    Default Scooter for 2 year old

    I have had loads of cheap scooters and nothing compares to the micro.

    My eldest got given a mini micro for her 3rd birthday from my MIL and it lasted until she was 6. The only thing that went wrong with it in that time was the plastic part where you stand snapped from years in the sun. Otherwise, it was still suitable for her at 6 years of age.

    I got all my kids a micro scooter for Christmas from Santa and they are the most used presents they received. My 3 year old got given the micro scooter and she loves it. My 5 and 7 year old got the maxi micro scooter which has a height adjustable handlebar. Micro scooters are very expensive but so worth it. The mini micro scooter cost me $130 and the maxi micro scooters were $200 EACH but so worth it. I would never buy any other kind of scooter again.

    ETA - the globber is very similar to the maxi micro with height adjustable handlebars and same weight limit (50kg)

    @ArthurDent it should come with a guarantee. I'd be contacting micro about it if it fell apart.

    The main problem with the micros is the weight range is less than the globber which is why we went with them.
    She said the globber fell apart (I think) not the micro

    I researched (well googled on a few commutes to work) and found the Globber is made by the guy who invented the micro. He went out on his own, increased the weight and handlebar locking and height. Same factories etc so in reality they should be much of a muchness.

    Yeh they look very similar. I googled as I'd never heard of globber until this thread.

    I actually went to buy new micros for the kids for Christmas and the sales assistant talked me into the gobbler / globber (NFI which one it is) as it held a higher weight and my son is heavy. She said they were made by the same company and I didn't check but clearly that was wrong

    But I'm happy with them. Every other scooter we've had was a micro.

    Just doing my own googling and the micro scooter was invented by a Swiss man and apparently the globber is French. Is this true? Can anyone link about the Swiss guy inventing the globber as I can't find anything. Thanks

    Not sure but the sales assistant told me they were French.
