If you’ve been around for any length of time, you know how much we love Micro Kickboard USA’s scooters. All of them. Every other scooter you will encounter is GARBAGE compared to the Mini and Maxi Kick Scooter.
These scooters are more expensive than the typical scooter for little and school-aged kids, but I am telling you that it’s worth the extra cost. Even at full price. And these things last forever, so you will pass it down to younger kids or give it away and everyone will love you.
(And may I make a suggestion? Purchase a neutral color so you can pass it along or sell it to anyone.)
The wording on these scooters is confusing, mostly because they are using a bunch of similarly sounding “M” words to describe three different scooters. I’ve done my best to show you exactly which scooter you should purchase for your child.
Micro Kickboard Mini Scooter — (regular price $79.99)
This is perfect for kids 2-5 years old. It’s the basic scooter for preschoolers. My toddler (under 2) figured this out just fine and my bigger kids could ride it past 5. Unless your preschooler is really, really tall and close to 5, this is the scooter you should get.
PRICE TO WATCH — Anything $60 or less is worth it!
Micro Mini Deluxe Kick Scooter — (regular price $89.99)
This is the same size as the Mini scooter above, but it has an adjustable bar so it will work well for tall-for-their-age kids. It will also let a 6 or 7 year old ride it.
PRICE TO WATCH — Anything $70 or less is worth it!
Micro Maxi Deluxe Kick Scooter — (regular price $139.99)
This is the scooter for older kids (5+ years). It has a larger base and an adjustable bar.
PRICE TO WATCH — Anything less than $115 is worth it!
Micro Maxi Original Kick Scooter — (regular price $129.99)
I can’t tell a huge difference between the Original and the Deluxe, just looks like some design upgrades on the Deluxe. They both get great reviews and both have the adjustable handle height to grow with your kid.
If you still think I’m crazy telling you to buy a scooter that isn’t a $15 Razor, check out my review here.
From my blog manager Melody — “My kids rode these until they should have fallen apart (but they never do). They are fast enough, super safe, fun, easy to learn, sturdy, you name it. My oldest turned 11 last year and we finally caved to buy them Razor scooters (which they love because they can go faster), but I’m certain they’re going to break their necks and the wheels will fall off all at the same time. BUY THESE NOW.”
