I think that the scooter is a wonderful way of getting children active. So, when I had an opportunity to review a Mini Micro 3-in-1 scooter from Micro Scooters, I was naturally thrilled. This was because I had heard so much about the brand and know that their scooters are great quality.
On receiving the product, I could see that it was really well made and lightweight without being flimsy.
Now, have you ever had a product that you absolutely adore and you want your children to be just as excited about it? And then, you find to your horror they are not enthused about it?
This happened a bit with me this time. We loved the colour and the sit on. Aeryn was quite happy to be sitting and trailing her legs on the floor. But she was a little too big for this and I soon removed it and had it as a regular scooter.
The first time we took it out, she tried scooting but when she tried to steer it, she didn’t know how and she had a slight fall. Well, knowing Aeryn, she promptly decided that she would not get on it ‘ever again’ as she says. So, she would just walk beside it.
My face literally fell. Here was a product that I had admired and wanted for them for a long while. I didn’t push it because I know that the more you insist, the more adamant they will be to resist!
A month later, when we went to the park – pushing the scooter along, she got onto it herself. She still hasn’t got the knack of steering but when it veers to a corner, she gets off and goes around it and gets back on again. The key phrase being – gets back on again!! YAY! I was smiling again. 🙂
She is getting more and more confident with the scooter and I am so glad that it has been a big hit.
Micro Scooters really need no introduction. They are so well-known. And after having one, I know the reason for the fame.
We love our Micro Scooter because
- It looks cool
- It is sturdy
- It is lightweight and easy for a little child to carry/pull along
- It is easy to assemble
- Perfect for a beginner’s scooter to go from a ride on to a scooter
We would have been happy if there were instructions about the steering part of it.
I love the cool accessories that Micro Scooters have to go with the scooters too. I especially like the handle bar unicorn and the helmets.
In all, the Micro Scooter has been a welcome addition to the household. I love seeing Aeryn on it and scooting along. I am certainly going to get her a few accessories so she can use them with her scooter.
