Cute! (And this reply should make it easier to see).

At one point early on, she clearly demonstrates why there's a lower weight recommendation, as she has to bring her weight back to the max to control speed going downslope.

Which is why my 9-year-old daughter only gets to use the Segway in limited circumstances as well until she grows a bit more. (Eventually, maturity will be the issue rather than physics!)

I've had a really tiny kid, about 3 years old, on my Segway, with even more limitations (including being able to grab the Segway in milliseconds, and her dad prepared to grab her equally quickly).

It's such a delight watching their reactions!

(And safer than the process of learning to ride a bike! Do you know ANY kid who's not been injured at least once in learning to ride a bike?)

Obviously, we can't have infinite voltage, or the universe would tear itself to shreds, and we wouldn't be discussing Segways.
