The Mini Kick® Scooter was developed by Micro-Mobility Systems, Switzerland, maker of quality scooters and kickboards.
The Mini Kick Scooter has won several awards for its quality, durability and fun:
⋅ Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold and Platinum Award Seals for Best Toy in 2011.
⋅ Parent's Choice Approved Seal in 2011.
⋅ Best Scooter for Pre-Schoolers' by Toy Report in 2009.

The quality construction is what makes the Mini Kick unique, and its 3-wheel lean-to-steer design provides an element of fun, while teaching balance and coordination. The lean-to-steer design allows children to use their body weight to control the steering, giving them a feeling of stability as they gently curve from right to left.
The Mini Kick's polyurethane wheels are of highest quality, creating an exceptionally smooth glide and a surprisingly quiet ride, a joy for parents and children alike. The Mini can be ridden inside while learning because the Polyurethane wheels won't leave black marks on the floor.
The Mini is low-to-the-ground and large enough for both feet, making it easy for riders to hop on and off or to switch from pushing to simply enjoying the ride. The Mini's light weight (only 3.3 lbs), makes it easy for young kids to control and maneuver and convenient to pick up and carry when need be. The rear 'spoon' brake provides additional control, adding to the safety and fun. Learning to ride the Mini is easy and intuitive for even the youngest kids. The older children become proficient with the leaned-to-steer, appearing to be almost 'surfing' the sidewalk, as they curve right and left. Parents love the Mini Kick because their children ride it daily, year after year.
All products by Micro-Mobility, Switzerland have modular construction, which means that all parts are replaceable, so the scooters last, virtually forever. The Mini scooter makes scooting fun for young children as well as helping to develop their balance, coordination and motor skills.
