My dd has a 'my first scooter' from toys r us but it doesn't seem very good for scooting on. She can't even fit both feet on it. Could I have some recommendations on what is the best scooter to get please? We see kids whizzing about on them but dd's only moves as long as she keeps pushing with her leg all the time!

I'll attach a picture of the one she has

Mini micro scooter is the bomb, expensive but has been worth it for us. Dd1 was able to scoot well before her 3rd birthday, dd2 is 20 months and can just about manage one already.

Yup, mini micro. It may be twice the price, but it's ten times as good - speedy, easy to steer, quiet - love ours.

Another vote for mini micro. DD got one for her second birthday and will be upgrading to a maxi micro at Christmas after 2.5 years of solid use, finds it really easy to use and zooms around.

DS has started trying to use DD's scooter and get get round on it already at 21mo! We will be getting him a mini micro for his 2nd birthday just after Christmas.

Mini micro. They are the best. My Dd has been scooting happily on hers since she was about 20 months. They are worth every penny.

Buy them from the micro scooter website or John Lewis.
You don't tend to find them reduced much.
Also look on might get a good second hand one, but they don't sell cheaply either.

Def mini micro! DD1 had a cheap scooter which she struggled with. DD2 then got a mini micro for xmas and it was miles better! DD1 was soooo jealous that her younger sister was whizzing past her! We ended up buying DD1 the maxi scooter and they both whizz along with ease together.

We got our Mini micro from JoJoMamanBebe using a 15% code but they have stopped the codes against scooters. We got the Maxi from Ebay ( they hold their price well)

Purchased smile she'll be able to keep up with the other kids now!

Apparantly they are the best selling toy in John Lewis and have been for years.
Unusual to get consensus on MN, so I think you are onto a winner. Enjoy!
