The 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.

Wonderful Product
We love our Mini Micro so much that we purchased a Maxi Micro as my oldest grew. The product is wonderful. So easy to use and it grows with the child. Very safe and the colors are great. HIGHLY recommend these scooters!

Your scooters compared to standard scooters are like snowboarding is to skiing. The scooter becomes one with the child and my two year old was amazing.She had no problem keeping up with her 5-year old brother. We have purchased three other scooters since then. First one Maxi Micro then 2 Sprites. Love them all.
February 14, 2014
Maxi scooter is great.
I bought five of these scooters for my grandchildren for Christmas. They were a hit. The older grands also enjoyed them. They are very well made. Much more stable than a Razor. I highly recommend this product.

more kickboards in future
I first bought two kickboardsusa for my grandchildren last year...they love came before the date promised (within a week), packaged securely, not damaged, and was assembled in a few minutes.. The boy and girl, ages 6 and 4, started using them immediately in the house, they couldn't wait to go outside! I have taken them to the park myself with the kickboards in tow...needless to say, they have to be problem free and light enough for a a 60+ granny to handle. My latest purchase was the 3 in 1 for 2 yr old...he loves his as much as his older siblings....thank you to a company with wonderful customer service (I had some questions) and a quality product...I'm sure more kickboards R in my future.

We decided to go with the Maxi for our 4 year old and it's perfect! He loves it and so do his little friends. I received a text from his friends mother last night wondering what kind of scooter my son has because his friend went home and told his mom that he needs a MicroKick board too! ??

Yu-Wen S on Jul 3, 2017
My 5 year old daughter loves her Mini, and so does her older sister! They love using it, especially when we are making our way around city sidewalks. So, getting a Maxi for the older one was a no-brainer, and a great way to keep the peace in our house!!
Michael M on Jul 2, 2017
My son got a Mini for his 2nd birthday and loved it. His older brothers would ride the Mini all the time. He's out-grown the mini for this is for his 5th birthday. I also got on for his brother's 8th birthday to replace the Razor scooter.

Great reviews!
Mildred M on Jun 8, 2017
We have a Micro for our younger daughter, but our older daughter had some other (junky) scooter. Older daughter was never any good at it- we just thought she had trouble riding scooters, but the other day she hopped on her little sister's Micro and rode away... guess it's time to buy her a REAL scooter and watch both girls roll away!!
Rory P on Jun 8, 2017
We have two scooter types, a micro mini and a razorr three wheeler. The razor is very hard to use. The micro works very well.

EMILY L on May 26, 2017
I just ordered this for our youngests birthday because we bought one for his older brother on his third birthday and I have been impressed with how this scooter has held up . It glides so smoothly and is easy to steer. We previously originally bought a radio flyer and there is absolutely no comparison.
Jaclyn G on May 22, 2017

Is this scooter very different than the Mini? We want to purchase one for our daughter's 3 year old birthday. Thank you.

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).
How to fold?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This scooter does not fold down-- instead, it features a removable handlebar. This allows you to easily store and transport the scooter itself :)
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!
What is the difference between mini and maxi?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2015
Maxi Original
Maxi Original
Mini Original
Mini Original
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!
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!
What it the best height to adjust the handle bar to on the scooter? Above the waist, chest high, or above the chest?
Sam M on Mar 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Above the child's belly button, about the same height as their rib cage
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!
My 11 yr old weighs 200 pounds can he use this scooter?
Lorena L on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Apologies-- he cannot use the scooter as he is over the weight limit
What are the dimensions of the deck? My daughter wears a women's size 9 1/2 shoe -will her feet fit on the deck?
ESimp on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The deck is 13 inches x 5.5 inches. Your daughter should have no issues fitting her foot on the deck; just to note, you normally only have one foot on the deck at a given time (the other foot is either pedaling or hovering over the brake)
I ordered the scooter with the joy stick and would like to order the T-bar since my 6 year old may not be ready for the joy stick yet, how do I order the T-bar?

What is the difference between the maxi and the maxi deluxe? Also, do any of the maxi scooters have the clear colored wheels?
Mollie M on Mar 19, 2017

Should i remove the red protection at the bottom of the scooter?
Nesma on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No - please keep the red mudguard on the scooter =)
s this scooter assembled? Micro kick board, maxi kick board
Irene W on Dec 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: All you need to do is pop-in the (removable) handlebar and they are ready to roll! Only takes a matter of seconds =)
Does the maxi automatically come with joystick steering?
Ann H on Oct 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When adding the item into your cart, you select "color" and "steering option." If you would like the joystick model, make sure to select the joystick steering option when adding the item to your shopping cart.

The scooter otherwise does not come with both handlebars. That said, you can always order the opposite style of handlebar (separately) here:
how tall can you be and use the Maxi if you are 100 lb?
Kit Yue W on Sep 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Maxi is suitable for riders up to 5'3" or 5'4" depending on arm length. Cheers!
Does the maxi scooter have four wheels? I thought I've seen one that did. I'm confused!
Sunrise mama on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Maxi has two front wheels and a pair of identical (80mm) rear wheels; the rear wheels are side-by-side and almost appear to be a singular rear wheel.
How does the maxi ride on brick roads?
Sarah on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This scooter is not ideal for brick roads. To be honest, not many scooters are ideal for that riding surface. This scooter features smooth polyurethane wheels that are great on sidewalks and other normal types of pavement
What is the difference between maxi original and deluxe?
Elle T on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The main difference is "cosmetics"-- the Maxi Deluxe has graphics on the deck and an anodized handlebar
T-bar vs joystick... What are the pros and cons?
Ann D on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The T-bar is what we suggest for beginners-- it is more "traditional" and has kiddos' hands spread apart on each grip on the "T." The Joystick is for more-advanced riders and allows kiddos to curve/carve with greater athleticism. Please call us if you would like to chat re: the differences-- we have a toll-free telephone number, 888-236-5657, and are open Mon-Fri from 9am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).
Is there a way the mini can be converted to a maxi?
divya r on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is no means of "converting" a Mini into a Maxi, apologies! The scooters have completely different frames, molds, etc
flashing wheels for maxi?
saandra J on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Maxi does not have flashing wheels. Also, we do not have any accessories for the Maxi's wheels at this juncture (March 2016). 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).
My daughter is turning 4 but is 43" and 42lbs. Would she be able to handle the Maxi or would the Mini still be better for her, even with her being so close to the mini's weight limit?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathryn, your kiddo is at the "sweet spot" wherein she could go either route. If you are looking to "maximize" your investment, I would go with the larger Maxi. Please call us if you need further help with the decision-- we have a toll-free telephone number, 888-236-5657, and are open Mon-Fri from 9am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time (EST).

Does it have a brake?
Susan R on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has a rear fender brake (hovers over rear wheels). You use your foot to engage the brake
does the steering column turn the wheels?
Carol C on Nov 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Carol, the rider uses his/her body weight to "lean to steer" the scooter. You do not literally turn the handlebar like one does on a bicycle or something else with a singular front wheel. This "lean to steer" action is what we like to call surfing the sidewalk, cheers!
Can the micro maxi fit into a normal suitcase after it is disassembled ? What is the dimention after the disassemble flat shape ?
Claire C on Oct 13, 2015

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
