The phrase "practice makes perfect" needs to be applied this Christmas to anyone who found a hoverboard under the tree.

The electric scooters are among the most popular present given this year, but the joy was shortlived for some gift-getters this year as their new toy led swiftly to a fall to the floor.

Here are some videos of hoverboard falls that have been making the rounds on social media – which hopefully had a less serious result than those described in the tweets above. (Warning: Some feature swearing).

Merry Christmas everyone #hoverboard #christmas

MLB star Dan Uggla had perhaps the most high-profile fall, taking this spill while at the park as he listened to Justin Bieber.
