Hauck Lightning Pedal Go-Kart
The first go kart we are looking at is the Hauck Lightning Pedal Go-Kart which is a really cool looking go kart. This super fast go kart is for children aged 4 – 8. The reason that it has such a wide age range is that it has an adjustable seat so as the child grows, you just move the seat back and they can keep on racing.
This go kart has three point steering which gives your child more control over the go kart which can come in handy if they are driving fast on the driveway near your car!
A nice little bonus if this go kart is the 8 ball style hand brake. This not only works as a regular brake, but lets them do some cool skids. At 150 bucks this is a very well made go kart that will provide years of fun.
Razor Ground Force Electric Go-Kart
Now, before you freak out over the price tag let us tell you why the Razor Ground Force Electric Go-Kart is one of the best go karts for kids on the market right now. This thing first of all looks really cool. It is made for older children so it is recommended for kids aged 8 and up.
You may notice a lack of pedals. This is not because it was left unattended in a bad part of town. But because it is an electric go kart! That is right, your child can put the pedal to the metal and take part in a high speed chase…. Well a 12 mph chase, but you get the idea. This is a good speed as it will feel fast for the child, but it is not so fast that they will easily lose control.
If you want something a bit more extravagant then this is well worth thinking about.
Berg Toys Junior Buddy
The Berg Toys Junior Buddy is one of the more expensive pedal go karts out there, but it is also one of the best. This has big chunky wheels so it is great for off road racing. It also has a reverse gear which is cool. The breaks are state of the art so you do not have any worries about them crashing through the garage door.
What makes this such a great go kart though is not just the awesome orange design. It is the fact this is made with a high quality powder coated tubular steel frame. This makes the go kart very robust so if they do take it off road it will handle it with ease.
This is for kids aged 3-8 so they will get many years of use out of it.
Razor Force Drifter Kart
With its blue, black and flame design the Razor Force Drifter Kart really is one smart looking go kart. What makes this one of the best go karts for kids is the design. It’s made to go fast and can reach speeds of up to 12 mph.
This is an electric go kart, however it can do a lot more than just going forward, backwards and turning. Your child can do some pretty epic skids thanks to the brakes they have used.
The Razor Force Drifter is very easy to drive and while it is aimed at kids aged 8 and over (it has been reported even teenagers have been able to use this) even younger siblings would be able to have a go as it is so easy to drive.
The asking price may seem a little steep, but this is one top of the line go kart.
Hauck Highlander Pedal Go Kart
The Hauck Highlander Pedal Go Kart is a classic looking, pedal powered go kart that has a very 80’s kind of style to it. We really like the black and red design and think that those 12 inch rims are just fantastic.
Speaking of which these large wheels will make it so the go kart can drive on any kind of terrain. It has an adjustable bucket seat so as the child grows you can raise it and they can keep on using the go kart. The steering wheel they have used is ideal as it allows for quick and precise movements which means if they want to race around the garden they will feel like a real rally driver!
The age range for this go kart is 4 -8, but if your child is not all that tall, you can probably squeeze a few more years out of this.
Power Wheels SpongeBob Go Kart
Who drives in a go kart under the sea? SpongeBob of course and we are sure he does it in style in this Power Wheels SpongeBob Go Kart. This thing is just adorable and it is actually like they are riding in SpongeBob.
The Power Wheels Spongebob go kart is made for toddlers and the recommended age range is 1 to 3 years. This is an electric powered go kart, but do not worry as the top speed is only 2 mph.
The go kart is very easy to drive and just has a simple stop and go button. It can drive on flat surfaces as well as grass so no matter what kind of harden you have it will be fine. This is actually one of the best go karts for toddlers.
Razor Dune Buggy
The Razor Dune Buggy may make your bank balance cry as it is over $400, but this really is one of the best go karts for kids. This is high end all the way. It is made with a very strong steel frame and features a nice and comfy padded seat.
The electric motor allows it to go at speeds of up to 10 mph and the racing style steering wheel has a throttle on it so there is no pedals like you get on a regular go kart.
This is aimed at children who are aged 8 and over and we are sure that they will have a lot of fun with this. You get around 45 minutes’ drive time of a charge which is actually very impressive.
We know the price is high, but if your child is really into their cars and vehicles then they will love this!
Razor Power Rider 360 Electric Tricycle
Now this is one cool go kart! OK, so the Razor Power Rider 360 Electric Tricycle is not technically a go kart it is a tricycle, but it is still really cool and worthy of a place on this list.
The Razor Power Rider is made from high end materials so it is a very robust vehicle. It’s also very easy to drive and features a push button that will let it go up to 9 mph.
One of the very best features about this though is the way it handles. This is actually designed to not just go fast. It is designed to do full 360 degree skids. Once they get the hang of it they can even drift as if they were in The Fast And The Furious! There is not a kid on the planet who would not find this extremely cool!
The Razor Power Rider is a bit of an extreme kind of ride so it is only recommended for children who are aged 8 and up.
Hauck Nerf Battle Racer – Best Go Karts For Kids
Look, sometimes when you are a kid a go kart is not enough and you need something that can get you from a to b and also take down some zombies, international terrorists or just your little sister if she is being annoying. That is what the Hauck Nerf Battle Racer is all about.
This is a pedal powered go kart that looks more like a tank as it has so much protection on it. It is nice and easy to drive, has large wheels so it can handle plenty of terrain and best of all it has sections where you can clip on a Nerf gun and a ton of ammo!
This is just flat out awesome. Your child can drive and shoot and have a great time as they do so. This actually is a very good go kart as it’s something your child can get many years out of as it’s for ages 4 to 10.
If your child is into Nerf then the Hauck Nerf Battle Racer has to make your shortlist.
Razor Ground Force Drifter Fury Ride On
The last go kart we are looking at is the Razor Ground Force Drifter Fury Ride On. Razor make some fantastic electric go karts and this one is one of their best. It can reach speeds of up to 12 mph which is really impressive.
What’s even more awesome is the included spark bar which will let them make spectacular sparks like a Fury as they drive. There’s not a kid who wouldn’t find that an extremely cool feature.
There is no pedals on this go kart and all the controls are on the steering wheel. While this is designed to go really fast, it has special wheels on the back that will let them skid and drift around corners which they will have a lot of fun doing.
This really has to be one of the best go karts for kids, but as it goes so fast it is recommended for children aged 8 and up.
