The Razor Jr. Lil’ Kick Scooter is the kid version of our favorite adult Razor scooter your kids admire. The scooter's stand-alone, three-wheel design makes for a more stable ride and the super slip-resistant deck keeps children on their feet. These are plus features ensuring the safety of your active kids.

2. Micro Kickboard Mini Scooter - Editor's Choice

Highest rated scooter for children aged 2 to 5, the Micro Mini Kickboard is a perfect fit for your kids. The Mini is sure to impress and is one of the best valued presents you could buy your child. It has a smooth gliding Micro Mini's 3 wheels, a low-to-the-ground deck and safe steering which all contribute to the performance stability of the Mini. That makes the Mini perfect for pre-schoolers and kindergartners.

The Mini has a lean-to-steer design where children steer by using their body weight to lean right and left and intuitively learn to lean into a turn. In return, your kids develop a sense of balance and coordination, which are prerequisites in many sports. That makes the Mini a unique and fun scoot for the kids.

The high-quality wheels and flexible fiberglass reinforced deck contributes to the bump-absorbing feature of this product, making the Micro Mini the smoothest, quietest ride available. It weighs only 3.3lbs and is recommended for children up to 44lbs and comes in a variety of vibrant colors. Certified by the CPSC, the Micro Mini is an excellent choice for children

3. Micro Maxi Kick Scooter

Swiss designed, the Maxi Kickboard is the highest rated scooter for ages 5 to 12 for its superior construction and durability. The wheels are made of the highest quality PU creating an incredibly smooth gliding performance.

Like the Micro Mini, the Micro Maxi uses a lean-to-steer technology where children navigate by using their body weight to lean right and left, automatically learning to lean into a turn. This steering feature, a curving and carving action, is comparable to skateboarding but with greater control and maneuverability.

The Micro Maxi offers two steering options, the Joystick for better lean-to-steer performance, or the traditional T-bar for easier balancing. Interchangeable handlebars are available as an accessory.

Safety certified by the CPSC, the Micro Maxi is recommended for school-age kids up to 110lbs. Its exceptionally strong construction is flexible and lightweight at 5.51lbs, making it a great cruising scooter for urban and suburban neighborhoods alike.

4. Razor Jr. Folding Kiddie Kick Scooter

Designed for young riders, the Razor Jr. Folding Kiddie Kick Scooter features an all-new design with a cool retro-inspired look. It features a three-wheeled design helping youngsters build coordination and maintain balance. The wide polypropylene deck is slip-resistant, and comes with a child safety latch on the folding mechanism for improved security, easy storage, and transportation.

The steering column, T-tube, and handlebars on the Razor Jr. Kick Scooter are constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum that ensures durability and a lightweight design at a 7.5lbs shipping weight. Razor Jr. Folding Kiddie Kick Scooter also provides easy-grip handles and ample foot room for easy riding.

With a weight capacity of 45lbs, this Razor Jr. Scooter is recommended for children between the ages of 3 to 5 years old.

5. OxGord Scooter for Kids

For beginners and inexperienced kids, Oxgord is an excellent purchase with its unique wide deck and 3-wheel design providing improved safety and stability. Durably constructed with metal and tough nylon composites, Oxgord remains one of the toughest competitors in the market.

Oxgord has quality, smooth PU wheels and high-quality bearings that reduce vibrations resulting in a quieter and slicker ride. The handles feature comfort grip pads and the folding design makes the scooter ideal for travel or storage.

The Oxgord kick scooter features an easily accessible rear brake. Your kids just need to press it, which then brings the scooter to a speedy secure stop. Plus, the large aluminum reinforced brake pedal is easy to use for quick and firm breaks.

Who could resist the pulsating multi-color lights of the all-new Razor Party Pop Scooter? With the Razor Party Pop Scooter’s 12 multi-color LED lights, your child will surely be eager to step on this scooter and take a tour through the neighborhood.

It is worth noting that batteries are required for the light effects to work. The product comes with replaceable lithium batteries and it requires some assembly.

7. Mongoose Expo Scooter

When you are hesitant to buy a bike for your kids, buying a scooter with quality like that of a bike is one perfect decision. Besides, some active and adventurous kids are easily frustrated with the inline skate wheel scooters that clunk over sidewalks and get hung up on the smallest obstructions like pebbles or debris. Good news: Mongoose Expo may have just surpassed that.

With Mongoose Expo and its 12in tires, you can go almost every place a bike can go, from smooth grass to loose pavements with grit. That’s a top-level terrain capability.

The bike style handbrakes make stopping intuitive. The large wide foot deck brings an improved and easy balance and better stability while gliding. It also has caliper hand brakes, offering a more confident speed control. Absent in almost all other scooters in the market, the Mongoose Expo has an installed BMX freestyle handlebar with 360-degree brake rotor and pegs. The downside is that it is quite heavy at almost 26lbs shipping weight and it takes some time to put together. Nevertheless, the Expo will fit in at the bike park with the included pegs.

8. Globber Primo 3 Wheel Adjustable Height Scooter

The Globber 3 Wheel Adjustable Scooter easy-activation mechanism is pretty remarkable. Thanks to its patented secure direction button lock located on the front of the deck, the scooter moves in a straight line. This feature is very helpful if you want your kids to learn how to balance. In case the secure direction button is not locked, ball bearings offer front wheel pivot support to simplify assisted steering. In turn, the low deck height delivers a stable ride.

A feature unique to the Globber is the X-Cross deck design, which improves the turning performance. There will be fewer worries for your child since strength to the steel-plate reinforced deck is doubled. The maximum weight capacity it can accommodate is 110lbs, which is more than double other kid scooters.

The high-rebound PU wheels with ABEC-5 bearings allow your child to roll along smoothly and he or she can safely hang on tightly to the dual-injection grips. The T-bar handlebars can be easily adjusted to your desired height and with the simple 3-position latch system design, the Globber lasts as your little one grows.

The Globber 3 Wheel Adjustable scooter weighs only 5.11lbs and is recommended for ages 2 – 6 years. It is easy to assemble with no tools required.

9. Vokul VK-1281F LED light 3 Wheel Mini Kick Scooter

The scooter features a triangular 3-Point ABS system with two anti-abrasive shock-absorbing PU wheels on the front and one wheel on the back. Just like what we love about the Razor Party Pop Scooter, the front wheels are specially designed with beautiful flashing lights.

The Mini Scooter features ABEC-5 chrome steering for a smoother and easier turn which gives your child more control. The patented suspensions on the front fork provide a smooth ride with improved balance and stability. Aside from that, the rear wheel has a Fender/Spray protection quick-react brake ensuring a quick stop once held by your kids.
