What they say: "The NEW Mini Micro Deluxe offers an adjustable handlebar - meaning it can grow with the child - as well as a stylish anodised stem to protect the scooter from corrosion, and a raised silicon grip on the deck.

"Its clever and robust design helps children feel balanced when scooting, while the tilt and lean steering allows children to master scooting quickly and develop balance and co-ordination skills. The super strong brake and hardwearing yet lightweight frame allows for easy manoeuvring over kerbs and bumps. Available in a range of colours it's a must-have for children aged 2-5 years."

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

This is the best scooter we have tried. The adjustable handlebar is a great design feature as the scooter will grow with the child. The "lean and steer" scooting style is intuitive. It is sturdy and feels safe with its three wheels so even very young children will learn quickly to scoot confidently.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Every child wants to ride a scooter but oftentimes it's hard work to teach children to develop their confidence riding on one. The Mini Micro Deluxe takes this away. Even at a very young age they can get straight on it and take off. It's a smooth ride, the steering happens intuitively, kids feel safe and confident.

Would you choose this product to win?

Kids love that it's light and easy to handle, they feel safe and confident very quickly. It is great that it comes in so many different designs, children love it and navigate towards this product vs. any other. The adjustable handlebar is a great plus for growing children.

What changes would you make to this product?

I think this is a brilliantly designed product that my children enjoy tremendously. There is not much I can think of to improve this apart from making it foldable. The brake is great but kids typically need to be quite a bit older to learn how to operate it but I don't think there is any other way how the brake could be designed. Overall a brilliant product that I always recommend to friends.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I was really impressed with this scooter, it is very comfortable and adaptable to a child, allowing them to lean to turn. The design of the scooter is lovely, the anodised metal gives it a very modern edge and I love that it grows with the child, allowing them to use it for a long time, unlike some that you have to throw after 6 months to a year.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It has made my life easier as I am not constantly having to turn my daughter as she is not quite able to do that yet, which means I am not chasing after them constantly and can let them ride it properly. I think it is also lightweight which makes it easier to carry, allowing me to carry it easier than the previous one we had.

Would you choose this product to win?

I think this is a modern design, looks good and comes in great colours, making it appealing to all boys and girls. I think it should win because it is a great design, it is very durable and grows with the child. I like that leaning means that it turns automatically making it easier for the younger children to use. A great all round scooter.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing for me I would like to change would be how it goes together, I would have much preferred it to fold rather than come apart into 2 pieces. It is not an issue while using it but if you are trying to carry it while you have your children it is a pain. That was the only thing I didn't like about it, otherwise I could not fault it at all.
