As parents, we love that scooters help with gross motor development, balance, muscle strength, and are more compact than trikes or bikes, but we also want to make sure we’re putting them on the best equipment. To make sure you are buying the best scooters on the market, Institute of good economy Little Lab tested the most popular children’s scooters, from models for toddlers to teenagers, to find out best scooters for kids in 2021:

    How we test scooters

    The GH Institute considered several factors during its tests. After checking the strength and good construction of the materials, we looked at the ease of assembly. (Does it come fully assembled? Do you need any tools?) We also checked the weight for portability and how easy it is to store and carry. We then looked at how they ride: How smooth is the ride over rough terrain? How easy is it to steer and turn? How easy is braking? And finally, we also had young riders between the ages of 1 and 9 weighing in with their own thoughts — because they should have fun riding, too!

    Note: Currently, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) does not recommend e-scooters (aka those motorized scooters with a battery) for kids, due to a spike in emergency room visits. Instead, focus on non-motorized, human-powered scooters, and be sure to use a properly fitting helmet and pads.

What to look for when you buy a scooter

While all of these scooters for kids have passed our rigorous tests, there are some things you’ll want to consider when choosing which one is right for your family.

✔️ Your child’s size: Check the manufacturer’s recommended age range, weight limit, and height.

✔️ Adjustability: Are you looking for a scooter just for now or one that will grow with your child over time? Many scooters are height adjustable, and some even start out as ride-on toys for toddlers before progressing to scooters for big kids. A scooter that will survive several stages of growth may be more profitable over time.

✔️ Wheel type and number of wheels: In general, large wheels (120 125 mm), made of polyurethane, provides a faster and more stable ride, while the small wheels provide more agility. Younger children usually want a scooter with three wheels as they are more stable, while more experienced riders can handle just two.

✔️ Stability factors: If you have a small child or a new rider, wider decks and wider handlebars can help with balance, in addition to three wheels. Grommets also help children slide off.
