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?
