Observe any small child in the area and they will be accessorised by one object – a Mini Micro Scooter. These ingenious devices allow a child to ‘pavement surf’ (at least that’s what the company web site trendily calls it) on a plastic board attached to a T-bar for steering. They come in pink for girls and blue for boys, and are the mode of transport du jour for under fives.
Naturally I will sound like the typical boastful mother when I say that my toddler boasts some of the most impressive scooting talent I have seen in a child his size. But his ability to slalom around objects such as lampposts, pedestrians and dogs at high speed constantly amazes me. And it isn't just me. Everywhere we go, his sheer speed, accompanied by a determined little expression, elicits glances, smiles, comments, or occasionally looks of horror, from passers-by.
So now we are a two scooter household….I guess you could say that this is a brand that truly has my loyalty.
