Hoverboards might not be safe or legal in all places, but they’re definitely popular gifts, especially around Christmas, but controlling these Segway-like devices is no easy feat. We’ve seen plenty of fail videos on YouTube that show horrific hoverboard accidents, so we’re not surprised to see even more clips were uploaded on social networks immediately after Christmas. After all, many kids of all ages found hoverboards under the tree, and they obviously had to try them out as soon as possible

As you’ll see in the following clips, collected by SBNation and The Verge, controlling the self-balancing device is not something you can instantly master. While the clips are definitely hilarious, they’re also rather scary. These hoverboards could cause some serious injuries, so make sure you test them in a safe outdoor environment and that you wear protective gear at all times.

Check out some of the hoverboard videos below.

Merry Christmas everyone 👌🏻😂😂😂😂🎅🏻 #hoverboard #christmas
