Which scooter for an 8 year old?

When it comes to having fun you can’t beat the great outdoors, can you? Every child should have a scooter to ride on during their childhood, they provide not only fun but teach them so many skills too. Micro Scooters are the home of scooters for children and adults. The company sell a whole range of 2 wheeled scooters and 3 wheeled scooters for kids and adults alike. If you have an active child this scooter would be the perfect choice. So which scooter is best for an 8 year old? You could go for a 2 wheeler micro sprite which is super agile and compact or a more sturdy 3 wheeler such as the maxi micro which adds a bit more stability for beginners.

As well as the award-winning range of micro scooters, you can also pair up with accessories including helmets, lights, bells and safety pads. We all know that safety is paramount when riding a scooter so always make sure your child has a suitable helmet on whilst they are out scooting.

So why scoot?



It is good for the planet for starters. If you are out on a scooter you are not using a car! Plus these scooters are built to last and are fantastic quality. Every scooter is designed with replacement parts so they’re fit for a lifetime of scooting, rather than ending in landfill.
