As we strive to give our children toys that enrich their lives and keep them happy and entertained, we sometimes struggle with choosing a toy that they aren’t going to get tired of within a months’ time.
This is where new Razor riding toys come into play. These toys can provide your children with hours of entertainment for several years. Well, we can only hope, right?
In this guide, we are going to talk about some of the features you’ll want to look for when trying to decide between Razor riding toys. For example, if you’re looking at Razor scooters, do you want to get the traditional kick scooter, a pro scooter, or the latest Razor electric scooters for kids? There’s a lot to consider, and we’re here to help!
Razor Scooters, Pro Scooter Or Electric Scooter
The Razor brand is most known for their brand of scooters. The company makes smaller scooters that are ideal for children, but they also make models that are geared toward teens and adults.
These are your traditional scooters that make you use your leg to kick the scooter into motion. These are a fan favorite because they are simple to use, simple to carry, and easy to store. These are great for children and young people who are new to using a scooter.
The next step up in the Razor Scooter line are the pro scooters. These scooters are designed to be used at a skate park or even in a scooter competition. Some folks can get confused between the pro scooter and the regular ones because they look very much alike.
However, the real difference between the two is that the Pro version uses performance-grade materials, they have a higher weight capacity, have larger foot decks, and have larger wheels made from urethane.
The line of electric scooters uses a battery to commute short distances. The scooters at the top of the line can go up to 15 mph and last at least 40 minutes of continual usage on a single charge. If the power dies out before you’re able to recharge it, you can then use the scooter as a kick scooter.
Can I Find Razor Electric Scooters For Kids
You most certainly can. These scooters feature three wheels to help your child keep their balance while they are learning how to use the push-to-go, soft start throttle. The Lil E’, as Razor calls it, can go up to 2 mph, so it allows them to move but it isn’t going to be an uncontrollable speed. There is even a seated scooter option that has a vintage style that is quite charming.
What Other Kid Friendly Toys Does Razor Make
Other than scooters, you can find cool toys in the Razor Jr. line. Here, you’ll find things like Razor cars for kids and a buggy that’s called “Twisti.”
Razor Cars For Kids
The Crazy Cart is a wildly popular toy that Razor makes for older kids and teens, so not to leave the Lil’ tikes out of the fun, Razor created the Lil’ Crazy. This electric cart was redesigned for smaller riders and features controls that are easier for smaller kids to use.
The car has a max speed of 2 mph, so you don’t have to worry about your child getting away from you if you’re going for a walk down the street. Much like a real car, your child pushes on a foot pedal to propel the car forward, and they control where they go with the steering wheel. For their first ride on toy, this is a pretty cool option.
If your little one has a bunch of energy, you can wear them out really quickly with this seated scooter. All your child has to do is take a seat and put their feet up on the handlebars which they move from side to side to move across the floor. The Twist promotes gross motor skill development and is great for children as young as 18 months old!
What Type Of Razor Riding Toys Are Available For Big Kids
We talked about what kind of toys Razor makes for smaller kids, but about riding toys for bigger kids? They’re in luck because you can find a Razor electric motorcycle and a quad. Both have the ability to reach up to 15 mph, which is impressive considering it is just a toy. The amount of riding time you can get from each depends on the weight of the rider and the type of terrain that they are riding on, but generally, they can get up to at least 40 minutes of continual usage.
The type of riding toy that you choose for your child should be the source of any headaches. When you know what you’re looking for and you factor in your child’s age and their interests, then you can have a better idea of what would be good for them. We feel that it’s always a good idea to bring your child into the decision-making process, they are going to be the ones playing with the toy after all.
We feel that it is also important that when you make your decision, you be mindful of any safety gear that you may need. Although you may not need safety gear for something like the Twisti, you do want to have a helmet and riding gear for your kids if you purchase an electric motorcycle or four wheeler.
The look on your child’s face when you present them with their very own Razor riding toy, regardless of what you actually decide to purchase, is worth the headache of trying to decide on which toy is the best buy. We’re sure you’ll agree too when they show you how appreciative they are for the amazing gift!
