Used Gas Scooters for Kids

Used gas scooters for kids can be great fun and a good way to help teach children responsibility. What kid wouldn’t love having a scooter to ride? Most kids would love having a scooter to ride to school or just around the neighborhood. Having a scooter to ride would get children moving rather than sitting around playing video games all day. I’m not saying riding a scooter is great exercise but it could be a way to get a child outdoors and moving around. If your child wants a scooter but you’re not sure he/she is ready for it, you should consider getting a used gas scooter as a starter. If your child uses the scooter and takes care it, you can decide if you want to buy a new scooter later.

Local Searches

I would start my search for a used scooter at local scooter stores. Ask if they have any trade-ins or street legal scooters that where returned that you could look at. Ask if they have a scooter that was slightly damaged in shipping that they don’t have on the sales floor. Even though technically that’s a new scooter, you may be able to get it at a good price.


The classifieds of local papers would be another good place to look for a used gas scooter for kids. The Iwanna newspaper, sold in certain parts of the country has sections devoted to just about anything that’s bought and sold, including street legal scooters. If you find a scooter that you think you’re interested in you can use contact information in the add to contact sellers. There’s also a free on-line version of Iwanna that you can search. I searched Iwanna for scooters within a 30 mile radius of where I live and here are a few things that showed up.

Used Gas Scooters for Kids on eBay

eBay is another great place to look for a used scooter. eBay is probably the worlds largest on-line auction site. Sellers get rated on their products and service and you get an option to bid on an item or to buy at a set price. Most products on eBay have pictures and detailed descriptions of the product. eBay normally has a wide variety of whatever it is you’re looking for.

Responsibility for a Scooter

Buying a used street legal gas scooter for your kid could be a great way to help him/her learn responsibility. You could make him/her responsible for coming up with their own gas money. They may also gain a few mechanical and electrical skills by doing some of their own maintenance on the scooter. They would have to keep everything (lights, brakes) in working order so that they can ride safely. Doing those kind of things will give a child some self-confidence and help prepare thing for bigger things. If this works out, it could lead to getting a better scooter.
