Manufacturer: Micro Kickboard
Price: $139.99

The Micro Foldable Maxi is a one-piece full size adjustable foldable scooter that allows the child to steer shifting their body weight. The scooter comes almost fully assembled; installing the handle bar and pole, involved one simple insert. The wheels are made from a strong material that will allow for hours of play, exploring and learning. The steering is responsive to the shifting of the child's weight, easily and naturally encouraging balance and coordination. The attached foot brake to the rear tire was effective and easy for little feet to successfully manage. The handlebar was easily adjusted for different heights so all children could feel comfortable when riding. The handlebar folds for compact storage and portability. Another nice touch? The "safety rules" are detailed with pictures so children can comprehend the information on their own. Helmet use is encouraged and pictured throughout the manual.
