When we first started looking at scooters a few years ago everyone I asked pointed us Micro-Scooters and their Mini Micro, perfect for a 3-year-old Monkey. I liked the idea of the 3 wheels and knew that would work well with my rather cautious son. So one was duly purchased and over the last 2 and half years it has certainly seen some mileage. Monkey loved it from the moment it arrived. But he’s nearly 6 now, and over the last few months I’ve realised we really needed to move to the next stage of scootering, he’s growing fast and outgrowing his trusty steed. We’ve been taking scooting to the next stage with Micro-Scooters and their wonderful new Maxi Micro T-Bar Foldable Scooter. This scooter is aimed at children aged 6-12 years.
I knew that Monkey would still prefer a 3 wheeled scooter when we moved him up to the next stage of scooter, and when I saw this new Maxi Micro has a folding mechanism, the choice was made. Having seen the quality of Monkey’s old scooter, I knew I would have no issues with this one. It would see him enjoy many adventures to come, AND would fit easily in the boot of the car. We’ve always scootering locally, now Monkey can scooter far and wide. Happy Days.
When you receive the Maxi Micro T-Bar Foldable Scooter you just need to attach the T-Bar handlebar to the footplate – it takes seconds.
The T-Bar handlebar is adjustable, from 67-93cms by using the height adjuster just underneath the handlebar. It’s very easy to raise and lower, until your child feels comfortable.
My son being the child he is, took a little getting used to the new scooter on the block. It wasn’t a case of not liking it, or not getting on it, it was more a case of needing a little time to say goodbye to his trusty old friend. I do love that boy.
Mummy, my horse can stay can’t he? Yes Monkey, your horse can stay. He was ready to say goodbye, ready for his new adventures to begin, ready to enjoy his new Maxi Micro T-Bar Foldable Scooter.
So I have a happy Monkey, but he was even happier when I explained that his new trusty stead would be able to come on further flung adventures with us. Look what it can do.
The Maxi Micro T-Bar Foldable Scooter is priced at £114.95 and can be found on the Micro-Scooters website, along with the rest of their ranges including some lovely scooter accessories.
We also received the Jungle Micro Safety Helmet (priced at £24.95) as well as the Jungle Croc Mini Micro Bag (priced at £12.95).
We received the medium-sized helmet (53-58cm) which is just a bit too big for Monkey at the moment, but it’s lovely and you’ll certainly be spotting that on my Instagram feed in the years to come! The Mini Micro Bag can be attached to the front of the scooter (all attachments and instructions are supplied with it) but Monkey prefers to use it as a little backpack. He’s all set for some wonderful adventures now. Let the next stage of scooter journey begin.
