    Our micro scooter has a little Swiss flag symbol on it ☺️.

    Eta, sorry think you were speaking of globber?

    Op we just got our DS the mini micro scooter and love it. Although he's already mastered it and is pretty fast! I would buy the O bar to use in the beginning unless you child is quite tall, but my DS just turned 2 so if yours is closer to 3 you probably don't need it.

    Thanks for all the replies. I hadn't heard of the globber so I'll have a look into it but at the moment I don't think I have to worry much about the weight limit as my 2 year old eats like a knat and is only 12kg so don't see him being a chunky monkey anytime soon! I think I will end up just going for the micro mini as everyone seems very pleased with it.

    You buy it separately, comes with a seat as well but you can remove it so that you're just using the O-bar which is lower than the handle bar it comes with. We got the scooter for DS for Christmas, so not yet 2, and the handle bar is a little high so the o-bar has been great for learning. We don't use the seat, but it's good for toddlers who haven't been on a scooter at all to help them feel comfortable on it.

    We bought the seat and o bar when my daughter got hers (first birthday). She used the seat first and then the O bar is still perfect (2yr9months) as it's the right height to help her feel confident on the scooter. I think that's why she picked it up so quickly as her weight distribution over the handle bar makes it more stable and controlled for them.
