However, more recently we’ve been getting many customers asking similar questions. Parents with kids between the age of 7 and 10 are asking us which Hoverboards are suitable for their child.
Since our answers are always the same, we think it’d only be best if we wrote an article to help others with similar questions. In short, Hoverboards are universally suitable for ALL ages. However, it all depends on the following:
- Weight of the rider
- The sensitivity of the gyroscopic sensors
Hoverboards predominantly come in three types of sizes:
Each model has its own minimum weight requirement. Therefore, if you’re wondering which model is the best Hoverboard for your 8-year old child then you’d need to consider this.

Best Hoverboard For 8-year Old Child
As you can see in the video above, there are SOME exceptions to the rule! This baby rides a Hoverboard better than most of us. How is he doing this, you may ask?
Well, considering the minimum weight requirement, this shouldn’t be possible. However, thanks to our auto-levelling technology this can indeed happen! While the baby is able to hover around without activating the sensors due to his low weight, it can still balance.
Our auto-balance and auto-levelling technology mean that the gyroscopes become active from the moment you turn the Hoverboard on. Due to this, many riders who may not fit the minimum weight requirement can still partially enjoy it.
If you’re below the minimum weight requirement, however, not to worry! We still have the perfect solution for you.
Riders who weigh less than the requirements set for each model can still enjoy the Hoverboard with a Hoverkart Go-Kart attachment. Convert your Hoverboard into a Go-Kart and you’ll have the time of your life. Whip around the home or garden in this universally adaptable accessory.

Why does the Hoverkart work for anyone?
To put it simply, the Hoverkart sits on top of the Hoverboard. Meanwhile, the handlebars replace your feet which are controlled using the handlebars. So as you push the handles up or down, the footpads become compressed and the gyroscopes activate.
Due to this, anyone can ride a Hoverkart regardless of age or weight. It’s now easy to make someone’s birthday or Christmas the unforgettable one thanks to the Hoverboard and Go-Kart bundle for sale!
