How it all began
Weekday mornings can be a battlefield, when you have children who are full of energy and yet reluctant to go to school. Let's be honest, there are only so many times you can ask a child to clean their teeth and put their shoes on without feeling like you're going a little bit nuts! When we discovered the wonder that is the Mini Micro, we felt our prayers had been answered. Suddenly, our children were ready and raring to go every morning, all for the thrill of scooting to school. Our children needed the opportunity to expend their energy before going into the classroom, rather than being bundled into the car and the 25 minute scoot to school each morning proved the perfect answer...and their teachers noticed a difference in their concentration levels too. It was then that we realised that travelling by scooter can transform everyday life. Scooting is greener, healthier and so much more fun. It’s why we set up Micro Scooters and a scooting movement was founded. Since then, we have revolutionised the school run for over 2 million children (and their frazzled parents) who now regularly scoot to and from school every day.
We know that small changes can add up to make a big difference. We like to call them Micro habits. As mums we’re are constantly worrying that the family needs to eat more healthily and exercise more. At Micro, we believe scooting at least 1 mile every day should be the added component of your 5-a-day. We believe we play a valuable role in supporting families to live healthy, active, guilt-free lifestyles by providing solutions that foster long lasting habits to last a lifetime.
