Micro Mini Deluxe Scooter Review
In my honest opinion, after watching my daughter enjoy riding this scooter for hours on end, I think that you won’t regret buying the Mini Micro Deluxe Scooter for your toddler aged 2 to 5. It is worth every penny!
We have been looking for a birthday gift for our (nearly) 2 year old daughter. Last year we bought her this beautiful piano, and for her 2nd birthday we wanted to buy her a first bike/scooter. One of our friends recommended that we buy the Mini Micro Deluxe Scooter, because it was simply the best scooter for her age.
My daughter tried it out at the store and was so happy about it. I finally bought it for about 80 quid from Amazon, and this is why I believe it is by far the best scooter for kids aged 2, 3 and 4 years:
- First off, it is really easy to assemble
- It is also incredibly easy to use. My daughter didn’t have any problems learning how to use it
- It is very durable, and unlike some other brands, it is made with the highest quality materials
- With its solid low deck, it is a breeze to scoot around. My daughter didn’t get a single scrape or scratch when learning
- It also has an easy lean and steer mechanism that enables young kids to use their body weight to balance and steer
- The front bar can be adjusted up and down as your child grows
With those comments, here is my in-depth review about this mini scooter for toddlers.
Micro Mini Deluxe Scooter Review
What Are You Buying?
I think this mini micro deluxe scooter is the best 3-wheeled scooter to get for your kid. It easily makes a great first scooter. It is marketed for kids 80-110cm tall (about 2-3 years) and has a weight limit of around 80 pounds. It is available in a purple colour, which is definitely favourite for most girls.
The first thing you’ll notice about this scooter is the fact that it comes with an adjustable handlebar (from about 48-68 cm) to enable scooting adventures start as early as 2 years and last even longer. It is also lightweight and as a result perfectly suited for small children.
The brake has been cleverly designed so that even the smallest amount of pressure will bring the scooter to a stop. Its sturdy deck and 3 wheels provide maximum stability, giving small children the confidence to master scooting.
Even though it’s recommended for kids aged 3 years, our 2 year old started with this mini scooter and it was just the perfect size. The front wheels are over 4 inches in diameter, with a small rear wheel in the centre for better stability, breaking and control around corners. The tires are made of durable rubber; not too hard to promote rolling resistance and not too soft to allow sliding.
The steering is a breeze; kids simply have to lean either left or right when steering unlike most scooters where kids have to turn the handlebars. As they lean, a unique mechanism on the front wheels, make them turn in the direction they are leaning to.
The wheels are of very low resistance, the handles are soft and grippy, the bearings are quiet and smooth, and the brakes work perfect under dry conditions (we do not recommend riding this or any other scooter in wet conditions, because the breaks may malfunction) The best part is the fact that you can easily remove the handlebars for portability or storage.
Overall, this is a very well-built, reliable and safe mini scooter for kids aged 2-3 onwards. It goes for around 80 pounds on Amazon, which is not inexpensive but it’s a fair price for the quality you get.
How Easy Is It To Use?
The mini’s 3 wheels along with the lean to steer action ensures stability and safety for young kids. The low-to-the-ground-deck also makes it very stable and easy to ride.
The steering feature allows kids to turn the mini-scooter by shifting their body weight to the right or left. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your kid learns to steer.
With regards to weight, this scooter weighs only 4 pounds – making it easy for little kids to pick up and carry.
Additionally, the flexible design of this mini scooter means that all parts are replaceable. It can be redesigned with new handlebars, a different deck and even wheels, and passed on to a younger sibling or friend.
What Accessories Are Included?
The box comes with a well-packaged handlebar stem, a solid low deck , and assembly instructions.
What Do We Think About It?
- It is by far the best mini scooter for toddlers on Amazon, eBay etc.
- Safe and easy to use. Your kid will never scrape their feet and ankles
- Ideal for 2, 3, 4 and 5 year olds with an adjustable handlebar
- Durable and well-built. Materials are of very high quality.
- All parts are replaceable, so if any part breaks, you just buy that part and get it repaired
- More expensive than other toddler scooters in its range
Anything Else You Should Know?
This micro mini scooter has a weight limit of 44 pounds. My daughter was close to 36 pounds when we bought it. If your toddler is big, you can go for the Maxi instead.
In my honest opinion, after watching my daughter enjoy riding this scooter for hours on end, I think that you won’t regret buying it for your toddler aged 2 to 5. It is worth every penny!
