Micro Sprite Kick Scooter in red

MSRP: $99

FITS KIDS: 8+ to adults 220 lbs!

FEATURES: High quality and durable, smooth ride, easy folding mechanism, large variety of color options

The Micro Sprite is a top-quality Swiss kick scooter designed with sophisticated style and built for smooth, precise performance. While the Sprite is a “traditional” kick scooter, it’s definitely a high-end version. It’s solid, durable, and most importantly, a smooth ride.

Our testers loved that they could ride “so fast” and didn’t “feel bumpy over all the sidewalk lines”. When they did small jumps off the curb, “the landing didn’t hurt” and it was “easier to jump high”. The scooter feels sturdy and fluid beneath you and doesn’t have the “clackity clack” joltiness that’s very common in kick scooters.

Micro Kickboard Mini Deluxe

Best for Toddlers & Preschoolers

MSRP: $90

FITS KIDS: 2 – 5 years old

FEATURES: Lean-to-steer functionality, adjustable-height handlebars, extra smooth and stable ride, available lots of colors.

The Micro Kickboard Mini Deluxe touts a winning combination of a 3-wheeled setup and extra-wide foot deck, all to make it as easy as possible for little ones to balance.  The foot deck is constructed of reinforced flexible fiberglass, which absorbs impact from the ground and makes for a smooth and quiet ride.

And with adjustable handlebars that allow young ones to grow with the scooter (10″ adjustability from min to max), while not cheap, the Mini is a worthy investment.

We especially love that the 3 wheels make it easy for really young riders on the Mini to build their confidence, but also provide a super cool sidewalk surfing ride as kids get more comfortable and adventurous.

Micro Kickboard Maxi Deluxe

Most Unique Ride

Micro Kickboard Maxi Deluxe kid's scooter

MSRP: $140

FITS KIDS: 5 – 12 years old

FEATURES: Lean-to-steer functionality, adjustable-height handlebars, extra smooth and stable ride, available lots of colors.

These Kickboards are not the scooters you grew up with! With their lean-to-steer functionality, the Maxi and Mini Deluxe create a unique ride experience similar to that of a skateboard by allowing the rider to carve turns, but with the added security of t-bar handlebars for extra stability and a boost of confidence. Its a bit like surfing the sidewalk!

And with that reinforced flexible fiberglass foot deck, it’s one of the smoothest and quietest rides around!

FULL REVIEW: Micro Kickboard Maxi and Mini Deluxe

LaScoota 2-in-1

Best 3-Wheel on a Budget

LaScoot 3 wheel scooter in light blue

MSRP: $70

FITS KIDS: 3 – 12 years old

FEATURES: Lean-to-steer functionality, adjustable-height handlebars, smooth ride, light up wheels

If you love the idea of the Micro Mini or Maxi but the price tag is out of your budget, the LaScoota 2-in-1 is a great alternative. With the same lean-to-steer functionality, the overall experience is pretty similar.

So what’s the real difference? The LaScoota’s handlebars have 4 distinct height settings, rather than the Micro’s continuously adjustable t-bar. From a quality perspective, the LaScoota is pretty basic. It’s not as easy to adjust the handlebar, doesn’t have any grip on the foot deck, and the deck is plastic rather than reinforced fiberglass.

All that said, our testers love riding the LaScoota and we consider it a great bang for your buck!

LaScoota Kick Scooter

Best for Older/Taller Kids

LaScoota kick scooter in black and aqua

MSRP: $75

FITS KIDS: 8+ years old

FEATURES: Ergonomically-shaped soft rubber grips, foldable, large wheels and suspension for smooth ride, carrying strap

The LaScoota kick scooter is very similar to the uber-popular Razor A5 Lux, but it’s actually a better scooter. And it’s cheaper! From the moment our testers hopped on the LaScoota, they were enamored! (Us adults too. 🙂 )

The ergonomically-shaped rubber grips are soft on hands and help prevent hand fatigue. They’re also more durable and easier to clean that typical foam grips. From a performance perspective, with larger wheels and tighter construction than the Razor A5, the LaScoota delivers a surprisingly quiet and smooth ride.

So great price + comfortable + smooth ride + lots of fun color options = huge winner in our book. The minimum handlebar height is about 1.5″ higher than the Razor A5, so if you have a shorter 8 or 9-year-old, you may want to look at the A5 instead.

Razor A5 Lux

Best Razor Classic

Razor A5 Lux scooter in blue

MSRP: $60

FITS KIDS: 8+ years old

FEATURES: Foldable, lightweight aluminum construction, large 8″ urethane wheels

The A5 Lux improves upon the ride quality of the classic Razor scooters by offering larger, 8″ urethane wheels that make running into those pesky pebbles and sidewalk cracks a non-event.  This lightweight scooter is geared towards kids ages 8 and older and touts a weight capacity of 220 lbs!  And to be honest, we’ve even been known to snag this from our kids and take it for a ride!


Razor A2

Best Value

Razor A2 kick scooter in silver and red

MSRP: $31 – 55

FITS KIDS: Ages 5+

FEATURES: Foldable, portable, lightweight yet strong aluminum construction, wheelie bar

The timeless Razor A2 is THE quintessential scooter design and offers a whole host of features while taking it easy on your wallet.  The spring-less front wheel shock system adds enough cushion to smooth out small bumps and cracks in pavement.  Weighing in at just 6 lbs., it’s light enough to be easily carried by young children, while still beloved by teens! And it even has a wheelie bar for simple tricks.

Simply stated, the Razor A2 is sturdy, lightweight, portable, and affordable.  With adjustable handlebars and a max weight capacity of 143 lbs, this scooter can grow with your child for many years.


Fuzion Pro X-3

Best Entry-Level Trick Scooter

Fuzion Pro X-3 trick scooter in blue and yellow

MSRP: $75

FITS KIDS: 7+ years old

FEATURES: Concave deck, versatile fork that handles 100 mm and 110mm wheels

If you’ve got a little daredevil that wants to try their skills at the skate park, the Fuzion Pro X-3 is your best option.  Built with the beginning enthusiast in mind, this affordable scooter features a 4″ wide concave deck (like a skateboard), making it easier to pull off cool tricks like tail whips and slides.

Fuzion’s well-designed aluminum frame has a weight capacity of up to 220 lbs, making this scooter a fun choice for larger kids and even adults who want to have some fun at the skate park.  You could spend significantly more money on a pro-level scooter with additional features, but this entry-level model can’t be beat for the price.


Fuzion Pro Z250

Best Entry-Level Trick Scooter – Older Kids

MSRP: $110

FITS KIDS: 8+ years old

FEATURES: Concave deck, versatile fork with 110mm wheels

An ungraded version of the Fuzion X-5, the Z250 has larger wheels that roll faster and smoother. Its wider deck and higher, wider handlebars will be a much better fit for older riders. Its graphics are also a bit more fancy, which can make all the difference for your tween.

FULL REVIEW: Fuzion Z250

Razor E100

Best Standard Electric Scooter

razor e100 electric scooter - red

MSRP: $160

FITS KIDS: 8+ years old

FEATURES: Kick-start motor for smoother starting, front and rear air tires

If your child is begging for an electric scooter, the Razor E100 is the most solid place to start. The kick-start motor requires the rider to be moving at 3mph before the motor actually kicks in. This prevents jolting starts from 0mph that can often throw a child (or even adult) right off the scooter. With two air tires (the E90 only has one plastic wheel), the ride is pretty smooth over all, and its limited top speed is best for young riders. When our testers raced their friends on traditional kick scooters for short distances, the electric scooter usually lost!

Be aware as a parent that electric scooters require maintenance and can be finicky. A motor and electric gadgets open up a can of worms as far as potential problems go. And always making sure that thing is charged… well, it’s not as easy as you think. :-)le

Razor Power A2

Best Adjustable/Foldable Electric Scooter

Razor Power A2 electric scooter

MSRP: $200

FITS KIDS: 8+ years old

FEATURES: Lightweight, adjustable height handlebars, foldable

Kids’ electric scooters have traditionally been super clunky, heavy, and a bit difficult to manage. Then along came the Razor Power A2! Lightweight and narrow, the Power A2 makes maneuvering an electric scooter so much easier for kids. It’s even foldable, which makes it simpler to store, or take along in the car.

With adjustable height handlebars, it’s also a better fit as your child grows.  And as the cherry on top, the Razor Power A2 works like a regular kick scooter when the power runs out!

How to Choose the Best Scooter for Kids

Kids’ scooters are generally pretty simple, but they aren’t all created equal. Here’s a short summary of the most important things to look for to find the best bike scooter for your child – whether they’re 2 or 10!


Kids’ scooters come in four general styles. Your traditional kick scooter, kickboards, trick scooters, and electric scooters.

(1) Kick Scooters for Kids

Kick scooters were made popular in the U.S. by Razor, and they’re the style of scooter that dominate the market. If you’re unsure which style of scooter to get, a standard kick scooter is a safe bet. Kick scooters for kids and kick scooters for adults offer the same riding experience, they just differ in size.

(2) Kickboard Scooters

Kickboard scooters from Micro Kickboards have recently become popular for their stability and unique ride. With three wheels instead of the traditional two, they help kids maintain their balance. Less worry = more fun! They also have a unique lean-to-steer function like a skateboard.

We’ve found kickboard scooters to be more popular with kids 8-years-old and under, as they tend to be slower than standard scooters. There are many brands that have since copied this kickboard style, but Micro remains the best quality kickboard scooter brand out there.

(3) Trick Scooters

Trick scooters are meant for rocking the half pipe and the bowl at the skatepark. With concave decks and no folding mechanism, they’re designed to take a beating through all the jumps, slides, tail whips, and inevitable crashes.

If your child has a need for speed and is constantly jumping off the curbs at home, a trick scooter may be right up his alley.

(4) Electric Scooters for Kids

Electric scooters are all the craze for both kids and adults! Special electric scooters made for kids have lower maximum speeds and also require a running start, rather than being able to throttle to max speed immediately.

Quality and Price

Like everything in life, you get what you pay for. If you want a high-quality, smooth-rolling, quiet scooter, stick to brands like Micro and Fuzion.

Razor scooters and many scooters you’ll find on Amazon will definitely get the job done for a lower price, but these scooters tend to clack noisily on the sidewalk, and have slightly bumpier rides.

Handlebar Height

Most kids’ scooters are generally similar in size, but entry-level scooters like the Razor A2 or the Fuzion Pro X-3 have shorter handlebar stems to accommodate younger riders.

Kick scooters and kickboard scooters have adjustable height handlebars to better fit kids as they grow, while trick scooters never adjust (for safety reasons). Most electric scooter handlebars don’t adjust, although some newer models do.

Foot Platform

Wider decks are increasingly popular for toddlers and preschoolers, making it easier for them to remain stable on the scooter. The Razor A2 and similar scooters have very narrow decks, which some young kids find difficult to keep a sure footing.

Scooters for older kids, like the Razor A5 and Micro Sprite, have slightly wider decks to accommodate kids’ growing feet.
