What is a hoverboard?

Hoverboards, also known as self-balancing scooters, are boards that run along on two wheels powered by a motor.  Not quite the same as the levitating boards you see in sci-fi movies, a hoverboard for kids has a gyroscope and a motor inside. Simply put, the gyroscope detects which way the rider is leaning, and the motor moves the board accordingly. For more information, check out our blog on how do kids' hoverboards work.

Who can use a kids hoverboard?

Both kids and adults can use hoverboards. However, the minimum recommended age for kids to use hoverboards safely is 8 years old.  Younger children are generally too light for the board to work properly, so be sure to check the minimum as well as the maximum rider weight limit. If you're looking for the perfect ride on car for your little one, we've selected the best choices for each age:

Where can kids use a hoverboard?

Usually, you can either choose between a standard hoverboard or an off-road hoverboard.   Traditional hoverboards need smooth surfaces like driveways free from obstructions. Off-road hoverboards can be used on any terrain including grass and dirt - you might not get a smooth ride, though! It’s important to make sure hoverboards are only ever used on private land. Currently, you are unable to ride hoverboards in any public places including pavements or parks. 

Features of kids hoverboards

Safety certification

When buying a kids hoverboard, make sure you check for safety certification. UL 2272 tests check for issues such as overcharging, short-circuiting, temperature, charging, leakage, and more, to ensure the hoverboard is fit for purpose. If you choose to go for a budget hoverboard, make sure it meets these required safety standards.

LED lighting

Kids hoverboards often come with bright LED lights. This not only adds fun but also helps ensure they're more visible when riding. Many models even allow you to change the colour of the LED headlights with a smartphone!

Bluetooth functionality

The best hoverboards can connect to Bluetooth on your smartphone, allowing your little ones to play music as they ride. Kids are sure to be the envy of all their friends as they ride around in their garden playing their favourite songs, accompanied by flashing lights!

Speed limit

The best entry-level hoverboard should have a limited top speed to ensure it's safe for novice riders. Our models range from 12-16 km/hr, and one has an adjustable top speed, meaning new and advanced users alike can make the most of it.

Battery life

There's nothing worse than a battery running out when you need it most - which is why our hoverboards have powerful, rechargeable batteries.

FAQs about hoverboards for kids

Can a 7-year-old ride a hoverboard?

Most kids hoverboard models are not suitable for 7-year-olds. Most will be best suited to those aged 8 and above. If you're buying for younger kids, be sure to choose an entry-level hoverboard with a lower maximum speed and monitor them at all times.

What hoverboard should I get my kid?

A hoverboard that kids will love is the G2 Warrior Pro because it can handle any terrain, including steep inclines, and has all the bells and whistles that kids love - including LED lights and Bluetooth speakers!

What size hoverboard is best for kids?

All our products are perfect for kids - the Gyroor G11 is a great choice for younger children because it has smaller, 6.5-inch wheels.

Are hoverboards safe?

Hoverboard riding is perfectly safe for children as long as you choose a model with a limited cruising speed. Remember, your children should always wear safety gear such as knee pads when riding a hoverboard, too. You should always make sure you keep an eye on your child as they ride their hoverboard as well.  Whether buying for children or teenagers, ensure your chosen model meets the UL 2272 safety standards. Older kids must ensure they don't exceed the max weight capacity.
