This electric scooter is pricey, but it's pretty rad. The Razer Power A2 has an electric motor that kicks in once you start scooting -- kids can get up to 10 mph on this bad boy. And with a weight limit of 143 pounds, (lighter) parents can take it for a spin too. The lightweight scooter can fold up for easy transport and acceleration happens with the push of a button; the throttle control is right there on the (adjustable) handle bar. Charge it up and your tween can use the motor for up to 40 minutes before it needs a recharge. This is one seriously fun gift.
