So THIS is fun: the boys and I just got some cool new Micro Kickboard scooters! Of course what kid doesn’t love a scooter, but let me tell you how fun it is for a MOM! Here’s the real dilemma: how do you keep up with them otherwise? Even when they are on their bikes I have to trot after them (and shout after them). Not any more! Now I glide around on the sidewalks with them. It’s so exhilarating, FUN, and frankly – it’s practical!
Micro Kickboard has scooters for every age and height in a wide variety of colors. Bennett has the three-wheeled green Micro Maxi with an adjustable handlebar which will be able to grow with him. Graham’s aqua blue Micro Mini has a fixed height handlebar and a low-to-the-ground deck that is perfect for him as he is learning to scoot. Both scooters have the lean-and-steer design which is very intuitive for them. You don’t physically move the handlebars, but just gently lean in the direction where you want to go. They both have easy to use brakes on the back, although my boys are apt to just jump off when they are finished riding.
My Micro White is gorgeous, right? It has an adjustable handle bar designed especially for adult height and glides along on the pavement like a dream. The Micro steers easily and the brake on the back is handy and I’m becoming more comfortable using it. It’s so smooth and fun to ride. Do I look like the fun, young, cool mom I think I am?
I have a feeling we’ll be enjoying a lot of outdoor time on them this summer. I want to send a big thank you to the team at Micro Kickboard for outfitting us with our new scooters – we are having a blast!
