If you have seen the waveboards, then you know that it is a lot more accessible than, for example, skateboarding.

The speeds are much lower which makes it an ideal toy for younger children.

There are a number of waveboard brands that are for more professionals, but also a lot that are super easy to learn.

You will be surprised how quickly children can learn to ride one.

From what age is a waveboard suitable?

I myself would say from 5 years, although even younger children ride one. For example, this kid is 4 years old:

Very young children can already start to learn on a wave board, especially if one is already at home from an older brother or sister (or your own).

It's a matter of getting in and out, and because the speed is so low, not much can go wrong.

As long as you pay attention to where they drive.

Preferably in the garden where you have a view of them and where they cannot get under a car because they accidentally roll over. And preferably on softer tiles.

You move forward by swinging back and forth a bit so it is quite fun for young children to see how they use their whole body.

If there is a board that you want to give your young child, then the wave board may be the most suitable.

I recommend starting no earlier than from the age of 5.
