Safety First: A Parent's Guide to Safe Scooting

Hey Parents! We know how much your kids love the thrill of zipping around on their Micro Kickboard scooters. But as always, safety comes first. That's why we've put together our most important safety tips to help your family develop safe scooting habits. So, grab your helmets and let's dive into some essential safety tips!

Helmet Happiness: Protect Those Noggins

Helmets aren't just accessories; they're super cool safety gear that can save the day - literally! When your child is riding on their Micro scooter, make sure they're rocking a properly fitting helmet. We love the Micro Helmet V2! Measure their head to get the right size, and remember: it should sit snugly, covering their forehead without tilting back. Decorate it with stickers or let them choose a design they love – the more they love it, the more likely they are to wear it without fuss. Take a photo of them to show how smart and cool they look!


Rules of the Road: Teach Traffic Smarts

Even though Micro Kickboard scooters are loads of fun, they're not race cars. Remind your kiddos that scooting safely means following some basic rules. Stop at intersections, dismount your scooter and look both ways before crossing a road, and stay on the sidewalk whenever possible. Play “stop & go” to get them familiar with stopping when you say. And hey, being a good role model by following the rules yourself doesn't hurt either!


Check It Out: Regular Scooter Inspections

Just like you'd give your car a check-up, take a few minutes to inspect your child's Micro scooter before they hit the pavement. Check the wheels for wear and tear – if they're looking worn, it might be time for replacements. We’ve got you covered when it comes to spare parts! Ensure the handlebars are securely attached and the grips are in good condition. Take it for a quick test ride every so often - it helps you spot any wobbles or strange noises before they become bigger issues.


Extra Visibility: Scooter Accessories

Our Micro Scooter Bells can help kiddos let people know they are scooting by keeping the sidewalks safe. Plus, you can choose from a wide range of colors and designs to coordinate with your ride! While we don’t recommend riding at night, the Micro Scooter Light is always a smart, safe idea to aid in low light and as a just-in-case option. Scooter Lights help kiddos to be visible while riding

Safe Scooter Riding for Kids

When it comes to your child's safety, a little extra caution goes a long way. While Micro scooters bring heaps of joy, it's important to make sure those joy rides are safe and sound. By making helmet wearing a habit, teaching traffic smarts, keeping an eye on the scooter's condition, and adding some fun accessories, you're setting your child up for scooting success.

With these safety tips in your back pocket, you'll be a pro at encouraging safe scooter adventures on Micro scooters. Happy scooting!
