Stunt Scooters for 5, 6 and 7 Year Olds




Stunt Scooters for 5, 6 and 7 Year Olds



 



There is a bit of a lack of stunt scooters on the market for younger children aged 5, 6 and 7. This may be for a few reasons. Firstly many kids this age are happy just scooting along. Secondly as kids this age are lighter and smaller the impact they make on the scooter with the jumps and tricks they do isn't as harsh as older, heavier kids and teens.

Stunt scooters tend to be more expensive as they have reinforced and more durable parts to withstand the abuse from the stunts but materials have to be light as well. Therefore many parents may be reluctant to spend the extra on a stunt scooter that will last just a couple of years and will be used the majority of the time just for crusing.

Having said this if you have a younger child that wants to do tricks and jumps on their scooter, it's important  to find a scooter that will take some abuse. There are a couple of scooters on the market that will be suitable for 5, 6 and 7 year olds. There are some options below.

In a hurry or just curious....

✔️ This scooter is the most popular one on this page with our readers.

The are three things to consider when buying a stunt scooter for a younger child:

1)  You want to look for is a scooter with a handlebar which will come up about waist height or lower on a younger child. If he handlebar is too high the scooter may be difficult to control.

2.) The scooter needs to be as lightweight as possible. Stunt scooters need to be strong and durable so they tend to have heavier parts, but a stunt scooter which is too heavy will be too difficult for a youngster to do tricks on.

3.) The deck length should ideally be shorter than a standard deck so that it's easier for young kids to manage.

4.) If you're buying for a young child some (not all) scooter bars can be cut down after purchase so this is another option to consider.

It's also worth checking out the guide to stunt scooters for kids to find out what all the specification and technical terms mean.

Other Considerations When Choosing a Scooter

Coolness factor - at this age kids may be concerned that they need to have a scooter that looks cool. So its worth checking in with them about the kinds of styles they like and prefer. Plus reading reviews from other purchasers to see if their kids liked the scooters. Stunt scooters are probably considered to be cooler at this age and they can be used for cruising too so this may effect your decision.

Sturdy - my almost 10 year old primarily uses his scooter for getting for a to b. However he naturally tries little jumps on his scooter so he definitely needs something robust to withstand the abuse he gives it. ​

​An older child might be covering longer distances on their scooter when crusing so they may benefit from a scooter with larger wheels. Scooters with larger wheels are great for going quickly and covering longer distances. So, are worth considering if the commute to school is a longer distance or they may be travelling further distances as they get older (perhaps to high school).

More Types of Scooter

Space Scooters
The space scooters deck is curved and the back is much higher than the deck at the front. To use it hop on the deci, then shift your weight between your feet to get going. Essentially you have to pump the platform up and down. However, the space scooter can also be used like a traditional kick scooter, giving two scooter experiences in one.

Scissor Scooters
A scooter that has become more popular in recent years is the scissor scooter. This type of scooter has two footplates, one for each foot so you don't propel the scooter with a foot like you do with a traditional push scooter. Instead, you either move your legs in and out, move from side to side or wiggle your hips to move the scooter.

These scooters are fun and they are great for building leg muscle and improving co-ordination. I'm not sure they will replace the traditional kick scooter but are perfect for taking down the park for some fun. ​

As it's so lightweight it can easily be carried when needed. It's a good choice for the school run too.

What To Look for When buying a stunt scooter

How much you spend and the features you look for when buying a stunt scooter will very much depend on the what the kid wants to use it for and how much they are into scootering and doing tricks and jumps.

Beginner / Low stunt level use
If they are a beginner and just want to start doing a few tricks. Or perhaps they mainly use their scooter as to get from a to b but may do a few jumps or bash it about a bit on the street than one of the beginner style stunt scooters from Madd gear, Slamm or Grit will be a good choice.

Intermediate Riders

If they are a regular at the skate park and are using their scooters a lot, it's worth spending a bit more to make sure the scooter lasts. Again the Madd gear, Slamm and Grit brands are some good choices but look for the mid range price scooter starting at around £119. Other brands may include Lucky, District, Envy and Blunt.

Advanced Riders

An advanced scooter rider will probably have a clear idea of exactly what they want so it's worth consulting them.  Some scooters will start at around £200 plus but they will be designed to be lightweight with extra reinforcement. The detail on the design of the scooters will be find on the wheels and bars.

Ethan - Age 11 on The Slamm Urban VII

The Slamm Urban VII was the scooter we chose for our son on his 11th birthday. He's not very serious about doing tricks and stunts. He mainly uses his scooter to cruise around. However he does do a few jumps and gives his scooter some punishment moving around on it. Therefore I wanted to get him a scooter that was sturdy, durable and could take some roughness. The Slamm Urban VII seemed to fit the bill and he really does love it. Also if he decides he wants to take his scooter to the skate park he has the option to do it with this scooter.


 


 


 

What Features are important on a Stunt scooter for 11 and 12 Year Olds?

There are lots of things to know and look for when buying a stunt scooter. Here are some essentials explained:

  • Always make sure the bar is a one piece
  • Metal solid (alloy) core wheels are better than plastic core wheels. They will last longer. Alloy cores tend to be standard on all mid range stunt scooters.  The higher end metal end cores will weigh less, so it will depend on how much  you want to spend.  Also look for high quality PU wheels.
  • Bar height - the bar height on stunt scooters generally sit at or just below the hips.
  • Decks - decks come in all different lengths and sizes. Wider decks are better for street riding. So if he / she likes to ride his scooter along the streets as well as do tricks a wider deck is worth looking out for.
  • Compression -  scooters for beginner riders will use a threaded compression system, which clamps the bars onto a threaded fork.  More advanced scooters will have different types of compression. Look out for HIC ( Hidden Internal Compression), ICS (Inverted Compression System) and SCS (Standard Compression System). All of these compression systems are different but offer more resiliance, robustness and performance when compared to threaded fork systems.

Best Two Wheel Scooter

JD bug are the leading brand of scooters in the UK and they are of excellent quality and top rated too. For 5 and 6 year olds there are 2 choices of JD bug scooters to consider. The first is the JD Jr Street Scooter MS100 which is designed for 4 to 8 year olds and the JD original street scooter. The features of each are discussed below.





JD bug junior street scooter is a great first scooter for kids and is designed for young kids (around age 4) to around 8. It's a fab scooter for the school run and travelling from a to b.

It has 120 mm wheel at the front and 100mm at the back and ABEC 5 bearings which give a fast, smooth ride. The bigger the wheel the faster you can go without lots of kicks so the 120mm wheel (which is larger than standard) means it's a great for scooter for cruising for younger school age children.

It is foldable so you can carry it for youngsters when they have had enough and want to walk. It's fairly light to carry at 2.3kg, not the lightest scooter out there but not too bad!

​The handlebar is adjustable so will grow with your child. The maximum handle bar height is 84.5cm and the minimum is 63 cm. The wheels are made of PU with a hardness of 88A so are very durable.

The smaller footplate ( 44 cm x 90 cm) makes is a good choice for 4 to 8 age range too. ​
​This would probably be a great choice for a 5 year old - perhaps for a 5th birthday gift. It comes in many colours for boys and girls.
It also scores highly on value for money, giving excellent features at such a low price point.

JD Bug Original Street Scooter



For six year olds it's worth considering the JD Bug original street scooters too. They have a maximum weight of 100kg so adults on the lighter side can use these too and it means the scooter will last for years.

It's another scooter that's great for the school run. It's great for cruising with100mm/86A Clear Wheels wheels with ABEC 5 Bearings. It's foldable and lightweight too so you can easily carry it when you need to and it's easy to store. There's also a carry handle which obviously makes it easy for carrying too.

It's heavier than the JD Bug MS100  (featured above) at 2.7 kg, so heavier to carry. Having said this it's quite lightweight compared to other two wheel scooters for similar age ranges.

The handlebar is height adjustable so this scooter will grow with your child. The minimum handlebar height is 630mm and the maximum is 950mm. It is more expensive than the MS100 featured above but as the handlebar can adjust to 950mm so it's likely to last your child a lot longer. The footplate is 510mm x 100mm so slightly larger than the Junior scooter above making it a better ride for slightly older school age children.

Not sure whether go for the JD Bug Original Street scooter of the JD Bug Junior Street scooter. Then check out a comparaison of the junior vs the original JD Bug.

Best 3 Wheel Scooter

3 wheel scooters are great for kids who have never had a scooter before, as well as kids who are less confident about using a scooter. Or perhaps they just like three wheels. They extra wheel tends to mean they are a slightly safer than their two wheel counterparts.





The Maxi Micro is officially designed for ages 6 to 10 but it would be fine for a 5 year old too. If you're unsure you could also consider the mini micro scooter which is by the same company but made for 3 to 5 year olds. Check out a comparison between the mini and the maxi micro here. 

The maxi micro is a well designed scooter made with high quality materials so offers a smooth, quite and quick ride and is durable too.

Read an indepth analysis of the maxi micro on our 3 wheel scooters for older children page.

Also, check out a comparison of the maxi micro and micro sprite 

Iscoot



Another 3 wheel scooter designed for older children is the iscoot. It has some good features (PU wheels, adjustable handlebar and the scooter folds).

It is a lot cheaper than the maxi micro but there may be a few compromises on the features.

Read more about the iscoot featured on the 3 wheel scooters for older children page.

Stunt Scooters

Some 5 year olds are very keen to try and start doing some small tricks and jumps on their scooter. If this is the case, it's important to get them a stunt scooter. Stunt scooters are designed to be sturdy and withstand any abuse from tricks and jumps. They do tend to be more expensive as the materials used are stronger but still need to be lightweight for easier control. If you are considering buying a stunt scooter it's worth reading our stunt scooter buying guide and we also have a page with some suggestions of stunt scooters for younger children. Also find a good suggestion for a beginner stunt scooter below.

Many stunt scooters are designed for kids aged 8 years and up, although this is changing and there are some stunt scooters designed for the younger child from age 5. If you do want a scooter that a younger child can do some tricks and jumps on, look for a high durability scooter with a one piece handlebar. It shouldn't be able to fold or be height adjustable to withstand the hard wear needed for jumps and tricks. Read my guide on stunt scooters to see what you should be looking for.
Also check out my article on stunt scooters for 5, 6 and 7 year olds.

Slamm Tantrum VI Scooter



This stunt scooter has been designed for a younger rider with a lower bar. It is aimed at kids from aged 6 plus.

The lower bar at 19.5" (49.5cm) means it's designed to be a good height for young kids to be able to control when doing stunts.

The scooter has been designed to be strong with a reinforced deck with strengthened neck, oversized triple clamp, and tapered headset, so will take all the abuse that younger kids. However, it's also lightweight enough for smaller kids to manoeuvre although stunt scooters are generally always heavier than kick scooters.

​Perfect for younger kids.

Scissor scooters  are a fun type of scooter that you see a lot of kids on. They have two footplates and you place a foot on each one. You can either move the scooter by moving your legs in and out. Or you can move your hips to get the scooter to move. They are best on flat, smooth surfaces but not for use for tricks or in skate parks.  Lots of fun and a great way to keep youngsters fit and active.

Scissor Scooters



Scissor scooters are the new rage at the moment and lots of kids are using them. I haven't been on one myself although my niece and nephew have both got one which they seem to enjoy. Apparently they are very good for building the muscles in your legs. I'm not sure they will replace the traditional scooters in getting from a to b, but are good to have as an extra fun scooter to take to the park or to play with friends outside.

There are quite a few models to choose from but if you're looking for a younger child from 5 to 6,  make sure you get one that isn't too big. There are generally scissor scooters aimed at kids from around 3 to 6 or at age 5 plus and then other scissor scooters aged for older kids from 7 plus or 9 plus.

Electric Scooter


Razor Power Core E90 Electric Scooter



Another thing to consider is an electric scooter which are super fun.
To get an electric scooter its probably advisable that the child is already very confident on a push scooter. A 5 year old may be a bit too young, but a confident 6 year old will most likely love it.
The scooter featured can reach up to 10mph.
It will give up to 70 minutes continuous use on one charge.
It requires a kick start to begin the motor.
It also features a high-torque hub motor, push-button throttle, hand-operated front fender brake, urethane front wheel, and retractable kickstand.
The motor is maintenance free.

Dirt Scooter


<

Dirt scooters are designed to go off road on rougher terrain.
Most dirt scooters are designed for older kids.
However, the bikestar scooter  featured opposite is a great option for younger children.

It's designed for kids from aged 5 years. The scooter features air filled 25.4cm (10 Inch) tyres on quality rims. The footplate is smaller than a standard scooter so perfect for smaller legs.

It's a good option for scooting on surfaces such as gravel and grass, so can be used in the garden as well as on the pavement.

More 2 Wheel Scooters

There are some great 2 wheel scooter for 5 and 6 year olds who've never ridden a scooter as well as kids who are on their second or third scooter. Many 2 wheel scooters for this age have additional fun features such as scooter with lights and ones which also feature characters from their favourite TV shows or movies.

Top Of The Range Choice





The Micro Sprite scooters are 2 wheel scooters from the same company that makes the maxi and micro mini scooters.

These have high quality PU wheels with ABEC 5 bearings and a durometer of 82A. This all contributes to a scooter with a smooth, quiet and quick ride.

The handlebar is adjustable from 660mm to 960mm. . The scooter folds for easier carrying and storage too.

It weights 2.7kg. The steering on this scooter is excellent. It steers like a bike with 360 degree turning.

Another plus point is the kick stand which most scooters don't have, so it can stand up when you store it. ​
The Micro Sprite is aimed at kids from aged 5 to 12 years and will grow with your child too. It is is more expensive then other scooters but it's an investment. It can last for years and be passed on to younger siblings too.

There are some great specifications on this scooter such as the 100mm 88A nylon core high rebound PU wheels are both great for doing tricks and cruising along the streets.

The scooter featured is aimed at the 5 to 10 age group. It is height adjustable and is aimed at kids between 1.1 meters and 1.6m. The maximum weight is 50 to 80kg.

Just remember it's best used on a smooth, flat surface.

Character Scooters



If you're after a fun, cheap scooter then there are lots of character scooters available.

Generally these are a lot cheaper than other scooter.
They are fun to ride but normally the quality isn't quite as good and they may not last too long. However, they can be really appreciated by kids.

The scooter featured is a Frozen inline scooter and is typical of a character scooter.

It features a light weight frame, easy grip handles, height adjustable handle bars and folds down for storage

Razor S Scooter



Razor is another well know and popular brand of scooter.

What To Consider When Buying a Scooter for 5 and 6 Year Olds

Foldable / Lightweight Scooter - at ages 5 and 6, there were times when my son had enough of using his scooter and he'd ask me to carry it. This is why a scooter that folds was still very useful. A folded or lightweight scooter is easier to carry. However, if they want a scooter to do tricks on they will need one without a folding mechanism. A scooter with a folding  mechanism is not strong enough to withstand the impact from jumps, stunts and tricks.

A scooter that offers a smooth and fast ride - at ages 5 and 6, children want to be able to cruise fairly quickly. Some 3 wheel scooters can be built so safely that they are slow and difficult to maneouvre. Lightweight 3 wheel scooters are normally faster than the sturdier and heavier counterparts.
If you see an ABEC rating for the bearings, a higher rating generally means a faster and smoother ride. The best scooters usually have an ABEC rating of about 5.
Wheels made of high quality polyurethane (also seen as PU) generally offer a smoother and quicker ride too.

A safe scooter - safety is should be a top factor for anybody buying a scooter for a child. However, if safety is a major concern there are extra features to look out for. Look for a footplate which is close to the ground making it easier to get on and off and there's less room to fall. Make sure that the scooter is the right size. The handlebars should come up to about waist height, this means that it is easier to control. A smaller footplate is another features which means that it's easy for a child to control the ride. Look for a foot brake that is easy to use and make sure they know how to use it. Also don't forget helmets, knee and elbow pads and little ones can wear bright clothes and reflective jackets so they can be easily seen by cars and other pedestrians.

Price and Longevity - you can buy scooters that will last your child for quite a few years. These are normally more expensive but will last a few years and you should be able to sell them if you decide to buy a different scooter. You may decide that getting a cheaper scooter that will last one or two years is a better decision. If your child is likely to grow lots, move from a 3 wheel scooter to a 2 wheel scooter or perhaps grow a lot in the next few years, it may be worth getting a less expensive scooter and buying a new one in a couple of years time.

Scooters for 7 and 8 Year Olds




What To Look for When Buying the Best Scooter for a 7 or 8 Year Old?

We bought a scooter for my son for his 7th birthday. The top priorities for my 7 year old boy are a quiet, smooth and fast ride and one that could withstand a few tricks.
In a hurry or just curious....

✔️ This scooter is the most popular one on this page with our readers.

Whether you're looking for a kick, electric scooter or stunt scooter for your son, daughter or any child of 7 or 8 years old, there are many factors to consider. Check out our buying guide for more information.

JD Bug Original - Great for the School Run



One of the best picks for 7 year old boys or girls is the JD bug street scooter featured. It's a good choice for cruising along the streets.Its also the perfect choice if you want a scooter that folds (easy to carry -great for the school run as you can carry it home). It also has a carry strap for easy carrying which I haven't seen on any other scooters.The quality and construction look decent too . It has 100 mm wheels. with ABEC 5 bearings and made from aircraft grade aluminium. Check out more details on the 2 wheel scooters page. 

Scooter buying Guide

When purchasing a scooter for age group, consider the following features:

A quick, smooth, quiet and fast ride - my 7 year old likes to go quickly and we wanted to make sure we didn't get a noisy rattley scooter. We were looking for quality. To choose a scooter which offers a smooth and fast ride, look at the material of the wheels and the construction of the scooter. Look for high quality urethane or PU wheels and ABEC bearings with a rating of 5 or more. A higher ABEC rating will generally offer a smoother and faster ride. Standard wheels of a scooter are generally around 100mm. However, if the wheels are slightly larger (110mm or more) than the scooter will tend to offer a smoother ride too. This is because larger wheels tend to go over cracks / bumps in the pavement more easily. Larger wheels are better for travelling as they are more comfortable and offer a quicker ride along pavements. The larger the wheels the quicker you go.

However, larger wheels aren't the best for doing tricks and stunts, so if this is important go for a standard size. Consider the construction and materials the rest of the scooter is made of too. Strong but lightweight materials are best.

Longevity - we have a skate park near us and we wanted something that my son could do tricks on over the next couple of years if possible. Ultimately we wanted a scooter he could cruise on but also one which could do stunts and take some abuse.

Folding mechanism - folding mechanisms are handy to fold, store and carry scooters. However, they can take away from the strength of the scooter as a handlebar which doesn't fold can take much more abuse. As my son was getting older, I decided to go for a scooter without a folding mechanism which was stronger and sturdier.

Stunt Scooter Or A Scooter For Cruising?

Many kids this age ask for a scooter that they are able to do tricks on and my son was one of them. So do you get a stunt scooter or not. Here are some questions that will help you decide.

Has your child expressed a desire to do tricks? 

Ulitmately the decision as to whether to get a stunt scooter or not will depend on whether your child wants to do tricks on the scooter. If they do, you will need to get a scooter designed to do tricks as a general push scooter may not be able to withstand the impacts needed for jumps and tricks. If they just want to use it to get from a to b, go with a normal scooter

What is your budget? 

Stunt scooters tend to be more expensive as they require more heavy duty materials to construct. This means they are generally more expensive. However, it also generally means they stand up to more abuse and last longer too.

Will you need to carry the scooter a lot?

Stunt scooters are a lot heavier than other scooters. So if you suspect you may be carrying this scooter a lot for your child on the school run, you may prefer a scooter just used for crusing.

Age range

Most stunt scooters are aimed at kids aged 8 plus. However, we bought a stunt scooter (the Razor Pro XXX - featured below) for my son aged 7. He is on the tall side but he has managed with his stunt scooter very well. The main thing when looking at the scooter is the handlbar height. The handlebar should come up around waist height for the best control and safety. If it does on your 7 year old, they should manage well with the scooter.

How long do you intend to have the scooter for?

If you intend for them to have the scooter for the next few years, it might be worth getting them a stunt scooter which they can use to cruise on at the moment but have the ability to do tricks on in the next few years if they wish too. However, if you think you may buy another scooter within the next few years you may prefer to get them a cheaper or traditional scooter that you will replace if they want one for doing stunts.

Selection of Stunt and Cruising Scooters For 7 and 8 Year Olds

Find below a selection of both stunt and kick scooters suitable for 7 and 8 year olds.

A Great 2 Wheel Kick Scooter - Micro Sprite



I am a fan of the Micro Sprite scooters as they are well made. They feature has 100mm PU, 87A wheels and ABEC 5 bearings. It has a strong aluminium frame but is super lightweight for a scooter so makes it easier for kids to control and easier for parents to carry / transport  if needed.

It folds which makes it great for putting in the car, storing or carrying if the need arises.

Its perfect for cruising although if you want a scooter for tricks its best to go follow a stunt scooter instead.

It also features a brake at the back.

​It also features an adjustable handlebar so will be the perfect height for each child and it will grow with .each child too.
It has a kickstand so the scooter can be stored standing up which is very useful. No more scooters laying around the drive or garage.

It comes in lots of different colours too.

Not sure whether to go for the JD Bug original street scooter or the Micro sprite. Compare the JD Bug vs Micro Sprite to help you make up your mind.

Stunt Scooters

Most stunt scooters are designed for kids age 8 plus, so if you're buying for an 8 year old you have a lot of choice. If you are buying for a 7 year old or a smaller child, check out this article on scooters for 5, 6 and 7 year olds which has a couple of options of stunt scooters for younger children.
Stunt scooters tend to be more expensive. They have to be stronger to withstand the extra abuse they get from jumps and tricks. However, they do tend to last longer, so an extra investment sometimes pays off in the long run.

We got a stunt scooter for our son's 7th birthday. It ticked all the boxes for us.  Unfortunately they no longer make the version of the Razor Pro Scooter which we bought but there are some other good stunt scooter options below. A stunt scooter is more expensive but as they are hardwearing, they and worth considering if you have the budget. Plus, I wanted to buy a scooter that will last for years and so far (3  years later!!) our Razor Pro is holding up really well and I expect this to last years and maybe be the last scooter we actually buy our son.



Stunt Scooter XV Pro Street Model



Great Budget Option - Bear in mind that you often get what you pay for but this scooter should be fine for beginner and younger users doing their first stunts and has some good features.​Kids starting out doing tricks will be lighter and give the scooter less punishment when doing jump and stunts. Therefore, the scooter doesn't have to be as hard wearing with heavy duty parts as maybe a scooter for an older child or teenager - so you can afford to spend a bit less too. Although you may have to replace the scooter as they get older if they want to keep doing tricks.

Wheels - The scooter has 100mm PU wheels with a hardness of 88A so they should be hard wearing to withstand the impact of any tricks. It features ABEC 9 bearings on the wheels which offer a smooth ride.  It does have plastic cores (metal cores are better for withstanding the impact for tricks. However if kids are just planning on doing a few odd jumps and also scooting around it could be a great choice.

Clamp - It features a heavy duty quad clamp. A strong clamp is essential on stunt scooters  to ensure a strong link between the deck, fork and handlebar.
It features a one piece alloy T4 & T6 Heat treated bar to lessen the pressure from the scooter when doing tricks.Weight limit - is 90kg so older children and even adults could have a go.

Handelbars - The height of the handlebars from the floor to the top of the handlebars is around 79cm / 31inches, so this should give you an idea of how high the handlebars will come up on your child. Ideally they should be around waist height. Although it's not an exact science. Some kids prefer them slightly lower and others slightly higher. However, too low and kids will be hunched over and too high makes the scooter difficult to control.

The manufacturer's recommended age is 6 plus so it should be fine for most 7 or 8 year olds. This scooter is also a good choice for cruising along the pavements to school or the park too. But of course it doesn't fold so won't be so easy to carry.
