SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2020

Micro Maxi Deluxe

This Micro Maxi Deluxe is an excellent toy for children ready for the transition to a skateboard or even a two-wheeled scooter later on! The Deluxe features two front wheels making it much more secure than traditional 2-wheel ride-ons. The construction is substantial and yet is remarkably light and easy to maneuver. The lighter material gives the rider the ability to perform tricks sooner than they might with a traditional metal scooter. The deck of the scooter is wide and long for one or two feet with a good gripping surface that keeps feet from slipping off and is even sturdy enough to hold smaller adults. The big difference here is that you don’t turn the front wheel like a standard scooter, you lean left or right. Therefore, it acts more like a skateboard and/or snowboard, which, once again, serves as a great transition tool for kids. When riding it, kids can let go of the handlebars (carefully!), and it’s like riding a skateboard. The handlebars easily adjust up and down, and the brake pad is effective, prominent, and easy to use. It goes over bumps much easier than a standard 2-wheel scooter, and it jumps better too! The wheels glide smoothly over tough surfaces like concrete and asphalt. After a big day of riding, it cleans up quickly so that it’s ready for the next adventure.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
