On The Move With Kickboard Scooters {a Maxi Micro Review}

The fall has brought considerable changes for my little family.  Both kids are in school, and each new day seems to bring visible indicators that little ones are growing up.

Although I sometimes gripe when the weather is gloomy, I appreciate that our lifestyle makes us depend on our feet for transportation.  We take in a lot on our little excursions, and I definitely need the added physical activity.  While I sometimes depend on my stroller for my nursery schooler, many of our adventures are on foot or on scooters.

We were already huge kickboard scooter fans, prior to Lucia receiving a Maxi Metallic for review.  We purchased a Mini Micro for Lucia when she was in pre-school – and her brother somehow claimed stake on it around his second birthday. 

We’ve since been on more scooter riding excursions than I can possibly count.  It is an incredibly fun way for the children to travel.  Lucia’s sturdy Maxi Micro has given her the confidence to smoothly navigate uneven urban sidewalks and the school playground with her peers.  As a parent, I appreciate the sound 3-wheel maneuverability and ease of control.  Best of all, I don’t have to worry about the pavement-splats that I frequently witness among the poorly-designed scooter riders on the playground.

Although an investment at $129.99, the adjustable handlebars and outstanding quality ensure that the Maxi Metallic will last my first grader for many years to come.  And one can hope that the cool silver metallic color will enable boy/girl sibling sharing. 

All kickboard scooters are 25% off from now until October 31st.  Just enter code: HOLIDAY2013 at checkout.

Kickboard USA provided me with a Maxi Metallic for review purposes. As always, opinions are strictly my own.



  1. I love how your kids are your little fashion models! They are TOO cute and they really seem to enjoy being a part of the Blog! My son gets really involved too when I’m doing my food photos…although it’s mostly annoying at this point because he always just tries to stick his fingers in the food and eat it, lol!

    • Hi Lisa – I don’t think that they really know what is going on? I love documenting these years with photos. Although, if they ever don’t want to be a part of this space I will absolutely respect that.

  2. Fun! Your littlest one seems do pretty well on the scooter and he took it up at 2? Wow! My son sees these in stores all the time, but we got him a bike for his birthday, so this kind of thing will have to come later down the road. Love his shark helmet!

  3. Those scooters look so fun! Your kids look like they are loving them and having blast while doing so. So yeah, the initial price is nothing compared to the countless uses. I always LOVE what the littles are wearing ~ those leggings with the dress and Uggs on Lucia is my kind of style 🙂

    • Lucia has my kind of style too! I want her Uggs! We use these scooters all the time and will for years to come – the parts are all replaceable too.

  4. What wonderful adventures they can go on riding their scooters. Bonus is that they are using their little bodies as the motors. Perfect addition to any family wanting to increase their activity level while having fun. Santa may bring our little guy one of these this year 🙂

  5. You had me at “gives her the confidence”. I was going to get a razor for my six year old since she has outgrown her princess scooter, but I want her to feel safe and confident.

    • We had a razor for Lucia too. She just wasn’t confident on it and couldn’t keep up with her peers. I honestly can’t say enough good things about this scooter. It is fantastic!

  6. Great post! If you’re interested, I’ve written a review on the Micro Kickboard’s Micro Kick Scooter at http://kickscooter.org/micro-kick-scooter-review.
