Choosing a scooter for a preschooler, preschoolers

For three years, my daughter asked me to buy her a scooter. We stopped our choice on the purple Maxi Micro model. I am sure that this transport will serve my daughter faithfully for years up to 6-7, at least (I will tell you in secret, I myself sometimes ride on it, because the maximum weight for it is 50kg).

Two-wheeled version of the force is not every child. In the shops we reviewed a lot of options – the daughter, of course, paid attention to the appearance (she especially liked models with Luntik, Princesses and glowing wheels). We, adults, paid more attention to the convenience, practicality and durability of the product.

Of course, there are a lot of scooters cheaper, but we decided to buy a quality one and the only, rather than buy a new one after each breakdown. So, we stopped on the model Maxi Micro of the Swiss company Micro Mobility Systems. The cost of the online store in Kiev – 5720rub. (1430 UAH).

It would be possible to order a scooter directly from Switzerland, thus it would be possible to save a little, but, alas, we did not have time, and did not want to give a gift a few weeks after the birthday.

By the way, this model is designed for children aged 4 to 7 years, for younger ones there is a Mini Micro option that can withstand weight up to 20kg and the height of the handle is adjustable to 67cm. But I do not regret at all that we still bought my daughter an option for more adults, because she is a pretty tall girl and the Mini Micro would be inconvenient for her, and it would be enough for just a couple of years.

Scooter made of plastic, aluminum and fiberglass, rear brake. It weighs no less – 2.5kg. The wheels are made of polyurethane, two front (diameter 120mm) and double rear (diameter 85mm). The height of the steering wheel is adjustable from 67 to 92cm.

According to the manufacturer, and he is not mistaken, the telescopic steering column has a classic T-handle to control the scooter. The footboard has a special shape and is additionally reinforced with fiberglass. The double rear wheel provides extra stability and an attractive appearance.

The range of colors is quite large – white, red, green, yellow, blue, purple, pink, orange, black. As it turned out, finding a pink scooter in Kiev is quite problematic, so we purchased a purple one.

Unlike conventional scooters, the wheels in it do not turn when you turn the steering wheel. Rather, the steering wheel in it does not turn at all. In order to rotate, you need to press the handle like a joystick. And the harder you press, the more the wheels turn.

In fact, it is easy, and even a three-year-old child masterly mastered the art of management in just a few days.

By the way, this company also has models with a handle of another type – not a steering wheel, but a vertical stick, which is even more similar to a game joystick, but this option did not seem very stable to me, and it’s inconvenient to carry your daughter on a scooter.

We actively use the scooter for the second year. When the daughter gets tired, she stands on the steps and I carry her. Due to the fact that the handle is quite high, it is very convenient to do, and you can also hang a package with products on the handle.

If you believe the instructions, the scooter is easy and convenient, but, frankly, I have never tried to do it, because there was no need.

The height of the handle is adjusted quite easily if you have short nails. If not, then they are likely to break. And it is better to use improvised means, the usual door key with which I press the button on the steering wheel helps me.

Maxi Micro is an excellent choice, it fully corresponds to its value. Durable, comfortable, maneuverable, beautiful. Its only disadvantage is the price. However, I repeat, if you order via the Internet from Europe, you can save about 30%.

I hope my feedback will be useful to you!
