Today, on Redhead Mom, I am sharing about the GKS Electric Scooter for Kids.
It is a great product and my youngest son loved using it! All opinions expressed are 100% mine.

GKS Electric Scooter for Kids

With everything that’s going on in the world right now, our kids are spending a lot of time inside the house. It’s great to know that there is a product that can get them excited about going outdoors again! Thanks to GOTRAX, we had the opportunity to check out the GKS Electric Scooter for kids by GOTRAX. Don’t worry if this wasn’t the style you were looking for, there are plenty of other motor scooters for sale.

Our youngest had actually seen a video on social media about it and was saying he wanted to check one out sometime. I hadn’t yet told him about the GOTRAX GKS Electric Scooter that arrived, but when I did, he was stoked and wanted to open it up right away! While we did have to wait until the next day to open it (it was nighttime at that point), it was well worth the wait!

The GKS Electric Scooter for Kids features 6″ Solid rubber tires that absorb vibrations, making it glide effortlessly on cement or paved roads. The speed of the GKS kids scooter is locked at a safe but fun 7.5mph. The Compact 25v Battery and 150 Watt electric motor powers the GKS for up to 4 miles per charge. Now the whole family can have fun, and remember to always wear aΒ helmet.

My husband and my son both worked together to set the electric scooter up. The instructions included with the scooter made it VERY easy to put together! Our son was excited to help build something he was excited to use! Once it was put together and charged, my son was eager to take it for a ride…and he LOVED it!!!


New Safety Start Technology

Both feet must be placed on the scooter before the motor will engage, giving your child time to position themselves before the motor kicks in.

6″ Wheels

The durable 6″ wheels are large enough to create a smooth ride on sidewalks and paved areas.

Lightweight Frame

This electric scooter for kids only weighs 17.8 lbs, making it super easy to carry and maneuver.

5 Unique Color Combinations

The GKS features a fun two-tone color scheme, making it one of the most unique looking kid’s scooters available!

Designed for Kids

The GKS weighs only 17.8 lbs, making it one of the lightest electric scooters available. With a comfortable max speed of 7.5 mph and a range of 4 miles per charge, the GKS is the perfect beginners scooter!

Smart Start Technology

The GKS is built with a safety start technology to make it safer for beginner riders.

1 – First you must place your foot on the front button and kick to start.

2 – Once you have the scooter moving, then place your second foot on the back button to engage the electric motor to accelerate.

The motor completely shuts off once you remove your back foot from the button. That way the rider is always ready and in position before the motor starts. It’s perfect for going for an adventure on their way to some outdoor climbing toys.
