Stunt Scooters for 5, 6 and 7 Year Olds



There are more and more stunt scooters appearing on the market for younger children aged 5, 6 and 7.  However, it is important to note that although many scooters are labelled stunt scooters, they are quite often not designed to be strong enough to take repeated abuse at the skate park. Some "stunt" scooters may be fine for occasional stunt use, but for repeated use at the skate park it is important to choose a strong, durable scooter that can withstand the force from impact and jumps.

Stunt scooters tend to be more expensive than kick scooters as they have reinforced and more durable parts to withstand the abuse from the stunts but materials have to be light as well.  However, kids aged 5, 6 and 7 are lighter and smaller so the impact they make on the scooter with the jumps and tricks isn't as harsh as older, heavier kids and teens. Therefore,  stunt scooters for this age group are generally less expensive than for stunt scooters for aged 8 plus.

The a few 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.

5.) PU wheels with alloy cores and fast spinning bearings are the best. Some scooters for younger kids do have nylon or plastic cores and these should withstand the impact required for this age group but alloy or metal cores are the superior quality.

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