I had been searching for a scooter for some time now that was high-quality and easy enough for my 2.5 year old and 4 year old to “get the hang of”. So, this week I am proud to review Micro Kickboards!
My toddlers are both using the Mini Micro. It is a high-quality, 3-wheel scooter with an award-winning Swiss design. The target age range for this model is ages 3-5 and it is not hard to see why this was such a hit with my kids.
The scooter has a low-to-the-ground deck and a gentle lean-and-steer handle bar. I love the fact that my kids don’t have to turn and twist left or right. They simply lean into the handle bar and it guides itself in either direction. This kick board is very stable, unlike others I had been looking at. The fact that my kids can simply use their own body weight to curve left or right allowed me to see them naturally work on their balance, coordination, and gross motor skills. The deck of the Mini is large enough for their two little feet and my daughter (the 4 year old) immediately got the hang of switching from pushing with one foot to gliding. I didn’t even instruct her and she was already doing it! The mini weighs in at a mere 3.3 pounds, so I definitely plan to bring it with us this summer and let them sidewalk surf down the boardwalk at the beach or up and down the hallways in our hotel.
I hope you try one out this summer for your child/children- you won’t be disappointed!
