There are so many Micro Scooters to choose from but we have looked and found these two amazing scooters, one being a Razor which is an extremely popular brand name.

A little more expensive but an incredibly popular brand, here we have the Razor Power Core E90 Electric Scooter that has a handle height of 61 centimetres, a fixed handlebar, 2 wheels and made from Polyurethane.

The wheel size is 15 centimetres and a very strong frame made from Alloy Steel with Slamm Nylon Core wheels and has an overall weight of 9.6 kilograms so a very sturdy electric scooter here from Razor.

LARGER WHEELS

This Micro Scooter has awesome 200mm wheels which means children can move much quicker and cover more ground in a shorter space of time but with a lot less energy. The larger wheels also provide a smoother ride which helps to improve their confidence in scootering.

WIDE HANDLEBARS

This has excellent wider handlebars for much better control. We find scooters can generally be a little narrow but with this Scooter, you now have a greater width given to the handlebars. A Great idea.

LOWER DECK – BETTER STABILITY

This has a lower footplate than most 2 wheeled scooters from other brands. This Micro Cruiser has been designed to give a lower deck which in turn provides better stability and balance as its lower to the ground. Again as above, this also leads to increased confidence in riding their scooter.

REPLACEABLE PARTS

Due to the excellent high quality design and manufacturing, this and the Micro Scooter range as a whole are made from replaceable parts. This means you can easily purchase a part and repair it yourself rather than send the whole scooter off or buy a new one. A scooter should be for life and this certainly will be.

What Age is a Micro Scooter for?

When invest in a high quality scooter, you should expect the frame and robustness to easily be designed for 6 to 12 year olds.

No matter what age of the child riding a micro scooter, we highly recommend every child to wear a safety helmet and that it is fitted correctly.

Additionally, lights should be added to they are easily seen by pedestrians and motorists even though they will not be riding them on any road. Finally, a bell is very useful to be heard so combine all of these factors and you have a much safer scooter ride and play than without these safety factors taken into consideration.

Can My 4 Year Old Ride a 2 Wheel Scooter?

Many scooter manufacturers and brands recommend ages of 6 of above, however they can be used for children at the age of 4 but not recommended. When a micro scooter can weigh around 2.5kg or upwards, this can become a significant weight for a young child if they were to fall off their scooter.

Saying that, there are a range of scooters which would be more ideal for a 4 year old such as 3 wheel scooters which provides more stability. Some also have designs where they have a height adjustable handlebar for smaller children.
