Buying the latest toys and gear for the kids can break even the best-planned budget, but it doesn’t have to. We’re going to run down how to buy an electric scooter for kids on a tight budget, including money-saving tips and how to get the best bang for your buck.

1 – Talk To Your Kids About Priorities

Before starting to save for the electric scooter your child is asking for, consider talking with them about priorities. For example, try asking them about whether they’d rather the family go for a fun trip out on the weekend, or to their favorite restaurant, instead of buying the e-scooter.

By explaining the different options they could get for that amount of money, you can more easily explain the need to save money for an electric scooter. If they are then willing to make the trade, you can save the money from the trip for the scooter.

2 – Stop Buying Toys And Save Money

Like the above, you can also trade the budget from other toys to save money for an electric scooter. You might also save money on the games they spend money on online. It doesn’t have to add up to

 the exact cost of the scooter, but gives you a chance to discuss with your young one how saving money on certain toys or games can be used to purchase a bigger item like an e-scooter instead.

3 – Avoid Cheap Options

One of the worst ways to save money in this situation is to simply go for the cheapest option of e-scooter. These are dangerous, high-powered, motorized devices. Putting your child on an ill-fitting, prone-to-breaking electric scooter is just not worth the risk.

There are budget models that are good, but just make sure the brand and model have some reputation behind them and that you are saving money on the bells and whistles, not the main parts.
