Thanks to Micro Kickboard for providing me with a scooter for review. All opinions expressed here are my own. -Sarah

Micro Kickboard Mini 3-in-11

I am an oldest child: responsible, independent, a rule-follower, and rather fond of predictability. (Just ask Meagan, a youngest child, about how we offset and complement one another in our working relationship.)

As a mom of three, though, I’m raising an oldest, a middle, and youngest child, and I find it fascinating to see birth order dynamics play out (sometimes as expected, other times less so). My littlest is a wild child: spirited, adventurous, full of mischief, at once a flirt and a bully, and – above all – determined to do things the bigger kids are doing. 

Whether it’s feeding herself with a spoon (no help, please), climbing ladders (don’t worry, mom – I’ve got this!), or insisting on using the big kid LEGOs (Duplo? Nah.), this one won’t be slowed down by the fact that she’s not quite a year and a half old. Where they go, she follows, fast and dangerous.

(Speaking of dangerous, I lined these three up on the sidewalk to show you all the scooter we’re giving away – the rest of the scootering we did was indoors and at laughably low speeds. Violet needs, and will have, a helmet before we really hit the pavement. πŸ™‚ )

Anyway, I was excited when Micro Kickboard offered Violet the chance to try out the Mini Micro 3-in-1 Scooter. Until now, she’s been pushed in a stroller or pulled in a wagon when the older two ride their bikes, so I knew she’d LOVE a set of wheels of her own. The 3-in-1 is a convertible scooter for kids ages 1-5, with three different set-ups depending on the child’s size and ability. A sturdy little seat allows toddlers to sit and push themselves with their feet rather than stand on the kickboard; when they’re ready to stand and scoot, a shorter “O-Bar” provides the right grip at the right height; and finally, a traditional “T-Bar” replaces that for ages 3 and up.

The Mini Micro was easy to assemble (no tools required besides the allen wrench provided, which attaches and removes the seat), and we’ve tried each of the three arrangements to see how they worked. At 18 months, Violet is definitely more comfortable sitting than standing, but she did love trying it the big kid way (middle photo, below). My four-year-old (pictured below, on the right) loved using the scooter with the T-Bar and got the hang of steering and braking pretty quickly. He’s always been a trike-and-bike kid, so this was mostly new for him.

Again, helmet-less photos for staging purposes only. Must protect that baby-mullet!

I love how easily the scooter converts from one set-up to the next, and the quality of the materials and construction seems a step above what you’d find in the big box stores. And the colors! I love the variety offered, and the fact that there are several truly gender-neutral choices in there. It was hard to choose, but I went with purple (my default for little Violet, ha).

And now the fun part: YOU can win a Mini Micro 3-in-1 Scooter for your child this week!

To enter to win, just leave a comment on this post. Tell me about the birth order dynamics in your family. Tell me about the kid who’d love to scoot around on this. Or just tell me you want to win. Good luck, and happy scooting!
