You may remember a prior post about the benefits of travel scooters for kids. I stand by the advice because I forgot to pack the scooter on our summer trip to Paris and was upset with myself. The City of Lights involves a lot of walking. In fact, we walked from the Louvre to Ile de la Cite. It took 20 minutes and my daughter was not into it. Had we brought the scooter, the walk would have been a piece of cake.

In honor of Halloween, the folks at Micro Kickboard are giving one La Jolla Mom reader an orange Micro Maxi scooter ($129.99 value). It is the highest rated scooter for kids ages 5 – 12. Kids use their weight along with the handlebar to steer the scooter.

By popping out the handlebar, it fits nicely into a suitcase or even my big handbag. We love it and your kids will, too.


Micro Maxi features:

  • Ages 5 – 12
  • Removable handlebar
  • Weight capacity is 110 lbs
  • Weight of scooter is 5.5 lbs
  • Three-wheel construction

  2. I’ve had my eye on a Micro Scooter for my daughter for a while now but have had trouble biting the bullet. She (and the other kids in our family) would absolutely love this! That removable handlebar is a total game changer.

  3. I know a very special young man who would love to receive this as a gift. I have been trying to find the right gift and one that I can afford and this is just perfect for him.

  4. I’d like to win this scooter because my grandson has been begging to have one. Our next door neighborhood rides on his all the time in our cul de sac and my grandson would love to join him outdoors riding around! This would make a wonderful Christmas gift for my grandson!

  5. I would love to win this because it would make a great christmas gift for my 5 year old nephew. He has been asking for an orange 4 wheeler, and he wants a real one since we took him for a ride on ours. He loves the color orange because his daddy has an orange and silver truck and he wants to match daddy. We think he is still too small for an actual childs 4 wheeler, as he is still quite small for his age, due to many complications and surgeries for his heart among other things, so I think something like this would be great for him.
