Go Outside and Play! Bloggers #RideRazor – May Round Up
Screen time is a serious issue and it becomes an even bigger deal in summer, when many kids are home from school and looking for something to do. Like the shot heard ‘round the world, from June to August parents everywhere can be heard telling their kids to “go outside and play!”
Many parents, including top parenting and family bloggers, are finding that Razor’s awesome rides are a great way to get their kids to put down their tablets and phones. Breathing the fresh air, exploring nature, getting some exercise, and enjoying family together time are just a few of the reasons our fans and their families love riding with Razor. Let the parenting and family experts help you choose your kids’ summer rides, with the reviews below!
Expert Picks for Lil’ Ones
Katie @ParentDaze just graduated from her Folding Kiddie Kick Scooter to the A3 Scooter. Katie’s mom says, “She loves scooting because she can get out and be active while also learning and improving a skill. We love that Razor scooters are small, portable, and foldable (because we live in the city and space is at a premium!) And if she scoots somewhere, it’s easy to fold it up and put in the stroller while we play at the park, or carry it around a store while we shop.”
ABorderLineMom.com agrees. She packs her family’s scooters up, including a new T3 for her littlest rider, and heads to the schoolyard or park whenever possible, saying, “With technology becoming such a huge part of life for kids, where it is becoming harder to pry their noses away from a screen, I definitely appreciate anything that will keep my kids entertained outdoors! Scooters never go out of style and are a great way to safely enjoy the wind in your face and the sun on your back.”
And when little ones are ready to rev things up, it’s time for the Razor Jr. Lil’ E electric scooter! Designed for kids ages 3 years and up, this scooter boasts a battery life of up to 60 minutes and maxes out at 2 MPH, a speed that the experts at MommasLittleReviews.com found to be perfect! Momma says, “It went fast enough for her to have fun, but was still slow enough not to cause too much damage if she fell. The button to power the scooter forward is located conveniently on the handlebar, which allowed my daughter to catch on extremely quickly. She was able to go and stop as she pleased, while the stability of three wheels prevented her from having any major wipeouts!”
Expert Picks for Bigger Kids (and Kids at Heart!)
The fit Mom at TrendyMomReviews encourages her son to get up early and take his kick scooter for a spin while she goes on her daily run. She says this routine is “…part of our daily schedule and we are used to going outside to spend time together. We recently switched things up and got a Razor A5 Air Scooter for my son. He absolutely loves it! It’s a win-win that it’s fun to use and helps him to stay active and fit.”
Ameenha Lee, of Ameenhalee.com agrees. The fashion, beauty, and lifestyle guru says, “This scooter promotes exercise for everyone while having fun. I love to take my Razor A5 Prime Scooter with me everywhere. Bringing the Razor A5 Prime Scooter with you to the store or to a friend’s house can be way more fun than walking. The A5 Prime Scooter is a perfect for parents who want their kids to spend more time outdoors. It is perfect to take your A5 Prime Scooter outside oppose to being stuck inside on the phone.”
If it’s serious adventure you’re after this summer, the experts at ImaginationWard.com recommend the Razor Dune Buggy. The site touts the 350 watt electric motor, speeds of up to 10 MPH, 8 inch pneumatic tires perfect for difficult terrain, and noiseless, rechargeable battery system as some of the reasons why they awarded the Buggy the top honor for Electric Go Karts in their “6 Best for 2018” list.
Instagram sensation That’s Betsy V shared a snap of her new fave Razor ride, the RazorX Cruiser Cruiser Electric Skateboard! New to skating, Betsy says, “I have a slight obsession with #skateboarding… but I never rode one… Now all I keep thinking about is whipping it out every time I have to go outside…” A classic skateboard with an electrifying kick, the RazorX reaches speeds of up to 10 MPH thanks to a 125-watt, geared motor and lithium-ion battery. Featuring Razor’s patented carve and turn action, the RazorX Cruiser is a high-performance, high-quality skateboard powered by an electric rear-wheel motor and controlled by a hand-held remote. The engine ramps up and slows down gradually, and easily shifts into manual mode when you’re out of battery juice. Perfect for cool summer cruising!

Self-proclaimed helicopter mom Crystal Carder of CystalCarder.com let go long enough for her son to give the Ripstik a try and she’s ever so glad she did. Once he got the hang of it from the safety of his porch railings, Crystal’s son couldn’t get enough of riding his Ripstik! Says Crystal, “We love everything about Razor’s RipStik – especially how well it is made, and recommend them for kids everywhere this summer!” We couldn’t agree more! The RipStik’s 360-degree, inclined casters and pivoting deck move the rider forward with a unique twisting motion – like surfing or snowboarding on dry land!
