The Maxi-Micro Scooter engineered by Swiss inventors is the newest scooter from Micro Kickboard. Unlike some other scooters, this scooters has three wheels, two in the front, and one in the back. It comes in various colors such as orange, blue, green, pink, and purple and can be found at various sellers, such as Target, Amazon, and microkickboard.com from around $100-$150. The scooter comes out of the box nearly ready to use and takes only a few minutes to assemble; all you have to do is screw on the squeezable and grippy handlebars and adjust the height. The scooter is adjustable from 690 to 920 mm and fits ages 5+, but the weight limit is 50 kg, so teenagers most likely can’t ride on it. Plus, it is pretty light, so a young child could carry it themselves, if needed.
