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.
