"Mommy! I can scooter like the big kids now!" These were the joyful words uttered by my four-year old as she rode down the sidewalk on her new Mini Kick Scooter by Micro. This sturdy, quality-constructed (did I mention easy-to-assemble) scooter looks and feels just like its big cousin, the Maxi Kick Scooter. Its unique three-wheeled design increases stability and balance which are crucial for younger riders.

Little ones can now improve their balance, coordination and gross motor skills while keeping up with the big kids. Furthermore, I am impressed by how seriously Micro takes child safety; its "Ten Safety Rules" are not only included in the box, but are illustrated and detailed on the box as well. In a day and age when screen time seems to be all the time, the Mini Kick Scooter encourages kids to get up, get out and get physical.
