I found an absolutely amazing gift idea that would work for a kid all the way up to an adult! Check out the new SWAGTRON K8 Titan Folding Kick Scooter!
Swagtron®, the affordable choice in innovative, quality electric rideables for riders of all ages, is announcing the launch of two new colors for the updated K8 kick scooter
that will give teen riders more swag options from which to choose. The K8 is available for purchase now on Swagtron.com
SWAGTRON knows that teens are looking for more ways to express their individuality from what they wear to what they ride, which is why we stay at the forefront of design and offer multiple color schemes with innovative features, and wallet-friendly pricing that speaks to the sidewalk warriors of today.
The K8 kick scooter
now comes in swag blue and pink, in addition to black. It rolls on 8-inch wheels paired with ABEC-9 precision bearings for a ride that is smooth and silent. The folding aluminum frame is ultra-durable, yet flexible enough to absorb the micro-turbulence of a standard ride on most pavement. An extra-wide deck with no-slip grip tape adds a subtle detail that highlights SWAGTRON’s swag lion icon.
Easily foldable in three quick steps, an upgraded locking mechanism makes sure it stays folded and locked. For those that have less space, remove the detachable handles and secure them in their clamp.

I checked out the black version of the scooter and we LOVE it. While this is bigger than other scooters we own, it is actually a lot more lightweight than them. Additionally, it folds up nicely so it can be stored when it is not in use. The handles fold to the side and the scooter itself folds down.
What's unique about this scooter is the kickstand. It's such a simple idea, yet it's nice to not have to toss it on the ground or find something to lean it up against in between using it! It even has a small bell attached! Even cooler is that the covering over the back wheel is actually a brake. So if you step on it, it will have the scooter come to a stop. It doesn't take much effort to press either. Because of it being lightweight and the handlebar is height-adjustable, anyone from my 6-year-old son to my husband can ride the scooter comfortably. There is gripping on the foot area which helps prevent you from slipping while riding it to make the ride a bit safer and more comfortable as well. Not to mention it's a pretty smooth ride!
When I got this scooter in, I literally had to tell everyone it was a shared item. They all wanted to fight over who got to ride it first and who it really belonged to. Yes, my husband is included in that! The scooter is very well made and well constructed. It is easy to maneuver and steer. Best of all, the scooter is not outrageously overpriced! It's actually affordable for the quality you get. Needless to say, this scooter is HIGHLY recommended by my whole family. My husband couldn't get enough of it and discovering how well it rides compared to our old heavy scooter.
