I,m trying to find the cheapest as got a triple bday coming up ..(well in 2 days ).I didn't even know what these were but have been told says they are worth every pound ,especially as one of the children has balancing issues.
Any bargain hunters out there?

You wont get them any cheaper than the rrp price usually. They even keep their value second hand and dont go for much less.

If you want the maxi micros (which i recommend as theyre excellent) then you will almost certainly have to suck it up and pay full price, because I know I searched for months thinking i might get a bargain somewhere but it doesnt happen

79 euro is about 59 pounds

14.95 shipping ( euro) which is about a tenner.

wonder why its cheaper in germany, considering theyre made in UK?

Maybe taxes?

bran why is everything cheaper abroad!!

My older children (age 8 when they got them) have gone for the two-wheeler sprite which is a bit cheaper. Same make and quality. My youngest has balance issues so will probably still need three wheels when we upgrade from a micro.

Bran why do you think they are made here?

this www.micro-scooters.co.uk/community/all-about-micro/ leadds me to belive they are zurich based or german anyway..

I thought they were made on mersea island

Branleuse Tue 03-Nov-15 16:12:31

thats what i was told anyway, but looks like youre right. Its just head office on west mersea

Just out curiosity I added 3 to the basket and estimated shipping and it was still 14.95 for all 3 - anyway, that came to 255 euros which is about £181 - so the equivalent of getting 1 free smile
