Outdoor Fun with Micro Scooters: Scooters for all ages

Outdoor fun with Micro Scooters

Outdoor life and fresh air. You can’t beat it. We try to get out most weekends, whatever the weather…I find it is good for the soul. I have to say though, just lately our family walks have often ended before they have really started, with myself and the hubby carrying the two younger children home.  When we were sent some lovely items from Micro Scooters, I am not sure who was more excited – the adults or the kids?! I was hoping it would result in some lovely family walks without carrying a child who’s legs have suddenly become ‘too tired to walk’….before we have even managed to walk 10 metres.

Micro Scooters

Ten years ago, Anna Gibson discovered the Mini Micro Scooter. Her son gained confidence and independence and she then started selling them. Teaming up with her friend Philippa Gogarty they formed Micro Scooters Limited in the UK. They have worked with Micro Mobility in Switzerland to help to develop the Maxi Micro. Not content with scooters, they also manufacture scooter accessories for the UK and International markets, allowing children and parents to personalise their Micro Scooters and travel with safety in mind.

There are so many options on their website and you will find a range for all ages.


Mini Micro Deluxe LED Scooter

We chose the Mini Micro Deluxe LED scooter in green for our three year old. And let me tell you…we have one very happy little girl!

The Mini Micro Deluxe LED scooter is suitable for ages two to five with a maximum weight of 5st 7lb (35kg). I love the fact that there is an adjustable handlebar to ensure the scooter grows with your little one. It has tilt and lean steering and a removable handlebar for easy storage and transportation. The best feature (according to our three year old?) is the LED light up wheels that light up as your little one scoots along.

Maxi Micro Deluxe foldable Scooter
We chose the Maxi Micro Deluxe foldable scooter in petrol for our eldest daughter and this is suitable for ages 5 -12 with a weight limit of 11 stone. It has three wheels so is easy to balance and ride, and I love that this scooter folds with a click to allow for convenient transportation – genius idea. The scooter has an adjustable handlebar, non marking puncture free wheels and a brake. Our eldest loved the metallic petrol colour, and the light and bell accessories are a wonderful extra.
Micro Trike
We chose the Micro Trike in black for our little man, and I can’t wait to share this with you. This trike is for 18 months plus and is incredibly lightweight (weighs 4.9lbs) and folds down flat meaning it can be stored pretty much anywhere…it lies flat when hung on coat hooks, and it fits in the smallest of spaces!
It is a great way to travel without the need for a pram. We have previously had a large trike, only this one is far less bulky and fits into a boot with ease. The foot rest is adjustable, the seat is sturdy and we used the straps for added safety. Our little boy loves it!
Browsing the website you will find a huge range of accessories to personalise each scooter, from brightly coloured helmets, bells, lights, bags, ribbons and windmills. You will be spoilt for choice. We added lights and bells to the girls helmets, but I am already making a mental note to add the beautiful streamers and windmills to their birthday list.

S C O O T E R S. We take them on all our UK travels and they seem to provide endless hours of outdoor fun! They don’t take up much space in our campervan either so I find them so easy to pack. Our girls absolutely love their @microscooters …..and I am just a little bit in love with their helmets…… . . . #gifted #outdoorkids #outdoorfamilies #microscooters #ig_captures #cornwalllife #cornwall #myfamilyadventures #myfamilyadventures #mycolourfulkids #whatevertheweatherkids #lifeisoutdoors #myhappycapture #moretoexploreoutdoors #worldoflittles #lionessmama #cameramama #explorerkids #myhappyviews #parenthood_moments #funseekingkids #lifewithinfourcorners #pottyadventures #lovelifeoutside #watchthemlearn #takeyourkidseverywhere #mummyshot #naturelearners

The Verdict

We have a real love for Micro Scooters. They are fun, well made and there are so many options to choose from that grow with the child. The scooters come with us on all of our camping and outdoor trips, as they provide hours of entertainment on our travels. We recently took them to Cornwall for February half term and the kids loved to scoot about the resort. I love anything that encourages children to have some time away from screens and get outside to enjoy nature and the fresh air. Micro scooters do just that… and they bring fun and enjoyment to our wonderful family walks. That for us is priceless.
