Living in NYC, our strollers really become our cars where we take them everywhere we go. Now that my youngest (and soon middle) daughter is three years old we have been getting around with a new set of wheels. While she still uses a stroller, she is way more active and wants to move around just like her sister so we generally walk, and now scoot everywhere.

As an introduction to the world of scooters, she started with the Mini Micro Classic by Kickboard. As a three-wheel scooter, I put it together in seconds where I simply had to align the flat side of the T-Bar with the hole in the stroller and we were ready to go.

I instantly loved how light and easy it was to grasp (the scooter only weights 4.2 pounds) as she hopped on and held onto the adjustable handles. The beauty of this scooter is that it also offer children an intuitive riding experience as they learn about their weight and how it shifts during a ride.

During our test ride, this was fun to watch as she learned to shift from side-to-side to direct her movement as well as test out the brakes on the back. Another unique feature is having a removable and adjustable handlebar that is great for travel and storage.

I also loved the strong chassis that comes in a variety of colors, including yellow, red, green orange, aqua and more for a personalized and colorful way for your child to showcase their ride.

The scooter has also received tons of awards including the ASTRA Best Toy Award 2014, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold, Platinum and SNAP Award Seals 2009, 2010 and 2011, Parents’ Choice Award 2010, Learning Express Best Toy Award/Outdoor 2009, Tillywig Top Fun Award 2014.

Designed for kids 3 to 5 years old, we love this smooth and safe ride for our kids that makes it even easier for them to enjoy life outside of the stroller.
