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.

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.
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.
My quick summary: This scooter is built smartly, with a real weight limit (that I'm sure helps minimize the scooter's weight & build costs, but mom and dad won't be able to ride it). The steering mechanism requires only light action, so is easily operated, and is maybe even "too light" in that it can be easily over-steered (not necessarily beneficial for the younger kids, though it's not enough to cause it to tip over). The wheels are smooth and durable, and spin on good bearings. They're a bit small, however, so small lips at the edge of a driveway are enough to stop this in its tracks, causing it to tip forward -- so yes, adult supervision is required for the youngest riders, and protective gear is a good idea.
Our son didn't take to this right away. He immediately knew to stand on it and kick it around, but he was just as content to flip is around and push it like a lawn mower. I quickly realized he could benefit from somebody to use as an example, so for myself I bought an adult-appropriate Radio Flyer Smooth Rider Scooter, so we could scoot together.
The plastic deck is thin and ribbed on the bottom. It has no problem supporting a 30 pound toddler, but I believe the 60 pound weight limit is "real" -- not only in terms of deck sag, but also due to the intricate steering linkages that connect the front wheels to the handle.
The small deck is plenty big for small feet, and even though our son isn't consistent with his foot placement, there's always room for his second foot, even if he's standing right in the center of the board.
The steering really works well on this. It is very easy for small bodies to lean the handle from side to side, and the wheels move *a lot*. A really tight turn radius is possible -- definitely tighter than our son is able to maintain.
The brake is your standard rear wheel heel brake, and although our son know where it is, what it does, and how to use it (when the scooter isn't moving), he's happy just dragging his foot or jumping off when he wants to stop.
The handlebar height isn't adjustable, and are a little high though appropriate for a 36 inch tall kid. And although the handle isn't foldable as with most scooter designs, it is easily removable using a brightly colored thumb tab that is accessible from the bottom of the unit.
All in all, a great toy to have around for the boy. It's a great energy burner, a good balance teacher, and I'm having a blast scooting around with him.
