Are electric scooters safe for kids?

My 5yo wants an electric scooter for Christmas but I don't know anyone who has one so I don't know if it's age appropriate. Of course there's going to be a helmet and everything, but still, I have no idea!

Thank you!

  • I dont like those things so much. Drivers have a hard enough time seeing motorcycles. 5 is kind of young for a motorized peice of equipment.

  • I dont think its safe for that young of age. When I was 15 I had one and going down a hill fell and got hurt pretty bad.
