How do you make a nine year old’s birthday the best ever? By getting her an electric scooter of course! My youngest daughter just turned 9 last week. She’s small for her age and has really been wanting to try out her older sister’s electric scooter for awhile now. To be honest, she was too scared to give it a try. It’s a bit big for her and goes pretty fast. The GoTrax GKS is much more her speed, literally. The GKS electric kids scooter is perfect for beginners and was designed for riders 5 foot tall or less.
It doesn’t come assembled but GoTrax kept it simple making it quick and easy to put together with just three pieces that need to be attached. It comes with the bolts and tools you need as well as a wall charger to power up the scooter.
I’m a procrastinator and waited until the morning of Parker’s birthday to assemble the scooter. I had a million things to do that day so I was thrilled at how easily and quickly I was able to assemble the scooter. No complicated directions or difficulty assembling at all!
Parker couldn’t wait to take it for a quick spin even though we had to head to soccer practice on her birthday. It only took her a couple of minutes to figure out how it works. You have to kick to start it with one foot on the front button, then when you’re ready to roll with the electric motor, place your foot on the back button. To brake, just put the heel of your back foot down on the wheel cover while taking your foot off the back button.
The 150 Watt motor and 25.2V Battery powers this super fun scooter on cement or paved roads for up to 4 miles per charge The solid 6″ rubber tires absorb vibrations for a smooth ride. For safety, the scooter is locked at a safe but fun 7.5 mph. Since both feet must be placed on the scooter before the motor will engage, it gives your child time to position themselves before it kicks into gear. Weighing in at just 17.8 pounds, this scooter is easier to carry and maneuver that many other scooters. I highly recommend it for any beginner or small riders!
Parker has riden her scooter every day since she got it. She’s spent less time on screens because of it and it’s something she really enjoys doing with her sister which means less fighting and more fun!
