DS2 just turned 5 and we got the 3 wheeled microscooter for him.

His balance is quite bad, he couldn't get on with one of the cheaper 3 wheel scooters and as for a 2 wheel scooter, no chance. He gets on great with the micro scooter though, he can balance much better and they go quite fast.

DS1 on the other hand got on fine with a cheaper scooter and now races along on 2 wheels, has done since he was 5 (he's 6.9 now).

Ds is 6 and loved his 3 wheel micro scooter. Now too small, have tried bog-standard 2 wheelers and he really doesn't like them. So have just ordered the maxi-micro, whch is much more grown-up looking but still has 3 wheels.

The maxi microscooter is the one we bought too Posey. It was very expensive but I figured that DS2 will be able to use it for the next few years.

The 3 wheeled ones have some new bright colours coming out soon, so you might find that the original ones get reduced
