This pediatric physical therapy blog put our award-winning Micro Mini Original scooter in their lineup of Top Ten Gift Ideas for Children, with a focus on developing fine and gross motor skills while having fun. They said: “Movement is the tops! [Micro] address strength, coordination and balance.”
Katy selected our Mini Deluxe scooter to be featured in her gift guide for 2-5 year olds! (Pictured is our Target-exclusive Mini Deluxe Plus in Aqua) Here’s what she had to say about Micro: “Excellent quality, adjustable handlebar, and also can have light up wheels!”
Jen created multiple gift guides via Amazon's shopping lists and many include our scooters! Our Maxi Deluxe scooter is featured in her guide for 6 year olds and guide for 5 year olds, while our Mini Original kick scooter is listed in her guide for 3 year olds. While we’ve discontinued the Mini2Go that she recommends for 1 year olds, we’ve upgraded the design and carry 2 options for 12 mos through 5 years: our Mini 3in1 Deluxe and Mini 3in1 Deluxe Plus. Both perfect for learning how to sit and scoot!
Jen includes our Mini 3in1 Deluxe in her gift guide for 2 year olds, but we’ve found that at age 2, children enjoy standing to scoot. However, if you feel that your little one could benefit from a seat as they learn to ride a scooter, the seats on our 3in1 scooters hold up to 30 lbs.
Sara Foster of Barely Famous (and new head of creative for Bumble BFF & Bumble Bizz) shares her top picks for holiday gifts with online retailer, Maisonette. Among her girl-power-packed picks sits a pink Maxi Deluxe scooter. In Maisonette's Instagram stories, they mention that Micro scooters are Foster's go-to gift. We don't blame her! Who wouldn't love a Micro sitting under their tree?
Kristina included our Micro Mini Deluxe scooter in both of her Gift Guides for Toddler Boys and Toddler Girls. Here’s what she has to say about Micro: “This scooter is a favorite outdoor item in our home! (scooter comes in many colors) I really like that the front wheels and steering bar can swivel side to side to avoid a crash. That feature made the cost completely worth it in my opinion.”
One Micro feature we like to highlight is the non-marking wheels on Mini and Maxi models. If you think your child can only ride outside, think again! Our thick, PU wheels are perfect for indoor play as well.
The Micro Mini Deluxe scooter was included in June and January's Holiday Kiddo Gift Guide! They call this the ultimate lineup of gifts for any kiddo. What little one doesn't love scooting around?!
More Please Mama created a series of gift guides for various categories of gifts. Micro was featured in their “Toys That Encourage Movement” guide! Based in NYC and California, the minds behind More Please Mama have been loving on their kids’ Micro scooters for a while now. They raved: “We’ve been using Micro Kickboard scooters since our firsts were one and a half years old! So easy, so fun and so adorable. (and so convenient for city living!)”
Newbie on the blogging block (website on the way!), Birdie Interior, put the cutest gift guides for kids ages 0-7 on their Instagram feed.

And with a lineup of fun accessories, you can personalize your Micro to fit your little one’s interest.
Ilana Wiles, the mastermind behind the blog Mommy Shorts, featured us in her series of Gift Guides: 87 Gifts for the People I Love. Our Micro Maxi Deluxe scooter is featured right smack dab in the middle of the gift guide for her daughter, Harlow. Ilana notes that the items on this list are great for “any small but mighty 6 y/o who loves Barbies, music, building, scooting, fairies, and surprises.” She also featured our Unicorn Scootaheadz attachment which can often be seen on the @momyshorts Instagram tagging along on Harlow’s scooter!
Lauren curated a brilliant guide for kids ages 3+ and featured our Micro Maxi Deluxe scooter in her lineup! While our Maxi’s (pictured) are recommended for ages 5-12, Lauren says she’s loved Micro for her kids starting at age 2. Our Mini scooters are perfect for ages 2-5 (hitting that perfect 3 year old sweet spot!) Here’s what she had to say: “My kids have this scooter, and they love it! I love that the handle adjusts up and down so it grows with their age. It comes in a variety of colors, and I recommend for ages 2 and up!”
Exactly as their name stares, the site Athletic Minded Traveler connect those with an interest in healthy lifestyle and travel. We were thrilled to be featured in their Holiday Gift Guide for 2018! Led by best-selling author, accomplished corporate entrepreneur, and former nationally-ranked and sponsored triathlete, Jim Kaese, Athletic Minded Traveler is a well-respected source for all things health and fitness. Jim is "widely recognized as the leading authority in the healthy-travel marketplace. Active.com and Triathlete have claimed him as their “travel expert”, Health has recognized him as a “Healthy Hotel Expert”, and other national/international media frequently solicit Jim’s opinions on travel and fitness trends, including the Washington Post, USA Today, MSNBC, Chicago Tribune, Forbes, Self, and many others."
The team at Athletic Minded Traveler featured the Micro Pedalflow in their Holiday Gift Guide, naming it as a top gift for "the urban dweller or person who likes to park and GO!" They had some kind words to say about Micro's trusty steed: "Yes, bike and scooter shares abound these days, but sometimes you want your own ride and you want it to be low-maintenance. This is where the Pedalflow from Micro Kickboard comes in. It's a seat free bicycle that folds down easily so you can take it wherever you go."
Natasha from TwinDollicious included the Micro Mini Deluxe in her guide to Holiday Gifts and Style for kids. She says on her site that she appreciates brands that influence people to live their best lives, surely one of the reasons she chose Micro to be on her list! She calls us one of the "essential learning toys for toddlers." Natasha, we're flattered!
Brittany from The Ashmores Blog put together a toddler gift guide of everything she's getting for her little one, Leighton this year. On it, our Micro Trike! Perfect for kids ages 18 mos+, the Micro Trike is foldable and portable. It makes it easy to ditch the bulky stroller! Brittany says she loves the Trike because "it's lightweight and folds up easily! It’s under $100 too!"
Ok so technically this isn’t a gift guide but scooters are more popular now than ever, and it can be difficult to know if you’re getting a quality product when shopping online. For those already shopping for scooters, both our Maxi and Mini Deluxe scooters were Wirecutter’s pick as “The Best” for kids and toddlers. Here’s a bit of their commentary: “After recruiting six kids ranging in age from 1 to 10 to put seven scooters to the test, we concluded that the trendy Micro Maxi Deluxe is well worth the investment. It provides the smoothest, quietest ride of any scooter we tested. Plus, it has the greatest ability to grow with a child, with the stability to help small kids gain confidence and skills, and the agility to keep older ones zipping along joyfully for many years.”
