Gas Powered Scooters Are Fun


We've come far along enough as a society that gas powered toys are no longer a luxury item only for the rich.. Whether you're going seeing a friend or simply having fun driving around, a power scooter can be the best choice. It's maneuverable, comfortable and efficient for getting around.

You might be tempted to purchase a push scooter, but if you're searching for performance, speed and space, we would suggest that you pick gas instead. A gas-powered scooter will work better if you're planning on going on an adventure on rough terrain.

When speaking about petrol-powered skateboards, there's really only one name to choose-- Wheelman. Why?

Durability -- they can be ridden by you on all terrain -  roads, sandy beaches and grass.  Try that on a normal board!

Speed -- Top speeds of 26 miles/hour will be get you where you want to go fast!

Engine Position -- A center-mounted engine keeps the center of gravity low for great control.

Clever Wheel Design -- on this skateboard your feet are in the wheels - you use them  along with your body, to maneuver.


Looking for general scooter advice? Here's a great best scooters for kids review to tide you over while we work on our research!

Summer is here- have fun with pocket bikes and gas karts


A pocket bike is a serious toy machine, intended for use by  kids 13 years old and older. But parents, if you're looking to buy this bike for your adolescent, it's essential you buy them a suitable helmet (safety first!) And remember the leather biker jacket for scrape protection is cool-looking!

A gasoline-powered kart is even more closely-aligned towards a real, adult vehicle.  You have a decent-sized motor, 4 wheels and a gas tank all with one mission - fun!

Because they are bigger and faster, they are built to hold up to more abuse.  The majority of them come with front and rear bumpers and seat clearance. (We mean, you should not try to hit obstacles but your cart can probably manage if you accidentally clip one).

These carts can run for approximately 20 miles with one tank while topping out at speeds above 30 mph.  I have the need, the need for speed!
