The Micro Mini Kickboard is the highest rated scooter for children aged 2-5. Your child will love "surfing the sidewalk" on their Micro Mini, and you will love the years of fun and exercise it provides. The Mini is one of the best value present you will buy your child. The smooth gliding Micro Mini's 3 wheels, low-to-the-ground deck and safe steering all contribute to stability that makes the Mini perfect for pre-schoolers and kindergartners. What makes the Mini unique and fun is the lean-to-steer design; children steer by using their body weight to lean right and left, intuitively learning to lean into a turn, while developing balance and coordination used in many sports. The Micro Mini has the smoothest, quietest ride available thanks to high quality wheels and a flexible fiberglass reinforced deck, which together absorb bumps in the sidewalk. Safety certified by the CPSC, the Micro Mini is recommended for children up to 44lbs. SAFETY - For best protection, we strongly recommend that children wear helmets and knee pads when riding. Non marking wheels allow children to learn to scoot in the safety of your home.

The Mini also was named 'Best Pre-School Scooter' by Toy Report, 'Best Outdoor Toy' by Learning Express Stores and was featured on the NBC Today Show as part of its 'Best Toys for Summer' series. What makes the Mini unique and fun is its quality construction and 'lean-to-steer' design, which allows children to use their body weight to control the steering, giving them the feeling of 'surfing' the sidewalk, as they gently curve from right to left.

The rear brake adds to the safety and fun. The Mini can be ridden inside while learning (or waiting for Spring) as the quality wheels

Our neighbor's got this scooters for their girls (2 and 4).... and our daughter not just loved it - but easily rode it!
The steering is by leaning - so it took a couple times for the girls to figure out to use their weight and lean into the direction they wanted to go.
But the wheels are super smooth and roll over most surfaces; the girls ride scooters to and from each house in the yard.
Most importantly - the brake! The brake is activated by stepping on the stopper and applying pressure to back wheel. Stopping is simple and SMOOTH - the girls dont fall off or fall over the handlebars - even when trying to stop fast.
It is lightweight and the colors are vibrant... we have the aqua, the neighbors have pink and purple.
It was a night-day difference - the girls ride the scooters daily!
The picture shows the girls "ready to ride"... as stated before - they are 3, 4 (in the middle) and 2 years old.
The scooters arrived in great condition, very well packaged. Assembly took less than 10 seconds....literally. I might not be able to make toast without burning it, but I successfully put together this two-piece, one-assembly-manuever all by myself! Please hold your applause!!

These scooters are very well made. They are not flimsy, like most other character-patented, razor or radio flyer scooters. The construction is very durable, as well as the mechanics of the scooter itself. What attracted me most to this scooter was the foot-board. Across it is 4.25" and lengthwise it is almost 11.75". Compared to the Radio Flyers version of the toddler scooter, it tips very easily because the foot-board is extremely wide, at almost 5". From tip to tip, the handlebars are 10.25" across, and provide very easy steering. The braking on the scooter is very steady, rather than choppy or non-existent. My twins have scootered (it's now a word) through water without issue or fall to the scooter or themselves. There is no slippage from the wheels.
They have used this scooter almost every single day since their birthday party in mid-July, sometimes twice a day. I did debate on whether or not to get the Micro Mini or the Micro, but opted for the Mini only because of price and uncertainty if this would be something they would actually enjoy or just get pushed to the back of the garage.

However, two months ago, the brake came off seconds before my son went down a fairly steep hill. He was trying to slow down but was putting his foot where the brake should be and couldn't stop. Finally he bailed off the scooter, but it took him a while to figure out that he had to do that. Giving the scooter the benefit of the doubt, I ordered another one. Today as we were riding down the sidewalk, not going fast or doing anything strange, on a scooter only TWO MONTHS OLD, the brake just fell off again. Thank goodness both times my son was fine and wasn't needing to stop for a car or the end of a block.
I just spoke with the company and although they were very helpful and assured me that the brake could be easily replaced, they also told me that this is very likely to happen due to the way it's constructed. They believe that children "shouldn't need the brake" and if they do "they are going too fast". That's fine to say, but if a child is used to using one and trying to stop even at a regular speed as he/she approaches a street, the brake suddenly not being there is going to throw them. I wouldn't expect a four-year-old to have the presence of mind to figure out what to do in time to stop an accident.
Despite my love for this scooter, I am giving it up and going with a different brand. This is a recipe for complete and total disaster and I just hope they change their design before a child gets hurt.
This is the first review I've ever posted on amazon, and I only did it because I truly believe it could save a child's life. Please be careful with this scooter.
