Just kickin' it! CLOSED

It has always frustrated me that most clothes, toys, and products designed for babies and toddlers can only be used for a short period of time. You spend a fortune on things that are grown out of or tossed aside in just a few blink-of-an-eye months. That's why I was intrigued by Kickboard USA's Mini Micro 3in1 - a scooter designed to grow with your child.

The Mini Micro 3in1 can be used from age 1 all the way up to age 5. It has 3 different age-appropriate styles of ride, starting with a ride-on seat at age 1, a Mini scooter with short O-bar steering at age 2, and the Mini Micro 3-wheel kickboard scooter with T-bar at ages 3-5.

Here's Carina using the ride-on seat (ages 1+). She scoots across the floor and exclaims, "weeeee!" We've been itching to take it outside for a couple weeks now but it has been so cold and now with 3 feet of snow on the ground it's looking like we'll keep it inside for a little longer. If you're crazy enough {like us} to let your kid ride it in the house, take comfort in the fact that the wheels are smooth and sturdy and won't scratch up your floor.

I love how simple and user friendly the steering is. You just tilt the bar to the right to turn to the right, or to the left to head off in that direction. We haven't had to use the brake in the back yet, but I'm glad it's there.

Carina isn't quite coordinated enough to use the short O-bar (designed for ages 2+) without the seat yet, but she does enjoy trying. She also likes to line up all of her princesses and let them ride on it. "Princesses scoot!"
As she grows older, the short O-bar can be replaced with a T-bar (below, top right). In addition to the interchangeable steering methods, every part is replaceable. So, if a wheel gets worn out or a hand grip tears, it can be easily replaced. It seems to me that it would take a long time to get to this point, though; the materials and construction of the scooter are solid.
