Hi, DS is 4 soon and would like a scooter for his birthday. He is a beginner and not great at balance, he struggles to pedal a trike.
I was thinking of a 3 wheeler like the micro scooters but he is already over the weight limit for the mini and not sure if the maxi would be more difficult to learn to manouvre on.
Anyone have any tips? Is the weight limit there for a reason?

Maxi is brilliant the lowest height is the same height as a mini and it is very sturdy and will last years

My DS has just turned 4-he has had the maxi micro scooter for around a year now. Gets on great with it, though scares the baby cheese out of me as he goes so fast. Suspect give everyone a laugh as he bombs down hills with me running behind him shouting like a fishwife DS slow down! grin

The Ozbozz trail twister is always a good option too, my little girl has it as i didn't think she was ready for two wheels just yet!

We have the maxi micro and its well worth it. Great 3 wheelers for dc who aren't so great at balancing. But whizzy enough to be fun and for them not to outgrow them in terms of size or cool factor! My 4yo can use either his mini micro or his elder bro's maxi micro very well!

Thanks all, we went for the maxi micro and he is doing well, although steering is taking some practice!
