Over the last few weeks I have been having lots of fun testing out this fabulous Adult scooter from micro-scooters. A few years ago my daughter was lucky enough to review a maxi micro scooter. Update 2 years 9 months later and My daughter still loves her scooter. Most importantly the scooter is still going strong. Everywhere we go it is "Mum can I take my scooter?"
Every afternoon at home time from school I have to take her scooter up so she can ride home. I must admit, I love her scooter too. I always ride it up to school getting a few odd looks as a 'woman is riding a child's scooter'. The odd comment from passer bys ' Wait till I tell her you have been riding it'.
Things have all changed now as Mum no longer has to watch her daughter having fun. I have been lucky enough to be sent an adult one to road test. Every spare moment we get, we have been going out on the scooters and having lots of fun, whilst exercising too.

My thoughts on the Micro Floral White Scooter
I have always taking the children out on their scooters over the years. As mentioned I often borrow theirs for a quick 5 or 10 minutes. It is only in the last few years that I realised that you could even get scooters suitable for Adults. It was only on a trip to London a couple of years ago that I saw quite a few people in suits riding them to and from work. This got me intrigued, I briefly did some research online, but ultimately chickened out as I was worried about what people would think.. ( On a side note I once bought some roller boots, wore them once. Whilst out someone shouted "R u on somet love?!!!" I never wore them again.!).
Now that I am older and wiser? I tend to not be bothered about what people think, once I hit 40, I had a new mantra " I will do WHAT I WANT and I DON'T CARE what you think". Should have done this when I was 20!! Anyway enough off topic, back to the scooter..
The scooter is quick to assemble, folds in seconds, looks great, supports my weight ok, and feels safe to ride. The break on the rear wheel is effective, even going downhill I felt in control, being able to stop in a timely manner. It has a nice kick stand to lean scooter up when parked. Like most scooters the handle bar height is adjustable, I noticed my hubby having sneaky go. He changed the height of the handlebars. Typically he never put it back to where I had set it for my height. The cheeky monkey or words to that affect!!
First impressions of riding the scooter are:- At first I was slightly wobbly, but soon found my rhythm, my daughter was laughing as she sped away from me, I now can keep up with her. Really. I can now manoeuvre round corners, accelerate quickly, brake, hop up curbs. I even go in the tuck position going downhill, to build speed. Usually panicking if I go too fast, a sight for sore eyes!
I have had the odd comment or stare, but couldn't give a monkeys. It is great fun a nice way to spend time with my daughter, I have enjoyed going out on my own too. I feel in more control than on a push bike. I can easily stop and start, the beauty of a scooter is how easy it is to fold down. It is not too heavy to carry, I managed to carry it for 1 mile round some shops, easily. On a recent train journey it was ideal. The guard on the train was not allowing any more cycles on board, my scooter was tucked away on the luggage rack. Sorted.
Overall then, I am mightily impressed with the scooter. I would whole heartedly recommend it to anyone, who is looking to join in with kids, perhaps as an alternative commuting method or just to have some good clean adult fun!!
I think that is the key word FUN. We often become very serious as we get older, always trying to be responsible for the kids and being set in our ways. I am too serious for sure. This has given me the perfect opportunity to have fun, finally being able to put my roller boot experience to bed!! Over 40 year old Mums of 4 can have FUN. It is allowed. Micro Scooter, I thank you..
I got sent this beautiful scooter to test out and review.
All thoughts are my own honest opinion and I did not get paid for this post ...
