Is it Safe for Children?
Our typical customer has a wanting child aged between 9 and 13. Our recommendation for children is the basic 6.5 Inch model without the frills of Bluetooth. Like skiing or skateboarding, using a swegway / hoverboard can be very dangerous if your child is not supervised properly. Children love them, but they must be accompanied to ensure safety, and parents must follow the law. (see our law page)
They are not for use on a public road or even a public place like a park, so be careful not only how your children use them, but where your children use them.
Children should always west a helmet, long trousers, knee pads and gloves. Treat Swegways like skis but using them on a hard surface.
