    Aren't these things like $30 at Kmart

    •  

      price difference thanx to the badge "Swiss made", it's like $20 Kmart hairdryer to $700 Dyson hairdryer. Everything has its own price tag, can take forever to argue.

        These are way better quality (all the materials) and steering dynamic (leaning vs turning the handle) than Kmart variety. Our kids have had for about 2 yrs now - and still in great shape after much abuse - maxi for my daugher, now 7, mini for my son, now 5 1/2. Will prob buy a maxi for him as our 18 month old son is now taking over his mini - so thanks for the post OP.

          @belbo, in your experience, would you recommend a mini as a starter scooter (e.g. for a 2-5yo)?

          Just from looking at the pictures, I'm wondering if a maxi with the handle bars pushed down all the way is basically the same thing as the mini except it can grow with the child.

          @damfrog: Would not recommend Maxi for a 2-4 yo. Maybe 4 or 5 yo if tall for their age (like my daughter who started on Maxi at appx 5 yo). Maxi is too high and heavy/ stiff for younger and smaller kids to control by leaning with their weight. Minis not only have lower handlebar but also smaller, lighter and easier to steer. We also have a kiddie seat for the mini - easily clicks in in place of the handlebar - and has 2 height positions. Our 5 1/2 yo son started on that when he was appx 3 (can't remember exactly when we got them). Seat is now back on for our 1 1/2 yo son -although at the moment he is just pushing it around like a walker. Not sure when deal or stock runs out - but since it is easy to return to DJ's you could buy both - then have your kid try them out in a store - and return the one you don't want or need (or if the maxi, keep it for when they are older).

          Bought a Maxi. Used cashrewards too. Thanks OP.

          @belbo: Looks like we actually bought these in Sept 2013 - ie nearly 4 yrs ago. So son was nearly 2, daughter was about 3 1/2 - but v tall for her age. I'm even more impressed how they've lasted now ! Son's one has a bit of a crack in the front - got it recently - slamming into walls - but no effect on functionality.

    This "two front wheels and one back" design is horrible for stability and learning to steer. I don't recommend them.

      Horrible in italics. Strong views clearly. May be useful to explain the basis for your view and what alternative design you endorse. Great for steering and stability in our experience.

    •  

      Maybe you're thinking of the cheapo turn-to-steer versions. I would agree that those are horrible - and for more reasons than just steering and stability.

    I doubt it's really Swiss, if it was, it would look like this one…

    Swiss Made Scooter Micro

    Great scooters that will outlast and out perform the cheapies but don't get suckered…Swiss design and Swiss made are not the same. Just checked our Micro Mini and it's stamped "Made in China".

    Where are the scooters and kickboards manufactured?

    Many of our scooters and kickboards are manufactured with the highest standard of quality control at an ISO-certified manufacturing plant in China. We also have a new factory in Germany which makes several models of Micro Scooters.

    •  

      Yep. DJ's product details say nothing about Swiss design or manufacture. Not sure why OP put that into the heading - but it should be changed or deleted because it is not accurate. I don't really care because I know the product - and couldn't care where it was designed or made.

  •  

    Lol, they are not Swiss watch. Good at making one thing doesn't translate into everything else. Of course there are baby troller made by BMW and in Germany , as well as LV nappy made in France and Gucci baby car seat made in Italy… enjoy

  •  

    These are fantastic quality. We bought one for our 2-year old two years ago and it is still his favourite mode of transport.

    My REID Indy Scooter deal is still live at $48 (+$8.95 shipping if you can't pick up in store, free shipping on orders over $70)

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/303950

    Still waiting from a response from the bloke who was going to make a direct comparison between the Indy and a Mini Micro. From my small examination of a Mini Micro, the Indy is at least comparable in quality and you can buy 2 for the price of one!

  •  

    thanks
    added a cheap item to get free shipping, and with 10% off GC and cashrewards its ~$85

    hopefully the newly turned 2 year old gets plenty of use out of it
