Every Parisian Kid has One of These

By jordanferney |

Soon after we got to Paris I noticed that just about every kid walking down the street had one of these Micro Scooters. They come in several colors and are Swiss Designed with three wheels for better balance and they have a reputation for good quality. My friend in NYC said she sees them a lot there too. We recently picked one up for our three year old to use on the way to the park and after a week or two he has gotten pretty good.

    I live in Switzerland, and if you think they are popular in France you should seem then here – even the post office sells them! My girls love them too – and my 2 year old is like a pro. Only problem is I keep tripping over them in our apartment!

    Since I’m in Switzerland, we have three Micros, of course, and parts of at least three others that have met their various demises. Seems like every kid in Europe has those. When my son was three, we took his Micro instead of a stroller with us on our two Paris trips and it worked great since strollers are a hassle to take on the Metro. Have fun! Now you’ll just have to run to keep up with Moses :)

    I think scooters are PERFECT for “city kids!” My children love zooming around Boston on their scooters. Our hilly neighborhood and tiny apartment don’t work well for bikes, so scooters are the best outdoor entertainment for us. They don’t take up a lot of space in the apartment, ours even fold up and they are not hard to carry if they get sick of riding them. We’ve even taken them on the subway (folded) and then used them all day for touristy outings. My kids never complain about being tired of walking, because they are scooting! So much more fun than walking. We also talk extensively and regularly about safety, so I feel comfortable with them riding the scooters all the time. Love them!

    London Kids Love them too. Seriously EVERYWHERE you turn you’ll see a kid with a micro and a mum with a bugaboo :D
