WIN a maxi-micro scooter!

maxi-micrototal.jpgWe’ve all raved about the mini-micro scooter more than once before.  Now the great news is that micro has come out with the follow-up version to their best-selling kid’s scooter. The maxi-micro is stable and maneuverable like the mini but is a bit more sturdy, to cater for children from 5 years old.
The board is just a little bit longer and wider and it has two wheels at the back (but very close to each other, so working as just one wheel), and the joystick steer has adjustable height. The look and colour is definitely more grown up, appealing to those children needing an upgrade from the mini.
For added safety you can pair it up with one of their helmets — which look so cool you will be able to convince the most reluctant kid.
The maxi-micro is on sale now worldwide, although in the US it’s marketed as the maxi kick scooter.
Now for the exciting news…  Babyccino has one maxi-micro scooter in black and one micro helmet to give away to one of our readers!! Just leave a comment below by Sunday, June 28th, 2009 and we’ll pick one winner at random.

Good luck!


This give-away is now closed!

My 2.5 yo son found an old plastic scooter in his cousins garage and he loves it (goes around the house with it and even when he needs the toilet he goes there with it!).
These scooters look great and since he is a big boy (he wears clothes for 4-year old boys!) I will eventually buy him a bigger and newer one.

PS but if I win one even better :)

The maxi-micro is fantastic! My daughter just got one for her 5th birthday and she is so fast with it! The problem is my son who is 7 is VERY jalous and they are fighting over the scooter everyday. Can I please win this one and get relieved from this nightmare?! Cheers.

My little boy has been perfecting his micro scooting since he was 18 months old and he could only just peep over the handle bar!
Definitely the best value item I have ever bought for him and he would love to get his sticky fingers on this new one!

Absolutely love these scooters!!! After receiving your communication about the mini-micro- we bought an adult version for our dear friend’s “baby” who just graduated from high school. They are so much fun that my husband and I are in the process of ordering for us. Now- the only person in our family who still needs one is our daughter- Little Miss Smith. Throwing positive energy towards this that we win one!! :)

All that’s good- Holli

Ode to the micro(mini/maxi) scooters :

little scooter you are so cool
when i ride you i’m no fool

other kids may shout and yell
when they see me ring my bell (put one on our mini!)

my need for band-aids(plasters) has disappeared
and thanks to you, i have no fear!

sorry if this is a bit lame..its 11:45 pm and I made it up on the spot..tired..long day…..crossing my fingers for good luck..pick us :-) …good luck to all- anyways!

Help! My daughter is fast growing too tall for her Mini Micro and horror of horrors would like a scooter with flashing pink lights for her 6th birthday. A Maxi Micro would make us all happy!

This is a fantastic product. My daughter rides hers all the time in the neighborhood. Unlike other scooters with the two wheels in the back, this one is so stable. All my neighbors are looking at purchasing one. We are just about to get her a new one. Would love to win one.

My 13 month old can’t get enough of her big sister’s scooter….stands on it and yells until someone pushes her around. It’s only a matter of time before she figures the thing out on her own!

Well-well, let us try our luck here, as my Sasha has just tried her friend’s Mini Micro and she’ll surely enjoy a larger version better as a cherished birthday gift, while I’d rave at my good luck – provided I win it here for free…I love its style and safety – cheers to its European designers!

My little one keeps taking everyone else’s mini-micro scooter in the park — luckily, they are ok with it until they want to use it minutes later. I feel so guilty that we aren’t buying it — due to price & to my spouse’s hesitancy….wish we’d have the fortune of winning….

Katie wants a scooter for her birthday – just like Po!!! Problem is – she’ll be 3 in March. Is 3ft 3 and looks 5. My quandary is ‘is she a mini or maxi micro Teletubby?’

I have been researching these maxi scooters and was thinking of getting one for my tall 4 year old! They look so fun and safe to ride. I would love to win one for him so he can take it along to our camping trip in august.

Just purchased a mini micro for child number 6 but child number 5 has real problems with balance and coordination; the maxi micro would boost his confidence no end and he would be able to be a part of what his siblings are doing. Please make my little boy’s day! Thanks for the chance.

Hi, my son (4 years old) wants so hardly to do kickboard, but he is so awkward… so I bought him a kickboard with 3 wheels but the 2 are at the bottom and his feet always hurts the wheels…
I was looking for a kickboard with the 2 wheels at the front and today I saw a little boy younger than my son with a Micro Scooter so I ran after him and his mom and asked her where I could find this magical kickboard.
She told me she bought in England and she gave me the name of this wonder.
And tonight I googled it and here I am!
Hope you will help my son growing up and have fun!
Best regards from Paris, Céline.
