3 Wheel Scooters for Older Children
Maxi Micro Scooter
This scooter is expensive but you get a durable scooter which is designed to last. They have a good resale value on sites like ebay too. The scooter has modular parts which are all replaceable so it should in theory last forever. It definitely can be passed onto siblings.
It's aimed for kids aged 6 to 10 but younger kids have used this scooter too (some as young as 4).
It features a height adjustable handlebar. The wheels are 120mm wheels at the front and a 80mm wheel at the back. They are made of high quality PU and offer a really smooth, quick ride along the pavements.
It doesn't fold but you can take the handlebar out of the base for storage or for travel.
It's slightly heavier than the mini micro but still really lightweight at just 5.5 pounds or 2.5kg.
It's on the more expensive side but you a really paying for the high quality parts which are durable, strong and will last. It offers a very quiet and smooth ride, there won't be any rattling parts on a maxi micro scooter.
The Iscoot is another 3 wheel scooter designed for kids aged 6 and older.
I actually bought this for a friend's son who was age 6 at the time and wouldn't go on 2 wheel scooters.
The reports back were that he loved it and used it a lot.
The scooter has a folding mechanism that is great for storing, carrying and transporting a scooter in the car.
It has a height adjustable handlebar so will grow with your child. The handlebar adjusts from 690mm to 840mm
On paper, this scooter looks good and it does have some very good reviews on amazon. However, the reviews aren't as consistently good as for the micro maxi but it's over half the price cheaper. The maxi micro scooter is also more lightweight which can make it easier to control and go a bit more quickly too.
