For the same reasons everyone does! The children of celebrities are often snapped riding Mini and Maxi scooters, and their parents are often seen on the Micro Black and White. We suspect they like them because for the same reasons we all do, because they are so smooth-gliding and fun to ride, and so well constructed that there is no shake or rattle when you roll!
One celebrity who likes to roll around on his Micro scooter is Wolverine and Les Mis star Hugh Jackman (not to mention the best host of the Oscars, ever). The press photos of Hugh riding scooters in Manhattan now probably number in the hundreds. He scoots with daughter Ava on her Maxi and son Oscar, and also with his wife Deb, and even with his french bulldog.
You also may have noticed that Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick’s adorable twins Tabitha and Marion ride their scooters everywhere.

And here’s Christian Bale aka Batman out with his whole family on scooters!
Celebs even ride the Micro Luggage Scooter…Will Smith’s son Jaden was recently spotted riding one through the airport during the promotion of their new film After Earth.the Micro luggage scooter through airports.
Celebrity ‘babies’ love the Mini Micro (also known as Mini Kick) – the older kids ride the Maxi Micro, and parents hop on the Micro Black or White, designed especially for adults.
When parents first watch their kids on Micro scooter, the first thought is ‘please everyone watch how amazing my child is on this scooter!’ because kids as young as 3 can look like real pros on them. The next thought is ‘how the bleep am I going to keep up with them’? The famously fit Hugh Jackman obviously figured out the answer to this quite a while ago – in a photo of Ava Jackman riding her new extremely pink Maxi Micro scooter home from the store, the Wolverine-in-training appeared to be running flat out to keep up with her.
Hugh did the sensible thing and hopped on Micro’s White scooter http://www.apatadas.
We are wondering if Karolina Kurkova, the gorgeous Czech model, whose son Tobin rides the Mini Micro…might want one too?
Kickboard USA says more and more parents (and dogowners) are turning to the Adult Scooter as a way to keep up with their kids on scooters. Scooters are great transport as well as being fun – they are about twice as fast as walking, and much easier to control than bikes; feet are close to the ground so hopping on and off or slowing down then speeding up, are all easy to do, almost instantaneously!
