The Micro Mini Kickboard is the highest rated scooter for children aged 2-5. Your child will love "surfing the sidewalk" on their Micro Mini, and you will love the years of fun and exercise it provides. The Mini is one of the best value present you will buy your child. The smooth gliding Micro Mini's 3 wheels, low-to-the-ground deck and safe steering all contribute to stability that makes the Mini perfect for pre-schoolers and kindergartners. What makes the Mini unique and fun is the lean-to-steer design; children steer by using their body weight to lean right and left, intuitively learning to lean into a turn, while developing balance and coordination used in many sports. The Micro Mini has the smoothest, quietest ride available thanks to high quality wheels and a flexible fiberglass reinforced deck, which together absorb bumps in the sidewalk. Safety certified by the CPSC, the Micro Mini is recommended for children up to 44lbs.

SAFETY - For best protection, we strongly recommend that children wear helmets and knee pads when riding. Non marking wheels allow children to learn to scoot in the safety of your home.

The best scooter!!!
My son was 3-years old when I ordered the Mini Micro. I read a few negative reviews on a popular name brand scooter that I was planning to order and one reviewer recommended the Micro Kickboard scooter over that brand. I have never been sorry I went with the Mini Micro! It is perfect! Great size, low to the ground, smooth ride. My son loved it so much that we got him the Maxi Micro for Christmas! It is so worth the price!

Love These!
My kids love these scooters and they are very well made. I did a lot of research before buying them and it paid off. I especially love the intuitive steering. Wonderful investment.

Great for the Whole Family
I first bought the Mini Micro for my 3-year old daughter who was fearful of falling. The Mini Micro is so easy to learn to scoot with! The two front wheels gave her the confidence to scoot with more speed and it took her only a couple of days to ride. I also bought the Mini Micro 3 in 1 for my 15-month old son...people stop and stare because they can't believe a child this young can ride! They are so safe for young children and a definite confidence scooter. And of course they couldn't have all the fun, so I bought the Micro White for myself and I can scoot with my kids now..tons of fun!!

Love the Mini
Very easy to ride, and it's safer than other product!

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.

Son Loves His Scooter
We got my son a Mini Micro when he turned 3 years old. He loved it then, and he easily picked up how to ride it. He rides it all over the place and at age 5 still loves his scooter. He's small for his age, but might soon be ready for a Maxi Micro.

We read really good reviews about the micro minis, and we were not disappointed! The quality is excellent, and my son loved his mini until he grew out of it. He has used it so much more than his tricycle, balance bike, or even the new bike he got for Christmas 5 months ago!

Joanne P on Apr 8, 2017
This scooter was purchased for my son for his 3rd birthday. he LOVES it. it has been passed down to my daughter and she loves it too. The reason i bought another is because our little neighbor love it so so much that he refuses to ride on his own scooters and will only ride on ours (which causes fights, as you can imagine). Now he will have his own!
Leah A N on Apr 8, 2017

My little girl's cousin has this scooter and absolutely adores it. My little girl is rather short for her age and every bike, riding toy and tricycle we have ever tried for her has been too big. She was so thrilled when visiting her cousin last week she tried this scooter out and finally found a riding toy that was not too big for her. We knew we had to get it for her for Valentine's day!!!
Jolie S on Feb 11, 2016
Quality and my grandson's favorite color.
Margaret L on Feb 10, 2016
Saw a child on this at the park today and my 3 year old son who has good balance but still refuses to ride a bike took to it instantly. After hearing such good feedback from the other parent about the scooter, I cam home and decided that I had to order him one right away.

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

Maxi Original
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).
Can the steering bar on the Mini collapse for ease of transporting in a car?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Micro Mini features a *removable* handlebar-- this allows you to easily/quickly pop out the handlebar for easy storage/transport of the scooter itself. Cheers!
My daughter is tall for a 2 year old. Can she ride the mini? Does she need the O bar or do you think the regular bar is fine?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Most *tall* 2-year-olds are able to use the scooter with the standard T-bar (handlebar). It is mainly shorter kiddos (aged 2) that benefit from the shorter O-bar handle
How to dismantle?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is a red tab at the bottom of the handlebar, press-in this red tab and pull the bar away to quickly separate the handle and scooter base. This makes storing and transporting the scooter much easier!
what is the learn to steer mechanism?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, there is "steering hardware" located on the scooter's underside that allows the kiddo to simply lean his/her body weight left and right to curve and carve. This is what we affectionately refer to as "surfing the sidewalk" here at Micro :)
Is there a minimum height?
A shopper on May 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: While we do not have an "official" minimum height, we have found that most children ages 2.5-and-up can use the scooter. The distance of the handlebar from the deck is 24 inches. Children can use the scooter easily for several years, reaching up when smaller and down when bigger
What is the difference between mini and maxi?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2015
Mini Original
Mini Original
Maxi Original
Maxi 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!
Why is there a price difference between the micro mini scooters for different colors such a purple ($79) and the pink/purple ($59)?
SF Mom on Aug 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The only difference is cosmetics/colors. Cheers!
I need replacement part of fender ,not sure I need break as well?
Ashok M on Jul 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The rear fender and "brake" are the same thing :)
I see it's recommneded 3-5, is that based on weight or height? what are height weight limits before you would got bigger scooter.
Chris M on Aug 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Chris, it is based on both (generic guidelines for height *and* weight). The max weight for this scooter is 44 pounds, the max rider height is generally about 43 inches. We recommend kiddos weigh at least 35 pounds prior to bumping up to the next scooter, known as the Maxi :)
can the O-bar be used with the micro mini?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can! The O-bar handle is shorter than the standard T-bar and allows even younger kiddos to get in on the scooting action :)
What is the weight of the mini?
s C on Jul 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The scooter itself weighs 4.25 pounds. It has a weight limit of 44 pounds. Cheers!
Brake broke, where can I get a replacement?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, you can purchase one right here:

It is $6.99 with free shipping (via USPS). Cheers!
The scooter is folding?
Anna K on May 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This scooter does not fold-down. It instead has a removable handlebar (T-bar)
I need new Handel bar grips? How do I get replacements

Does Micro mini ORIGINAL come in green ?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does! It is stocked and ready to ship as of today (3/10/17). Please note, you will not be able to complete any purchases on our website if you are viewing the website from outside of the United States
What is the difference between the mini micro from mini micro deluxe and does the T-bar from the original mini adjust?
Yoshelyn H on Dec 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They key difference between the Mini Original vs Mini Deluxe is indeed the T-bar:

Mini Original: T-bar does *not* adjust and is at a fixed height of 24 inches

Mini Deluxe: T-bar is adjustable, can be adjusted from 17 inches - 25 inches

Aside from the T-bar, there are only small cosmetic differences between the two models (no other design differences)
Do you deliver overseas?
Inebay on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We do not-- we can only ship within the United States
What age? Description says 2-5; video says for kids 3 and older.
Elle V on Sep 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is for ages 2-5
What is the weight limit for the mini? My son is turning 4 however, big for his age. He weighs approximately 40-43 lbs. trying to decide between the mini and maxi
Michelle B on Aug 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Mini Original has a weight limit of 44 pounds. For your kiddo, I would actually suggest the Maxi (normally ages 5-12) as he is already big enough to use that scooter and the Maxi will properly "grow" with him. Namely, if you have a 4-year-old that is comparable in size to other 5-year-olds, your kiddo is probably more than ready for a Maxi
Is the t-bar able to move up or down on the Mini? If yes, how? Same question for Maxi. Thank you.
Jennifer G on Apr 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This product (Mini Original) does not adjust height-wise. The Micro Maxi does adjust (from 24 inches up to 36 inches)
I have a newly 5-year old who is somewhat uncoordinated on a scooter. Will the Maxi be too much for her to handle and learn on? I missed the boat on the Mini when she was a good size for it!
Harmony C on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is no "extra skill" required to ride the Micro Maxi (ages 5-12). If your kiddo weighs at least 35 pounds, he/she should have no troubles using the Micro Maxi

T-bar Steering Rod - Micro Maxi #1269
BEST ANSWER: No, you cannot put a Maxi (ages 5-12) handlebar into the smaller Mini (ages 2-5) scooter. Doing so can break the Mini scooter

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).
My son is 3years old and 4 month but is tall and weight around 60 pounds, which scooter do you recommend?
scooter on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As your son is over the weight limit (50 pounds) for this scooter, we would indeed recommend the next step up. It is called the Maxi (normally ages 5-12), here is a link:

is mini recommended for child as young as two?
Deborah H on Feb 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Deborah, the Micro Mini has been safety-tested and is approved for use by riders as young as age two. We do not overtly market this age range (yet!) as many of the boxes still read "3-5." Cheers!
Are these able to be used in grass, or on a gravel drive way? Easily by a 3 and 4 yr old?
Kim L on Dec 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These are only suitable for use on paved surfaces (ie sidewalks). Please do not use on grass, gravel, or any other type of unpaved surface. And, yes, these are very easy for 3- and 4-year-olds to use on paved surfaces :)
