2 or 3 wheelers? 

3 wheel scooters are perfect for kids who need help with confidence and stability on wheels

  • The Mini Micro and Maxi Micro Deluxe scooters are self-standing scooters which are great for developing balance with good safety design.
  • perfect choice for improving confidence and co-ordination.
  • use lean to steer meaning you lean in the direction you want to go and the wheels will turn in that direction. This innovative lean to steer style is easy to learn and has been designed to develop co-ordination as they ride.

2 wheel scooters are ideal for kids who are confident and have good balance on the deck of the scooter.

  • steer like a bike, turning the handles in the direction you want to go.
  • If your child hasn’t had a scooter before but has experience on a bike then a 2 wheeler with familiar steering is a great option.
