Quick Overview Of Micro Kickboard
Micro Kickboard created this particular for a little more sustainable usage in mind, so we have the three modes, as mentioned earlier of adjustments. Apart from this specific unique feature, let’s have an overview of the overall built.
Parental Push Bar
If your kiddo is not ready for scooting him/herself yet, a parental push bar is beneficial for him/her at this stage. This Micro Mini product comes with a parental push bar that you can adjust to different lengths. So, this is quite a handy feature!
Sit and Scoot
When the kid grows a little older and s/he can sit and use their feet properly, it’s time for them to be on their own. So, remove the push handle and adjust the seat height as required. Your toddler can now sit and push the kickboard using their feet.
The Kick-Scooter Mode
The kickboard’s wheels are made with Polyurethane. So this has a good run at some of the bumpy roads of your daily roads. But it is recommended that you should supervise your kid while outside of the house. Also, the wheels don’t leave imprints. So, it can you and your kid can use it indoors.

Assembly Guide (5 Steps)
Since the product has more than one mode, at first, it may seem not very clear to assemble and adjust. But the main assembly is quite simple. The complexity comes from different adjustment modes. Let us follow the simple steps for a quick start.
Step 1: Move the seat height adjusters onto the handlebar. While doing so, you are required to press the red steering clip shortly. Slide the first handlebar first and the second adjuster after that.
Step 2: Place the handlebar into the cavity. Attach properly by lining up the flat edge with the corresponding flat edge hole.
Step 3: Rotate the footrest as needed. Use the Allen key to tighten if it feels loose even after proper rotation.
Step 4: Attach the seat by placing it over the handlebar. Use the plate and the connector screws properly. Tighten the top and bottom screws alternatively to have a proper attachment.
Step 5: If you need the parental push bar for your toddler, insert the arm adapter into the seat’s rear. Align the flat edge of the parental bar with the flat edge of the hole. Attach the bottom plate properly by sliding it over the handlebar ridges securely. You can adjust the length of the parental push bar by using the black clamps.
i) If you want to have the tallest setting, use both adjusters.
ii) For younger toddlers, remove one or more adjuster(s).

Before buying the product, let’s have a quick look at the unique features of this product. We collected these from different user feedbacks and built comparisons.
2. Three Adjustable Modes for Different Growth of Age
Earlier, we have described that this product has growth adjustments in three phases (see the Highlight section). It is often frustrating for kids that they cannot play with the same riding toys for an extended time. Even when they buy their first bicycle or scooter, they outgrow the rides very quickly.
So, this particular product will help to sort out that problem at least marginally.
3. Handy for Parents
For no less than three reasons, this kickboard is handy for parental usage. Firstly, it has a push bar for parents who want to take the kids outdoors and walk or jog with them.
Secondly, the polyurethane wheels do not leave pressure marks on the floors. So, parents do not need to worry about indoor maintenance.
Lastly, the sustainable feature is a significant relief for parents who are budget conscious. The sustainable feature also helps the kid to have challenges that are complex for their age. For example, they can try the Stand-Kick mode before reaching that age group. This sustainable feature is helpful for parents who want their kids to learn quicker.
4. Smooth Riding Experience
Three-wheel kickboards are usually smoother compared to two-wheelers for kids. The polyurethane wheels can withstand everyday road bumps. The parental push bar is also flexible enough for parental control that does not affect your kid’s riding experience.
5. Better Balance Control
Lean-To-Steer is a system developed for flexible balance control for kids who use their whole body’s motor control. This technology is used in this kickboard, which gives your kid a full-body balance. This practice also develops a kid’s motor balance.
