Micro Sprites Micro-scooters –

The Micro Sprite is an excellent all-round scooter, especially for people who’ve not used a two-wheeler before. But while scooters are usually the reserve of children and teens, the beauty of The Micro Sprite is that adults can enjoy it as well. Parents who have children who scoot to school no longer have to run to keep up and will get some fun, healthy exercise too. With summer here, what better way to encourage the family to get out into the fresh air and beat the boredom of the long summer holidays? Which is why we are happy to provide five Micro-scooters to the category winners of the Candis Outstanding Family Award.

The Micro Sprite is Swiss designed and features a lightweight frame, tough PU wheels and an easy folding mechanism, making it perfect to pack away and take anywhere. It is suitable from the age of five years to adult and is priced at £52.00.
