Discover the Best Electric Scooter for Your 8-Year-Old: Safe & Fun Rides Ahead!

February 28, 2024

Choosing the right electric scooter for an 8-year-old isn't just a matter of fun and games; it's about safety, durability, and ease of use. In the search for the perfect ride, it's important to consider factors such as speed limits, weight capacity, and scooter design to ensure you've made a selection that will provide a happy balance between fun and safety. We've scoured the market and evaluated a variety of electric scooters based on these criteria, and here's our top pick for your young rider.

Top Pick: Razor E100 Electric Scooter

The Razor E100 Electric Scooter is an excellent choice for kids around 8 years old. Its max speed of 10 mph is just right for this age, providing thrills without being overly risky. Plus, it features a hand-operated front brake for reliable stopping power.

Runner-Up: Segway Ninebot ZING E10

Another safe option with a bit more pep is the Segway Ninebot ZING E10. Suitable for ages 8 and up, it offers a slightly higher speed of up to 10 mph and is built with safety features like a rear braking system.

Also Consider: Levy Electric Scooter

The Levy Electric Scooter offers a fantastic balance of performance and portability with its lightweight frame and powerful motor. It's equipped with safety features and speed settings that make it appropriate for younger users.

Honorable Mentions:

  • Jetson Jupiter with LED lights for the cool factor and additional safety at dusk.

  • GOTRAX GKS, which activates with a kick-start and has a kid-friendly max speed.

  • Hiboy S2 Lite designed specifically for kids and teens, with a secure and stable ride.

Safety First

No matter which electric scooter you choose for your child, always ensure they wear appropriate safety gear, including a helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads. Regular maintenance and supervision are key to a safe and enjoyable experience.


The Razor E100 Electric Scooter steals the top spot for 8-year-olds, offering the best mix of fun and safety. Remember, the right electric scooter will not only delight your child but also bring you peace of mind. Happy scooting!
