Toddler Scooter that _doesn't_ steer?

Can anyone recommend a scooter for a 3/4 year old, that has a fixed front wheel so doesn't steer? DD has a scooter (one that goes from 4 wheels to 3 to 2), but can't learn to ride because she just can't keep the handlebars straight. I've run out of patience, so thought if I could get her one that doesn't steer, she could start wth that to build up her confidence. Any thoughts?

All the kids where I live have micro scooters. John Lewis stock them they also have their own website where you can see the full range. The steering is fixed, it has 3 wheels and its really light but also very sturdy. My DD loves hers. hths!

def the mini micro scooter, ELC now sell a very similar looking one but I'm not sure how it compares in terms of lightness and quality.

The mini micro scooter is great. The handlebars are fixed, but the steering works as the child shifts their bodyweight from side to side.

My 2yo is whizzing around like a maniac in his.

Another yes for the mini micro. DS loves his. If you're happy with either red/pink option I found getting a discount code for jojomamanbebe with free delivery was the cheapest way to to get one. That said, I wish we'd paid extra for one of the limited edition colours!
