Is the micro scooter too expensive? I'm not an expert but when you see kids about the place these seem to be very fab and easy to ride. My older boys had this type of scooter from about 6/7 years old and they were excellent. Years of use.
I wouldn't be surprised if dd1 was proficient on it pretty quickly! They are fairly easy to ride. One of my sons found balance and coordination hard at that age but even he was soon zooming about on his. Could your dd2 have dd1's old scooter, if she got a new folding type? Or how about an ebay 2nd hand mini micro? I really suspect that the ozbozz would not be a patch on a mini micro, sadly. It looks far less stable and easy to ride with the close together wheels.
We're not in the UK. The mini micros are 65 each here and the maxi is 115 - way over my budget although I do agree they look great. The Ozbozz First is only 25 and the other one is 20.
We are in the countryside and have to drive to school so the scooters are for taking on days out, walks etc during the summer and not sure I can justify paying so much. I think it would be different if we would be using them for everyday school run or something.
I'll look on ebay for second hand but I think delivery costs might be a problem.
Still hoping to hear from someone who has used that Ozbozz First Scooter. Thanks again everyone.
