Things to Consider Before Buying a Kids’ Ride-On Go-Kart, Scooter, or Dirt Bike

It’s a well-known fact that kids love their toys. It’s also an accepted truth that today’s children spend far too much time inside in front of the TV or playing video games. Why not give some thought to gifts that will encourage them to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors?

A dirt bike, electric scooter, or go-kart could be just the solution. Even adults love toys like those, so what child wouldn’t love to get started early? It’s important, however, to check out safety features and product specifications prior to buying. Some ride-on products are designed specifically for a certain age or weight group, and can only be safely used if the child falls within those parameters.

Other things to consider prior to buying include whether it makes more sense to go electric, or buy a ride-on that comes with a gas engine. It should be noted that most parents opt for electric, with good reason. Electric scooters, bikes, and other ride-ons aren’t nearly as loud as their gas-guzzling counterparts. They can still reach maximum speeds that balance safety with fun, and can usually be charged overnight for a full ride-on experience the next day. Additionally, since there are no fumes, gas ride-ons pose less of a danger to children’s health while they are riding.

Be sure to look for appropriate safety features, such as rugged design and simple speed control and brakes. It’s also important to ensure that children are only using their ride-on bikes, go-karts, scooters, or atv’s in safe environments. These are not designed to be street-legal, or even street-safe, and their use must be confined to private property where cars are not going to get in the way or pose a safety hazard. Some towns have dedicated go-kart tracks, which can be a perfect solution for finding a space that is both safe and fun to ride in.

It’s a good idea to read up on any individual product prior to purchase to ensure that it meets both the children’s and the parents’ needs. Most parents find that the small amount of concern they may have over their kids learning how to ride is greatly outweighed by the kids’ enthusiasm and enjoyment. Visit to view products, check out reviews, and choose the right scooter, caster, go-kart, or dirt bike to make any child’s day.
