What's the best scooter for a 5-12 year old?

One of the most commonly asked questions we get is "what's the best scooter for my 5-12 year old?". Once they've grown out of their beloved Mini Micro there are lots of great options for their next new ride. Whether they want to stick to the familiar, try out a cool two wheeler or start doing jumps at the skate park, Micro's got them covered.

Are they still attached to their Mini Micro? Need extra stability and love using a 3 wheeler? Want something that is robust and can take a thrashing?

Kids loving their Micro scooters

Maxi Micro is the next step up from the Mini Micro with 3 wheels and lean to steer action. If they're still working on their balance and coordination then the Maxi is great for stability. It has adjustable handle bars letting it grow with them and last longer. If they don't want to say goodbye to their Mini but they've grown out of it, then the Maxi is the way to go.

Are they confident at balancing and want a cool two wheeler to cruise to school? Need something that's easily folded, stored and carried?
