Think back to your childhood. It's a beautiful summer morning and you're begging your mom to go outside. Some of us had bikes, some of us had scooters, and some of us just had our imaginations. Am I right? I grew up having a silver scooter. Man did I love that thing. I could scoot around on it for hours, just going in a circle around our patio furniture. Do you have memories like that? I knew that when I had children I would want them to have those same memories that I have, of proudly riding around outside with their scooter, using their imaginations, and having fun that didn't involve technology. Shouldn't your son or daughter have that same experience? Kickboard USA is here to help us achieve our goals of having our children make wonderful memories as well.
Kickboard USA is the official distributor for the Swiss company Micro-Mobility LLD. Micro-Mobility LLD creates high quality scooters for children of all ages as well as for adults! Kickboard USA sells the Mini 3IN1 (ages 1-5), the Mini Micro (ages 3-5), the Maxi Kick (ages 6-11) Kickboards which have three wheels (Teenage years & up), and Scooters which are 2 wheels (Teenage years & up). Aside from selling scooters they also sell accessories for the scooters as well as parts!
Kickboard USA generously sent me the Mini Micro for me to review with Little Miss D! I chose the color yellow so that when Little Miss D is to big for it, she can pass it down to her little brother to enjoy! I tried so hard to get a picture of the look on Little Miss D's face when I gave her the scooter but ever photo was blurred due to her jumping up and down in excitement, I literally couldn't get her to hold still even for two seconds! I want to apologize in advance for the ill lighting in the photos, the weather has been very hit or miss so we had to do this review inside of the house rather than outside! Lets talk about this scooter. When you take your Mini Micro out of it's box it will come in two pieces, the base and the steering/handle. Don't worry, assembly is literally the easiest thing ever. The scooter also breaks down just as easily as it set up so if you want to store it up in a closet or in a safe place in your garage.
Ready to Go!
The base of the scooter is just wide enough where a little foot can rest comfortably while the other foot is pushing off of the ground to get the scooter going into a nice glide. The base of the scooter is located close to the ground which will help your little one avoid tipping it, and if it does tip, they are close enough where they shouldn't get hurt! The wheels are smooth allowing an easy ride as well as easy steering!
Located at the back of the scooter is a foot break which is perfect for if your little rider gets going to fast and needs help stopping. A slight push on the large orange break will allow the scooter to stop gliding instantly!
The handle bars on the scooter are nice and "cushy" allowing for a comfortable and firm grip on the scooter to help with your little ones balance and steering.
Little Miss D absolutely loves her Micro Mini and in the time that she's had it, she has rode it every single day. I made sure to talk with her about the importance of wearing a helmet as well as other protective gear while riding her scooter and she promised me that she would wear it every time. Her mom and I were talking while I was at their house last week and she said that Little Miss D insisted on going to the store and buying a new helmet (her old one was sun rotted) before she would set foot on the scooter. I was proud that she had listened to me! I recommend that you pick up a Micro Mini for you 3-5 year old as well (don't forget the helmet!) and encourage them to create new memories this summer! If you have a child who is younger as well, stay tuned for another review coming up this week for a 3IN1 scooter designated for ages 1-5!
