A scooter for each grandchild
Grandchildren love the scooter. It was easy to attach the handle and the scooter wes ready to ride. My gorgeous three year old said with a beaming smile "i love my scooter Grandma "
Purchased in April 2020 at Trend Micro.
Great for 1st Year
Never will I buy again. We bought 2 for my 3 and 4 year old at the time and both back wheels needed replacing.
Ordered new wheels and screw were totally jammed together so couldn't release the wheel.
Now have to go and buy a steel drill bit to try and drill the original screw out
Purchased in December 2018 at Smyths for $90.00.
Great scooter until the brake broke!
Really great scooter for the kids to learn on and ride to school everyday. We have loved using the scooter for my first born. I was, however, hoping to pass it down from my eldest to my younger sons as it is not a cheap scooter. Had the scooter for four years and the break has just snapped off. Can't justify spending another $160 for that to happen again when we have had much cheaper scooters last far longer.
Purchased in December 2015.
Best scooter in the market - keeps on going
I have had my daughters Micro scooter for 5 years. It’s done hundreds if not a thousand kilometres. And it’s still working 100%, except the break that my daughter broke after 4 years in a trick she was doing (her fault not the scooters). Unlike other scooters this one has this amazing wheel system which allows you to lean left and right without the scooter falling over. Because the bar unhooks, we have been able to travel with it all the way to South Africa. Best value for money and product!!!
Great colors .. easy to assemble, planning on packing in suitcase as nice and light and small - size 2-5 yrs.
my 2 yr old has never been on a scooter before but got the hang of the deluxe model instantly!! The
Just what the Physio ordered!
My two year old grandson has a problem with balance and the physiotherapist recommended that he ride a scooter. He was thrilled ... as were we when we watched him grow in confidence as he gained independence and balance. Thank you to Rob from your office for your excellent service and advice.
Perfect for kids just wish the wheels were better
We absolutely love this scooter, we brought it for my 4 year old and he uses it daily. The only issue we have had is with the brake wheel, it doesn’t seem as strong as other brands, because we live in a street that has a slight incline he has to break firmly which has resulted in needing to replace the back wheel within 2 month. We replaced said wheel and now within 2 weeks you can see wearing again. This is not a problem I’ve found with any other scooters from other brands with 4 older children.
We found customer care great and they did replace the first wheel for free but am worried about having to continue to replace back wheel every couple of months.
Awesome little scooter
Awesome little scooter, we got the Mini Micro deluxe. We got the aqua colour which is really nice. The handle bars are adjustable for height, perfect for growing kids so it will last for ages. My son loves it. The two wheels at the front make it stable and easy to ride. Highly recommend this scooter
A+++ Best learner scooter
We have two kids 3 and 4 years! This scooter has been the best scooter for them to learn on. The 3 wheels on it gives them both such control and confidence to learn at their own pace and speed. It's also built to a high quality. We highly recommend the micro. A+++
Scooter is good but fades easily
We have two of these scooters and while they are great and the kids love them I have found that they fade very quickly despite being put away out of sunlight after each use. My daughter has the red one and it's now pale pink, my son has the blue and it hasn't faded as bad though the black bar has faded a lot. I don't think it has affected the quality or the use but it is disappointing considering the cost of them.
Good scooter . Dreadful customer service
Inaccurate and deceptive video on how to replace the brake led to my sons scooter being broken/unusable. Inadequate customer service following this without even an offer to refund the part I purchased . Buyer beware of Micro. The scooters are good...till something goes wrong after which the customer service is terrible.
Still going strong after 3years but..
Purchased for my sons second birthday, he is now 5.
He loves it and can go pretty fast on it. And it's very stable with the three wheel design.
He likes to flip it over and push it in front of himself on the front wheels which caused the front shield-plate to crack and brakes. Looks ugly, probably a few sharp edges but works fine.
We had a problem with the brake snapping off and had to replace it. Not too much of a pain if you are handy.
Also his rubber handles were yellow and now they are black. I've no idea why they are like this as friends scooters don't have the same issue.
Overall happy with purchase but some design tweaks could make it amazing
My childrens best friend
I have 2 mini micro scooters and all 3 of my children are now in love with them. They find them very easy to use and has helped my youngest with her balance immensly. The quality is excellent with my first purchase being 5 yrs ago. And its still like new. Go mirco scooters!

Wish I'd found this earlier
I got a mini micro and seat for my 18 mth old after doing some research.... Loves it.... Started with seat, moved onto scooter within a couple of months, but still asks to use the baby seat sometimes....he's a pro now at 23mths! Could have saved myself buying other rids in toys..... He would have been fine on this at 12 mths. Got a kickboard compact for me he loves riding together! I have been stopped by admiring parent or grand-ps in the park to ask about it so many times....

Ok till something breaks
We have had two mini micro scooters which are great for a while. However the brake has snapped off easily on both scooters requiring us to buy two replacement brakes. The rear wheel has worn down which we accept as part of normal wear and tear and we were happy to buy a new one. We have followed micro scooters own instruction video on YouTube but cannot get the rear wheel removed from either and have shredded the ends of Allen keys trying to undo the "loctite" mechanism. So now the ride is wobbly. For this money I would expect better and think from now on it would be better buying a cheaper scooter and replacing the whole thing for the cost of micro replacement parts.
Questions & Answers
I would like to buy a scooter for my 4 year old girl. She is 104 cm tall. Which one would you recommend? She wants to be able to move it and carry around by herself. Thank you! Tanja
Thank you for your enquiry.
Currently she is best suited the Mini Micro Deluxe scooter. It is a very lightweight scooter weighing just 1.9 kg so will be easy for her to maneuver and carry, it uses a lean to steer principle which will help develop her balance and co-ordination skills as well as having an adjustable handle bar so you can set it to the most comfortable height for her.
Mini Micro Deluxe - https://www.microscooters.com.au/products/mini-micro-deluxe-scooter-purple
Given that she is 104 cm tall however it may not be too long before she out grows this scooter - it is suited for kids up to 110cm tall.
So you potentially may want to look at the the next model up which is the Maxi Micro. This scooter is designed for aged 5 - 12 (however there are younger kids out there that ride this model) and for kids 110cm tall and above.
It uses the same lean to steer principle and is just a bigger more robust version of the Mini.
It is a slightly heavier scooter at 2.6 kg but may be light enough for her to carry if needed.
I hope that information was helpful but if you have any other questions please don't hesitate to contact us directly via our website here:
Hi, thank you very much for your answer. So, you think micro mini classic is not a good option because it doesn't have an adjustable handle bar? I am thinking to get her maxi ehen she grows out of this small one.
You're very welcome. It's not that the Mini Classic isn't a good option, you just don't have the benefit of being able to adjust the height of the handle bar.
We actually no longer carry the Mini Classic in Australia as we have superseded it with the Deluxe version but there may still be some retailers out there that still have some.
Ah okay, that sounds like a good idea.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Would you recommend a mini micro deluxe or sporty edition for a small 3 yo? does the sport edition have an adjustable handlebar?
Thanks for your question.
For a small 3 year old out of the two options I would recommend the mini micro deluxe.
The adjustable handle bars give it a longer life cycle so that as he grows the height can be set to the perfect level.
The mini micro deluxe also has a silicon injected deck providing slightly more grip in comparison to the sporty.
The sporty also does not have the adjustable handle bars.
Hope that helps but any other question you may have please let me know at email@example.com

Hello. I am about to buy a scooter for my son. He is 2.5 and tall (97cm). Would you recommend the mini micro or the mini micro delux? He has never used a scooter before. Thank you
We have the mini micro, delux wasn't available when I got mine. My son is 2.5 too now. I think the delux folds, but the Std clips apart easily anyway.
My son is short so the standard is fine for him even now at 5.
But I think for a tall child the adjustable stem would be great.
Hi, thanks for your question.
Both the mini micro and the mini micro deluxe have a maximum handle bar height of 67cm and is recommended for children up to 110cm high.
The deluxe does have the ability to adjust the handle bar height as opposed the to mini micro so is great for growing children.
The deluxe also has a silicon injected deck which provides slighlty more grip and has an anodised metallic finish.
Both scooters use a lean to steer function which is a great way to develop balance and motor skills, and have high quality non marking polyurethane wheels.
They are both extremely light at 1.9kg so are perfect for the novice user to easily maneuver around.
With him being this height he may not need the adjustable handlebars, however the deluxe does give you the added features as mentioned above.
Hope that helps.
