she scoots, i scoot, we all scoot {Micro Kickboard}

When I was in fifth grade my best friend had a purple scooter. I wanted that scooter, I begged my parents for a scooter and in the end I never did get a scooter. When I saw that scooters where making a comeback, I knew that I had to get one for my girls.

Micro Kickboard scooters are where it is at. They have a scooter for just about everyone in the family. They recently sent us a Maxi Micro for my eldest daughter to review, which is for the 5-12 year old range and up to 120 lbs.  I wish I could insert a picture of my face when I found this out. Since I am the size of a 12 year old (really I haven’t grown since then) I was ecstatic. That meant I could try it out….you know for the sake of the review. Truth be told, I know that I can get my own, Micro Kickboard actually makes adult sizes (weight capacity of 220 lbs).They make mini sizes as well, with a 3 in 1 option that is perfect for ages 1-5. Like I mentioned before, just about everyone in the family can be gliding along on a scooter.

The Maxi is simple to maneuver and since it’s a 3-wheeled kickboard you don’t have to worry about balance like you do on a two wheeled scooter. You can just get on and go. The wide deck allows for easy foot placement along with keeping you stable and balanced.  This is key, compared to other scooters that I’ve seen, the Maxi’s base is one of the only ones that allows you to rest your foot easily behind the other while you steer and scoot.  This also allows for easy access to the foot break in the back of the scooters board. The Micro Kickboard’s wheels are small and are made of a hard rubber.  It’s a smooth, smooth ride and so much fun.

Scooters have come a long way since I was a kid.  Where it once was a bicycle style handle bar that you would have to rotate right and left to turn has now become an adjustable length T-bar that you move by tilting and steering. The Maxi adjustable handlebar can extend from 24 inches to 34 inches high. You can also choose the Pilot Stick style handle bar for a more advanced maneuvering style. I love that you can take the handle bar completely out. It makes for simple storing and traveling.

My daughter loves riding her kickboard (seriously so much so that I can’t even get her to ride her bike). She rides it everywhere. It’s great for when we have some older kids over, they are able to adjust the handle bar by themselves and all take turns. It’s very versatile that way and is hours of enjoyment.  The quality of these kickboards is superb and will last for many years. Micro Kickboard does have replacement pieces for all their kickboards and scooters just in case something does go awry.

If you get tired of one color or want to pass it on to somebody else of a different gender, no problem. You can even change out the deck to another color. The Maxi Micro comes in 10 different color choices. I’m sure you’ll find one to your liking. Purchase your Maxi Micro for $129.99 and if you have children younger than 5 check out the Mini. Or if you’re feeling spunky and want to feel the wind in your hair, go ahead a pick one up for yourself. I know I just might have too……

Special thanks to Micro Kicboards for providing a sample to facilitate this review.
