need to ask yourself before you buy a hoverboard or scooter. The top speeds for these machines differ. Having a faster machine means you’ll more fun, but at the same time, the battery will get drained faster.

    Low speed, on the other hand, means less fun, but it makes the battery stay longer. So, you need to balance between speed and battery consumption. On average, a speed of 8 miles per hour is the best. It helps you maintain a good balance and is friendly on your battery.

    Distance per Charge

    Distance per charge refers to the distance your machine will cover before the battery needs to get recharged. Distance per charge limits how long you can have fun with your machine before you plug it to recharge. The longer the distance per charge, the better. Another factor related to this is the charge time - how long does the battery take to get fully charged? The shorter the charging time, the better. 

    In most cases, self-balancing scooters and hoverboards will take at least two hours to get fully charged, and when fully charged, can cover about eight to ten miles before a recharge is needed. Check the specifications of the machine before you buy it.

    Weight Range

    Before you buy a scooter or hoverboard, you need to consider how much weight it will have to support. If you are very heavy, you’ll need a stronger machine. Most of these machines can support between 44 to 264 pounds.

    Some hoverboards can support weights beyond this upper limit. It is better to know your weight before you buy a scooter or hoverboard. A machine that can’t support your weight will break or collapse the moment you step on it. If you are buying for your kids, you can choose the ones that support less weight.

    Final words

    There are many brands of scooters and hoverboards in the market today. The above factors can help you decide which brand will serve your needs. Also, remember to choose a machine with UL2272-Certification and has many extra features like Bluetooth, LED lights, anti-slip pedals, among others.
