Back in the day, wheeled toys for small children were a little underwhelming. A plastic Big Wheel looked great, but provided a rough and unpleasant ride (especially if the wheels were dented); a bike with training wheels was slow and clumsy to turn, threatening to topple if you turned too quickly; training roller skates couldn’t build much momentum and translated every bump in the sidewalk straight to our rattling teeth.
So we’re a little jealous of kids these days, who get to use the Kickboard USA Maxi Kick Scooter instead! This fabulous little scooter for kids is easy and intuitive for small children to learn, and it goes so fast that your kindergartener will outpace bigger kids in the park.
The Maxi Kick Scooter has a three-wheeled design that’s stable but nimble; the adjustable pilot stick handle lets kids curve and carve as though they’re riding a skateboard. The key to steering the Maxi Kick Scooter is leaning, or “surfing the sidewalks,” which may sound a bit tricky – but trust us, your kid will pick it up in no time at all. An intuitive “spoon” brake in the rear provides quick and easy stops, and the Italian-made scooter wheels glide along with unbelievable smoothness.
When the Micro Scooter company of Switzerland was designing the Maxi Kick, they used the input of kids all over the world, so the result is guaranteed to please. The adjustable handle and reinforced fiberglass body of the scooter ensure that your child will be able to use it for years and years, and the 120 pound weight limit gives kids a lot of growing room. And it only weighs 5.5 pounds! The Kickboard USA Maxi Kick Scooter is recommended for ages 5 and up.
Easy to maneuver, easy to learn, adjustable handlebar

We bought this scooter a few years ago for our now 6 year old. It has grown with her and we use it all the time! I'm now coming back to buy a second one for her younger brother who has outgrown the younger child model. They are perfect for walks that would be too long for little legs. We throw them in the trunk of the car on road trips, too. Perfect to get a little energy out on the way, fun once we get to our destination too. Our son has some gross motor issues and had no problem picking this up and using it. Can't say enough good things about them!
