This 60 second(ish) video will explain the differences between the Mini Micro Classic and Mini Micro Deluxe scooter.
The Mini Micro Classic and Mini Micro Deluxe are similar in the following ways;
- the stem of both scooters can be entirely removed (very quickly) if for example you want to take your scooter on holiday or even for easier storage at home.
- lean and steer scooting style. It means a child must lean in the direction they want to go. This technique of steering helps to build a child’s coordination and fine motor skills.
- strong rear brakes. Some scooters don’t have them! The brake on a Mini Micro is easy to use, sturdy and strong.
- lightweight aluminium frames. Mini Micro scooters have a lightweight frame making it easy for a child to manage the scooter confidently. A child will be able to easily lift and carry the scooter over kerbs for example.
- the footplate of the scooter is in a set position. It does not swing so wont hit little ones ankles.
- 3 puncture and mark free wheels make the scooter suitable for indoor and outdoor use. They also mean a child doesn’t have to balance on the scooter – they can just get on and scoot off.
- Replacement parts. This is what really sets the Mini Micro apart from other scooters. Every single part of it is replaceable. And we’ve made it our promise to you to not only stock every single part, have them available 24/7 via our website we also have instructional videos showing you how quick and easy it is to make a repair to a Mini Micro if required.
