Don't even think about it, it's TOO dangerous! These types of batteries contain acid, and are unsealed. We all know kids and acid don't mix well. There is also the possibility of an explosion with unsealed acid batteries. Hydrogen gas can form above the battery and can be ignited by a spark (say by connecting a wire to the battery terminal). These batteries should never be used for kids ride on toys, there's just too much risk of injury.

Lawnmower/motorcycle batteries are intended to be used at high amperage rates for very short times, not discharged and recharged constantly. The SLA batteries you get from Gruber are made for this type of application, are just as cheap, much safer, and should give much better life/performance than lawnmower batteries.
