The Micro Maxi Kickboard is the highest rated scooter for ages 5 to 12. Kids love the ride, and you will love the years of fun and exercise it gives, making it one of the best value presents you can buy your child. The smooth gliding Maxi has a curving and carving action that allows kids to surf the sidewalk like a skateboard, with the handlebar providing greater control and maneuverability. Kids use their body weight and handlebar to lean into a turn, resulting in smooth, safe turns. The Micro Maxi has the smoothest, quietest ride available thanks to high quality polyurethane wheels and a flexible fiberglass reinforced deck, which together absorb bumps in the sidewalk. Safety certified by the CPSC, the Micro Maxi is recommended for kids up to 110 lbs. Its exceptionally strong construction is flexible and light weight, making it a great cruising scooter for urban and suburban neighborhoods alike. Many kids use their Micro Maxi to ride the sidewalk to school.

STEERING - Choose between the traditional T-Bar or the Joystick for maximum curving and carving action. The handlebar styles are interchangeable and available as an Accessory, so if you choose the T-Bar to start you can upgrade to the Joystick as skills develop. Both Maxi’s steering sticks extend from 24 in to 34 in above the deck.

SAFETY - For best protection, we recommend that kids wear helmets and knee pads when riding.

AWARDS - Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award Seal and Platinum Seal (2009), Parents Choice Approved (2010), Universal Design Award and Universal Design Consumer Favorite (2009), Red Dot Design Award (2009)

Best Way to get Around
We LOVE the Mini and Maxi Micro scooters!! Best purchase we've made for our kids. We live close to an historic downtown city, and since the age of 2 our children have scooted as their main mode of transportation. We can take them everywhere, and also easily tote them on the trolley ride home when the little ones are tired. We've flown with them as well, from trips to Cape Cod, to trips to Santa Barbara, these scooters have been all over the USA! People ask us about them regularly, as they are amazed at how well, and how responsibly, our children navigate the sometimes busy sidewalks. Our nearly 4 year old will be receiving a new Maxi for his birthday in a few short weeks, and I know he'll be thrilled to have a 'big' scooter like his sister. 5 stars all around!

Perfect gift
This is one of the best gifts I have given my grandchildren. I started with the mini - then moved up to the maxi as they grew up. Now five have a maxi and one has the mini - for now. It is durable and they all love it.

Love the 3 wheelers
Purchased for grandkids. Great fun & exercise.Have replaced wheels and brakes.Excellent product and service.Mini Micro outgrown and replaced with Maxi Micro. Grandkids still ride and enjoy their scooters. (Ages now: boy 12, girls 9 & 6). Quality and build well worth the price.

Love These!
We have a Mini Micro and a Maxi Micro and I love them and my kids love them. We're pretty laid back so indoor scootering occurs and these are great for both racing around the house and making a run to the coffee shop or around the lake. Best features are ease of maneuvering and replaceable parts, but that said, we haven't had to replace any parts yet and it's been 4 years.

Is this scooter very different than the Mini? We want to purchase one for our daughter's 3 year old birthday. Thank you.
A shopper on Jul 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, we normally would recommend the Micro Mini (ages 2-5) for a 3-year-old. The larger Maxi (ages 5-12) weighs a bit more than the Mini and can be more-difficult to steer for riders under the age of 5. Please let us know if you have further questions-- we have a toll-free telephone number, 888-236-5657, and are open Mon-Fri from 9am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).
What is the difference between mini and maxi?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: To choose between the Mini and Maxi, we recommend that you consider the size of the child in addition to their age. The Maxi is designed for children ages 5-12, up to 110 lbs, but may be suitable for a younger child depending on their weight and coordination. The minimum weight requirement for the Maxi is 35 lbs. This in mind, the Mini's lighter weight makes it easier to maneuver and helps build confidence for younger riders.

The Maxi weighs 2 lbs more than the Mini and its deck is 1 inch wider and almost 2 inches longer; this makes the Maxi a little more challenging to control, maneuver, and pick-up when compared to the Mini. The Mini's steering bar is fixed at a height of 24 inches above the deck; the Maxi's steering bar is adjustable from 24 inches up to 36 inches, allowing it to 'grow' with the child.

Please bear in mind that all parts are replaceable on Micro products; thus, when a child outgrows a Mini/Maxi, it can be refreshed as needed to be passed on to a younger sibling or friend. By changing the handle bar grips, deck color, wheels, etc., the scooter can be made "like new." Cheers!
How do you adjust the handle bars?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: To adjust the handlebars, you unlatch the black clamp, adjust to desired height, tighten clamp (if necessary), and then finish by re-latching the black clamp. Cheers!
There is a maxi micro with foldable T-bar in blue and pink available on the website. Why is that one not shown here?
Shilpa K on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We are sold-out of the folding Maxis currently (July 2015) but hope to have them restocked by September 2015. Cheers!
how does one remove the T bar for travel?
Brooke S on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is a small red tab located at the very bottom of the scooter's handlebar; this is what allows you to snap the handlebar into (and out of) the scooter base. Simply press in the tab and pull the handlebar out to remove. Cheers!
Promo code?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, we do not have any promo codes currently available for the Micro Max (as of 6.8.15). Cheers!
do you have to be a certain height/?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We normally recommend that kiddos are at least 42 inches tall and weigh at least 35 pounds prior to bumping up to the Micro Maxi (ages 5-12). Cheers!
Do you use the handle bars or tilt to turn the scooter? I want to know mainly if the base of the scooter tilts?
Julie W on Sep 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You lean to steer this style of kickboard. The handlebar does not literally turn, the rider instead uses his/her body weight to steer the ride; this is similar to how one steers whilst surfing or skateboarding. Cheers!
Is it possible to buy joystick itself later on?
Jordan V on Sep 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jordan, yes it is! We sell Maxi joysticks (handlebar only) on our website right here:

Can you put the O bar on the maxi ?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, the O-bar (handle) is only compatible with the smaller Micro Mini (ages 2-5). Cheers!
Can you put the I bar in the maxi? So your littlest ones can ride?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, the O-bar (handle) is only compatible with the smaller Micro Mini (ages 2-5). Cheers!
