When Josie collected $5 from the tooth fairy she declared she was going to save her money to buy a scooter — a pink one!
Josie has had a lot of experience with scooters. In fact, when we toured preschools back when she aged out of Early Intervention, she wanted to go to the school with the red scooter!
I was looking for a sturdy scooter that would be easy for Josie to maneuver.
I asked around and did some research online. It wasn’t until we spent the weekend in NYC and pretty much every kid was riding by on a Micro Kickboard scooter, that I finally made my decision. I mean, there were 2-year-olds expertly maneuvering the streets of Manhattan riding on one of these scooters!
Josie didn’t have to wait for the tooth fairy to visit again. Her new Micro Maxi Kickboard was on our doorstep a few days later. We couldn’t wait to bring her over to the rail trail to try it out.
Her sisters were there to lend a hand until she got the hang of it.
Look at Josie go!
Plus, how cute is that unicorn helmet!
According to the Micro Kickboard website:
The Micro Maxi Kickboard is the highest rated scooter for ages 5 to 12. Kids love the ride, and you will love the years of fun and exercise it gives, making it one of the best value presents you can buy your child. The smooth gliding Maxi has a curving and carving action that allows kids to surf the sidewalk like a skateboard, with the handlebar providing greater control and maneuverability. Kids use their body weight and handlebar to lean into a turn, resulting in smooth, safe turns. The Micro Maxi has the smoothest, quietest ride available thanks to high quality polyurethane wheels and a flexible fiberglass reinforced deck, which together absorb bumps in the sidewalk. Safety certified by the CPSC, the Micro Maxi is recommended for kids up to 110 lbs. Its exceptionally strong construction is flexible and light weight, making it a great cruising scooter for urban and suburban neighborhoods alike. Many kids use their Micro Maxi to ride the sidewalk to school.
