AD – We were gifted the balance bike included in the post for the purpose of this review. All words and opinions are my own.

Micro Balance Bike and Scooter : Kipper is a little ride on mad. However at three he has pretty much outgrown everything we have. I noticed he liked to watch his older brother on his bike and we realised it could be time to introduce Kipper to the concept. So when Micro Scooters got in contact and asked if we would like to review one of their balance bikes I of course said yes.

Kipper was very excited about the prospect of getting his own bike. I opted for a Lightweight Balance Bike because it would be his first experience of having a bike of any kind.  It is one of the lowest weight bikes on the market at just 2.8kg which I hoped would make it easier for him to use. Plus it would also means that if I ended up having to carry it around on a day out it is more than manageable.  He chose a green one which is his favourite colour. I was impressed to find that they had a lots of different colours to choose from including pink, purple, orange, blue, silver and yellow. So there is bound to be something that will resinate with your little one.

The balance bike arrived in a box and all you needed to do was fix the handle bars with the Allen keys provided. The seat height was perfect for him although it is adjustable up to 15.5 inches meaning it will grow with him. It didn’t take long to attach the handle bars which meant he could have a go straight away. Needless to say since then it has come everywhere with us and he’s really enjoying using it.

Things we love about the Micro Lightweight Balance Bike

  • The obvious… it really is lightweight which makes my life so much easier as a parent. Since I know that when we go out there is a good chance at some point I will be carrying it around. Plus it means that Kipper can easily hold it up and it gives him a lot more confidence when handling the bike.
  • The wheels are solid which means I do not have to worry about punctures. It is a very smooth ride and the wheels are designed not mark. So Kipper can ride it inside and outside.
  • As I would expect the quality is second to none. Despite being light it feels substantially made with with good quality materials and fixtures.
  • Designed for children aged 2-5 I expect our balance bike to get a lot of use. The fact that both the handle bars and seat can be adjusted means it will grow with Kipper.
  • Kipper absolutely loves it and calls it his green bike. Whenever we leave the house he asks to take it with him. He has also started to develop a dare devil streak looking for hills to ride up and down. Lifting his feet off the floor. Although he is still learning to stop..

I can not fault anything about the lightweight Micro Balance Bike at all. It has made my life a lot easier too because we now take it out on our walks. So I don’t need to worry about a pushchair and its encouraging  Kipper to become more independent which is great. The balance bike is priced at £59.95 but at the time of writing this post it is currently on offer at £44.95. We have already been asked a number of times while out and about where we got it from and I have recommended it to friends.

Mini Micro Deluxe Scooter

I am not surprised that its such a great balance bike. After all Micro have been producing great scooters for years. Both the boys have had one of their  Micro Mini Scooters since they were small. The wonderful people at Micro have given my readers the chance to win a Mini Micro Deluxe scooter with helmet.

There are lots of colours to choose from. Plus various accessories  so there is bound to be something that will appeal to your little one. I really like the Mini Micro Deluxe because it comes with an adjustable handlebar. This means that Kipper will enjoy it for longer since it will grow with him. Designed to be super sturdy yet light weight enough, that kids to be able to manoeuvre it up and down curbs easily.

    I absolutely love balance bikes, my daughter didn’t need stabilisers after using her balance bike.
    The scooters are brilliant too, they bring so much fun to my children.
    I love seeing the little ones outside playing with their scooters and bikes it beats all the technology these days.

      The balance bike looks fab. Great that it’s so lightweight and can grow with the child

  3. betsy ferguson Reply

    great design on this bike, being super sturdy yet light weight – perfect for days out at the park

  4. Oh this looks great for little ones! We didn’t do the whole balance bike thing, just straight to bikes with stabilisers. I love the colours of this!

  5. Neither of my children had balance bikes but my sister got one of these for my nephew and she says it’s fabulous – he loves it. My daughter has one of the Mini Micro scooters – it’s great, one of the best things we’ve ever bought!

  6. Lyndsey O'Halloran Reply

    Erin has a balance bike and she spends hours on it. They’re so much fun.

  7. Rebecca Nisbet Reply

    This would be perfect for my daughter, her scooter is so old now!

  8. Anthony Harrington Reply

    Perfect for my Grandson, he loves his first Micro Scooter and is about ready to go to the next size

  9. My little newphew’s birthday is coming up and he asked for a bike. I might have to get this for him, lol.

  10. I have been tempted to get my little nephew a balanced bike, he had a scuttle bug but he’s getting so big now! Looks like your little one had lots of fun with the balance bike.

  11. We looked at balance bikes at the weekend, our little one didn’t seem to interested and kept getting off. She was really interested in the scooters though.

  12. Ruth Harwood Reply

    This would be perfect for my daughter she’s just the right age!

  13. Balance bikes are great, definitely the best way for little ones to learn! We absolutely love Micro Scooters, our son wouldn’t be without his!

  14. The bike is cute and looks like it would be fun, but I have to admit that the helmet and the gloves stole the show for me, they are SUPER CUTE!!!

  15. He looks so cute with the bike 🙂 Thank you for the amazing giveaway x

  16. Balance bikes are a great way for kids to learn how to stay on top of a bike. They are so much lighter than a regular bike and kids are less likely to fall down. I wish they had them when I was learning how to ride a bike.

  17. We are so way behind on this. I didn’t know there are such things as balance bikes. That’s a cool way to teach little kids about balance. I wish they will bring this to our market someday.

  18. This is the cutest thing. I love the colors and such a fun designed bike!

  19. I love things that grow with your child. They get attached to things and it is so cool when they can go with them from year to year.

  20. Natalie Burgess Reply

    My little girl would be over the moon to get one of these as a Christmas present! Xx

  21. The balance bike is so useful, especially that it is designed to “grow” with the child. You don’t find these days things that last for so many years.

  22. this is a nice way to help kids learn balance and being independent in the process. in our country, elders would not allow their youngsters to have like these balance bikes for their safety.

  23. That is the cutest little bike! I don’t have kids myself, but I have plenty of friends with little ones the perfect age for this. I will be sure to share it!

  24. Pippa Ainsworth Reply

    Balance bikes are such a good way to get little ones moving, this looks great.

  25. Laura Walker Reply

    My son has this scooter and loves it his sister would love to chase him round on one of her own

  26. These look great, I’ve been looking at balance bikes for my 2year old daughter, she had the micro trike which she loved & it was easy enough to carry home from the school run when she wanted to walk a little, I’m so glad all their products are so lightweight 🙂

  27. Shelley Jessup Reply

    If I was lucky enough to win I would keep this for Evie for when she’s a little older.

  28. Emma Byford Reply

    This would be so awesome for my family! Yes please, fingers crossed!

  29. Chloe Busby Reply

  31. Victoria Prince Reply

    I love their range – they have so much to get young children started on bikes and scooters!

  32. Fiona Johnstone Reply
